Karate Kid is about a young boy moves to a new place (China) where he feels isolated and is bullied by his peers. Through an unlikely relationship with an adult, the boy not only learns to protect himself through martial arts, but develops the much more important qualities of respect and the mastery of one's own mind and body.
My verdict: Very enjoyable remake of the 80's classic with Jackie playing the Mr Miyagi role. He is very good as the old master janitor who hides a tragic secret but helps train the boy to overcome his fears. Much better than expected if a little overlong.
