The Karate Kid (English)

Cast: Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith, Taraji P Henson, Wenwen Han

Direction: Harold Zwart

The kid Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) moves to Beijing with his mother (Taraji Henson) and the school bullies kept on beating him whenever they see him talking to Mei Ying. Dre realises its time to hit back and finds karate teacher Mr Han (Jackie Chan).

The film does have a lot to offer to young adults, but fails to rise to cult status. And that's only because the martial arts display is somewhat marginalised by the drama and relationship building which takes up a lot of screen time. The semi romance between Mei Ying and Dre and the prolonged training sequences involving Mr Han and Dre do seem to test the patience of our adrenalin-driven young viewers. Jackie Chan sheds his comic scene for a more serious show; Jaden is fluid motion and poetry and the locales are stunning.
