  • When a 12-year-old from Detroit moves to China with his mother and incurs the wrath of the class bully at his new school, he makes an unlikely ally in the form of his aging maintenance man, a kung fu master who teaches him the secrets to self-defense. Upon arriving at his new school, Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) develops a powerful crush on pretty classmate Mei Ying. The feeling is mutual, although the cultural divide between Dre and Mei Ying makes a friendship unlikely, and romance impossible. When cruel classmate and kung fu prodigy Cheng learns of Dre's feelings for Mei Ying, he harasses and humiliates the young outsider in front of the entire school. With no one to turn to for help, Dre confides his fears in kindly maintenance man Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), a kung fu master who knows that serenity and maturity -- not punches and power -- are the true keys to mastering the martial arts. As Dre prepares to face down his intimidating tormentor, he begins to realize that the real fight is just beginning.

  • Critic Reviews
    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "THE KARATE KID is a kung fun kick of a film that hits more than it misses, with its fresh prince of Beijing in Jaden Smith..."
    Los Angeles Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The Chinese locations add visual interest, there are scenes of splendor in mountains and on the Great Wall, and the characters are once again engaging."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "THE KARATE KID is fun, and believable, on the most important level: It convinces us that Jaden Smith has what it takes to fight his way to the top." -- Grade: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "THE KARATE KID trusts you'll choose to come along on the journey, and you do. While we all know Smith will face off against his attackers at the big match, his story never feels calculated..."
