Turns out, you can learn a life times worth of Kung Fu in just a month or two and take on the youth of China. I thought I was going to like this more, it had all the elements of a cheesy Friday night beat’um up, but I think the Last Samurai burned me out on the whole “America comes along and kicks ass” movie trope. By the end of it I was wishing I had just watched a Jackie Chan movie instead. Chan shows some acting chops though, while Jaden Smith acts a fool to get the babe and become a Kung Fu master.
I’d recommend giving it a watch while falling asleep on the couch, you already know what happens, but it makes for a good Saturday afternoon movie.
