Storyline

During a commemoration for Japanese soldiers fighting in the US Army during World War II, Mr. Miyagi meets the widow of his commanding officer. He gets to know her granddaughter Julie, an angry teenager who is still feeling the pain of losing both her parents in an accident and is having problems with her grandmother and her fellow pupils. Mr. Miyagi decides to teach her karate to get her through her pain and issues and back on the right path. Written by Matthias Scheler <tron@lyssa.owl.de>

C'mon it's not THAT bad.
16 July 2020 | by landenmeadorsSee all my reviews

Okay this movie doesn't touch the original three and it's not a masterpiece but it's tolerable and there is enjoyment to be found. I'm the biggest fan there is of the original 3, but this movie isn't quite as bad as they say.
