david_prown_120I just knew I'd like this newest version of "The Karate Kid" and the movie sure did not disappoint.

Set in Bejing, China, essentially the same story as the earlier versions with different characters.

Predictable, likable and emotional with great fight scenes.

Jaden Smith is terrific and a real scene stealer  and Jackie Chan sort of breaks the mold of this traditional roles
and is excellent.

Some good side stories and that don't go to far astray.  Excellent soundtrack and the ending, though
predictable was still terrific.

With the crap in the theatres these days, this move should do well.

Only flaw, 20 minutes+ too long
