Kevin is a Karate movie star, but he desires an education as well. His uncle is his agent & wants what's best for Kevin, but is a coward, when it comes to standing up against the director! What I like the most about this movie, is his visit to his teacher's house, where his teacher's daughter is excited to meet Kevin "Ninja Boy". It is life like and original! Nice music score, comical, and sometimes violent (in a funny way). Most should enjoy, except those that desire nudity (sorry none here). Notice: This is a rare movie, in that it is a sequel to another movie "Magic Kid", but is better than the original! In fact I disliked the original so much, I have no desire to comment on it!
Magic Kid II is the further adventures of the karate champion from
Michigan who is now a movie star. Retained from the original cast of
the first Magic Kid film are Ted Jan Roberts as the ninja boy and
Stephen Furst as his nice, but weak agent/uncle.
If you didn't see the first film young Mr. Roberts helped his uncle out of some sticky situations with gamblers and in the process got himself discovered as a new action hero star with his uncle as his agent.
But now he wants a normal life, Ninja Boy as Roberts's character is known as would like to go to school. In fact he needs to go to school as studio tutor Dana Barron says because he's woefully behind in his subjects. But slave driving producer Hugo Napier will do about anything to keep him working continuously.
Magic Kid II is actually better than the original mainly because the annoying character of the old sister of Roberts is dropped. Roberts was an appealing juvenile and Stephen Furst is funny in a bumbling Lou Costello sort of way. Note that David Morse, Howie Mandel, and William Daniels, Furst's co-stars from St. Elsewhere are in this as a favor to their colleague as his poker playing cronies. Ain't gambling how Furst's problems started.
Recommended for the younger juvenile crowd.
