Hilarious. I think my stomach is still sore. (by surrydaniel)
the worst movie ever made in my opinion, also the funniest. This isn't terrible like "Face Off" or "Con Air" or even "Airborne"...these films were able to do much more of what they intended. There are no jokes in Karate Kid 3. just trash. The script is so horrible and Macchio knows it, that's why he has to overact with his body... He hops around like a pogo stick in an attempt to make the dullness and pointlessness go away. It honestly sounds like a 6th grader wrote the script. And the acting is putrid. The love interest is completely pointless they <more>
decide to be friends before leaving on their first date , and her acting is not even worthy of a detailed criticism. THere is so much here... I could go on forever, so I'll just mention the biggest plot foul-up. The bad guys spend the whole movie trying to force Macchio to defend his "Under 18" All Valley Tournament he's a real life 27 yr old while periodically kicking the hell out of him... Why force him to enter the tournament? Just kick the hell out of him. Anyway, with the stale, worn out, bottom of the barrel guidance of Myagi, Larusso pulls out a one punch victory to finish the tournament over his nemesis, who had been penalized points for kicking the hell out of him illegally throughout the match. So Larusso is beside himself with pride, laughing, cheering and pointing to Myagi in triumph. Now, what's to stop his enemies from kicking the hell out of him as soon as he leaves the building? Bottom line is the story and acting are both the worst failures I think I've ever seen. There was nothing that worked. Only exciting moment is Myagi taking on 3 dudes, but it's obviously a stunt double. F for intent. A plus for accidental humor. It's literally given me and a friend a stomach ache on several occasions. we couldn't breathe. I recommend it with all my heart.
Number three should have died the death, but it didn't. (by loza-1)
Perhaps the film company was a little short so far as budget is concerned; but this time we are back in the USA, and John Kreese, the thug who ran the dojo in number one, and who got both his fists cut up in number 2 returns with an ally. For the first time, we see a little depth to Kreese, who starts the film by falling apart; we see that Kreese has done military service, and it is probably his experiences on service that has screwed him up.The ally is a lot more complex: the silver-tongued, pony-tailed Terry Silver, excellently played by Thomas Ian Griffith.Pat Morita steadily plays the <more>
wise Miyagi, who goes into business selling his other passion: bonsai trees. But business is threatened when Kreese and his thugs try to goad the karate kid into a revenge match.This time, the kid rejects the teachings of his sensei, and follows a path mapped out for him by Silver. The kid becomes frightened when he breaks the nose of an idiot in a nightclub, and returns to the one true path just in time for the revenge match.It is easy to find criticisms in number three. The plot is predictable Although I did not find the film at all threadbare.Speaking objectively, if I had to choose which of the three karate kid films I liked the best, it would be this one. For all its faults the oriental philosophy is still running through it; and it underlines in a more elaborate way the message of the first film: karate is a sport and a form of self improvement, and has nothing to do with thuggery.
Best of the series and best movie in general!!!! (by billy_bass)
This movie is great. Ralph Macchio brings it and so does Pat Morita. John Kreese comes back to kick some butt and this time he has the help of "as bad as he wants to be" Terry Silver.Thomas Ian Griffith gives one of the greatest performances ever captured on film.This movie also contains other classic villains such a Snake You know it! and Karate's bad-boy Mike Barnes the tournament terror.A lot of jerks try to say this movie isn't any good but they obviously have no taste.This is better than Jaws even.I would tell anyone to buy this movie because you will want to watch it <more>
Dear God, Please Rid Us Of Daniel!!! (by Khaled Yafi-01)
What is Daniel Larusso's problem? Why after three torturous films is he no more a man than when he first moved to L.A? I just don't get it!! In the first installment he had an excuse to be a sissy; he was being bullied by the bad boys of his new school and he didn't know how to defend himself. I accept that! In the second one, he was in a foreign land and was being bullied by some oriental bad-boy. He gets his butt kicked throughout until the last scene when in the face of near death, he looks into Miyagi's eyes and gets the inspiration to overcome fear and win the day and the <more>
girl. I don't buy it but I can bear it!! In the third installment, he projects so much obnoxiousness and pathetic emotion that you hope that his clearly, superior opponents will kick his ass once and for all. No such luck!! In this film Daniel is forced to defend his title which requires him to fight only the final match. Easy enough no? His opponent is some blonde punk who is being trained by Kreese the disgraced teacher in the first film whose nose Miyagi twists to render him unconscious and backed by the finances of Terry Silver, a smooth Karate kicking business man. Silver, played with nice slick touches by Thomas Ian Griffith is watchable as he disrupts Daniel's level of discipline and successfully convinces Daniel that he wants to help him defend his title after Miyagi refuses. Daniel, idiot that he is, can't see the charade and accepts his help. Griffith projects some air of smoothness but doesn't quite convince he's really all that cool. Still some Karate student that I know, Amir Hashim-Zada seems to think he epitomizes 21st Century Maleness. To each his own, I guess! The three of them have a business deal going that requires Daniel to fight the final and get beaten in order for their new Dojo's to be opened. Miyagi refuses to train Daniel because he feels Daniel's reasons for defense are wrong. Please excuse Daniel for getting beaten up throughout the film and being forced to enter the tournament!!. Sorry Miyagi, how unreasonable Daniel has become!!! Anyway enough plot....What I don't get is why Daniel complains and cries consistently about his circumstances and seems to have forgotten any skills that Miyagi has taught him over the past couple of films. That is until, in the heat of the moment, he looks into Miyagi's eyes and everything comes back!! How realistic!! . I loved the first film, for although Daniel was predictably annoying, he was living out the zero to hero story we all love. And Miyagi became a household name that we couldn't not love. Incidentally, Miyagi remains good throughout the films. Without him the movie hasn't a leg to stand on. It's a real statement on the charisma of the leading man Macchio. He simply has none. The trouble with Daniel is that he has the weakest personality that doesn't ever appear to develop, despite all Miyagi's wisdom, until the last 2 minutes of the film. I can accept that these films don't expect that much from the viewer, but come on!!, we should at least believe that Daniel is a worthy hero by the end. I find it really funny that Miyagi likens Daniel's spirit to that of a bonsai tree with a strong root. Daniel seems to make Miyagi's wisdom and teachings look meaningless. Daniel ought to be a man's man by this film, but he still walks like a girl, he talks like a girl, and BY GOD he still FIGHTS like a girl!!!Any sympathy you may have mustered for him from the past two films is quickly dispensed in this film because he whines and cries when things consistently don't go his way. For God's Sake Daniel, are you that dense, since when do things go your way??? By now you should be man enough to deal with the bad things in life!!!! Everyone else does and most haven't had the privilege of Miyagi's teachings!! I must say the final scene is truly pathetic!!The bad boy is keen to win a point then lose a point thereby keeping the scores at 0-0. He wants Daniel to suffer Don't we all? so he claims a legitimate point then beats the life out of him to lose the point. The match makes it abundantly clear that Daniel is 5 belts worse than this guy. BUT the match tied at 0-0 thanks entirely to the bad-boy, goes into sudden death when Daniel searches deep inside of himself, giving the obligatory look to Miyagi, and pulls off one good move and wins the match. Then he has the arrogance to say "Yes We did It" as if he should have the audacity to think he deserved to win the fight. It could be poor writing or bad acting, or both, but it's a pity that even after 3 films, even my young girl cousin reckons she could beat up whimpy Daniel!! The irony of all of this, is that this film is shamefully watchable. I like it because Daniel forces giggles from the audience and Miyagi is always watchable as he chants his pearls of wisdom and does his various spiritual mantra's that are meant to mean something!! Sorry Miyagi, I didn't quite catch their significance this time around, and as much as I like you, I fear Daniel has not learned a bleeding thing from you since you met him!!!
Ralph Chunkio, but a great movie. (by chrisruleshughes)
OK, it's obviously been at least two years between karate kid 2 and 3, so why on earth does the director feel the need to make it look like Daniel is coming back from Okinawa, when it's clear for everyone to see the difference, he's aged, he's got more flip, and yes, the actor has got fatter. Have you seen his chubby cheeks? All of this aside, the movie is very good i feel. Thomas Ian Griffith's performance is classic, threatening, but very funny. The conflict between teacher and student becomes a tad boring though,plus the little sweet love story between Danial and the <more>
tree girl is insulting, we have seen this in the first two movies, forget it,move on.This is way better than the second, and has some better moments than the 1st. It's the most comical if you like that sinister style.
Diabolical film, but a good laugh (by dmusucksdonkey)
I've read a lot of the comments others have left about Karate Kid 3, and although the majority of them have a point, please bear in mind it's the third in the series of the Karate Kid movies for heaven's sake! Why are you people seriously analysing the realism of it? The whole concept from day one has been ridiculous. OK, so it IS possible for some wee wiener to somehow win a karate competition in a month or two of waxing cars, and painting fences, against guys who have been doing karate for probably their whole lives. But come on, the whole Mr Miyagi thing clapping his hands and <more>
rubbing Daniel's leg? Who is he, Jesus? So, when you bear in mind the whole series are stupid, why heavily criticise the film? You've obviously sat through one and two, so should know by now that the film is going to be poo, but it will be enjoyable. An ideal film to watch when you've had a few beers, or fancy laughing at the cheesy bad guy characters they've thrown in. How can anyone seriously say they don't like the film when Terry Silver delivers such classic likes as "I love it when he pounds him!"? I would recommend watching this movie, but watch it with a pinch of salt. Just enjoy the roller-coaster ride of hammy acting, and seriously un-menacing bad guys they have. I mean, Kreece was a cheesy slime-ball in Cagney and Lacey for God's sake. Are you really going to feel intimidated by him?
This returns to the concept of the under-dog.Daniel wants to defend his championship but Mr.Miyagi has other ideas while Kreese brings in a friend to help him gain revenge. This is unlike the previous movies it sees the deterioration of the friendship between Miyagi and Daniel.Daniel is swayed from the 'right' way and begins to lose control of his anger and realises his wrong....The Miyagi fight scenes are always exciting; especially when he takes on Silver and beats the **** out of him....One thing that was a little annoying and lets face it a let down, they got rid of the Kumiko <more>
from the second movie; and it seems to me Daniel is a player...An entertaining movie nonetheless.
Now I know a lot of people will hate me for enjoying this movie, but I did. The hidden message in this film is powerful, and most will not get it. Can you guess what the message is? Here's a hint: Look at the poster!So John Kreese returns with his pal Terry Silver to take revenge on Daniel and Miyagi. For me this was perfect, because Kreese was to me the greatest antagonist of the Karate Kid franchise, and still is. Most people will criticize it for copying the original, but for me, only 40% is copied. Also, it's not as bad as Rocky V. Rocky V was a train-wreck. I liked seeing the <more>
fight scene of Miyagi vs Kreese and Silver, that's something I always wanted to see even though it was brief, and the chemistry between the two leads is still there.Have you figured out the message yet? Okay, I'll tell you: I believe this movie sends a message to all those kids finally becoming adults. Like the poster said: "Now it's Man to Man." There's a time in life where a kid will choose to associate with people who do not have their best interests at heart Like Daniel and Silver , and this may cause them to hurt their parents Daniel hurting Miyagi . But if they remember who has supported them all this time and "Listen to their heart". They will never forget what makes them strong and become the person they are meant to be.A thrilling conclusion to the original Karate Kid trilogy. Onto Cobra Kai!!
