Dre’s move to China could turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to him…or the worst. And it’s not looking good when he gets beaten up by the local Kung-Fu bully on his first afternoon.
Cheng just won’t leave Dre alone. Especially if Dre goes anywhere near Mei Ying, the only person who’s even been friendly to him.
Then Mr. Han, the maintenance man, turns up. And as Dre puts it, everybody in China knows Kung-Fu. Mr. Han offers to help Dre stop the bullying…and soon Dre’s scheduled to fight in a huge tournament.
Except, the maintenance man isn’t teaching Dre real kung-fu. He’s making Dre hang up his jacket.
In My Opinion…
Movie Classification: PG
My Rating: 4 Stars
This is a great movie. It has everything — drama, action, humour and the rest. You can sympathize with Dre while still laughing.
Since I’ve been to China, I killed myself laughing at how realistic everything was. The scorpions on a stick. The walking machines in the park. The crazy traffic. People everywhere. And the famous icons — like the Great Wall of China. But, even if you haven’t been to China, you will still love this movie.
There were a few bad words — nothing too horrifying, though. And when it ended, it left you wondering if Mei Ying had been picked at the audition (an an annoying loose end). Apart from that I can’t really find a lot of faults. You don’t even have to be a huge fan of martial arts to enjoy this movie.
Definitely a good movie to watch.
