Trivia

The opening scenes (Daniel in the shower, and the confrontation in the parking lot with Kreese) were in the script for The Karate Kid (1984) but contrary to urban legend never filmed. They were shot specifically for The Karate Kid, Part II (1986). See more »

Goofs

After they left the air base, it was daytime. They drove over a small bridge, and in the next shot, they were on the other side of the same bridge but it was then much darker out as if they had been driving for a while. See more »

Wonderful childhood memories
16 June 2003 | by (Liverpool, New York) – See all my reviews

I can't tell you how good it made me feel to recapture the joy I first experienced in the theater. I was 12 years old when this came out. The story and plot are simple, and the lessons are very clear. They definitely don't make films like this nowadays. Memories of me sitting in the theater alongside my grandmother, eating loads of buttery popcorn, and telling her about all the good scenes (she couldn't see well)

I have seen this movie over 200 times, and never get tired of it. I recommend viewing both The Karate Kid, and the sequel to at least get the full effect.

Awesome 80's flick, and one I'm proud to own. Five stars.
