    Does this not seem like it has the potential to be an entertaining if unabashed hip remake of Karate Kid?

    I think it's gonna be awesomely ridiculous.

    Yeah, Karate Kid wasn't about how cool of a guy he was. Quite the Opposite even.

    This looked better as The Karate Kid in 1984. Still it could be iteresting just to see what they changed and what is the same. Anyone else notace that they were using the WWE Raw theme?

    Guys, this is NOT a Karate Kid remake.

    That's not coming out until 2009. Will Smith's been attached to it.

    I didn't think it was actually a remake, just in spirit--but I thought you were joking about a real one.

    Until I Googled it.

    Wow, Hollywood. Just...wow.

    Wow. I didn't think there could be a worse looking movie than the Fast and the Furious bunch. This fits the bill though.

    Hollywood has learned the wrong lessons from Hong Kong film. Don't hire pretty boy, non-martial artists (pop singers in more recent Asian films) to be your action hero. Dudes are scraaaaaaaawny! This movie has train wreck written all over it.

    Looks Like Step Up...with fighting instead of dancing.

    For those of you who're wondering, this is not a good thing.
