After a week of train travel, I needed a break from motion, so I opted for a chilled out weekend at home doing something close to nothing. We did manage to catch The Karate Kid, which I enjoyed. I love Jackie Chan. He seems like a real down to earth guy who loves what he does. The story stayed true to the original, while adding it’s own particular flavor to the franchise. The karate, er I mean Kung-fu, was 100 times better than the original. I do agree with some of the critics. The movie could have been about a half hour shorter, basically the beginning was slow with all the saying goodbyes, the journeys in taxis, and the plane ride. But once the film got rolling proper, I was hooked. Oh yeah, awesome move at the end.
