MIKA27 Posted July 1, 2010 Share Posted July 1, 2010 The Karate Kid 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. MIKA: I love Jackie Chan movies, the old chinese movies of he, Samo Hung and Yuen Baio were brilliant. Its a shame JC doesnt make more serious movies like Jet Lee does as he certainly has the art and is one of the all time greats. As for the movie, I haven't seen it, I dont know why they call it the Karate kid when its Kung Fu being taught!? The original movie was pretty good for what it was (I was much younger), Pat Morita was brilliant as Mr Miagi (Even the name has changed in this version).
