sorry for the mistakes!
Cobra Kai - Second season
Just a small change to avoid that the shot is identical to the previous
one and knocks the viewer more for of boredom than out of strength. In
short, "Cobra Kai" slightly moves the point of view of a story, which,
in fact, was at high risk of being repetitive. Because let's face it,
besides the rivalry of the two karate forerunner, what else is there to
say? Little, very little, children and disciples aside, who in any case
are not this great news,
So, even if Lawrence and LaRusso are always them, there is a greater
balance in the narrative with the problems and the desire for revenge
of the two who travel in parallel, at a safe distance, but who
occasionally touch each other and a couple of occasions ( the most
interesting and sometimes comical) overlap. There is also a further
smoothing of the negative aspects of the two, who continue to hate each
other with respect, trying to take their Dojo as high as possible. On
the one hand the always unleashed Cobra Kai, with Lawrence who wants to
win but respecting the opponent and on the other Miyagi Dojo, more
philosophical in his Zen garden and in the house that belonged to the
well-known master, complete with a vintage car that also saw in the
If the two have lost some negative aspects, one would think that there
is no longer a villain. But no. With a stratagem worthy of a B movie or
a soap opera, here comes Kreese, the bad Sensei of the film, and
founder of the Cobra Kai, who slowly steals the students from Johnny
imposing his violent vision.
All this exacerbates the tension between the students. A rivalry
unleashed exclusively by adults, ready to ruin the world, which leads
children to hate former friends and to commit acts of vandalism. Not
only that, there are also amorous rivalries, with Samantha (Danny's
daughter) who falls in love with Johnny's son who now lives in their
house, unleashing the jealousy of the former boyfriend, that is Miguel,
the best athlete of Cobra Kai and of the new violent girlfriend of the
Honorable mention for the second son of the LaRusso, who appears in
only one scene saying that he was at the campsite, probably in the
company of Chuck Cunningham with whom he shares the exit and the
uselessness of the character.
Returning to the main story, everything sublimates into a delicious
80's tacky scene, a masquerade party that recalls in all respects the
atmosphere of “La Boum”. A party in a private house with
the two groups in comparison is also not bad.
If affairs of the heart reach a peak in these two moments, the violent
side reaches its top in a huge brawl on the first day of school. Scenes
that are reminiscent of both teen movies and Bruce Lee's films and that
end in a truly, truly trashy way.
"Cobra Kai", number two, manages to entertain the viewer, using the
usual eighties TV ways, with many references to the film (there is also
a gathering of former Cobra Kai students, which only serves to make
something happen important) and more irony.
The third series, which will be released in 2021, seems to welcome
another great return: that of Alli (Elizabeth Sue), Danny's beloved and
Johnny's former girlfriend. Strong stuff for the two on which there is
the shadow of the very bad Kreese.
