5.0 out of 5 stars The Karate Kid (2010) Soundtrack Review, August 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Karate Kid (Music from the Motion Picture) (Audio CD)
Now, I do understand that several reviewers have knocked this CD around simply because it doesn't have Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never," and although I was slightly disappointed at that, I'm not gonna ding this soundtrack for that--because I actually went in and downloaded the song itself. However, I also understand that there are a ton of people out there who love film scores, and I'm one of those people. I remember seeing "The Karate Kid (2010)" in the theaters, and upon hearing this score, I just about cried. People can bash remakes all they want to, but this remake's got a soul of its own thanks to Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith, and this excellent score. While Bill Conti's original "Karate Kid '84" score is good in its own right, Horner's cues blow Conti right out of the water with excellent uses of Chinese and other Asian instruments. While one cue perfectly describes the feeling of leaving your hometown behind, one cue really moves you to train or to push yourself HARDER in order to succeed in fulfilling your dream.

Film scores (and movies in general) rarely make me cry, but this one did.
