Storyline

Jimmy "The Lightning Bolt" Lee is a former mixed martial arts champion who returns home and is asked by his father figure, Charlie, to teach a group of inner city kids martial arts in preparation for a tournament. The reigning junior national champions, the Beverly Hills Scorpions, are coached by the very cocky and arrogant Ted Barret, who is a former rival of Jimmy's. With help from local food truck vendor Big Mama, Jimmy's team becomes the Underdogs. As the Underdogs prepare for the big tournament, both the kids and Jimmy learn some lessons from each other that will make their bond stronger as they prepare for a showdown with the Scorpions.

I wouldn't recommend it to any sane human being ..
7 July 2015 | by (Boston, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

Gosh the movie is so damn slow for a karate supposedly action movie .. and the production and the montage is so old and cranky like you can notice the switching between scenes is flipping like an MS Power Point slides or maybe a movie maker ,, even the soundtracks are unbalanced and so scattered all over the place :P The story is predictable and not genuine and the plot is not really new and the script is so loose !! As for the Acting it is so freaking bad i believe that was the how it was when the first human invented acting !! the visuals and the cinematography are another bad story that is so noticeable especially in the final fights .. it is a 2015 movie on the style of bad even older version of the original karate kid ... Even the one with Jaden Smith is in so many levels much better than this.

As for the cast ,, as i said earlier,, they're so bad at acting or maybe it was a montage problem !! if Phillip Rhee is trying to make a Jackie Chan experience out of this well i think he failed , and as for the kids my goodness i hope what i saw is just their "Learning Mode" .

Overall,, it wouldn't say it was a mistake that i watched the movie , because i got the chance to see what the other underworld of movie industry is trying to do ,, so i wouldn't recommend it to anyone. and the 2/10 was for trying to do a movie of sort !!
