Trivia

Michael Treanor and Max Elliott Slade were like brothers. In fact, Michael Treanor quotes, "Once Max got me into a headlock while I was memorizing my lines. I got him pinned pretty quick. It was funny watching him trying to get out of my grip. He wouldn't give up 'til 10 minutes later. The kid needs to learn to give up!" See more »

This movie is good....a great kids movie
27 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK so i am getting annoyed by all these people bashing this movie....it was made for kids so obviously adults aren't going to love it...DUH!....i mean i watched this movie at least twice a month as a kid and now even though I'm 15 i'll still watch it if its on TV or if i feel like renting it....its a great way to remember what it was lyk being a a little kid....it gets kids imagination working i mean i would spend hours acting out scenes after i saw this movie...and this movie sparked such an interest in martial arts in me that i started taking lessons and now am a brown belt.....its just a fun movie the writer didn't intend it to be a classic but it is anyway to kids and grownups who are kids at heart....think b4 u speak....and don't take everything so seriously....I LOVE COLT!!!!!
