Purple Reels gives Karate Kid [5] ***** Stars!

The old karate kid was directed by John G. Avildsen and written by Robert Mark Kamen. Starring Ralph Macchio who is looking quite handsome these days and Pat Morita. The Karate Kid was a definite classic in my family and definitely reigns among the top ten greatest movies of all time. Pat Morita was nominated in 1985 for an Oscar and Golden Globe for best supporting actor. The movie won "The Young Artist Award" for "Best Family Motion Picture - Drama." Elisabeth Shue won "Best Young Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture Musical, Comedy, Adventure, or Drama." William Zabka was nominated for "Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture Musical, Comedy, Adventure or Drama." So to top a movie that was so successful already was somewhat of a challenge. However even after changing some aspects of the movie, the modern version seems to appeal to a wide range of audiences. The kids are not necessarily the ones to please. There are some big kids out there who are very familiar with the 1984 classic. So those are the people who would undoubtedly be most critical about the remake.


Jaden Smith has grown a lot as an actor and is fortunate to be in a family of creative people who are able to guide and protect his best interest. Taraji P. Henson was a great pick right now as well. She is at the peak of her career and this was a major role for her. It was nice to see them working together. I also think Jackie Chan was a good casting choice.

The Karate Kid is about strength and courage that was able to bridge the gap between generations. It also transcended ethnic cultures which was a great treat. In a modern world such as ours that was something to be proud of. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith were among the main producers of the movie. It is such a great thing to see a family like theirs pushing eachother to become greater. Their family is truly gifted and I'm glad they're giving their children the chance to shine...! We need more families like that in this world. Purple Reels gives The Karate Kid 5 ***** STARS!

As always remember to be "REEL" and stay on the MOVE!
