What If Daniel Was Actually The Bully In The Karate Kid?

The Karate Kid seems like a straightforward feel good movie about an underdog overcoming obstacles, an uplifting story meant to inspire kids to never give up and, when in doubt, let loose with a crane kick.

But one fan theory shows that Daniel LaRusso may not have been the victim at all, and audiences may owe Johnny Lawrence a big apology.

Director and film editor J. Matthew Turner analyzed The Karate Kid and found Danny's behavior less heroic and more like a kid doing the bidding of the demon sorcerer Miyagi.
