Wrong! It’s “wax on, wax off”. This is my pledge to boycott watching ‘The Karate Kid (2010)‘. They are murdering a classic and I hope all of you who also love the Karate Kid franchise (Parts I and II only), will skip on this bastardisation. I saw the trailer on the TV the other day and wanted to laugh but I couldn’t even do that because it was not worth lauging at. It was just toooo ridiculous.
Why would you make a movie like this without any Karate content. Looks to me like it’s set in China and Junior Smith’s teacher is the Drunken Master of Kung Fu. Last time I checked, Kung Fu wasn’t Karate.
How can you succeed without the legendary Pat Morito? Without Ralph? Without the Cobra Kais? Without the great Miyagi insights? Without a skinny star actor with the coincidental surname of ‘Macchio’? Without a damn good theme song by Peter Cetera? How?
