If you've seen "The Karate Kid" (1984), the memories will come back during this 2010 remake. That's a compliment.

Fun, and believable, on the most important level: It convinces us that Jaden Smith has what it takes to fight his way to the top.
It's a sign of that pic's dramatic durability that "Kid" manages to be as absorbing as it is, despite its nearly 2-hour running time.
A kung fu kick of a film that hits more than it misses.
Is this Karate Kid as good as the original? No, although it is better than the sequels. But why bother with nostalgia? It's probably good enough.
It's a measure of the times that the new version of The Karate Kid manages to be longer and bigger-budgeted than the original while having lesser impact.
You could also say it's like they're likable tourists on a quest to plunder an endearing movie that didn't need this mediocre remake.
