Could be better
3 January 2014 | by kadiotatsuryuSee all my reviews

Kickin it it my opinion seems to be Disney's attempt to attract fans interested in action. Kickin it has a lot of potential. The fights scenes can be pretty cool at times, but other times they're just fake. The show has an incorrect balance of karate and comedy. Most of the actors are bad actors and like all Disney Sitcom type shows, tells a bunch of lame jokes.

My main issue with the show is Jack. Jack is the character that makes me hate the show the most. And hatred for him is heightened further by the fact that he's probably like the main character. He's a very skilled martial-artist and has a near perfect moral compass. Why would you make your frieken main character a perfect person. Jack is the most cleeshay character in the series. His skills in karate put him in a league to high for any of his peers, even the blonde. If the show wanted to make Jack like this at the end of the series, okay. But he has been like this for day one. The episodes feature episodes in which Jack is shown to stick to his promises and do all the kind and Noble things...well, most times. At the same time, his friends make the wrong decisions and act more like teenagers, unlike Jack. Jack never loses and always seems to end up right in the end. Even when against his masters. I can at least appreciate the episode when one of his friends say "And let the Almighty Jack win yet another thing? Now way!" He said something like that.

Anyone here that knows story or is a good critic knows this simple fact: PERFECT PEOPLE, MAKE HORRIBLE CHARACTERS! WHY?! BECAUSE IT LEAVES NO SPACE FOR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!!! WHICH IS IMPORTANT IN FICTION AND STORIES. We already know Jack's by far the best! Which is bad since the story's still young. The only time we ever came close to seeing a flaw in Jack is how he badly takes defeat, and even that was proved wrong when he was right in the end of it.

Milton, seriously? Even Jaden Smith had to train for Karate Kid. I may not have gotten his name right, so just t be clear, I'm referring to the tall, blondish nerd. If I ever got my @$$ kicked by him, I'd never show my face in public again. Kickin' It has it's fair share of fake judo flips, but whatever.

This show has the potential to be a show even Disney haters can appreciate but has a messy story, lame jokes and cheesy moments from Jack. Overall, I give it a 6/10, at a stretch. 6 is poor by the way.
