1. Why doesn't this site talk about KK III?

2. Reading some reviews about it, most people hate part III. Now when I was younger, I believe this was actually the first one I saw, and I still enjoy it the most. What is honestly so bad about it? Barnes is obviously a bad a$$.

KK III is an ok film, but its kinda like they'd thought...yeah lets make a KKIII, and they left the story til the last minute.

Its slow, the love interest really isnt even a proper love interest, and it just doesnt have the charm and pace of the first one or the scenery and character building of the second one....its just...well....a bit dull. I remember being really disappointed when I saw it, much like BTTFIII....to be fair by the time most films get to the third one, its all about cashing in on what was so good about the first one.

That's what I think anyway.

I prefer BTTF III to BTTF II...

Ok, so that answers question 2, but why doesn't this site discuss part III?

Earth Angel, gonna get you! [Wink] .

I think BTTF III was a neccessary sequel because part II left this huge loose-end. As you said about KK III though, it seemed half-baked and thrown together. There's some beautiful moments in it---kata at the beach, Daniel hugs Miyagi---but the villians were entirely too racist and the story thin (this guy's student loses a karate tournament, therefore no one will register at his class???)

As far as this site goes, what's there really to say about III? There's no new locations to discuss (aside from Miyagi's shop) and no real interesting anecdotes. One and two had all the locations, two had a bunch of hype because it was the first sequel. KK III kind of came and went and bombed and as pointed out, no one really liked it so I guess they felt no need to explore it.

I like KKIII but KKI is the best. I think that is why it is talked about more.
