Andrew Staton Reviews
The first four Karate Kid film series have all the elements of complete family fun and rewards with a focus on martial arts and drama. The first film was made by Robert Mark Kamen and produced by Columbia images. The series focuses on following the journeys of various teenage teenagers, who are taught martial arts by an experienced mentor in the form of Mr. Miyagi, played by Pat Morita. He teaches them combat skills that will allow them to stand up for themselves, stop bullying rapists and help others.
This film series includes The Karate Kid 1, 2 and 3 and Next Karate Kid. The secret of these films was not only great acting performances, but also the use of martial arts as a way of growing up and portraying it on screen. One man, Pat Johnson, of the Black Belt in Tang Soo Do, who appeared in the opening scene with John Saxon in “Enter The Dragon” and was also Chuck Norris’ best coach, was to blame. He knew Bruce Lee personally and, along with his own knowledge, was able to bring incredible fun martial arts to the screen, even after the White Crane Kung Fu Kick at the end of the first film. When asked why Kung Fu kicked and not Karate Kick, he just said, “It looked so damn good on the screen,” and laughed.
One of the defining martial arts film franchises of all time. He launched many, many martial artists’ travels.
The incredible box set The Karate Kid Collectible Limited Edition 4k HD set is now available from December 6.
From director John G. Avildsen (1976, ROCKY), Oscar® winner, comes a very fun classic for adolescents that will cheer you up! Starring Ralph Macchio and Noriyuki “Pat” Morita in the Oscar®-nominated performance (Best Supporting Actor, 1984) as Mr. Miyagi.
There is more to karate than fighting. This is a lesson that Daniel (Macchio), a teenager from San Fernando Valley, is going to learn from an unexpected teacher: Mr. Miyagi (Morita), an elderly handyman who, coincidentally, is also a martial arts master. When Miyagi saves Daniel from Cobra Kai, a vicious gang of karate schoolers, he instills in his young friend the importance of honor and trust.
self-defense skills, vital lessons that come into play when the hopelessly outclassed Daniel fights Johnny, the sadistic leader of Cobra Kai, in a karate tournament with no restrictions for the Valley Championship.
KARATE KID PART II
Miyagi (Noriyuki “Pat” Morita) returns with Daniel (Ralph Maccio) to his home in Okinawa for the first time in 45 years and meets Yukie (Nobu McCarthy), the woman he left behind when he emigrated to America. And just as Daniel falls in love with her teenage niece Kumiko (Tamlyn Tomita), enemies arise who question the happiness of both couples: Sato (Danny Kanekona), the man Yukie was supposed to marry, and Chozen (Yuji Okumoto), his evil nephew, which he immediately hated Daniel. And now, to satisfy their family honor, they have challenged Miyagi and Daniel each to a duel, karate matches so brutal that only the winners will survive.
KARATE KID PART III
Daniel is in danger of losing everything when he puts pride in principle in this powerful sequel to a successful feature film.
Ralph Macchio and Noriyuki “Pat” Morita return with other invaluable lessons on life, honor and friendship in KARATE KID PART III, directed by Oscar® winner John G. Avildsen (Best Director, Rocky 1976).
John Kreese (Martin Kove) is back and more dangerous than ever! Sensei, obsessed with revenge, accuses Daniel (Macchio) and Miyagi (Morita) of losing his karate school and asks evil martial arts master Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) to help him win back the All Valley Championship and avenge his honor. So when Miyagi wisely refuses to help him defend the plastic trophy, Daniel wisely decides to train with Terry instead, unaware that he is ready for a terrible fall.
