When it was announced that The Karate Kid was going to be remade there were quite a few people over the age of 30 who weren’t keen on the idea. I haven’t seen the original film(s) in years so I didn’t really have a feeling one way or the other.
Will Smith was one of the main reasons the film went ahead as he wanted it to be a star vehicle for his son, Jaden. If I were Will I’d probably use my power and influence to help my family too, but is Jaden actually the right guy for the role? Or did he get the role purely for being Will Smith’s son?
I began watching the trailer as a sceptic, but I can’t deny Jaden has the ‘moves’.
What do you think of the trailer? Has your childhood officially been raped? Or are you actually looking forward to this?
