Just watch, next they`ll remake the Goonies.

And then we`ll have to kill them.

But, the kid`s ten! Can`t it wait a few years until he matures? Or you could get a not-a-famous-actor`s-son kid to do it... give someone else a chance at the money/fame...

Set in China? OK... -skeptical-

I don`t think it`ll be a complete travesty, but it`ll still probably fail somewhat.

No! They can`t!

Especially since Pat Morita won`t be in it, cuz he`s dead!

That kid is 10 years old, it`s going to be a stupid little child version. The original was at least set in a high school not elementary.
This has major fail written all over it.

I think remaking movies is just wrong. Who cares if it`s old. If you can`t think of something original to make a movie about, then you probably shouldn`t making movies.

As long as Mr. Miyagi is in it, I don`t care.

Remaking is a classic is just killing it. That makes Hollywood producers murderers. They should go to jail or something.

Really? You all are so against it, I`m surprised.

I`d like to see another Karate Kid, but it`s just sad that Mr. Miyagi won`t be played by the same guy.

Oh no....Just, for the love of god. This better not be aired here. I can understand in Beijing and such where they have no Karate Kid but ****! That`s like remaking The Wizard of Oz starring Orlando Brown. Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap, this isn`t good lol.

(P.S. Remakes are trash, remakes of classics are atrocities [?])

I just heard about this on the radio. I think it`s sorta stupid. I`ve seen the original Karate Kid and I think it`s awesome how it is. It doesn`t need high tech movie equipment like we have now.

Remakes only work when there`s a point to the remake. Willy Wonka had a point. High tech crazy chocolate wonderland. This doesn`t have a point.

Agreed astrid, any movies or tv shows that try to remake a classic, is always bad with me no matter how good the remake is.

I`m sick of Hollywood remakes. Period.

I don`t care if it was a classic or not, just stop recycling the same old stuff... we know there are people out there writing good scripts, but no one wants to touch them because people keep paying money to go see things like, oh, The Karate Kid with Jaden Smith.

Furthermore, can the kid even act? Really? Is this going to be another Nancy Sinatra disaster (e.g. Dad-brilliant, child-horrible).

It`s a movie from 1984 for crying out loud. Disgrace what?? It was good at that time, but it wasn`t the Wizard of Oz for god`s sake!!! New era, new people, better technical stuff, etc. Whatever...
I can`t see getting bent out of shape over a remake of the Karate Kid!!!

couldnt they have made something else than a remacke.
like lets say the old karate kid moved to china and became corrupt and created a succesful ninja acadamy and now a new karate kid must step forward to kick his ass,

but that is just what i think the movie should be about instead off a remake where a black kid plays the roll of a white kid

I can`t be bothered with caring about a remake of a movie I`ve never seen...I`m more worried about the possible Rocky Horror remake by MTV!

It`s not as though they are getting rid of the originals with this remake. I`ve got my copy of Karate Kid, and so I don`t care what they do in terms of modern remakes.

Dear lord, I didn`t need the Wapanese guy back in the origional, now we have a... um... Blackanese? Yeah. movies these days suck. This kid isn`t even old enough for the role. I bought pursuit of happiness of some guy in chinatown for five bucks, and he`s like, what? 8? The guy who played Daniel in the first one was like 19, 20! (Even thought the character was a bit younger)

The original Karate Kid was good because it was so bad - this is just going to be bad.

Not as bad as the remake of Escape from New York, though.

Those movies are not good in the first place. The first one was two hours of boring before anything good happens. Who cares if Will Smith is going to ruin it? It died when Hillary Swank replaced Ralph Machio
