Karate Kid Blu-ray DiscWith the re-make of Karate Kid due for release in cinemas across Europe, why not pay homage to the original 80’s classic on Blu-ray Disc?

Aside from enjoying a high-def transfer of the movie itself and nostalgically quoting, “wax on, wax off”, this Blu-ray Disc comes with a generous helping of special features to keep viewers entertained.

First up is a three-part documentary, packed full of recent interviews with the cast, including stars Ralph Macchio and the late Pat Morita. This provides great insight into the making of the film, highlighting the decisions that helped it to garner an Oscar-nomination for Best Supporting Actor.  A featurette entitled ‘Beyond the Form’ is also included which explains the karate training the cast undertook to prepare for the film.  And finally, to acknowledge its memorable score, ‘East Meets West’ puts the spotlight on composer Tom Conti, who explains the writing process he went through to produce the soundtrack.

For more details, Den of Geek has a full review.
