Everyone has been belly-aching that no one should have touched the classic "The Karate Kid", mostly out of fear that it won't do the original justice. I think I'm in the minority of folks in my age-group who disagree. Still, what isn't there to love about the original. EVERYONE loved Ralph Macchio's portrayal of Daniel Larusso, and his coming of age. I hate that he hasn't worked much since his original rise to prominensce, but I'm glad that he can still laugh at himself. That being said, enjoy!
