Mini Review - The Karate Kid

The Karate Kid (out now) was better than I anticipated. A decent remake of the 1984 film which starred Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita. This time it's Jaden Smith (Will's son) and Jackie Chan in the lead roles. It's too long at 140 minutes but it's nice to see a non-animated family film with a decent plot. They make the most of the Chinese locations too. Grade: B+.
