Cast and crew

  • Ralph Macchio
  • Pat Morita
  • Elisabeth Shue
After relocating to a small apartment complex with his single mom, young boy Daniel LaRusso finds himself in the position of the outsider looking in.

The popular guys are rich, take karate seriously and don't shy away from bullying Daniel at any chance they get. So when his apartment's super, Mr Miyagi, agrees to teach Daniel martial arts, the boy embarks on a journey that will last a lifetime.

A highly enjoyable coming-of-age drama, the main appeal of The Karate Kid is the wonderful relationship that develops between Daniel and his mentor. It's a movie that has aged incredibly well, so you can't go wrong with giving it a stream.

Once done, you might want to check out the sequels and the ongoing Cobra Kai series, which is currently available on Netflix.
