Did You Know?


The confrontation between Miguel and Robbie over Sam is very similar (and most likely a homage) to the first confrontation between Daniel and Johnny over Ali in the first "Karate Kid" movie. Both the conflicts happen because the boyfriend is jealous at seeing his girlfriend with another boy. Both conflicts take place at night, on the beach during a get-together, and a bonfire is burning in both instances. See more »


Danny offers Johnny, at the trade-in lot of his car dealership, a Subaru Forester, when in fact it's a Subaru Outback. See more »


Yasmine: Hey! You think it's funny crashing my party?
Aisha: It's not really your party, 'cause we were here first.
Yasmine: Yeah, well, I know you and your little karate gang think you're cool, but we all remember who you really are. You're just a fugly bitch and your friends are all freaks. Come on, Moon, let's go.
Moon: No. I'm staying. I apologized to Aisha for what we did, and you should too.
Yasmine: Whatever. You deserve them, Moon.
[Yasmine turns to leave]
Aisha: Hey, Yasmine!
Yasmine: Huh? What?
Aisha: Let me help you to your car.

Cobra Kai

Different But Same

The suffering and journey that the characters went through all these years comes in handy to project for the makers which they do and should use it to draw out the best emotions. The series does lack a major conundrum i.e. they do not possess strength on acting objective which might bite them on the long run. Although watching William Zabka and Ralph Machio share a screen is definitely electrifying which the makers are aware of and uses it wisely.

The technical aspects are better like choreography (action sequence can be tough to project for the mature actors) and background score. The writing is cheesy, corny and questionable with a familiar plot that it mostly walks on but somehow between creation and execution it still works like a charm in here.

The build up to the climax has been stretched since now and now when finally it hits, it hits hard and fast which is always good but in here comes off questionable somewhat due to uneven pacing that may feel like something is missing.
