Admit One 6/11

By Zach

The 80’s are taking over the multiplexes this weekend as the remakes of The Karate Kid and The A-Team battle it out.

The Karate Kid

Starring: Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith, Taraji P. Henson

Directed by: Harald Zwart

Plot: After his mom gets a job in China, Dre becomes the target of his new school’s bullies but gets help from Mr. Han, a secret master of kung fu.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 67%

Critic Consensus: “It may not be as powerful as the 1984 edition, but the 2010 Karate Kid delivers a surprisingly satisfying update on the original.”

The A-Team

Starring: Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson

Directed by: Joe Carnahan

Plot: Charged for a crime they didn’t commit, a special forces team escapes from a military stockade and goes on a mission to clear their names.

RT Freshness: 52%

Critic Consensus: “For better and for worse, Joe Carnahan’s big-screen version of The A-Team captures the superficial, noisy spirit of the TV series.”
