    Jackie Chan, as I said I few times in the review, is pretty much the only reason to see the film.

    If you were moved by something in the movie, than it did its job for you. I was bored, then derisive, then disturbed while watching it, so it obviously doesn't work for me. But my primary concern about this piece was the total and utter lack of consequence to the violence in a movie aimed almost 100% at young children and pretending to be "real".

    What book were you reading that got you distracted from this modern day classic?

    Not for nothing, but I did enjoy Jackie Chan more than I have in a long time. I do resent having Jaden Smith shoved into my face. I look forward to his awkward puberty, drug addled 20's and then his subsequent rebirth as an indie cinema heavy hitter.

    I personally liked the movie and surprisingly Jaden Smith didn't annoy me, as a matter of fact I liked his performance. Maybe it has to do with the fact I've seen so many movies with many annoying performances from child stars that his comes across as decent. Still Jackie Chan stills the show as usual.

    I just watched this last night. There are no surprises for those that have seen the original but I thought it was a good movie nonethelesss. I thought it might be interesting to challenge the bullies to unleash their Mayagi wisdom and see if they could come up with a mundane task that would teach a martial art technique. I'll have my student pick up and dump bags of manure untill he learns to do a proper two leg takedown. (I realize that makes as much sense as a football bat but hey, its a movie)
