The Karate Kid, Part III (1989)
So what if this movie was nominated for a "Razzie"? This movie actually wraps up the trilogy quite nicely. Daniel LaRusso's character needed a conflict, where things were no longer black and white on the surface, to grow. Daniel now has some power and responsibility, how will he handle it? Granted, the back story of the "new" Cobra Kai was laughable, and Mike Barnes's character was less intimidating that Chozen's. The same people who didn't like Return of the Jedi (in the Star Wars OT) won't like this film, for basically the same reasons. Towards the end, there was a lot of re-use of elements of the first movie, and going from a fight to the death, back to a point karate-tournament match in the finals may have hurt the payoff at the end. However, all-in-all, this was a worthy entry to the trilogy.
