The Karate Kid (2010)

The Karate Kid (2010) Release Date: June 11, 2010

“The Karate Kid” – “The Karate Kid 2010,” from Sony Pictures, is a remake, of sorts, of the 1984 movie “The Karate Kid,” starring Ralph Macchio. In the 2010 version of the movie “The Karate Kid,” 12-year-old Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) could’ve been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother’s (Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson, “The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button”) 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.
