  1. HKFanatic's rating of the film The Karate Kid

    I somehow managed to go my entire life without seeing "The Karate Kid." Fortunately, this is a film that works as well for adults as it does the expected youth demo: "Rocky" director John Avildsen opts for long takes that favor performance and characterization, Ralph Macchio and Elizabeth Shue have terrific chemistry, and if you can make it through the ending without misting up a little you're a tougher SOB than me.

  3. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Karate Kid

    To any kid or teenager who got bullied at school and daydream about how cool it would be to be trained by an expert of karate so that he can take revenge and kick some ass - and run off with the cutest girl at the end. Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita is a good memorable film screen duo as John G. Avildsen remakes his past success "Rocky" for teenagers.

    Teen proves experience and strength count for nothing if you don't help old people around the house.

  9. CFranc's rating of the film The Karate Kid

    A narratively lacking yet earnest crowdpleaser. RIP John Avildsen

  11. truffraud's rating of the film The Karate Kid

    ethnocentric, unsubtle, and unintentionally campy. deserves its place as a staple of the 80s

  12. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film The Karate Kid

    The scenes with his sensei are brilliantly scripted. It was well filmed as well. I don't really believe in some of its sentimentality, but that fact is forgivable given that it has subtlety and has nearly perfect, precise cinematography (though I wonder if that cameraman was in the ending arena scene which looks like a crawlspace, a good cinematographer could have fixed that even if it was small.

  13. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film The Karate Kid

  17. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Karate Kid

    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!... die ganze Rezension sowie die schönsten 80er Teenie Filme auf cinegeek.de
