Why watch this film?
The decline in quality of the 'Karate Kid' saga was pronounced with its second sequel. After its predecessor tried something relatively new, 'The Karate Kid Part III' puts the characters back in California, once again against Cobra Kai with the goal of facing them in a tournament. With a vaguely developed romance subplot and a bit more violence, the movie ended up being very repetitive and marked the end of the franchise with Ralph Macchio in command (at least until the premiere of the YouTube Red spin-off series 'Cobra Kai' almost three decades later).
Ostracised villain John Kreese attempts to gain revenge on Daniel and Miyagi, with the help of a Vietnam War comrade, the wealthy owner of a toxic waste disposal business.
