The Karate Kid-A Movie Review
So recently I had the pleasure of sitting down with the husband for a movie night. And I have to admit I wasn't to thrilled to watch the newest version of The Karate Kid. I mean I'm a child of the 80's. So the original Karate Kid is what I grew up on. So I had mixed emotions about watching the newest remake of it.
And to top it off, I'm not a big television watcher either, so to get me to sit still for the duration of a movie is a feat in itself. But reluctantly I did. And I have to admit that, overall, I liked it. But was a bit disappointed as well.
The makers of the newest Karate Kid could have made an entirely different story line. But they followed the old one almost to a "T" and to me that is a bit disappointing. Because that meant from the moment it started I knew what was going to happen minute by minute. That is the thing I hate most about remakes of movies. They weren't original in the making of it at all. Granted there were a few things that were different about it. But not much. Thus making the movie predicting and boring to me. I don't want to watch a movie and be able to predict and know what it going to happen frame by frame. And that is exactly what it was, a prediction frame by frame.
Thus this is how the movie went :
Boy moves - in the old one he moved across the country, the new one across the world
Boy meets friend on first day - nothing different there
Boy meets girl - the first one on a beach, this one in a park in China
Boy gets beat up over girl - nothing new there
Boy gets tormented by other boys
Boy meets person who will teach him Kung Fu - Different people but same story line
Boy trains for tournament
Boy wins tournament
All in all the exact same movie that was made in the 80's just different people and a different location.
Thus ending my movie review. Not impressed all in all but did enjoy it to an extent.
