The Karate Kid


The Karate Kid
A remake of the 1984 classic, the storyline is virtually identical with a few twists. Our little hero relocates to China with mom, and soon makes a new friend (female) and enemy (male). After nearly getting beaten up, and realising that the little Karate he knows is no match for the bully's Kung Fu, he persuades the school janitor to teach him the Chinese fighting style. As per the original, things culminate in a knock-down tournament.

135 minutes.
Mature Accompaniment under 10 (Violence).

C. Fuchs quote iconSmith and Chan work wonderfully together, and their characters and the storyline still manage to engage and entertain (and I haven't heard such an enthusiastic response from kids watching a movie in a long time).

Tomatometer quote iconIt may not be as powerful as the 1984 edition, but the 2010 Karate Kid delivers a surprisingly satisfying update on the original.
