FW MOVIE PICK: THE NEXT KARATE KID

next-karate-kid-hilary-swank-pat-morita-miyagi

Well that’s the end of this series and needless to say, it didn’t go off with a bang! Mr. Miyagi is back and he takes a new pupil under his wing; a troubled adolescent girl. Starring Pat Morita and Hilary Swank. Overall I did enjoy Hilary Swank in her big breakout role as well as Pat Morita as our favorite mentor; the film itself feels like it didn’t need to exist and feels very 90’s. Having a gender-reversed Karate Kid is an interesting idea on paper; but hardly exciting. And going from Buddhist monastery and High School Proms are hardly noteworthy changes. An unworthy recommendation for the fans!
