A fatherless teenager faces his moment of truth in The Karate Kid. Daniel (Ralph Macchio) arrives in Los Angeles from the east coast and faces the difficult task of making new friends. However, he becomes the object of bullying by the Cobras, a menacing gang of karate students, when he strikes up a relationship with Ali (Elisabeth Shue), the Cobra leader's ex-girlfriend. Eager to fight back and impress his new girlfriend but afraid to confront the dangerous gang, Daniel asks his handyman Miyagi (Noriyuki 'Pat' Morita), whom he learns is a master of the martial arts, to teach him karate. Miyagi teaches Daniel that karate is a mastery over the self, mind, and body and that fighting is always the last answer to a problem. Under Miyagi's guidance, Daniel develops not only physical skills but also the faith and self-confidence to compete despite tremendous odds as he encounters the fight of his life in the exciting finale to this entertaining film.

It first starts off with a shaky kid who ages oddly weird. He is older than Thomas Ian Griffith as he is seen as Terry Silver. The shaky kid is Daniel LaRusso, who is nervous about moving to LA. I like how they added a little love sequence between him and Ali “With an I” and that is what sparked EX-Degenerate Johnny Lawrence to fight with him. I feel like Bobby Brown did not get enough credit as he deserves. Anyways, It is a great movie and I am not gonna spoil it, “so watch it, or your karate is a joke!”-Sean Kanan

This is a good movie, but skip the sequels. It’s the same thing all over again. But the next karate kid was pretty good in my opinion. And the reboot because it had a more modern kick.

Love this movie! It’s way better than Star Wars and it should be more popular than Star Wars and Harry Potter. Now This movie is the best 80s movie in my opinion knowing it in all this makes an awesome movie to great with its characters! Thank you John Avildsen for a awesome film!

They totally got rid of the best part at the end of the movie?! What is up iTunes. I had to go to youtube to see it. Bring the ending back. I assure 2 extra mins isn’t gonna matter.

With Daniel Macchio’s charm, Pat Morita’s quiet elegance and humor and William Zabka’s ultimate bully, John G. Avildsen’s The Karate Kid is an awesome follow-up to Rocky, and will do more to inspire generations of audiences over time. 9/10

This movie was good.if i had to pick a movie it would be The karate kid. It’s amazing Daniel moves to a new world were he can’t make friends but soon he learns karate from his only friend Miyagi. I recommend this movie.

Pat Morita god rest his eternal soul became iconic in this Karate 🥋 version of Rocky! If you’re not moved by this movie then you need to be waxed on and waxed off! 📴!

This is one of the best movies ever and I’m very glad that there’s two more movies after this and that there’s even a show contained after the movies. I recommend the movies and the show Cobra Kai if you love this series of movies.

I love it so much!!! And I've watched it enough to know the whole script. It's funny, cute, sad, and heart touching. I'm obsessed with Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) too. It's just the best movie ever!

From the struggle of adapting to new environments, to accepting the fundamental truth of our existence, the warm friendship cherished is rare and beautiful. The power of hope shines brightly in a young man's heart as he faces great challenges, yet learns the importance of discipline and endurance. But most of all, he learns that to achieve balance in his life, he must never settle for anything less than he is capable of.

I had fun filming this movie and being apart of karate kid. I love my role of Johnny Lawrence which is the character who bullies Daniel. Thanks to all my fans and I would defiantly recommend buying this movie. Thank you

The best movie of all time for me. Watched this like 5 times when it came out in theaters in the 80's. Excellent plot and cast is awesome. Moved to Hawaii so I can see where they filmed part 2. Run into the late Pat Morita at a gas station in Haleiwa. Want to meet Ralph M. Someday. Thanks

A sweet, compelling, and exciting story about a great friendship with humor, heart, and hurtful moments.

It was the ok movie

im jj 2011-10-08
Hey whoever doesn't know about this movie,go to blockbuster or a video store and get it. It won't be a waste of time like the new karate kid with Jaden Smith. Do not hang up coat and unhang coat. Wax on wax off.
