The Karate Kid (2010)

everybody was
kung fu fighting. those cats
were fast as lightning.

bow-legged jackie
in need of a hug (or two)
ass kicks sparingly

jadan smith, munchkin
of doom, he will rain kung fu
hell-fire on all you

1980s chic
nostalgia-thick revival
happy on, sad off

grade: A

makes me want to see the film. everyone who's seen it has been raving about jaden.

Jaden was good in two other films I have seen him in, and it seems daddy's on screen charm has rubbed on.

What I'm curious is the title, Jackie Chan and karate? Why didn't they call it Kung fu Kid or something?

I'm still eager to watch this one though, since I loved the original when I was a kid.
