Goofs

When the young Air Force man is giving Mr Miyagi and Daniel directions to his village in Okinawa, he asks the "Sarge" where it is. The sergeant then replies, "You are standing on it corporal." There are no corporals in the Air Force, and his rank was actually an Airman First Class (E-3) with two stripes. The correct response from the sergeant should have been, "You are standing on it airman." See more »

Underrated!
22 September 2019 | by louieshowersSee all my reviews

The first two karate kid movies are masterpieces. This movie offers a view at cultural appreciation, bullying and morals. Stereotypes aside, this movie is timeless.
