Goofs

During the storm scene, after Sato is saved by Miyagi and Daniel, and Chozen stayed inside the shelter, Chozen says to Sato that he thought Sato was dead. When Sato tells Chozen to go help Daniel and he refuses, Sato tells him "Now, to you, I am dead". However, during the Castle scene, when Sato tries to get Chozen to calm down, Chozen tells him that he cannot hear him because "I am dead to you, remember?". It's a clear mistake and the script was trying to say instead "You are dead to me". Since Sato is dead to Chozen, Chozen cannot hear him. It doesn't even make sense the other way around. See more »

Wonderful childhood memories
16 June 2003 | by (Liverpool, New York) – See all my reviews

I can't tell you how good it made me feel to recapture the joy I first experienced in the theater. I was 12 years old when this came out. The story and plot are simple, and the lessons are very clear. They definitely don't make films like this nowadays. Memories of me sitting in the theater alongside my grandmother, eating loads of buttery popcorn, and telling her about all the good scenes (she couldn't see well)

I have seen this movie over 200 times, and never get tired of it. I recommend viewing both The Karate Kid, and the sequel to at least get the full effect.

Awesome 80's flick, and one I'm proud to own. Five stars.
