Did You Know?

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

During the storm scene, after Sato is saved by Miyagi and Daniel, and Chozen stayed inside the shelter, Chozen says to Sato that he thought Sato was dead. When Sato tells Chozen to go help Daniel and he refuses, Sato tells him "Now, to you, I am dead". However, during the Castle scene, when Sato tries to get Chozen to calm down, Chozen tells him that he cannot hear him because "I am dead to you, remember?". It's a clear mistake and the script was trying to say instead "You are dead to me". Since Sato is dead to Chozen, Chozen cannot hear him. It doesn't even make sense the other way around. See more »

Our likable friends, Daniel and Miyagi , travelling to island of Okinawa
30 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

The film starts where the first picture finished with the famous karate combat, proceeded by flashbacks. There John Kreese(Martin Kove) receives a strong lesson .Later the teenage Daniel(Ralph Macchio) along with Miyagi(Noriyuki, Pat Morita) travel to Okinawa, but his father is dying . There Miyagi confronts an old enemy . Meanwhile Daniel falls in love with Kamiko(Talyn Tomita) and also gets enemies.

This enjoyable following displays action, love story, Japanese dances, fights and is pretty entertaining. Again the movie develops a feeling and agreeable friendship between Daniel and professor Miyagi. Liking and perceptible performances by Macchio, Morita and Tamlyn Tomita. Besides appear as very secondaries and uncredited future TV stars, as B.D. Wong(Law and order) and Clarence Gilyard(Walker Texas Ranger). Colorful cinematography by James Crabe and powerful musical score by Bill Conti, usual of trilogy. The motion picture is professionally directed by John G Avildsen(also editor). Avildsen has blended more Karate Kid and Rocky movies with such feel-good message stories, such as 'Power on one' and 'Lean on me'. It's followed by another sequels, 'Karate kid III (1989)'where Daniel again fighting his usual contenders; and 'The next Karate Kid'(1994)' directed by Christopher Cain, introducing a new Karate kid, girl, the two times Oscarized Hilary Swank. Rating: Good, the tale will like to trilogy buffs and intimate characters fans.
