12-year-old Dre Parker has moved to China, and finds himself like a fish out of water. He befriends a fellow classmate, Mei Ying, only to make a rival, Cheng, who starts to bully and attack Dre. Soon, Mr Han, the maintenance man of Dre's apartment, fends off Cheng and his friends when they are attacking Dre and signs Dre up to fight in the Kung Fu tournament in return for the bullies laying off of Dre. Dre realizes Mr. Han is much more than a maintenance man, when he's revealed as a master of Kung Fu and Dre soon learns that Kung Fu is about self defense and peace, instead of violence and bloodshed.Written by
The Qixi Festival that Dre attends with his mom and Mr. Han falls on the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar. Though the exact date in our modern calendar varies from year to year, it is usually sometime in August. However, a few scenes after this festival, Mr. Han says the date is June 8th. This is not possible unless 11 months had passed in those few scenes. See more »
Then what constitutes a 4 or a 3 or a 2 or a 2??
This stupid remake gets a 3/10 from me because I am in a good mood.
It is boring, has no feel for the story and the acting is simply atrocious.
I am sick of these stupid reboots (rip offs) now. They could have at least brought in a Japanese guy since karate is from Japan.
Anyway, if anything, this proves that Hollywood types cannot criticize Trump for his nepotism. Just look at this film!
