Karate Kid Pt III

Following this post yesterday, I watched The Karate Kid: Part III yesterday and, to be fair, most of it was pretty awful. The script did actually have some good ideas but the acting was very hammy and the whole thing just felt far too familar. In each film, and even more so in this one, the plot is:

  • Daniel gets beaten to a squashy pulp (repeatedly) (bet this doesn't happen in the fourth one, since the karate kid is a girl...)
  • Seems to have lost
  • Somehow wins in the last seconds
  • End of film


It was sort of okay, but out of the three I would only rate the first film as actually being good. The dialogue is funny enough to overcome the sterotyped characters and iffy production values in that one.
