This is the only film in the series in which Mr. Miyagi does not appear in the final frame of the movie before the credits begin. However, he does appear in the last frame of the scene that transitions into the scene the credits play over. See more »
Miyagi tells Julie that her grandfather saved his life and in return he taught him Karate, however in The Karate Kid, Miyagi tells Daniel that he has never taught Karate to anyone before. See more »
Personally i have seen this movie about half a dozen times.I think it is great.Do not get me wrong,in my humble opinion the original karate kid(1984)with Ralph Macchio was better but Hilary Swank gets the job done nevertheless.An exciting story,a lot of action,a little bit of drama and sentimentality when it was required and exceptional acting;What is not to love?All that hate does not make any sense.Someone who liked the first movie should like this one too and even if you were not a big fan of the first movie you absolutely have to give it a try.Mr Miyagki for once more turns out to be an excellent teacher that every (karate)kid would want to have.
This is a must see and it goes in my personal top 25 movies.
