Daniel and his mother move from New Jersey to California. She has a wonderful new job, but Daniel quickly discovers that a dark haired Italian boy with a Jersey accent doesn't fit into the blond surfer crowd. Daniel manages to talk his way out of some fights, but he is finally cornered by several who belong to the same karate school. As Daniel is passing out from the beating he sees Miyagi, the elderly gardener leaps into the fray and save him by outfighting half a dozen teenagers. Miyagi and Daniel soon find out the real motivator behind the boys' violent attitude in the form of their karate teacher. Miyagi promises to teach Daniel karate and arranges a fight at the all-valley tournament some months off. When his training begins, Daniel doesn't understand what he is being shown. Miyagi seems more interested in having Daniel paint fences and wax cars than teaching him Karate.

I loved the ending of the movie and loved the dance scene, but the way it was played out made me angry and sad. It was completely out of place. I never saw the "that's enough" scene when they finally finish. They should have brought it in at the end. It would have added a whole new layer of meaning to the movie and would have made it better. The movie was excellent, but it should have ended with the ending of the dance scene. It was a classic and it should have ended with it. It was really sad that they didn't end it with the scene that would have made it a perfect ending.

In many ways the title "The Karate Kid" is an accurate description of the movie itself. The overall story is just like a dream, you just have to fall into it. So the main characters' dreams, friends and family and themselves become a "karate adventure" in this movie. Some characters do better in the actual story than in the movie. In the actual movie they did a better job than in the movie. Some scenes are not in the movie but in the real life. You can tell that they have actually gone through a lot of trouble to film the scenes in a specific manner. They are trying to show that being Japanese is not the same as being American or European or any other nationality, and that we should all strive to achieve our dreams. It's not a stereotypical film, it's one that anyone can watch and enjoy. There's not a wrong kind of film to watch, it depends on the person. My personal favorite character is Eric, he is just the coolest character ever. You will always see him on the screen and will always be waiting for him to get his. And I really do hope you watch it, you won't be disappointed. I give it 8/10

What the hell was with the change in perspective from the original Karate Kid to this one? The original Karate Kid (at least the film I saw) had an understanding of the mind of a child, and was a black comedy. This one seems to be completely uninvolved with anything else. How exactly did the director change the original plot? Something that wasn't funny wasn't funny any more. I don't really understand how this film can be considered a masterpiece of any kind. It was boring and annoying from the very start, and the only part that made me laugh was when the kid accidentally broke his back when he landed from the fight. It was like he knew he was going to die, and his friends were just laughing at him. The fight scene when they wanted to retire was still funny because they said "no, no, no, no" because they knew he would die. This one was a piece of garbage. The two main characters are supposed to be dumb, and this movie shows that they are not at all. Some people have said this is one of the best movies ever made. Well, I can't be that biased when I like a lot of movies, but this is just too ridiculous to be considered anything but a crap. It's not even that bad it's just not that good. This movie is one of the worst ever made.

The Karate Kid is an extremely entertaining film. It is not a movie you will want to miss. It's fast-paced, and the choreography and fighting are very good. There are plenty of laughs, and the movie is very lighthearted. I think the movie is better than most people give it credit for, and I have not seen a better one. The only complaint I have is the ending. If you haven't seen the movie, watch it. It's a lot better than the ending I thought it was going to be. I give this movie a 8 out of 10.
