dude you are freakin stupid no one can even understand what the heck you was trying to say. You sound like a dang wanna be from the hood and i doubt you even know what it means to be from the hood. I dont even know why you tried to say anything because you evidently dont even know what yourself is trying to say retard.

serious!! why even make this movie?? the old movie is much better! when directiors or whoever try to recreat a movie they just screw it up..taking away the true meaning of the movie!! serious just leave old movies alone. The old movies are meant to be left untouched and be treasured as they are.

I not saying this movie will be any good but as for any movie I will give it a chance. It seems like everyone is just calling this one crap months before it even comes out. True most remakes suck and this movie will most likely fallow suit but to call it now is just down right childish

This generation of kids needs a positive uplifting movie like we had back with the original. Mentorship is a lost art, many kids don't have a positive roll model these days.

YOU ARE HAVING A LAUGH ARNT YOU? THIS FILM FRANCHISE WAS OUT WHEN I WAS A KID AND GRANTED EPISODES 3 AND 4 WERE BAD, THE 1ST FILM WAS WATCHABLE AS WAS THE 2ND. FILMS YOU REMEMBER FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD STICK WITH YOU FOREVER AND I ENJOYED THE KARATE KID FOR REASONS UNBEKNOWN TO ME, BUT HEY NO ONES PERFECT. REMAKES ARE 90% CRAP ANYWAY BUT THERE ARE A FEW EXEPTIONS,, YOU CANT REMAKE A CHILDHOOD CLASSIC!
