THE KARATE KID (Theatrical Release USA 1984)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.2|5.0 Starsììì

The Karate Kid
has moral essence. The film teaches: Listen and learn from your teachers and elders, work hard doing what you love, and success comes when you faithfully overcome obstacles that come your way. While the acting is ‘usual,’ the movie has a certain refreshing quality about it that pleases.
