In 2010 Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith starred in the remake of the 1984 original. Smith was not cut out for the role of Dre Parker, compared to Ralph Macchio, plus they're practicing Kung Fu in China in the remake, as opposed to karate, which is a Japanese art. Although the second showed some beautiful scenery, and Chan has one decent fighting scene, most viewers were dissapointed in round two of "The Karate Kid." Flick pick: the original.
