When it first got announced that The Karate Kid would be coming to Netflix for the October 2019 releases, we weren’t sure whether it’d be the original movie or the 2010 reboot. Today, we now know that the 2010 movie was what was on the horizon.

The movie featuring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith features a similar tale about a young boy who is trained by Jackie Chan to become The Karate Kid after he is moved to China by his mother.

Reviews for this one are generally mixed and seems to mostly rely on your ability to like or dislike Jaden Smith.
