Story was'nt as inspiring as the original, sub-par acting on jayden smiths part, but it as fun to watch the kung fu choreography.
 
This movie was better than i thought it would be, Jackie Chan did a fine job of acting in this one, however you can predict how the movie will end.
 
Somewhat escapist, with its foreign setting and energizing Rocky-esque story. Not classic film, but Jaden Smith and his "love interest" are winsome, and Jackie Chan's character steals the show, so the movie is satisfying enough to watch.
 
Besides a misleading title, there aren't many flaws in the rebirth of Jackie Chan's career. It does some things better than the original, but it's not as memorable and powerful.
