The Karate Kid

Drama . Adventure . Action . Family

12-year-old Dre Parker could have 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 but the cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make him an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han, who is a kung fu master. 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.

More Info:
  • Steve Persall

    What's fun is how the new Karate Kid embraces and vastly improves the cliches, keeping the plot cleverly updated for a generation that never heard of Ralph Macchio.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    If you've seen “The Karate Kid” (1984), the memories will come back during this 2010 remake. That's a compliment.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Given the dreck we’ve seen this summer, it’s nice to be reminded of the virtues of clean storytelling and cultural curiosity.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Jaden Smith is destined to be a star by the force of will (and wallets) of parents Will and Jada Smith, both producers on The Karate Kid. But he's also got the raw material.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Jaden may have to carry the burden of family celebrity, even as he carries his new film. Expertly.

    Time Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    The kung fu sequences, although enjoyable, probably would not make the Jackie Chan Top 10. However, Chan's acting is his most affecting since the 1993 policer "Crime Story."

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    A fine, fun remake of a movie that updates, transplants and reimagines the original without sacrificing its heart or goofy charm.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Solidly entertaining.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The new Karate Kid brings fresh life and perspective to the classic tale of perseverance and cross-generational friendship, thanks to Harald Zwart's sensitive direction and two exceptionally appealing stars.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The one thing that should have been changed but hasn’t is the title, which makes no sense at all in a movie about kung fu.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The casting is perfect, and the resetting of the story to China allows for a satisfyingly cinematic retelling.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The kids in the movie, from musicians to marital artists, are unusually skillful, and Smith seems assured of more starring roles. By the end of The Karate Kid, we can't help cheering, even when we know we've been sucker-punched.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    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.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Ultimately, it's a formulaic sports movie for kids that hits the expected dramatic beats.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michelle Orange

    If only the director had learned Mr. Han’s most important lesson: Being still and doing nothing are two very different things.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    It has heart and a good kick.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    It's a sign of that pic's dramatic durability that "Kid" manages to be as absorbing as it is, despite its nearly 2½-hour running time.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    A winning update of a classic piece of Eighties' filmmaking, and that in itself is something of a coup.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The Karate Kid will probably work best for young audiences unaware of its predecessor – or of much of anything else for that matter.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Jackie Chan co-stars in Morita's old role of the humble maintenance man who coaches the Bullied One. The older Chan gets, the simpler and truer he becomes as a performer.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The problem with the film is that that story, hackneyed when it first made it to the screen in 1984, has grown only more tired over the past 26 years.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • James White

    Smith might be the focus, but while he’s got the charisma and the moves, it’s Chan who makes it punch above its weight. Nice scenery too.

    Empire Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Does the movie have anything new to say, anything different from John G. Avildsen's 1984 original, with Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita? Not particularly.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    A kung fu kick of a film that hits more than it misses.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    If I had a child near Dre's age, I'd drag him or her out of "Marmaduke" and into The Karate Kid--but not before requiring an at-home screening of the still unsurpassed original.

    Slate Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    That the film works as well as it does--as an attractive, rousing time-passer for children--speaks more to the endurance of a good formula than its revitalization.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    It's a measure of the times that the new version of The Karate Kid manages to be longer and bigger-budgeted than the original while having lesser impact.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Despite the local color, the movie isn't especially globalized. The major characters all speak English, and the action sequences throb to the music of Lady Gaga, the Roots and Gorillaz.

    NPR Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Short review of three little words: Way. Too. Long.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Smith’s charisma isn’t always an asset to the movie though. Unlike the unknown Macchio in the original Kid, there’s nothing vulnerable about Smith except for his diminutive size, which is its own problem.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    At two hours and 15 minutes, the new Karate Kid takes an absurd amount of time to get to that “big match.”

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Mary Elizabeth Williams

    At times, the movie feels less like a coming-of-age tale and more like an extended promo for the Chinese tourism bureau. Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    There is the impression, deadly to the sense of fun, that the talent here actually thought they were remaking a classic.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Is this Karate Kid as good as the original? No, although it is better than the sequels. But why bother with nostalgia? It’s probably good enough.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    You could also say it's like they're likable tourists on a quest to plunder an endearing movie that didn't need this mediocre remake.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    This is a smart departure for Chan, who's been wasting his talent in mediocre comedies; the other actors don't fare as well. The plot takes forever to get rolling, and the movie is hamstrung by numerous tourism sequences.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    A popcorn picture that thinks it’s “The Last Emperor,” The Karate Kid is about as likely to grab your youngster’s attention as any other propaganda film made by the Chinese government.
