Critic Reviews of "The Karate Kid"SlateJuly 06, 2010
It's as sweet-natured a movie as you could expect about a 12-year-old learning to beat the crap out of his schoolmates.Christian Science MonitorJune 18, 2010
The latest "The Karate Kid" will probably work best for young audiences unaware of its predecessor - or of much of anything else for that matter.At the MoviesJune 14, 2010
It's not as good as the 1984 version. I say that not just out of nostalgia, but because I think that that was a more satisfying drama.San Francisco ChronicleJune 11, 2010
If the movie's overlong (and it is, by about 20 minutes), it's long for a reason: It gives Dre time to grow.Globe and MailJune 11, 2010
The script follows the predictable path from humiliation to humility to a climactic showdown, complete with a deciding slow-motion kick.MSN MoviesJune 11, 2010
This year's Kid lacks the light-hearted buoyancy of the original; it's heavier with loss and a particularly vicious cruelty.We Got This CoveredNovember 09, 2013
A cliched and predictable script mixed with the miscasting of Jaden Smith make The Karate Kid a pretty dull film. Stick with the original.Big HollywoodDecember 25, 2012
This remake is fun, lighthearted and enormously entertaining. A great family film.Examiner.comOctober 01, 2012
The screenplay gives Dre way too many dumb things to say while needlessly stretching out the entire story into a film that runs overly-long at 132 minutes.The Baltic TimesDecember 13, 2011
At two hours plus the film is much too long (do we really need that many montages of seeing Smith train?), but it just manages to provide enough watchable entertainment to keep less demanding members of the audience happy.IGN MoviesAugust 26, 2011
The story worked in 1984 and it works now.ComingSoon.netMarch 29, 2011
The Karate Kid is an excellent coming-of-age sports film filled with heart and humor that doesn't test your gag reflex. Even if you love the original the new version is a worthy follow up, both comfortable and fresh, and that isn't easy to do.
