‘The Karate Kid (2010)’Movie Review: Newest ‘Kid’ is the ‘best around’

The lyrics of once little-known artist Joe Esposito’s 1980s mega-hit on “The Karate Kid” soundtrack, “You’re The Best,” echo throughout the fourth addition to the much-beloved series “The Karate Kid,” in theaters since June 11.

Like any classic remake, the plot of “The Karate Kid (2010)” is edited only slightly from the story of the original 1984 film, but is set in China, which adds just enough of a new twist to an old favorite to make it desirable to see.
