The classic still translates today into an awesome movie. The coming of age movie has a perfect amount of romance, life-lessons, and revenge. Macchio was a great choice to play Daniel, the good kid in a new place trying to adapt to the different lifestyle than he's used to. The fight scenes are believable and don't get too cheesy, except of course the swan kick. This is a must see movie for all ages.

Classic 80s teen version of Rocky that's wall to wall cliches, but all the more enjoyable for it.

Not only is this a fantastic sports film, but it's a very believable coming of age story, told with a touch of 80's movie nostalgia. Pat Morita is unequaled in his role as the wise and pacific Mr. Miyagi. Too many iconic scenes and lines to count.

It is so rewarding when an 80s movie actually holds up to how you felt about it as a kid. The fatherly mentor relationship with Mr. Miyagi is surprisingly profound and "You're the Best" is quite possibly one of the best songs ever used in a movie

Gelassenheit

Jahrelang wollte ich den Film nicht sehen. Ich mag keine Lehrer-Schüler Filme und schon gar kein Karate. Aber: Ich lag komplett daneben. The Karate Kid ist eine der schönsten Überraschungen aus den 80ern! Eine aufregende, herzerwärmende Geschichte mit einer der interessantesten Freundschaften, die das Kino zu bieten hat! Karate Kid, das ist Daniel (Ralph Macchio) aus New Jersey, der mit seiner Mutter nach Los Angeles zieht. Ein alter japanischer Mann namens Miyagi (Pat Morita) arbeitet als Hausmeister in ihrer Apartment-Anlage. In dem Moment, da sich Daniel für die Ex-Freundin des Anführers einer Schläger-Gang zu interessieren beginnt, bekommt er alle paar Momente eins auf den Kopf. Daniel versucht sich zu wehren, doch sein Gegner trägt den schwarzen Gürtel in Karate. Hier kommt Mr. Miyag...
