    Chan is actually not Mr. Myagi at all. It is a different character all together.

    Also, Intotherain, it is ok to come to terms with the fact that you are indeed awful. The sooner the better.

    i still like you regardless of all the hurtful comments you so carelessly hurl my way.

    a heart is only so big, and this heart only has room for love.

    My opinion is everyone's opinion sucks. According to the first ammendment the law prohibts anybody from infringing on my freedom of speech.

    ^ we need new simpsons because this new crap sucks? Don't you mean we need old Simpsons writers (who mostly tend to write for Futurama) back on The Simpsons?

    Ironically, it's actually called "Kung Fu Kid"/"Kung Fu Dream" internationally.

    Just saw this. Pretty awesome. Should have been called The Kung Fu Kid, but they probably just reused the name so more people would be interested.

    I had a problem with some of the acting and the fact that you never see any blood, but the story was great.

    I saw this movie last night.
    And I could see parts where they were paying tribute to the 80's movie.
    But making it into a movie about Kung Fu, and if I am not mistaking the Kid is a Kid, not a 15-year-old or so.
    He looks like he is 10 or so. He is supposed to be 12.
    Way too young in my opinion.

    Then there is the fighting, the 80's movie was great because it was low budget, and it was a classic theme.
    This movie had some fighting scenes that looked completely unreal, or atleast improbable, with slow motion and jumps that would been The Matrix worthy.

    I have nothing against Jackie Chans acting in this movie, but still calling this Karate Kid makes it a weird movie to watch.
