Synopsis

Remake of the 1984 film starring Ralph Macchio. Jaden Smith stars this time round as 12-year-old Dre Parker, who moves from his childhood home in Detroit to Beijing, China with his single mother Sherry (Taraji P. Henson). There he falls victim to the class bully at his new school, Cheng (Zhenwei Wang), after falling for his pretty classmate Mei Ying (Wenwen Han). Friendless and alienated in a strange new culture, Dre finds an unlikely ally in maintenance man and martial arts master Mr Han (Jackie Chan), who instructs Dre in the principles of Kung Fu, giving him the skills and confidence he needs to take on the bullies who are making his life a misery.
