It's an OK movie with some really spectacular nature shots, but the story is just too much of the same formula used in too many modern films - a boy who's picked on by a group of bullies has to enter a kung fu competition to prove his worth by standing up to his bullies, and I was disappointed by the lackluster acting from Jaden Smith (I know he's just a little kid, but still, with the kind of acting superstardom family he's from, I expected more). Jackie Chan is very good as a handyman/kung fu teacher who is broken down by a family tragedy, and has some fantastic moves throughout the movie, but the part about the fly was gross and totally unnecessarily and some of the scenes showed a lot of unnecessary violence. I wouldn't see it again.
