John G. Avildsen rehashes his shopworn formula for another go-round in The Karate Kid Part III. Going against the wishes of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi (Noriyuki "Pat" Morita), Daniel (Ralph Macchio) will defend his karate title in an All-Valley Championship match arranged by his nemesis Kreese (Martin Kove), whose karate studio folded after his star student lost the championship to Daniel. Kreese's friend, Vietnam veteran and toxic waste dumper Terry (Thomas Ian Griffith), agrees to help his old pal

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The pattern has so calcified that Gene Autry westerns seem like models of moral complexity by comparison.
The unevenness of The Karate Kid movies reaches its peak in The Karate Kid Part III...
A performance from Macchio so irritating that the goodwill left over from the The Karate Kid is gone in a finger-snap.
A bit of an improvement over the second installment, but so what?
From hero to punk in 2 hours.
This is one karate chop too many...master Morita and student Macchio should have stopped before overstaying their welcome in this tepid follow-up
The series finally runs out of steam
