A fatherless teenager faces his moment of truth in The Karate Kid.

Daniel (Ralph Macchio) arrives in Los Angeles from the east coast and faces the difficult task of making new friends. However, he becomes the object of bullying by the Cobras, a menacing gang of karate students, when he strikes up arelationship with Ali (Elisabeth Shue), the Cobra leader's ex-girlfriend.

Eager to fight back and impress his new girlfriend but afraid to confront the dangerous gang, Daniel asks his handyman Miyagi (Noriyuki 'Pat' Morita), whom he learns is a master of the martial arts, to teach him karate. Miyagi teaches Daniel that karate is a mastery over the self, mind, and body and that fighting is always the last answer to a problem. Under Miyagi's guidance, Daniel develops not only physical skills but also the faith and self-confidence to compete despite tremendous odds as he encounters the fight of his life in the exciting finale to this entertaining film.

Industry Reviews

"This film's art consists entirely of hiding the cynicism of its calculations under an agreeably modest and disarming manner." - Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine

"Morita is simply terrific, bringing the appropriate authority and wisdom to the part." - Variety

"An exciting, sweet-tempered, heart-warming story with one of the most interesting friendships in a long time." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"The Karate Kid exhibits warmth and friendly, predictable humor, its greatest assets." - Janet Maslin, New York Times
