Julie Pierce is the main "protagonist" of the critically panned 1994 film The Next Karate Kid.

Why She Sucks

  1. Julie is nothing more than just a female version of Daniel LaRusso (The main protagonist from the first three Karate Kid films.) only with anger issues, making her pointless.
  2. The way she defeated her rival Ned was rather cheesy and predictable: Julie used literally just ONE kick to defeat Ned, not only that she had trouble fighting Ned, but she predictably defeats Ned out of nowhere with just ONE kick.
  3. She has some questionable logic that doesn't make any sense.
    • She beats Ned with lack of training which is weird considering that Ned had been in Alpha Elite a lot longer than Julie was in Miyagi Do.
    • At one scene she jumped over a pizza truck with no training at that point, this makes no sense since she wasn't trained by Mr. Miyagi yet.
  4. She's extremely rude to almost everyone she meets all because of her anger issues.
    • She's extremely rude to her grandmother Louisa Pierce at one scene.
    • She's also rude to Mr. Miyagi even when she first met him, she judges Mr. Miyagi's teaching from Miyagi-Do and when Mr. Miyagi congrats her for doing a kick correctly, she asks for a belt instead, YOU CAN'T GET BELTS FOR JUST ONE PERFECT KICK!!
    • Sometimes she's even rude to her boyfriend Eric McGowen!
  5. Speaking of Eric McGowen, Julie's relationship with Eric is just forced, bland, and dull.
  6. No character development what so ever, except at the end of the film.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. As previously mentioned in WSS #6 Julie's behavior improves throughout the film where she ends up becoming a bit more likable.
