Easily in my top ten of all time! This story will move and excite you with pin point performances and stand out set pieces, not to mention the awe inspiring music. You don't watch The Karate Kid, you experience it. Re-live that final climatic moment again and again, it never tires! Magical!

  still "The Best"...a-round!

Still the original. Still the classic. Still the BEST!

Only the "Old One" could teach him the secrets of the masters...and only the "Old One" is the best...forget the "remake" that has Kung-fu, not karate...watch this- deffinatly worth it- still a fantastic movie, ageless, and timeless!

If you are not happy with this, a few hours of painting the fence should calm you down...

BRING BACK THE 80'S! WOW, I love this film, I was 10 when this was first released and like many kids of that era I was so inspired I took up martial arts and am now an instructor, 15 years later I still watch this film with fond memories of the time.

this film is awesome stuff! i remember me and my brother used to watch it all the time when we were younger! and we did karate because of it! its directed by the same guy who did rocky aswell which doesent surprise me! since this is rocky with karate instead of boxing! very nostalgic stuff! and it doesent dissapoint now im alot older like some films! my advice grab the anthology boxset! you get more for your moola!!!.

What a fantastic film. Ralph Macchio is brillant as Daniel & in a way is a coming of age film. Pat Moira became somewhat of an icon as Mr Moyughi, Daniel's Sensi/Teacher/Companion & was incidentally nominated for an Oscar. Also features a young Elizabth Shue before she found fame. As seemed to be the case with alot of 80s classics, the originals are always the best & the sequels were often a let down & this was no different. This Special Edition is a worthy purchase for any Karate Kid fan!!

  A karate classic!

After not seeing the movie for quite some time I decided to re-watch it recently and I can tell you that you that it's still one of my favourite movies of all time. One of the main reasons for that is because of the great chemistry between the two main characters of Mr Miyagi and Daniel san. And also the story because there's a lot of meaning to it.

On the DVD there's a few featurettes and trailers but the best extra would have to be the commentary which also includes Pat Mortia and Ralph Macchio. I haven't listened to it all the way through but from what I did hear it was very informative and the participants seemed to be enjoying it so that's always a plus. Anyway I would highly recommend this movie to those who haven't seen it!
