Unexpectedly, this turned out to be a great movie. Every other people who had watched the movie said so!
I've never watched the older version, or maybe I did but I totally forgot anything about the story, so I was watching this movie 'freshly'.
I guess the storyline is just very normal. But the chemistry between Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan is just amazing, and that makes the difference. I love the action, very detail believable. I love the fact that they put in Chinese culture and teaching in it, I think we Chinese have to be proud of that kind of teaching. I love the fact that not only the student (as in the kid) has problem, but the sifu himself has his own problem too and they just help each other. I cannot remember what else can I talk about the movie. But other than it's a bit too long and boring at the beginning, and the too-young-to-be-true love story, the movie overall is good and I felt so good after watching it! And I love to feel good after watching a good movie!
Will Smith's son Jaden definitely did a great job. Somehow, I think this boy has something in acting. I hope his acting career will go on well, unlike some other kid stars before this. Jackie Chan's not too bad too in this movie, I think it's probably one of his better performances in a movie. And Taraji P. Henson! Love her! Just as natural as she is!
Nice one! I'll give it a 4 out of 5!
