A good movie that doesn't quite reach the right mix of the original. Absolutely beautiful Okinawan scenery.

After hearing how shit this movie supposedly was I was pleasantly surprised by it being pretty good. While not as great or iconic as the first, it's a fine sequel that manages to tell a decent story that isn't just a rehash of the original movie, not to mention it gives more depth to Miyagi's character. And for what it's worth, the romantic subplot of this film was developed better than the last, but that's hardly saying much. It's about as good as one would expect from a Karate Kid sequel.

This was a very good sequel to a classic movie. Mr Miyagi and Daniel are such likable characters you can't help but root for them. Sure, this movie has a bit of a darker tone to it, but it is still very fun to watch as Daniel tries acclimate to the culture and the people of Okinawa. Mister Miyagi becomes even more likable in this movie and the emotion that was shown was excellent as well, especially during the death of his father. Haven't seen the third one, just hoping it is decent though.

There's, like, one really cool scene with Miyagi and Daniel-san where Daniel talks about his dad, but the rest is just dumb. Tamlyn Tomita's a babe though!

The nose honk scene is the only good thing about this movie. As much as the racism in the first movie can be mistaken for cultural appreciation and tribute to japanese culture, the white savior complex of part II, the way japanese people are portrayed, the fetishization of the female lead, and the lack of a compelling narrative make for an absolutely awful movie. Usually I can figure out why people enjoy movies I didn't like, but in this case I'm stumped as to why many people like this sequel.

Same song, second verse functions as pleasant enough diversion; Avildsen proves his reputation as master sadist of withholding the pleasure of an underdog follow-through, with the resolutions of Daniel and Miyagi’s conflicts rendered anti-climactic; an opportunity missed to mirror and reflect our heroes’ conflicts instead of awkwardly resolving them separately robs the finale of a more emotional punch. Macchio and Morita do their best; 5 extra points for Peter Cetera’s gloriously cheesy anthem!

It looks cheaper, the music is worse, the villains are terrible, and the "side step" is the most underwhelming martial arts "special move" ever being shown in a film. The romance has zero chemistry and is so awkward, I broke into cold sweat during the tea ceremony scene... Awkward and silly "double ending" after the main conflict is already resolved. Worse than Part I in all ways, and the ice-breaking contest was the only cool (ha) scene.

Part II abandons a lot of what made the first part so great. I understand it's a way to expand upon the characters we grew to love in the first Karate Kid, but a part of me feels this story would be better as a standalone film with different characters.

Nowhere near the first, although it retains some of that basic charm thanks to the leads. But it says a lot that the best scene is the first one, the one that leads right off the previous film and the only one with ALL the classic characters.

KK2 is a crappy sequel to a crappy movie. I took a bluray release as an excuse to re-watch these childhood movies, but frankly, I just ruined pleasant memories. Story is pretty much the same as the first movie (romance side story, training, overcoming strong enemy and learning timeless wisdom of life), except this time, people can actually die! SPOILER: No one dies. Soundtrack of 80's ballads is the hardest thing to endure.

The 2 leads again give good performances in this sequel. The script has several good moments but this movie could have used a lot more karate scenes. Overall I would recommend this one if you enjoyed the first in the series.

This movie exists almost entirely on the audience's affection for these characters from the first movie. Most of the new characters or stories fail to live up to their predecessors, but it's alright for fans.

good: same main actors from part I, in color ; - bad: almost everything else, it's amazing how much derivative this movie is after the great part I which is a classic, acting by everyone is so much worse, villain are so over the top with no depth, everything is so cheezy, chemistry between Japanese girl and Larusso is lacking, chemistry between Miyagi and old girlfriend is lacking, unbelievable plot points (grudge, unmarried old girlfriend, change in heart of Sato), cinematography like TV show

I must've taped over the recording of this as a kid cos I only ever remember seeing it a couple of times before. A typical sequel of its era, with virtually the same story played out again (except this time in Okinawa, with a bit of Japanese culture). We spend more time with Miyagi, Macchio puts in another decent shift, and the baddies draw even more boos than in the original, but it never rises above merely okay. The climax to the final fight is pretty lame too. An unnecessary film.

This second film isn't too bad - I especially liked the villain of the film, who - even though he HATES Mr. Miagi - he respects him and holds honor as incredibly important. I honestly think this movie should have been called The Karate Sensei. Biased Score: 82% | Unbiased Score: 70% | Predicted Score: 63%

Was Daniel-san even in this movie? This should have been called, "Mr. Miyagi, Part I". Look, Miyagi's profile positively dwarves Daniel-san's in the accompanying picture. The fact is, the story just was not very interesting and the Cobra Kai is SORELY missed.

Not sure why people dislike it so much... A decent family movie. Not a lot of karate and the little there is is quite bad, but the story is like-able and I don't love Mr Miyagi any less :)
