Review of The Karate Kid remake

Categories:

The Karate Kid
Director: Harald Zwart
With: Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan, Taraji P. Henson, Wenwen Han, Zhenwei Wang

The original Karate Kid was a pretty good movie with a nice turn by Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi, and an earnest and believable job by Ralph Macchio in the title role.  This remake is bigger, more violent and both better and worse than the original.
Dre (Smith) and his mother Sherry (Henson) leave Detroit after the death of his father so mom can get a better job.  In Beijing.  We never know what exactly she does, but she can do it in China quicker than Detroit.
This leads to another anomaly: the martial art here is kung fu, not karate.  But, hey.
