Reviews
Mine: A notch above the average teenage movie. A bit of cultural icon these days. Wax on, Wax off.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Teenager is beset by bullies until an unlikely mentor (the Japanese handyman in his apartment house) teaches him about self-confidence--and karate. Unabashedly old-fashioned, manipulative movie is a real audience-pleaser; from director of the original ROCKY. Winning performances by Macchio and Morita. If only they'd trimmed it a bit. Followed by three sequels (last is THE NEXT KARATE KID) and animated TV series.
