Rocky has been holding the title as the heavyweight champion until he is defeated by a brutal challenger, and now must regain his fighting spirit through a big rematch, trained by an unlikely ally: his old nemesis Apollo Creed.
After iron man Drago, a highly intimidating 6-foot-5, 261-pound Soviet athlete, literally destroys Apollo Creed in an exhibition match, Rocky comes to the heart of Russia for 15 pile-driving boxing rounds of revenge.
12-year-old Dre Parker could've 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 - and the feeling is mutual - but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts "the karate kid" on the floor with ease. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han, who is secretly a master of kung fu. 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. Written by
As noted on a featurette, Jackie Chan was the one who came up with the "jacket" routine as a means of teaching Dre Kung-Fu moves. See more »
The plane shown taking off to take the Parkers to China is different from the one shown landing in China. The planes shown have different registration numbers which are seen on the fuselages (specifically B-2460 and B-2443). However there is no explicit statement that the plane we are looking at is "their" plane, just that it's an Air China plane taking off / landing. See more »
by absolutely no means am I a fan of the first Karate Kid movie and before people attack me for seeing a remake for a film I hated I will tell you I was dragged to watch this and being told it was a good movie.... if anyone thought Jaden Smith was unbearable to watch in The Day The Earth Stood Still should watch this.
First off when you hear the words THE KARATE KID you'd expect Karate to be involved but all the time I heard the words "KUNG FU" by halfway during this movie I left. The bad guys in this movie are written to try to act absolutely evil in this when all I saw was a villain so weak I could call the villains out of superhero cartoons better.
(you have to watch original to get this paragraph) For the tasks in the first one that made Daniel know Karate at least that had variety but in this it's all this crap about picking up a jacket and dropping it then wearing it just that This may make me sound like a fan of the original but I will tell you now I also gave that a 1 but I will choose that over this piece of ####.
Now I may think this may get a lot of people clicking "yes" to my review even though I only watched half of it I will tell anyone who clicks "no" to my review because I didn't watch all of it "I will not watch all of it what I saw was enough and I won't watch more"
Edit: Why did 2 people click "No" to my review... I'M AGREEING WITH THE OTHER PEOPLE THAT HATE THIS CRAP
