Critic Reviews of "The Next Karate Kid"Seattle TimesJune 14, 2013
The Next Karate Kid is harmless as children's entertainment, but for 104 very long minutes, there isn't a recognizable human being in sight.Los Angeles TimesMay 22, 2013
The overt message of any Karate Kid movie: Don't fight unless you absolutely have to. The implicit message: You'll always have to. Let the smitings begin!Philadelphia InquirerMay 22, 2013
While the message that a girl can defend herself against the boys threatening her is a good one, it's lost in a movie where the bullies look like Mussolini's bodyguards and where Julie waits for her boyfriend and Miyagi to come to her defense.Chicago TribuneMay 22, 2013
Only the reasonably-appealing performances of Morita and newcomer Swank keep it all from becoming even more of a loser.Entertainment WeeklySeptember 07, 2011
Not that girls will go see this or boys will care.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
The franchise is still kicking -- but not very high.Cinema CrazedAugust 07, 2014
An irrelevant foot note in the "Karate Kid" series that can be overlooked if only for being so vanilla.Radio TimesJune 14, 2013
A few pre-prom dance lessons are the only significant departure from the tried and tested chop-socky formula, although Michael Ironside is good value as Swank's sinister gym teacher.Baltimore SunJune 14, 2013
Amid its familiar banalities and formula twists, The Next Karate Kid comes up with one new idea for dealing with difficult American teen-agers: ship 'em off to a Buddhist monastery for two weeks!People MagazineJune 14, 2013
This desperate attempt to keep the franchise alive and kicking resorts to a backhanded kind of political correctness: introducing a surly teenage girl karate expert who goes around talking about "kicking butt."South Florida Sun-SentinelMay 22, 2013
Swank and Morita make a personable pair, enough so that we don't miss Macchio. The monks exude a benevolent presence in a film less trivial than it could have been.Common Sense MediaDecember 15, 2010
Violent sequel doesn't benefit from gender change.
