Review: The Karate Kid Remake

A must see. Grab your little hard headed boys and take them to see the remake of “Karate Kid” starring the Will Smith offspring, Jaden Smith.  They might actually learn something besides the new kung fu move or how to break a leg.  Ever since his debut in Pursuit of Happiness I have found him to be one of the very few child actors that stand out in Hollywood.  Through determination, wit, and charisma, Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) works together with the maintenance man (Jackie Chan) to overcome his fear of getting beat up by the school bullies in China.  His mother’s job transfers them to China and he has to learn to adapt and adjust to his new surroundings.  The whole time he discovers friendships and learns a culture that practices discipline in everyday life.  Not to spoil it for you but Dre Parker learns a lesson that could be applied to the whole family; if you fall down it is your choice to get back up.
