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.

HE'S THE ONLY MALE BLACK CHILD THAT I'VE HEARD OF THAT STARS IN A HEART FILLED POSITIVE MOVIE THAT ISNT ABOUT CRIME AND SEX...I GIVE THIS MOVIE 5 PLUS STARS!!!!!
What a retarded movie, and a spit in the face of martial artists all over the world. A disrespect to the founders of karate and to the original karate kid movies.Why would they name a move THE KARATE KID, when the kid is going to be taught kung fu? Its not the same!!!!! Karate originated in Japan and kung fu in China, two totally different styles. Jackie Chan should know this!!! Why would he let this happen? Oh yea, he just wants his money and the rest of the world to see how ignorant Americans are when it comes to martial atrs.
