Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [It] may be the silliest episode yet in the popular Karate Kid series. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2014

Rotten: Not that girls will go see this or boys will care. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, May 22, 2013

Rotten: The franchise is still kicking -- but not very high. – Lisa Nesselson, Variety, May 22, 2013

Rotten: The overt message of any Karate Kid movie: Don't fight unless you absolutely have to. The implicit message: You'll always have to. Let the smitings begin! – Chris Willman, Los Angeles Times, Jul 16, 2014

If You Liked The Other Movies, Do Not By This Movie!!!!!

This Movie Was A Stupid Idea To Begin With. Why Would Anybody Try And Make A Sequel To The Other Movies Using Such A Horrible Story And By Hiring A New Director!!. This Movie Was So Cheezy From Beginning To End And There Were Some Pretty Bad Actors In It As Well. Don't Waste Your Time Buying This Movie Hoping That It Will Be Like The Other Movies Only Because Of The Fact That Pat Morita Is Still In It. It Is Nothing Like The Other Ones.

It was a great movie!

I really liked this movie. It was a nice change from the original and a nice story line.

The new one better be better!!!!

Just by the preview it looks bad
