      Critics Consensus

      It may not be as powerful as the 1984 edition, but the 2010 Karate Kid delivers a surprisingly satisfying update on the original.

      Hargie M Even Jackie Chan's Mr. Han, with all his wisdom and skill, couldn't quite save the film from feeling like a watered-down version of the original.

      Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard The script is a lumbering, ponderous thing. Rated: 2/5 Aug 3, 2010 Full Review Robbie Collin News of the World On balance, this new version is probably a bit better than the original. Rated: 4/5 Aug 2, 2010 Full Review Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) How Harald Zwart, the director, justified bulking the film up to 140 minutes defies understanding. Rated: 2/5 Jul 30, 2010 Full Review Elisa Guimarães Collider The 2010 Karate Kid isn’t by any means as memorable and generation-defining as the original 1984 movie, but, in a world full of failed remakes, it sure is a pleasant surprise. Jan 29, 2024 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Inflated and unnecessary at nearly two-and-a-half hours, The Karate Kid offers nothing but indifference for those familiar with the original, and little emotional rewards for audiences new to the material. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) This Karate Kid does not surpass the original, but it is superior to those sequels.
