Product Description

Product Description

When Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) and his mother (Taraji P. Henson) move from Detroit to China, Dre feels lost in a world very different from what he knows. Bullied and beaten up by some fellow students in his school, Dre is rescued by his apartment building’s handyman, Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), a man who is mourning a devastating loss. Mr. Han takes pity on Dre and agrees to teach him kung fu to defend himself. Training together, teacher and student learn to trust each other, and ultimately form a friendship that heals them both.

From Amazon.co.uk

A remake of the 1984 film of the same name, The Karate Kid well exceeds expectations, delivering a powerful viewing experience filled with action-packed martial arts scenes, great footage of China and its many wonders, and an absorbing story of a preadolescent boy's struggle to find his own inner strength. The title Karate Kid is really a misnomer as it is the art of kung fu that is practiced in this remake, not karate, and other details, including the film's setting in China, also differ from the original film. What remains the same, and just as powerful, is the underlying story: a young boy moves to a new place where he feels isolated and is bullied by his peers. Through an unlikely relationship with an adult, the boy not only learns to protect himself through martial arts, but develops the much more important qualities of respect and the mastery of one's own mind and body. Relative newcomer Jaden Smith (son of actors and producers Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith) is excellent as the main character Dre Parker; Jackie Chan gives a restrained and highly effective performance as his mentor Mr. Han; and Zhenwei Wang is eerily believable as the bully Chen. This is an intense and often violent film that fully engulfs its viewers--be prepared to gasp and cheer out loud, and know that you may never look at the act of putting on and taking off a jacket in the same way again.--Tami Horiuchi

Ok, I'm going to have to admit it, I loved this movie. I approached this with no small degree of trepidation, since the original had a special place in my memory from my younger days, and I had the horrible feeling that a remake would just be more of the same but without Pat Morita and with a predictable dose of sweetener in it. But I was wrong - the story has been sufficiently given a new dimension by setting it in China, meaning the theme of the outsider being shunned is all the more relevant. Also Kung Fu is somehow a more appropriate martial art than Karate. The biggest and best surprise is in the casting - Jaden Smith is more than ever a mini-Will Smith with all the charisma that implies, but it is Jackie Chan that is quite a revelation, genuinely acting and emoting in a believable way, without his usual tongue in cheek approach. The end result is a genuine and quite affecting story with believable characters, which nods to the original in a satisfying way, without ever treading the same ground too obviously - no `wax on, wax off' here, but a novel alternative instead. It's a little grittier than the original, in a way that helps sell the danger in a more believable way, but leavens it with just enough heart to keep it in PG realm.
Yes it is not going to hold any big surprises for you, but if you're half human you're going to find it at least a little heart warming, and if it suffers a little from being somewhat of a Tourism Board approved advert for China at times, well it's beautiful enough scenery to forgive. It's arguably better than the original in many ways, better written, better fight choreography and some better ideas - but I wonder if even with all that going for it, it struggles to match the teacher - pupil chemistry of the original . Having said that, this is a real treat, far exceeded my expectations - recommended.

Well directed, good acting all round and a decent supporting cast. Smith and Chan have a fun chemistry that helps make the film enjoyable. We also have a lot more character building time spent in this film that gives it about 13 more minutes run time than the original, but those extra moments really pay off in a big way. we get more of Dre and his mom together. They don't just show up and then she gets thrown into a few scenes like in the original. She is an important part of Dre's life and it is shown. Cool training scenes and well choreographed martial arts fight scenes.There are some beautiful mountain and Great Wall of China scenes that are used in getting Dre into shape. The bullies are pitiless jerks, but are given good reasons to be that way. The love story, though utterly contrived and perfunctory, is still charming and fun.

Overall a good remake. Don't take it seriously otherwise you won't enjoy it. Its good fun film.

I think 'remake's' of really good films is possibly a difficult task for anyone, the 'original' with 'Ralph Macchio' and 'Nonyuke Pat' Monta' was indeed a very good film, and 'no question' a hard act to follow.
The film primarily follows the same format, the difference being the 'Karate' srudent 'Dre Parker' moves to china with his mother who's job takes her there.
Other than location, the story is pretty much the same, only this one does give us a good measure of 'stunning' scenery of the chinese landscape as an added bonus.
I like 'Jackie Chan' (Mr Han) he rarely makes a bad movie, 'Jaden Smith' ( Will's son ) has surely got a great future ahead of him in films.
Is this version as good as the original ? ---probably not in truth, however it's much better than some of the 'movie-critic's' write-ups i've read, if you watch the film without trying to compare it, i think like me you'll enjoy it.

Good update of the original from the 80 s about a young boys struggle to be accepted in another country and fighting to get respect from his classmates and friends meeting an unlikely ally they teach each other about life would recommend as good dvd to watch strong perfomances from Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith

My 7 year old loved the fight sequences.....but I think for his age group they were brutal. I am glad I watched it with my son to tell him it takes years of practice to get the moves/balance/flexibility...plus to tell him the 'healing' technique Jackie Chan carried out should not be attempted...ever! Just wanted to warn other parents who thought the film was merely harmless fun.

Like one of the reviewers above, I also was a child of the 80's, and saw all the Karate Kid films numerous times over the years. I was interested to see how Jaden Smith would step up to the challenge in comparison to Ralph Macchio who was the original Karate Kid. One word 'FANTASTIC!'. Even though Jaden Smith appears younger than Ralph Macchio as the Karate Kid, it worked just as well. I was really impressed with Jaden Smith's performance. Absolutely brilliant and I look forward to seeing him in future films. Jackie Chan was perfect as Mr Han. Although his English vocabulary is still not quite up to scratch...

They have updated the film more compared to the original, and I liked the way it was set in China (The birthplace of Kung Fu). It really made all the difference to the scenery and the story. Yes the film was longer than most, but it didn't matter to me at all. For me, they couldn't possibly have edited any more out. It kept me gripped from beginning to end.

The film is primarily an action film, but also contains comedy, suspense and drama. I would recommend this film for any age from about 7yrs +. Children younger than that may find it a bit violent and upsetting.

Besides Toy Story 3, make sure you see Karate Kid this summer - Not To Be Missed!
