Let it be known that The Karate Kid is one of my absolute favourite movies of all time. An instantly likable flick, it has a great cast, a story suitable for all ages, and one of the best relationships in movie history; not just between the the two main characters, but between the viewer and the film, too.

100 Great 'Fun' 80s Movies (100 movies items)

"John G. Avildsen, who directed the multi-award winning 'Rocky', went on the direct the 80s teen equivalent with the wonderful 'The Karate Kid', a brilliant underdog-comes-good story which employs a similar narrative build via inspiring montages. Ralph Macchio, fresh from his success in Francis Ford Coppola's 'The Outsiders', is Daniel LaRusso, a high school senior who moves with his mother to a Los Angeles neighbourhood where he falls victim to a gang of bullies. Befriended by apartment handyman"
