The Top 100 Inspirational Movies: 20 - 11
11 - The Karate Kid
The Karate Kid was released the same year I was born –
1984. I, much like the main character
Daniel Son, had the unfortunate experience of being bullied when I was
younger. For those reasons I have always
had a strong connection to The Karate Kid.
It might also have something to do with karate being awesome. Underdog sports movies are a dime a dozen,
but few have characters as memorable as Mr. Miyagi and a villain as cruel as
the Cobra Kai. I must admit that when
I’m feeling down, watching the end of The Karate Kid always cheers me up and
makes me feel like I’m “the best around!”
