The Karate Kid (2010)


After moving to China for his mother’s work, 10-year-old Dre Parker develops a crush on a young girl but also gets beaten up by school bullies. When the apartment maintenance man, Mr. Han, encourages Dre to fight peacefully things get more difficult. Now Mr. Han has to teach Dre Kung Fu in order to bring closure to himself. Though I was skeptical about this remake, I was pleasantly happy by it. It was very inspirational, deviated away from the original but still kept its tone and Jackie Chan was the perfect mentor. You can tell that he truly lost something and I think he was the scene-stealer. All this amounts to is a damn fine remake.
