Crappy but entertaining
14 October 2003 | by SortyxtSee all my reviews

I found Karate Warrior at my video store for $.99. It's a poorly made "young guy learns karate from old Asian master in order fight his arch nemesis over a girl" type movie. The plot is lifted from The Karate Kid 2, but Karate Warrior expands on this by adding magic to the mix. Really, really stupid magic.

The funniest thing about this movie is the acting. It seems like the sound was recorded in a studio after filming had taken place, because all the performances are extremely stiff, and the characters all have rubber lips. They also all repeat the same words or phrases over again constantly.

All in all, this film is a piece of crap. But when you buy a movie called "Karate Warrior" you're probably not expecting Citizen Kane anyway.

3/10
