The Karate Kid (2010)

Surprisingly superior to the original, 2010's The Karate Kid retreads the old ground of coming of age of a cultural outsider, his initiation into the responsibilities of adulthood via the philosophy and discipline of martial arts, and his bonding with a much older father figure.

It goes on to add, in its favour, an emotionally realism as it explores the themes of cultural isolation, bullying, and friendship.
