WTF. Why is the movie called Karate Kid, they say right in the trailer that he is teaching him Kung Fu. Fucking hell.

The Karate Kid name is just for franchise name recognition and marketability. They're playing it safe, in other words, even if it is stupid.

Otherwise, despite a new location, fighting style, kid, and Mr. Miayagi, this installment appears to follow the exact same formula as the previous entries. So if you mindlessly enjoyed those other movies, there's a chance you'll mindlessly enjoy this one too.

I love Krate Kid... Mr Miyagi MADE the movie, he made all 3 of them and I even liked the guy that played Daniel.

But this? Looks fucking terrible.

The sad thing is that this would have worked in the 80's when everyone called Martial Arts "Karate".  Thanks to 30 years of martial arts movies and fighting games, it's a serious blunder now.

Most people don't see any difference. Most people don't care at all for martial arts.

We'd already had over 10 years of martial arts movies back in the 80's. Additionally, lots of Americans are still ignorant to this day about the cultural differences between the different East Asian countries.

The world had Martial Arts movies, but in my opinion they didn't really hit it big in the US until 1973 with Enter the Dragon.  Anyway, this movie looks stupid.
