He's definitely got something...

He's got looks, he's got charm, he's got charisma. He dances like a dream, sings like a pro and fights like a master. He is five times the actor his father can ever hope to be - and that too before he's even said a word.

All this and he's only 12 years old. Jaden Smith is a star.

I just watched Karate Kid (2010). It's got a disjointed storyline, a stilted script and a bit of requisite cheese. But between Jackie Chan's star power and Jaden Smith's unbelievable screen presence, it's a half-decent film. And for anyone who grew up in the 80s and loved the original, it's definitely worth a watch. So what if the title itself is referring to a completely different martial art - the film holds the same essence and is vastly entertaining.

Worth the time and effort.
