The Karate Kid

3 1/2 stars

A Challenge He Never Imagined. A Teacher He Never Expected.

12-year-old Dre Parker could've been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother's 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, 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. (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Review:
Well, I didn't want to see this movie in the first place but it ended up being better than I had thought it would. Jaden Smith is a cute kid and if you didn't know it is Will Smith's son. Jackie Chan is awesome as always. I love how he does all his own stunts. I find that pretty awesome. Yes, this movie was kind of childish in some parts or it just seemed for a younger age, but it was cute, and it had a good story to it, and it teaches kids good things.

What do you think?

This movie turned out to be better than I thought it would be. It wasn't amazing or anything but it was ok. I thought it was going to be cheesy but it really wasn't that bad. In general I liked it and I think your review is pretty good.
