      The Karate Kid is very good and is better than the remake. This coming of age movie is a classic and is the first of three. The storyline is clever.

            This movie was great! Daniel has just moved from New Jersey to California and he is getting bullied because he is going out with the bully’s X girlfriend. So Mr. Miagi teaches him Karate so he can defend himself. It is a great movie, way better than the remake!
