Ever wonder what it would look like to watch an entire film using only the rehearsal footage? Somehow all of the rehearsal footage for 1984's The Karate Kid has made it online, and it's been pieced together -- scene by scene -- in an attempt to recreate the entire movie. The result is this fantastic alternate version of The Karate Kid -- shot on budget cameras because that's what they used for the rehearsal stuff -- that almost looks like a bunch of folks got together and shot a "sweded" version of the film using original castmembers like Ralph Maccio, Pat Morita and all those Cobra Kai jerks.
So what you have are a few on-location scenes, and then others recreated inside warehouses or gymnasiums (with alternate -- and in some cases, foul-mouthed -- dialogue) prior to the real scenes on the real sets. If you're any kind of fan of the original, this here will definitely eat up some of your day.
