This original Karate Kid is the best! Remakes are never as good. Stick to this version if you want passion and want to feel the real glory.

Daniel is new in town, and is getting picked on by the local bullies, who all are adept in karate.

Determined to stick up for himself, Daniel begins to teach himself karate, only to discover that the caretaker at his apartment seems to be a master of karate.

Agreeing to teach Daniel, Mr. Miyagi shows Daniel that there is more to karate than violence.

The best way to solve the problem he has with the bullies is in the All Valley Karate Championship.

While its probably one of the defining films of the eighties, the film has many flaws. It's basically Rocky for kids, and the film is way, way too long.

The film focuses too much on the romance side, and while that is good, a maguffin for Daniels rationale to learn Karate, along with the bullying, the film could have been trimmed by twenty minutes, taking out all the creepy parts where Daniel is being aggressive toward Shue.

Other than that, it's a fine movie, the bad guys wear black so you know where you are, and Kreese literally sneers and shouts his entire script, which makes the film fun whenever he's on screen.

Macchio is fine as Daniel San, but Morita blows him off screen whenever the two are together, which is 90 percent of the time Morita appears in this. Miyagi is a career defining performance, funny, and utterly harrowing when he has his drunk moment. A powerful moment in such a high concept blockbuster.

There are lots of standout scenes, and although the final act is exciting, nothing come close to the moment when Daniel learns why Miyagi has made him do all those chores, its jaw dropping stuff.

So all in all, its a fine movie, just way too long
