John & Becky’s Movie Review of The Karate Kid

Becky and I took the kids to see the new Karate Kid movie at the AMC theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at The Karate Kid describes the movie as follows:

“Twelve-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, and kung fu prodigy, Cheng. 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.”

The Review
The Karate Kid is a remake of the original Karate Kid movie starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith. This time it takes place in China and rather than Karate, the main character learns Kung Fu from a Kung Fu Master to defend himself. It’s very well done and an exciting film to watch.

The movie is pretty cool with some great action and a good storyline. Jaden is a really good actor and I guess he did all his own stunts in this movie. It was a very entertaining and we all really like it. Corban and his cousin Aidan were pretty funny when they were talking to each other and said, “Who wouldn’t be good at Kung Fu if Jackie Chan was your teacher?”, which was a really good point.
