    Because the average American is unaware of that distinction meaning there's no point in trying to be accurate.

    The 2010 version is based in China where Kung Fu originated. Karate is from Japan.

    Just for your information, if you are not aware, Karate is actually the "modified version" of Chinese martial art, which is orginiated from China. Everyone know, Japan used to learn from other, modify and improve to make the thing their, such as their Auto industries which was learned and modified from the Europe.

    Regarding this question, who care what is the name of the movie? Most movies do have senseless name too.

    I heard that the reason was actually talked about within the movie, but I haven't seen the movie yet, so I can't say for certain.

    But, yeah, it's Wushu...not Karate at all.
