About the Movie
In Columbia Pictures' The Karate Kid, 12-year-old Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) could've been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother's (Taraji P. Henson) latest career move has landed him in China. Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying - and the feeling is mutual - but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts "the karate kid" on the floor with ease. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre realizes that facing down the bullies will be the fight of his life.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's not as good as the 1984 version. I say that not just out of nostalgia, but because I think that that was a more satisfying drama.
Fresh: The Karate Kid 2010 is a thoughtful and professionally executed remake, retaining everything that really mattered about the original -- specifically the sincere relationship between the young protege and his mentor.
Fresh: There's life in this franchise yet.
Fresh: Smith might be the focus, but while he's got the charisma and the moves, it's Chan who makes it punch above its weight. Nice scenery too.
finally itunes has come out with this.from watching the trailer it does not look that bad.But i am a real fan of the original with Ralf Machio and Pat Morita.so i dont know if i will like it or not? and it looks like they made ALOT of changes so i am really not sure intill i see it. so i will at least give it three stars.***
