When the struggling Mid-City Community Center’s karate team loses their instructor a week before the big tournament, former MMA champ Jimmy “The Lightning Bolt” (Rhee) returns to his old neighborhood and reluctantly agrees to train the misfit bunch. Despite the struggles they face, the washed-up fighter and group of urban underdogs bravely take on the undefeated Beverly Hills Junior National Karate Team in the ultimate karate showdown at Nationals, and learn confidence, courage and honor along the way.
A story about a gang of unlikely kids, Underdog Kids is a powerful movie about turning negatives into positives. Just looking at the kids of the Mid-City Community Center, you'd assume they are weaklings who should be doing other things besides wanting to be in the sport of karate. Jimmy “The Lightning Bolt” walks on scene and shows the kids that anything is possible. Jimmy has a few things to learn himself. I particularly liked his dry, yet witty, sense of humor. You'll definitely be rooting for the underdogs the entire time!
Some scenes are campy and there is some very mild violence but ultimately this is a movie about perseverance, discipline and honor. It's a great family film that reprises that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover and anything is possible if you put your heart and soul into it.
