Editorial Reviews

Kreese, the ex-marine whom Miyagi humbled with a few punches and kicks, has never forgotten the bitter taste of defeat. Bankrupt after the first tournament defeat, he's back with a particularly nasty friend and a new trainer--and he's aching to lure Miya

3.0 out of 5 stars Not *that* bad, but not as good as some say November 21, 2008
Format:DVD
Karate Kid III has gotten a lot of play time on cable TV, which is where I first saw it. Not nearly as beloved as the previous two installments for a variety of reasons it's generally panned as being cartoonishly acted and using the same basic formula as it's predecessors. Ralph Macchio returns as the getting older but seldom wiser Daniel while Pat Morita resumes the role of the sagely guiding force of Mr. Miyagi.

First off, despite my 3 star rating, I actually *did* enjoy this movie. There are parts in the movie that really shine and then others that are slogged down by what can only be described as the result of over the top acting and in may ways a really weak script. It's a pretty simple plot that can be described in a single paragraph.

Daniel and Mr. Miyagi return from Okinawa (the events of which are barely mentioned) and Daniel is about to go to college. Mr. Miyagi discovers that his previous job, handyman at the apartment/motel of KK1, has essentially ceased to exist, so Daniel uses his college money to buy Mr. Miyagi a bonsai tree shop. The All-Valley Karate Tournament is due to begin again and while initially determined to participate Daniel eventually opts out so that he can help Mr. Miyagi with his shop. Meanwhile John Kreese, the villainous sensei of the Cobra Kai dojo (of the first film) loses his business and opts to move on with his life before being dissuaded by his Vietnam War buddy, Terry Silver, who happens to be some sort of free enterprise mogul with a focus on dumping hazardous waste. The two plot revenge on Daniel (and by extension Mr. Miyagi) by making him enter the tournament and adminstering an excruciating public arsebeating there.

First off, despite what anyone else has said Thomas Ian Griffith really shines as main villain Terry Silver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant Film....... Genius! November 8, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
KKIII is a modern-day Greek tragedy. The universal themes of love, betrayal and quicksilver are thoroughly explored in this stunning classic. I have not seen writing like this since Aristophanes.
In Terry Silver, billionaire toxic waste peddler, we have the perfect foil. This morality play begins to unfold when Danny-boy is forced to sign the entry form to defend his All-Valley championship. "I think a champion should defend his title," observes Silver in one of the most gripping and compelling scenes imaginable.
Mike Barnes and Snake (and, to a lesser extent, Dennis) provide the fuel for Danny-boy's moral fire. The scene in the bonsai shop that ends in the mustang convertable being nearly smashed by a speeding locomotive is reminiscent of early Kafka.
Constantly challenging and never boring, KKIII forces each of us to look in the mirror. For indeed, who can really know when our real, actual John Kreise will jump from behind the cardboard imitation?
In closing, keep in mind Myagi's admonition: "Karate fought for plastic metal trophy no mean nothing." Indeed. I couldn't sum it up any better than that.
A definite 5-star classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of Daniel san's story September 21, 2003
Format:DVD
Right up there with the most inspirational films of our time, Karate Kid III is a testament to the human spirit. In this installment our favorite karate instructor, Sensei Kreese is torn by his demise at the hands of Daniel and Miyagi in the first film. Afterall, Daniel defeated Johnny at the All Valley Tournament. Where is there left to go for Kreese. You would think his life is over, but no. He turns to his rich friend Terry Silver for the answer. Mr. Silver is strangely obsessed over getting back at Miyagi and Daniel. I think he wanted it more than Kreese even for some reason. So he makes himself appear as a nobody, he even drives a little truck with no roof on it. Then he finds karate's bad boy, Mike Barnes...a performance that outshines perhaps any yet in the Karate Kid series. Barnes, and his two new friends, Snake and Dennis, eventually bully poor Daniel into signing up for the tourney. Silver finds a way to become friends with Daniel and basically makes him his puppet. He wills Daniel to fight without mercy and to go against all Daniel stands for by trying to convince him to fight dirty. Daniel doesn't really like it but he keeps studying under Silver for a while until he realizes the error of his way. At one point he asks Miyagi to teach him to sweep, in which Miyagi comes back with a broom and begins sweeping the steps. Brilliant. It all comes to an end at the tournament where Daniel must face his fear, and take on Mike Barnes. Daniel pulls no punches and unleashes his fury upon Barnes. Perhaps one of the greatest martial arts displays ever on film.

5.0 out of 5 stars truly outstanding third installment of the series April 3, 2004
Format:DVD
a lot of hate with this one, some of it justified, but who cares! this is simply one awesome movie, and it's a MOVIE. that means it doesn't have to be 100% accurate all the time!
Sensei Kresse wants to avenge his humiliation at the end of Part 2, by teaming up with his vietnam partner Terry Silver, what an evil duo! and then, they recruit Mike Barnes, Snake, and Dennis to cause havoc on Daniel and Mr Miyagi, but no way! in the end, against all odds, Daniel and Mr Miyagi overthrow the evil and win. ahh i still remember when i saw this movie in the theatre, and the scene in the dojo where Barnes is beating Daniel into a pulp in front of Kresse and Silver, ('You want to see more?'asks Silver - 'I want to see a LOT more!' shouts Kresse) - but then when Mr Miyagi throws Barnes through the dojo doors to help his student, the entire theatre hall exploded into cheers and screams! that is the power of this movie. tremendous performances from everybody involved, i really can't fault it one bit. A must buy.

It was a great third installment, however the second one is still my favorite. You do get to see Mr. Miyagi kick some ass in it again though.

The story plot was horrible. The karate kid is bi-polar and the bad guys aren't believable. Plus what is with all the cursing?
