Movie Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger EbertThe Karate Kid was one of the nice surprises of 1984 -- an exciting, sweet-tempered, heart-warming story with one of the most interesting friendships in a long time.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 9/10 by Emanuel LevyUpbeat, sentimental and predictable tale, but the acting of Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita (who was Oscar-nominated) is good and their friendship charming.
Variety - 9/10 by Variety StaffMorita is simply terrific, bringing the appropriate authority and wisdom to the part.
Decent Films Guide - 9/10 by Steven D. GreydanusFormulaic, manipulative, hokey — and thoroughly rousing… the film's sincerity and poignance have a way of steamrolling over gaps in plausibility and logic.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Rita KempleyJohn G. Avildsen is back in the Rocky ring with The Karate Kid. More precisely, it is a Rocky for kids. Morita is simply terrific, bringing the appropriate authority and wisdom to the part.
Bangitout.com - 8/10 by Jordan HillerAvildsen crafted an inspired movie with the perfect mix of 80's bravado and 70's artistic integrity.
Groucho Reviews - 8/10 by Peter CanaveseThe Karate Kid brought something fresh to the table and proved exceptionally skilled at reaching its adolescent audience. [Blu-ray]
Common Sense Media - 8/10 by Sandie Angulo Chen'80s classic is still fun for families with older tweens.
Austin Chronicle - 8/10 by Marjorie BaumgartenThe movie birthed three sequels and features the sweet relationship between Macchio and Morita.
TIME Magazine - 8/10 by Richard SchickelThis film's art consists entirely of hiding the cynicism of its calculations under an agreeably modest and disarming manner.
