THE KARATE KID PART II (Theatrical Release USA 1986)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.3|5.0 Starsììì

The Karate Kid Part II is an ‘afternoon on the beach while eating lunch’ watch. This film takes its audience to Okinawa for an enjoyable trip through modern Japanese culture, societal mores, and cultural views on duty, forgiveness, and love. If you liked the first Karate Kid, you’ll like the sequel.


Miyagi (Pat Morita) goes to Okinawa and Daniel (Ralph Macchio) accompanies him.
