Original Title: The Karate Kid
Work causes a single mother to move to China with her young son; in his new home, the boy embraces kung fu, taught to him by a master.
12-year-old Dre Parker has moved to China, and finds himself like a fish out of water. He befriends a fellow classmate, Mei Ying, only to make a rival, Cheng, who starts to bully and attack Dre. Soon, Mr Han, the maintenance man of Dre's apartment, fends off Cheng and his friends when they are attacking Dre and signs Dre up to fight in the Kung Fu tournament in return for the bullies laying off of Dre. Dre realizes Mr. Han is much more than a maintenance man, when he's revealed as a master of Kung Fu and Dre soon learns that Kung Fu is about self defense and peace, instead of violence and bloodshed.
So, I just got back from seeing Jaden Smith's first star vehicle The Karate Kid (the movie had been sold out since the 11:15am show) and....wow. I was truly impressed as I only went in with modest expectations. Not only was it a very good remake, it's the best movie so far this summer, and it stands on it's own two feet and surpasses the original in a lot of ways (which one is better will probably be generational. From the standing ovation these kids at the theater I attended gave this film I'm pretty sure from 15 or so on down, it will be this one.) But first off, let me start by saying this:
To anyone who doubts that Jaden Smith can act (which he ironically already proved in The Pursuit of Happiness), is a star, or deserved this movie: See The Karate Kid. I don't care how you see it. Pirated. Bootleg. Or the old fashion way (like I saw it cause I'm cool like that) by buying a frickin' ticket and sitting in an auditorium with a bunch of cheering 10 year olds (I swear I've never seen kids give a movie a damn near standing ovation like they did during this film's finale).
Jaden Smith has just silenced his haters. From here on out, if you don't like Jaden Smith: fine. Whatever petty reason you've given yourself to make you not like an innocent 10 year old. Fine. But you can't say he's not talented. Cause he is. If nothing has proved it to you before, THIS will. He carries the film on his little shoulders, shows leading man qualities (has a 10 year old ever done that?!?!? And Im being serious here). Has a ten year old ever acted in a film and not only carried it but possessed the charm, charisma, quick wit, comedic timing, dramatic presence and physicality of a hero all in the same movie?!?!? I shutter to think, I couldn't think of any leaving the theater. If they have, please point them out to me so I can say bravo to them to.
His performance was truly great and the fact that he did all of his own stunts and clearly learned kung fu and looks not only believable but in command of the craft is some sort of a mini-miracle. This little dude is miniature Will Smith of the highest caliber. He WILL be a star (pun, intended). Only thing can stop that is, well, him. Barring any personal issues, the kid will go far. Very far. He has it all. And as cliché as it may sound the biggest development to come out of the Karate Kid is that "A Star is Born". Don't believe me: watch it for yourself.
But I digress, I only spent so much time on the Jaden issue because all the unwarranted hatred thrown his way is beyond disturbing. I have never seen such vitriolic speech directed towards a kid in my life. Not even the kid from Problem Child and he was a certified a-hole! But anyway, the movie is good. Jackie Chan was surprisingly really good (and I mean really really good like Oscar-nominee good) in a dramatic turn as Dre Parker's mentor. The action was better than the original's and the heart and soul was just as engaging and entertaining. Though lacking the iconic "wax on, wax off"-moment what they do with "jacket on, jacket off" was truly surprising and pretty good stuff when you realize what Mr. Han was really teaching him. Instead of the "Crane Kick" we do have another pose and it's pretty damn good too.
To me, the original will always be special. I remember Daniel-son, and Mr. Miyagi is a fuggin' legend in every sense of the word. I'm actually utterly surprised this remake was so well made and engaging. Even though every one in the theater knew the outcome, everyone was still cheering and/or elated and moved by the movies "big moments". That in itself is pretty impressive. It's like if people were still surprised even though they knew who the killer(s) were in Scream 4 before seeing it. Could you imagine that? Yea, I couldn't either. Which is why I'm surprised at how good this remake was.
Go see it.
I love Kung Foo films , and i wanted to see what this century had in store for The New Karate Kid , and in all honesty , Jaden Smith has chops, the fight scenes where pretty dam good , but his acting was a bit off for someone of his age , maybe it was the writing , i didn't like the way they tried to stereotype black youth into being stupid , and it took a old Chinese man to turn him wise.
Being a lover of original karate kid films i can honestly say this film has really pulled out all the stops to try and move itself away from the original karate kid , im not for one second saying this is a remake , because it simply isn't , im saying its new , its fresh , and Jaden Smith has a big career ahead of him.
So if you like Kung Fo , watch it , its pretty good. :D
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.
12-year-old Dre Parker (Jaden Smith
) and his mother Sherry (Taraji P. Henson
) move from Detroit, Michigan to Beijing, China for her new job. New at the school, Dre incurs the wrath of karate student Cheng (Zhenwei Wang
) when he makes the mistake of speaking to his girlfriend Mei Ying (Wenwen Han
). After a particularly brutal beating by Cheng and his friends outside of Dre's apartment building, during which the maintenance man intervenes to "save" him, Dre learns that Mr Han (Jackie Chan
) is actually a martial arts master and that he's willing to train Dre in self defense. However, Mr Han's "training" seems to consist of Dre taking off and hanging up his jacket over and over and over again. The Karate Kid is a remake of The Karate Kid (1984)
(1984), which was taken from a script by screenwriter Robert Mark Kamen. This new version was written by screenwriter Christopher Murphey. The Karate Kid 2
is on the books, but no release date has been set. Cheng is primarily picking on Dre because Dre developed a crush on Mei Ying, but it is implied that she is Cheng's love interest since their families are friends. After Dre develops a crush on Mei Ying and she reciprocates those feelings, Cheng becomes jealous and vindictive. From then on, Cheng and his gang continually bully Dre without showing or feeling any remorse, guilt, mercy, or pity. As bullies usually do, they attack someone they perceive as being weaker and of a different culture/race, purely for malicious reasons such as this one. They've been taught to think this way by their own martial arts instructor Master Li (Rongguang Yu
) who mistreats them and rewards ruthlessness. Master Li even uses the tag line used by John Kreese (Martin Kove
) in the original movie: "No Mercy." Harry (Luke Carberry
) quickly intervenes and desperately is trying to reason with Cheng. He is trying to talk some sense to the bully so he can stop Cheng from further beating up Dre. Harry is saying in Mandarin, "He just got here. He doesn't even know who you are" but the savage Cheng refuses to cooperate and says "Go away" to Harry. Like most other friends, Harry says what any other friend would say (i.e. "What the heck are you doing?", "This is bad", "Don't do this", etc). Mr. Han takes Dre to visit Taoist monasteries in order to watch some of the adepts training in the martial arts and meditating. The scenes were shot at Mt. Wudang, Hubei. There are three temples that take prominence in the movie: The Golden Palace, The Purple Cloud Palace, and the Tianyi Zhenqing Stone Palace, where Dre saw an adept hypnotizing a cobra. The 2.9m dragon stone carving is real. It protrudes from the cliff-side temple passage and originally held a bronze incense burner. Legend said that placing incense here at dawn was a show of courage and an act of faith. （小） "Xiao" in Mandarin literally means "small" or "little". In this case, like in the original where Mr Miyagi calls Daniel "Daniel-san", Mr. Han is calling Dre "Little Dre" because Dre is obviously younger than him. It's to show that Mr. Han, like Mr. Miyagi, is showing his student respect. Dre and Cheng face each other in the final match of the Tournament of Champions, Cheng having won his semifinal match, and Dre's opponent having been disqualified for an illegal blow that injured Dre's knee. Cheng scores the first point by knocking Dre off the platform. Dre scores his first point by knocking Cheng to the floor. His second point is earned when he scissor legs Cheng, again knocking him to the ground. When the match pauses for Cheng to be looked at, Master Li orders Cheng to break Dre's leg and reminds him of the Fighting Dragon motto: No Mercy. The match continues with Cheng scoring another point against Dre by kicking him in his already injured leg. At 2-2, the next to score a point wins the match. Despite the pain, Dre returns to the ring, assuming the crane stance and staring Cheng down in the same manner as he saw the woman on the mountain use with the cobra. When Cheng makes his move, Dre flips himself, catching a kick to Cheng's head. Dre scores a third point, winning the championship. In the final scene, the fighting Dragons line up and pay obeisance to Dre, while Master Li looks on incredulously and Mr Han smiles with pride. It's called "Dirty Harry (Schtung Chinese New Year Remix)" by Gorillaz. Nocturne no.20 in c# minor piano piece by Polish composer Frédéric Chopin. In this particular version, approximately 8 minutes are missing in comparison to the international version. But then again, there is a little bit exclusive footage in it as well. Apparently, this version is only for the Asian market or—to be more specific—for the Chinese market because all the alterations have one goal and one goal only: to make the fellow countrymen look better. Especially the fight and bullying scenes are either much shorter or they have been completely removed. The romance between Dre and Meiying has been toned by one cut in particular: they do not kiss. Furthermore, a few statements about China and its culture have either been changed or added to the audio track. There are a lot of similarities between this remake and the 1984 original, and so the film remains incredible faithful. The only differences are the setting, the age group, different character names and the addition of some Mandarin dialogue and text, along with most notably the kid learns Chinese martial arts other than karate (which is more popular in Japanese martial arts).
Aside from the obvious and most central plot points (Dre runs afoul of a bully, and eventually faces him at a tournament), the following similarities are seen:
- Mr. Han and Mr. Miyagi are both housing maintenance men and handymen with some broken English, and see Dre/Daniel trying to learn a martial art while trying to fix the main water systems.
- Dre lives in a single-parent household, raised by his mother, much like Daniel in the original. However, Dre's father is shown to have died due to unknown reasons. Daniel's father, Mr. LaRusso is never mentioned in the original so it is unclear weather he is dead or divorced.
- Cheng and his friends are not purely malicious at heart, but are taught to be by their own martial arts instructor who treats them very badly and rewards ruthlessness. Master Li even uses the tag line used by John Kreese in the original movie: "No Mercy."
- Mr. Han tries to catch flies with chopsticks, just like Mr. Miyagi in the original.
- Dre plays a prank on his bullies by throwing a bucket of dirty, slimy, oily rainwater water at them which causes them to chase him and beat him up and having Mr. Han come to his rescue. In the original, Daniel sprays water on one of the bullies in the bathroom stall during the school dance and is also chased and beaten up with Mr. Miyagi coming to the rescue.
- Mr. Han tries to reason, make peace and part on good terms with Master Li at his kung fu school despite their rivalry but is coldly rebuffed and rejected. Mr. Han then arranges for Dre to participate in the tournament, with Master Li making the same agreement made between John Kreese and Mr. Miyagi in the original movie: That Cheng and his fellow students will stop bullying Dre in the meanwhile.
- Mr. Han teaches Dre basics by having him do repetitive mundane house-hold related tasks. His "Jacket on, Jacket off" exercise is clearly inspired and by and based on Mr. Miyagi's famous "Wax on, Wax off" from the original movie.
- Both Mr. Han and Mr. Miyagi perform some kind of mysterious medicine healing ritual technique to a wounded, beaten up and bruised Dre and Daniel, respectively.
- Mr. Han hides a painful secret involving his family that eventually comes out while he is drunk, like Mr. Miyagi. They are both shown to be alone, with their family (wife and kids) dead.
- In the tournament semi-finals, Master Li forces his student to sacrifice his place in the tournament by inflicting a severe injury on Dre's leg, resulting in the student's disqualification. Mr. Han helps him recover enough to face Cheng in the final bout.
- During the final match, Master Li demands that Cheng focus on Dre's hurt leg, and Cheng is hesitant to do such a brutal, illegal and unethical move but reluctantly complies. Dre nonetheless wins using a fancy jumping move (much more flair and pizzazz than the "crane kick" used by Daniel in the original movie) and finally gains the two things he needed most by the end of the movie: (1) overcoming his fears, and (2) winning the respect of his nemesis.
- Similar alternate ending scenes, involving a battle between the two martial arts instructors, were removed from both the original and this movie. In the original, an alternate ending was scrapped, where John Kreese is roughing up Johnny Lawrence for losing to Daniel at the end of the tournament. Mr. Miyagi intervenes and badly humiliates Kreese in front of all his students (this scene was later added into the beginning of The Karate Kid Part II (1986) (1986)). At the end of this movie, an alternate ending where Master Li is infuriated at Cheng and his fellow students bowing respectfully to Mr. Han, and Mr. Han fights off Master Li and leaves him sprawled on the floor, was also taken out of the final theatrical release.
