Plot: Daniel accompanies his mentor to Okinawa who is off to see his dying father and confront his old rival, while Daniel inadvertently makes an enemy of his own. Runtime: 113 mins Release Date: 20 Jun 1986
As a huge fan of the Karate Kid trilogy, you'll have to excuse me while I give my first sentimental statement ever on IMDb. I believe in my heart that in that parallel universe where our favorite characters from film still live, that Kumiko and Daniel would be together today. Either Daniel would have gone to Okinawa to be with Kumiko or Kumiko would have come to the States to be with Daniel. Of course, we learn in Karate Kid Part III that Kumiko decided not to go with Daniel back to California. But in my mind, this is insignificant and has no negative implication for their future. Sure, <more>
they both would have had relationships with other people. But having been through what they experienced together, they would not soon forget the bond between them. You wouldn't forget someone that saved your life? Compared to Ali from Part I and Jessica from Part III, it is more than apparent that Kumiko was the love of Daniel's life. Whether it be two years or ten years after the end of Part III, Kumiko and Daniel would have eventually reconnected and continued to live their lives together. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go crush a beer can on my forehead to reconnect with my masculine side.
Lessons in life not a brainless kick-ass movie (by redpenphantom)
I am sorry to disagree with the comments of "drlawyer" since it only reflects the urge to see fight scenes. Karate kid 2 is a perfect sequel and shows the spiritual side of martial arts. Why measure a sequel with the 1st movie at all? Both, Karate kid1 and Karate kid2 are unique and have complete story lines. Even for those who only saw the second movie, there is no gap due to the main flashbacks presented in the beginning of it. The acting is excellent and has no need for quick chopped up editing like now-a-days movies do. The grief and emotions connect with the viewer. I saw <more>
both movies about 20 times and could see them 20 times again.
A good lesson in the art of filmmaking. 10/10 (by francisco533)
With all the hype from the first one, expectations were high for "The Karate Kid Part II" but in the end the movie passed the test. It is very well written and the theme structure is perfect, giving the audience not only the ingredients from the first one but some new interesting additions as well, specially regarding Mr. Miyagi's past. The cinematography is beautiful with lavishing landscapes, vibrant colors and splendid frameworks. All of this accompanied by Bill Conti's beautiful music.Watching it is like having a good lesson in the art of filmmaking. This movie shows how <more>
to tell a story, how to develop characters and their motivations, how to compose a scene just pause at anytime and you'll see a painting . The actors are really convincing and there's a lot of chemistry between them but that has already been established in the first one.All in all, a wonderful movie and a sequel that stands as good as the first.
One would have thought that no movie with a title like "The Karate Kid Part II" could possibly be any good. One would have good reason to think this. One would be wrong.This is a loser-gets-the-girl 1980s teen movie. It is the best of its kind. Even the original, I think, wasn't bad, although it's starting to show its age; the third movie was pure drivel; but this one bears repeated watching very well indeed, and I would recommend it even to people who despise, or think that they despise, the genre it belongs to. Why is it so good? I have no idea. Pure luck, I suppose. <more>
Changing the setting to Japan certainly helped. Most teen movies are earthbound by their attempts to be hip and modern and can be dated to within a year. This one was allowed to be timeless.I admit that "The Karate Kid Part II" will never be *regarded* as a classic, partly because so many people think that a movie with that kind of title cannot possibly be any good. And they have good reason to think this. But they're wrong.
The best of the 3 - Maybe some spoilers (by tagkeyon)
I really think this is the best movie of all three. Most of my friends who went to see the movie didn't like it or thought it was too weird. KK2 presents to us a darker, more gritty Karate Kid story in which the primary focus is not really Daniel but Miyagi. The scenery, although not really Okinawan Hawaii is compelling as are the characters. Chosen comes off as a bit more threatening than Johnny in the first installment and the interaction between Miyagi and Daniel does not disappoint. My only gripe is WHY ON EARTH DOES THE LOVE STORY BETWEEN DANIEL AND KUMIKO NOT EXTEND TO THE THIRD <more>
MOVIE??!!!!!!! Of course this fact does not really have as much to do with the second movie as the third I really considered it a letdown that she didn't appear in part 3 and the gal that was there was primarily filler and added nothing to the plot or character development. By the time the 3rd movie was released I began to have serious thoughts that Daniel might in fact be gay. Anyway for me the Daniel/Kumiko relationship was what made the second film. Also the love theme "Glory of Love" sung by Peter Cetera Formerly of Chicago was electric against the backdrop of the evolving love story between Kumiko and Daniel. Elizabeth Shue was realistic but not compelling and really there wasn't much energy between her and Machio in the first. The fight scene between Daniel and Chosen at the end was pretty brutal. This is one movie I can never watch enough and reminds me of that special time in my youth when it seemed that anything was possible.
Continuing the theme of right and wrong, this sequel has little to do with the first film apart from continuing the story of Daniel and Mr Miyagi, but what this sequel compared to many others does, is get it right.Abandoning the 80's culture and the don't judge a book by it's cover of the first film, this film focuses on the culture of japan, and covers it well.it is the story of once friends become enemies and later become friends , and the reason for the hatred of Mr Miyagi unlike so many films is a plausible and reasonable one.the acting is on point and the way the characters <more>
play of each-other is brilliant, and the lesson from the beginning of the film is remembered in it's climax in a very unforced way.not as good as the original, but almost as, a great sequel to watch and would have been a great end for the story of the two main characters.
They should have ended the Kid chronicles with this one (by Thornfield2)
The Karate Kid part II should have been the end of the Karate Kid Story. It was an excellent film and the story was a perfect conclusion to the Daniel/Myagi friendship. The heroine Kumiko was perfect for Daniel and in my imagination he stays with her and Myagi stays with his love from childhood and then both of them bring their ladies to the states. KK III was awful and the Next Karate Kid was just idiotic. These lame sequels don't come close to this installment which should have been the last or at least, if a third installment was going to be done, it could of had the couples form the <more>
KKII and their new lives back in the states. I love Karate Kid stories and in my imagination the story ends with this wonderful sequel
Daniel Larusso is back this time in Okinawa, Japan to visit Mr. Miyagi's home village, but upon arrival they discover it's being overrun by his old nemesis and his construction company. The climatic fight scene in the vintage karate ring was about as good as a sequel can get and wasn't relying on the first film for material. If you liked the first "KARATE KID", this one is almost as good, but please; do not see the 3rd sequel, it is Macchio's worst film ever.
Not as good as the original, but a good film nonetheless (by drlawyer)
Sequels are often measured against the originals, but as it is well known, fail to measure up the notable exception being "Star Wars Episode IV: The Empire Strikes Back - the exception that proves the rule . Too often, the sequel lacks the "newness" of the original - the characters are often completely developed, the underdog has already triumphed. In other words, the story has already been completed.In this second installment, we see how, to some degree, to overcome that. Of course, the challenge has to be taken up a notch a fight to the death? Yeah, that's a little <more>
better than a tournament and we usually delve deeper into the characters. Seeing Mr. Miagui cope with demons from his past helps to better completely define his character; Machio's Daniel Laruso is sadly left second stage, as all he seems to learn is that his famous "stork-kick" obviously hasn't been perfected after all.Personally, I feel as though KKI and KKII told both halves of the story nicely, and could have done without installments three and four. However, KKII fills the void nicely for those who saw, and loved, The Karate Kid and wanted nothing more than to see that pseudo-nazi military sensei get humiliated.
