Critic Reviews of "The Karate Kid, Part 3"Philadelphia InquirerJuly 15, 2014
The Karate Kid Part III is a brave but misguided attempt to restate the lesson through a narrative ploy that nearly always works, but here produces no more than recycling.Los Angeles TimesJuly 15, 2014
Part III, however, is not merely a disaster of the most uninspired contrivances but is actually unsuitable for youngsters, the series' natural audience.Chicago TribuneJuly 15, 2014
About all that enlivens The Karate Kid Part III is a screamingly over-the-top performance by Thomas Ian Griffith, who plays a toxic waste magnate and karate buff who hatches a madly complex plot to humiliate Daniel and his teacher.Chicago ReaderJune 09, 2010
The pattern has so calcified that Gene Autry westerns seem like models of moral complexity by comparison.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
The makers of The Karate Kid Part III -- also responsible for its successful predecessors -- have either delivered or taken a few too many kicks to the head along the way.Time OutJune 24, 2006
After suffering endless abuse, Daniel wins with just a few well placed whacks: those expecting standard wish-fulfilment fantasy will be disappointed that (in tune with the philosophy, of course) he didn't give the punk a pasting.Radio TimesJuly 15, 2014
The script takes leave of reality at an early stage, and it all becomes increasingly daft and humourless with each scene.South Florida Sun-SentinelJuly 15, 2014
A rather vicious melodrama and morality play that will bore most kids silly.Empire MagazineJuly 15, 2014
Morita still charms, Macchio still tightropes between petulence and raw optimism, whilst the fight scenes are competent enough to offset the woeful romantic sub-plotting.TV GuideJuly 15, 2014
Griffith's over-the-top toxic-waste king [is] an unbelievably sadistic type who enjoys tilting his head back to laugh maniacally every three minutes or so, and who is one of few signs of life in this brain-dead movie.Tulsa WorldJuly 15, 2014
The Karate Kid Part III is a slickly produced adventure of the most simple-minded kind.Philadelphia Daily NewsJuly 15, 2014
Karate Kid III has emerged as the front runner for the worst sequel of the summer.
