A classic story with a hero that protects your favorite girl from the evil bully. It would seem, is nothing new, this zalesiany the plot was not used in a movie, but we cannot deny the fact that "the karate Kid" became a kind of personification of the era 80. The film, which encouraged not one teenager to great achievements in the martial art of karate.

Casting — budget they played with dignity. I especially like the work of the late Pat Morita win back modest Sensei.

What music-wise, the main theme that plays directly on the tournament, to still not out of the head. She fills you up some drive and the beauty of the time that unspeakably happy every time you hear it.

Perhaps the modern viewer, who has seen a lot, and will not see in this film highlights the unique and on the contrary, it seems all this a boring trivial. But again, that the film was shot for generations of people of the 80s. that is why, in 2010 a remake with Jackie Chan offspring will Smith title role, under the same name.

If you it has not seen, I advise to look. This increase your Outlook and possibly motivate to do great things.

"Mr. Miyagi! What do You do?", — with amazement asked Daniel, coming into the dojo.

"Daniel-San, I catch a fly with chopsticks", — with perfect calmness said Sensei, continuing to go about their simple business.

"But, Mr. Miyagi, isn't it easier to take the fly swatter?..", — asked the boy, with great interest watching the teacher.

"Ah, who can catch a fly with chopsticks, he can do anything!", — said Miyagi, still snapping at the air with chopsticks.

"the karate Kid"... Along with such films as "No retreat — don't give up", "Kickboxer" "rocky" this film was for me a child (as now) a wonderful landmark in life about sport, healthy lifestyle, in the ability and desire to win. Very simple plot, not burdened with other difficulties, bright and fascinating story, great ending, and every moment of this picture, — all the ribbon is so poignant, impressive, funny and memorable that just "A-Ah!.."

This film always attracted me with its candour, sincerity of the characters and the truthfulness of the canvas of the plot. The force will the power of the spirit of Daniel Larusso, — the guy-karate not could not result in delight not be forced to emulate in the tenacity, determination and achieving the planned goals. On my opinion, it is in this film (and in its subsequent sequels) as not demonstrated great object lesson of personality as such mastery of man's place under the Sun.

As a child I just love to watch "Guy-karate," and subsequent continuations that were made to rejoice and triumph together with the heroes, rejoice in the victory of the "good guys" over "bad," and enthusiastically "to rave" this lovely story about a win, sports martial arts. But otherwise I was not themselves if this story is not would me positive feelings, joy for the protagonist of the inspired state, when the Cup "the Championship of the valley" deservedly went Larusso. What also, every moment of the picture in particular, all together brought me in indescribable delight, there is a desire here to do karate, do push-UPS, chin-UPS — be on the side of truth and justice, of purity of spirit and kindness of heart.

Summary: we have before us a magnificent movie of a sports sample-80s, which have any family members — and the little children and gray-haired grandfathers and grandmothers.

Well, only 10 out of 10!

P. S. now I are anxious eager anticipation of the remake of the film with Jackie Chan, is released already very soon!..

- You really think I can beat this guy?
Not important. What good is it to teach that force with the fist. It is foolish to teach it. Won, lost, not important. You fought well. Earn respect.

the karate Kid

This film is the best in that for "sports dramas". I watched this movie approximately 99 th year. I was seven, but I looked seven half. The essence of my words in that after seeing this film for long after he was removed, he still became the movie of my childhood. I'm glad to say that the main movie of my childhood, but there is still cartoon lion King. The lad Simba says — "dad, come on, let's go home", and dad gets you understand? He does not. The most heartbreaking cartoon in history.

The film tells us about the villain for the name, Daniel. He just moved in to a new school, but from the first days starts to behave not just well. I went rude. Inciting wedges to the girl professional karate at the name, johnny and, of course take off my shoes, he namyali side. Your insane evil plan Daniel to throw not intend begins to learn karate from certain Mr. Miyagi, simultaneously continuing to steal the girl from johnny. Mr. Miyagi teaches Daniel strange and ridiculous karate, causing it to wash cars, paint fences and homes. All anything, but then you waiting for the tragic and heartbreaking ending.

All above, of course, a joke. I like to joke about what Daniel-San is angry and if karate, but johnny's a good guy. Someone funny, and some do not, well and right. Very nice Mr. Miyagi becomes Daniel, a sort of father and mentor to life. He teaches the tricks of karate instructed via life issues. Daniel not bad ridicule peers, but things like this happen to unfortunately, often. And now, Mr. Miyagi not going to give sneakers made a deal with Sensei Cobra-Kai (teacher johnny). It is to resolve a conflict, that would you guys clashed in a fair fight. The idea already inspiring. Personally, I'm touch, after all, to defend and to get a place in this world, you need to work hard and to fight. Life — an endless struggle. So and to be, well, the main thing is not be truhlar, and Daniel in the depths of the soul afraid. He scary then there one touching moment, because Mr. Miyagi, Ali, and the mother support it. Support — this warm and pleasant feeling inside. Hardly have something valuable between people.

Mr. Miyagi has a personal drama, but knowing it, you in a moment understand why it so filled to Daniel-San. Mr. Miyagi says — "learn the balance to keep the balance — this is important". Mr. Miyagi, as master Yoda in our world. "the Pain will feel they are" — thinks Mr. Miyagi. Amused that beat Miyagi so not taught Daniel, because he believes that the meaning of karate in other. Rather, in finding yourself and to be as peaceful. Karate — for that never to fight. "Fear gives you access to the dark side! Fear begets anger, anger begets hatred, hatred — a guarantee of suffering. I fear is strong in you feel.." — seriously, guys, the Hatch — of Iodine, and Daniel — Mr. Miyagi. He gives Daniel confidence, instruct on the right path.

From Cobra-Kai different approach. It students, like to war, like life — solid military action and merciless bloodletting. There still need to argue whose methods more efficient. Miyagi teaches peace and peace and Saxa Cobra-Kai teaches like here about to begin the grim massacre with the participation of ninjas and crazy samurai, and they nunchaku, shuriken and katana, but you have only your fists and you to help, buddy. "Get in line!" — screams Cobra. From his discipline, and as said Mikey — "Without discipline, not matter how you good — you're nothing." In the film is not only the confrontation between Daniel and johnny, the film is a confrontation between two philosophies. Sensei Cobra-Kai — dirty player. For him matter what the price was picked up in the victory. And what Chuck Norris refused to play Cobra-Kai? Would be a great contrast with Pat Morita.

I don't know what should happen to I fell out of love with this film. Each time Mr. Miyagi calls Daniel — Daniel-San, from inside me something ekaet. I love this movie guys I suggest you to watch it if suddenly some fantastic way you haven did not. You should be ashamed. And remake dear Jackie Chan — not bad, but no, not that. Sorry, Jackie, I gave you 11 MB Oscars, whether it is within my power, but "the karate Kid" 84, — taxis and it is undeniable.
