The Karate Kid (2010)

IMDb link

Directed by: Harald Zwart
Starring:Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan, Taraji P. Henson, others.
Release date: June 17, 2010 (UAE)

Although a star-vehicle for Jaden Smith, The Karate Kid manages to capture enough heart to be a respectable film. As a classic underdog story, it echoes movies like Rocky, channeling it for a new audience via a charismatic young lead. Owing to its genre, there is not much unpredictable about the story, yet it works suitably to be a crowd-pleaser.
