The Karate Kid

directed by John G. Avildsen

Is there anything more timeless than a story of a youth who learns patience, confidence, and humility? What about a story about those things, but where the youth gets to kick some Cobra Kai ass? Enter The Karate Kid, written by action script ninja Robert Kamen and directed by John G. Avildsen (of Rocky fame), about a scrawny kid from Jersey with backbone to spare who moves out west with his mother. Danny Larusso (stay golden, Ralph Macchio) makes a love connection with Ali (an adorable Elisabeth Shue) which leads to a war between himself and the entire Cobra Kai dojo, lead by blond bully Johnny. Taking pity on him is Okinawa OG Miyagi, the handyman responsible for fixing Danny’s bike and his ability to defend himself. As Miyagi teaches Danny the essentials of martial arts, Danny learns to be a man who will fight for his honor, by using the “no can defense” crane technique. Pat Morita will forever be Mr. Miyagi to a generation of martial arts film lovers, a true sensei whom you refuse to doubt, ever, and Avildsen gives the film a pulse that resonates.
You're the best!
