Surprisingly he gains help from the maintenance man, Han (Chan), in his path to overcoming his difficult adjustment to his surroundings.
This The Karate Kid movie review contains possible spoilers. You’ve been warned.
** Warning, Possible Spoilers!!!! **
- Jaden Smith gave a good performance as the Karate “Kung-Fu” kid. His growth within the movie made you believe he could be a future action star. One of the best messages of this movie came when he gave the lines “Because I’m still scared. And no matter what happens, tonight, when I leave, I don’t want to be scared anymore.”(Quote off of IMDB.com)
- Taraji P. Henson played a concerned mother. Each time she told Smith’s character to pick up his jacket I could understand her frustration. Everything about her portrayal as a single mother was top notch. You could see her concern when she found out Smith’s character had a black eye.
- Jackie Chan did an amazing job. He played as a great mentor and delivered perfectly with his comic relief.
The fighting scenes in the tournament gave off a shaky camera action feel to it. It looked weird each time it happened.
