Viewer Rating:jennith has rated The Karate Kid rating: 4 Star

This 80s remake stars Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith and although I was sceptical about remaking one of my favourite films I had to say I realy enjoyed this.The film takes place in China as Jaden and his mum move from Detroit to China to take up a new job.Jaden settles in well and has a girlfriend and everything is going well until her family forbid her from seeing him as they want her to be a child star.A friend of her family who like the girl beats him up and continues to do so until one day Jackie Chan the school Janitor saves him and decides he must teach him Karate so he can defeat his enemys.The film is chessy but it I enjoyed it Jackie Chan was great and the training and fight scences were great this is one I would recommend for the whole family.
