This movie was great! Mr. Miyagi is a really fun character and I love the relationship between him and Daniel.

This is one of the most hilarious movies I have ever watched. Maybe I would like to again. :D

Thought this was a great movie for both girls and guys. There's plenty of action, humour and romance. The characters are very believable, and the ending put a smile on my face. A really good family movie.

Saw both KARATE KID movies, and though both were good the remake was missing a key aspect. What the teacher was teaching the boy wasn't Karate, but Kung Fu. Also the original consentrated less on the fighting, and more on the relationship between the student and the teacher. Next time they shoult tory and have Daniel become the teacher to a brand new student.

This was the first and best of "The Karate Kid" movies. Mr. Mayagi was a B.A. teacher.

This is the best one in the series. It beat the modern remake with Jackie Chan. Even though Chan's amazing. but the old mentor man role like Mr Miyagi doesn't suit his character. He just too much of an action guy. Maybe when he's 65 he'll fit it better.
