Have you guys seen the new Karate Kid movie with Jaden Smith? Which is better, the original one or the new one?

I haven't seen the old one but I have seen the new one. I really liked the new one... not my typical type of movie but one that I really enjoyed. My parents both grew up on the old film, and they both enjoyed the new one too. My mom even said that she liked the new one even more than the old one.

I watched the new Karate Kid movie last night and I was really impressed. I thought the new one was better than the old one.

because the new one, the martial art that you see is all about KUNG FU but in the old one, the martial art that you see is all about KARATE whereas.... KUNG FU is more superior compare to KARATE

Mantis, I don't think the style of martial arts has anything to do with it. I've seen the old one since posting here, and I really think the new one is a superior movie. It's just got so much better filmmaking and storytelling to it. The cinematography is stunning, the locations are beautiful, and the actors are infinitely better at making their characters believable. Now I know lots of people who grew up with the old one have a nostalgic bias for it... it's a great movie. But I still think the new one is better, and not because it's kung fu instead of karate.

I've never seen the new movie but it would have to be really great to be better than the original.

The first one is by far the better film, largely for Pat Morita's Mr Miyagi character. Jackie Chan was the teacher in the remake and played the role devoid of charm or personality.
