Jackie Chan stars as the martial arts master who mentors young Jaden Smith in his battle against a gang of kung fu bullies.

Twelve-year-old Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) is just a normal kid from Detroit, but then his mother (Taraji P. Henson) makes a career move that takes them both to China. Dre likes his classmate Mei Ying (Wenwen Han) but cultural differences make problems for their friendship. Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. Dre knows some karate, but Cheng's kung fu skills quickly put 'the karate kid' on the floor. Dre feels alone in this strange land, but then he meets kindly maintenance man Mr Han (Jackie Chan), who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han becomes Dre's mentor, he teaches the young karate kid that kung fu is not just about fighting, but about self-control and adaptability. But will Dre ever learn enough to defeat the bullies?
