(1984) High school student (Ralph Macchio) learns about life, friendship and the martial arts from a kindly Japanese-American gardener (Pat Morita) who shows him how to deal with the bullies tormenting him. Directed by John G. Avildsen, the movie is made extremely appealing by the performances of the two principals despite its message that violence solves all ills. Parents should be sure that their youngsters realize karate is considerably more lethal than depicted here. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG -- parental guidance suggested) AMC (cable)
