why the hell dont you do this more often? you're damn good at it!
They do have a scene in the movie where they point out the difference between karate and kung-fu using the mom as a patsy, you know.
The biggest problem I had with the movie was the final fight scene. Specifically, the final move that KO'd the kid (or what not - can't remember the physical results from the brutal blow). You mention some of the moves being over the top - yeah, this one in particular. I didn't feel there was any build up for Jaden to be able to pull something like that off. :/
