I really enjoyed watching karate kid because it showed how he was easily losing his character flaws. Dre was a kid from the city that learned how to live in a completely different way than in Detroit. He learned something new as the days passed by and didn’t forget how to use them after he had learned them. I am a very fun and outgoing person to be around with, with many ways of making you laugh.
