By: Jared Counts, June 10th, 2010 05:00 AMWhen his mother (Henson) is relocated to China for work, Dre (Smith) tries to fit in, only to be terrorized by bullies. After one particularly bad encounter, Dre is rescued by a local maintenance man (Chan) who teaches him Kung Fu. Yet another remake, but with enough uniqueness to make it worthwhile.
