Karate Kid

Twenty six years ago, Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita became an unlike pair of heroes in the original Karate Kid movie, the story of an underdog and an old man who join forces to beat the bullies and bad guys at their own game, namely martial arts. It wasn’t a great movie, but it was entertaining as hell and successful enough to spawn two sequels and make the phrase “Wax on. Wax off. “ a part of the cultural lexicon (at least in the 80s). The new Karate Kid, starring Jaden Smith as the kid and Jackie Chan as the old man, isn’t a great film either, but, like its source material, it sure is a lot of fun to watch and is almost certain to be the start of a new movie franchise. Whether “Coat on. Coat off.” ends up on T-shirts remains to be seen.
