There are just a few days until the return of Daniel Larusso and Johnny Lawrance to the small screen, but will their new episodes be as exciting as the previous ones? Apparently yes, since this Monday, December 28, the first reviews of the third season of ‘Cobra Kai’ have been published.
The Rotten Tomatoes portal, which brings together the reviews of film and television specialists, published that part three of the Netflix series was not only liked by 18 renowned critics but also achieved a 100% approval rating, which it had achieved only in its first season.
Opinions, in general, agree that the new chapters will continue with the development of the characters giving it greater complexity, in addition to having some twists in the plot that will surprise the audience, all this combined with humor and a touch of nostalgia for the original saga from ‘Karate Kid.’
“A high-energy showdown for the rebellious youth, coupled with an ever-sensitive portrait of middle-aged reminiscence. It reaffirms Cobra Kai as one of the smartest reboots in our era of nostalgia binges,” wrote Darren Franich of Entertainment Weekly.
“Season 3 hits you with enough laughs and outrageous twists to keep you coming back to its televised dojo, no matter how often it freaks out,” AV Club’s Alex McLevy wrote.
“In an era of reboots and sequels, Cobra Kai continues to argue that there are still ways to recycle 40-year-old characters and stories and make them feel fresh, timely and necessary,” opined Rafael Motamayor of Slashfilm.
“Cobra Kai Season 3 manages to pull off the complicated feat of expanding the world of the franchise and delving into the various backstories and personal dynamics of its characters, while also delivering some top-notch martial arts fights. “, Sam Stone CBR.
To see if ‘Cobra Kai 3’ will be entertaining and emotional, we will have to wait until its premiere, which will be on January 1, 2021, through Netflix.
