The Karate Kid John G. Avildsen not only directed Rocky, he tried remaking it over the years in a dozen different ways. One of them was this popular 1984 drama about a new kid (Ralph Macchio) in town targeted by karate-wielding bullies until he gets a new mentor: the handyman (Pat Morita) from his apartment building, who teaches him self-confidence and fighting skills. The screen partnership of Macchio's motor-mouth character and Morita's reserved father figure works well, and the script allows for the younger man to develop sympathy for the painful memories of his teacher. But the film's real engine, as with Rocky, is the fighting, and there's plenty of that. Elisabeth Shue is on board as the girl the klutzy Macchio dreams of winning. --Tom Keogh

The Karate Kid, Part II Literally picking up about five minutes after the conclusion of the 1984 The Karate Kid, this 1986 sequel, also directed by John G. Avildsen, sends Ralph Macchio's and Pat Morita's characters to the latter's home turf in Japan, where the older man is confronted by an old rival, and Macchio's newly confident fighter gets a tougher challenge than the punks back home. Sillier than its predecessor, this follow-up at least has some distracting soap opera elements in Morita's coming to terms with an old flame, while Macchio woos a lovely local girl. Ironically, it's the action that evokes laughter, particularly a climactic fight that gets over the top quickly. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 80's films now on Blu July 12, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Few films defined the 80's more than The Karate Kid. Like Star Wars before it, and very few after it, the film transcended beyond a mere teen flick and became part of popular culture. The crane, "wax on, wax off", and the seemingly millions of blue and white bandanas that appeared overnight simply became part of our lives. While the second film never captured the charm of the original, it was (as intended) wildly successful and gave us a more in-depth look at the character that lifted the first film to classic status: Mr. Myagi.

Like all the classic "sports" films out there, The Karate Kid is not about Karate. There is an underdog story at its core(something the director John G.Avildsen knows a thing or two about, having directed the original Rocky). The film works because the hero, Daniel is not the "wimp" we are so used to seeing in these films that suddenly become supermen. He is kind of cocky and has an attitude. His reaction to the new world he encounters in California gets him branded as a troublemaker. In fact, the transformation he endures at the hands of his friend and teacher Mr. Myagi is not about becoming a martial arts phenom but rather about maturing as a human being and dealing with his problems.

And speaking of his teacher, Noriyuki "Pat" Morita simply hijacks this film and refused to give it back. Morita did not earn an Oscar nomination for this role as some sort of token. Mr. Myagi is one of the most complete, flesh and blood characters in the history of cinema. With absolutely no offense to Ralph Macchio, who plays Daniel as if The Karate Kid was his own life story, Morita is the heart and soul of this film. Every scene he is in is memorable.

No need for me to say much about these 2 movies, as everything has already been said by the millions of people that have seen the movies...
They are both Iconic movies of the 80's decade!

With the above being said, the blu ray editions of these movies are simply AWESOME...
Very crisp, clear, beautiful picture...
Sound is great & the special features are nice too...

Get this set, you will enjoy for years to come!
Thanks...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wax On, Wax Off June 28, 2011
By dgdbear
Format:Blu-ray
I knew as soon as Karate Kid 1 & 2 was announced for Blu-ray! They would be mine.

My wife and I watched them back to back on a relaxing Sunday evening and they really impressed me how well they hold up as popcorn entertainment.

I should point out that the scores are given based on BOTH films. In my opinion Karate Kid is a 4.5-5star movie and the video/audio package are better in this blu-ray collection.

The movies themselves...

Karate Kid is the 'Rocky story' told from the teenage perspective. The story was original at it's time but showing it to your teenage son would seem old hat and done before. That being said Karate Kid really pushes the envelope with a great cast, situations and soundtrack. It is these three variables that make this an enjoyable movie now 26 years later.

Mr. Miyagi steals the show in every scene from humour, sadness and confident teacher. You understand everything clearly and there are so many wonderful lines describing the way people should be it really makes someone think how bad society has gone over the years.

The second film continues right where the first ends and right away answers the question of how the 'evil' sensei handles the loss. I didn't remember as a child not having that conclusion after watching part 1. What I do remember however is how it turned out in an iconic and comical conclusion.

The scenery in part 2 should be more memorable and the little village Miyagi is from should have impressed more but I thought the camera views in part 2 just didn't capture what it really should have. I also feel due to the clothing and atmosphere part 2 doesn't hold up as well as part 1 and it really does feel '80's'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Blu-ray Transfer! August 20, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
These movies are classics, in my opinion. I was hoping the video quality on the first movie would be better, but it is definitely a worthwhile improvement over the DVD. The video on the 2nd movie is AMAZING considering its age, and audio (DTS, finally!) for both movies is great! This set is definitely worth the upgrade from DVD, as long as you don't want the 3rd movie. I personally didn't like the 3rd film, as I felt Daniel's character development was thrown out the window.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pat and Ralph never looked so good! July 11, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I know what you're thinking. How can an 80's movie look great just because it's on Blu Ray? It wasn't shot using digital photography techniques, so it can only be cleaned up so much right? Wrong. I have NEVER seen an 80's movie look as good as this set does. The images are so crystal clear they look like they were shot with a handicam. The audio is superb and has had the levels balanced much better than the dvd release in which the music tracks were overpowering the dialogue most of the time.

If you are a fan of the series or of 80's movies in general, this is a must have. You'll feel like you are seeing these movies for the first time because even if you saw them in the theater during their original release, you've NEVER seen them like this I guarantee it!
