Editorial Reviews

Ralph Macchio and Noriyuki “Pat” Morita return with more invaluable lessons about life, honor and friendship in THE KARATE KID PART III, directed by Oscar®-winner John G. Avildsen (Best Directing, Rocky 1976). John Kreese (Martin Kove) is back and more dangerous than ever! Blaming Daniel (Macchio) and Miyagi (Morita) for the loss of his karate school, the revenge-obsessed sensei asks evil martial arts master Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) to help him win back the All Valley Championship and avenge his honor. So when Miyagi wisely refuses to help him defend a plastic trophy, Daniel unwisely decides to train with Terry instead, unaware he’s being set up for a terrible fall.

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.

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.

Format: DVD
Daniel Larusso is painful in this 3rd installment of the same old story that has been present since the the first movie. Daniel never shuts up in this movie, and constantly rambles on and on in just about every conversation. At times I would even say out loud, "For God's sake, shut the hell up!" Trying to pass this guy off as a "kid" once again failed miserably as Daniel not only looked older, but gained about 300 pounds since the second movie. As brilliant as Pat Morita's acting is, it seemed as if he was just trying to get through this film to say, "Just give me my money and let's get it over with." The over the top acting by the Terry Silver character was horrible, and the only thing that vaguely caused a snicker out of me was Miagi's "Whoa... whoa" mocking of Silver's pitiful Bruce Lee impression.
It's too bad that the producers didn't retire the franchise after his abortion, but continued on with some nauseating attempt at one more try with "The Next Karate Kid," which I sometimes wonder if it ever even showed up in movie theaters. Perhaps this movie will end up in the movie making texts under the chapter of "Don't let this happen to you."

Now this 3rd (and should have been last installment of this franchise...instead they came with "The NEXT karate kid with Hillary Swank)

Was just not acceptable!

First of all the editing sucked, some scenes Daniel (Ralph Macchio) looked fat and other scenes he looked slim, and other scenes there after he looked like he was GETTING fat. His jeans were ridiculously tight in some scenes.

So you didn't know which was before or after.They were then merged together to confuse us...the overall result was "fat".

How and why would they get the girl from "Teen Witch" (Robyn lively) to play a love interest that was doomed before the movie even reached 30 minutes with the "I already have a boyfriend" why are you taking up space in this weren't all that pretty!!

Pat Morita is great as always but even his mentality was on "Speed yawn" for this movie...he was just going through the contract.

Apparently alot of reviewers giving 5 stars saw Karate kid 3 first and saw the Karate kid 1 afterwards (same story). This would I guess be perfectly normal because they showed part 3 ALOT in the late 80s and early 90s on cable and I can't remember seing part 1 in almost 10 years even on regular TV.

Tons and tons of unnecessary over-acting in this one by Thomas Ian Griffin (laughing uncontrallably..almost comically..something out of a cartoon almost)and the "Johnny" looka-like dude.

Was it me or did the bad guys who wanted Daniel to sign the Tournament contract to fight against him seem to not have lives and show up where ever he was at? He's in the middle of a Bonzai hunting expedition with Mr. Miyagi and then they show up?All Daniel had to do was sign the contract and the movie would've been 15 minutes...
