About this product
- DescriptionNoriyuki 'Pat' Morita as Martial arts master Miyagi and Ralph Macchio star in director John G. Avildsen's KARATE KID trilogy. Contains THE KARATE KID, THE KARATE KID PART 2, and KARATE KID PART 3.
In THE KARATE KID, a young teenager who is plagued by attacks and cruel jokes by a gang of vengeful kids, takes karate lessons in the hope that it will make him strong. In the end he learns the more important lesson, that fighting is the last answer to a problem, not the first.
THE KARATE KID PART 2 continues the story of a young man growing up under the guidance of his Japanese mentor. Daniel and Miyagi travel to Okinawa where they find they are no longer part of a game played by the rules.
In THE KARATE KID PART 3, Daniel decides not to compete in a karate championship and he becomes the target of a vicious competitor who wants the title back. But when the relentless abuse becomes blackmail, Daniel goes against the sound advice of Miyagi and enters the competition, thus alienating the only person who can help him.

80's Cheese at it's best :o)
Fantastic 80's cheese at it's best! Perfect pizza movie. The second one is the best.....the third one gets a bit silly though, think they ran out of ideas! they dropped Daniel San (Ralph Machio) for the 4th Karate Kid Movie in favour of Ms.Swank...another mistake :o) Enjoy!

The 30-Year-Old Karate Man
Deep down, we all love a cheesy underdog movie, or at least should do, when in the last 5 minutes of a previously dull hour and a half, the struggling hero fights back to beat his/her evil nemesis/villain from next to nothing to become victorious. This is how I felt about the Karate Kid; utterly predictable but nevertheless brilliant cinema throughout. Following the life of Daniel LaRusso we start on an epic journey from New Jersey to his new home in the sunny paradise (well... maybe not apartment 20) of California, for the start of his mum's new job. And so to cut a long story short, he: 1. gets bullied at school 2. seeks the help of apartment block handyman/karate wizard Mr Miyag 3. beats crazed bullies 4. gets the girl (coinsidently the ex-girlfriend of the bully) The second film sets off from where the first film ends; at the Karate Championship LaRusso narrowly missed losing to previous 2 time champion Johnny Lawrence. LaRusso and Miyagi travel to Okinawa. LaRusso beats another crazed bully, this time a cousin of Miyagi's old best friend turned enemy, Sato. This saga goes on for another 90 minutes and ends in LaRusso, at the grand age of 25 (but still playing a college kid), turning to Miyagi and smiling, as in the first one. It's a shame that the filmmakers/writers decided to do a sequel to a brilliant first film, and another after that, and then yet another after that as it takes some of the brilliance away from the first, and frankly best, Karate Kid film. So, if you're a big fan of cheesy 80's cinema, I think I may have just sold the idea of buying the quadra-trilogy to you and you should hurry to get your sweaty mitts on the first boxed set you can find. But, if not then it's a safe bet to go out and just buy the first one. Read full review

it is a sheer classic.every time it is on the tv the kids ask if they can watch it but the problem is that we are in the middle of leaving to go out somewhere. To buy the product at the shops, it will cost a small fortune,and before you know it the film company has stopped producing it.
