It is basically the same story as the old, original Karate Kid, but little things are different and better. Better actors for one thing. Who can resist Will Smith's son, Jaden Smith? He looks so much like his daddy, it's fun to see him act. And Jackie Chan? You know it's going to be good with Jackie Chan! The only thing I didn't care for was Jaden plays a 13 year old and they have him kiss the young girl he falls in love with. A little too young for my taste.
Otherwise, it was a very good family movie!
