Jaden Smith is on top of the world right now, although I feel like his parents are going to do their best to keep him level headed. His new movie Karate Kid might be one of the best remakes ever done. Last night as I sat and watched the Karate Kid movie, I expected to see the original movie, but there is no Daniel-son or Mr. Miyagi, who won the Oscar for the original role, in this flick at all.
What we do get from this film is a wild amazing ride of Jaden Smith going from a little boy to Kung Fu warrior. Nonetheless you won’t be disappointed after seeing this movie. After the premiere the original Karate Kid, Pat Macchio said “You know, the writer said to me, Robert Kamen, who wrote the original film, he said, “You know, we never had a premiere.” He said, “Nor an after-party.” He said our after-party kind of lasted 26 years.” Interesting. Meanwhile the original bullies Peter O’Dell and William Zabka had a lot more HATE in their voice saying: ‘It’s like watching your ex-girlfriend get re-married or something, know what I mean?’ O’Dell added: And you’re invited to the wedding.’ Zabka continued: ‘You’re invited to the wedding, but you’re not only invited, you’re giving away the bride.’
I am sure they were just joking but overall the movie was amazing and after seeing Ciara and Jaden Smith hold an impromptu Karate match in a red Michael Jackson jacket, I firmly believe Jaden’s star will rise higher than Michael Jackson’s.
