Jaden Smith The Karate Kid

They should do this for every action movie, not just the ones that involve Jackie Chan‘s ill-advised facial hair experiments and Jaden Smith’s desperate attempts to take over the family business. Sony Pictures has released a trailer for The Karate Kid that is dedicated to one thing and one thing alone: action. Whether it’s young Chinese kids doing kick-flipping Parkour or Jackie Chan hitting Jaden Smith with what appears to be a broom handle and a boxing glove (ouch), it’s all about action.

Early reports from trusted sources are saying that The Karate Kid is unexpectedly good. I’d believe it. At his best, Jackie Chan is always worth watching. And Jaden Smith is just another precarious kid actor. If combined with a solid story and a director with a firm grasp on shooting quality action scenes, this could be a movie worth talking about. Well, it’s already worth talking about. Worth seeing is another story. It is looking positive, though.

The Karate Kid is in theaters Friday, June 11.
