Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
The price of honor. The power of friendship. The Karate Kid, Part II. Ralph Macchio and Noriyuki "Pat" Morita re-create the roles that brought them international acclaim in The Karate Kid. Karate student, Daniel Larusso (Macchio), accompanies his wise and whimsical teacher, Mr. Miyagi (Morita), to his ancestral home in Okinawa. For the boy, it's a journey to an exotic new world offering new clues to his mentor's secret past. For Miyagi, it's an opportunity to see his father one last time and to rekindle a romance with his childhood sweetheart (Nobu McCarthy). But Miyagi's return also re-ignites a bitter feud with long-time enemy, Sato (Danny Kamekona) - a feud that involves young Daniel in a brilliant collision of cultures and combat. Now, far away from the tournaments, the cheering crowds and the safety of home, Daniel will face his greatest challenge ever when teacher becomes student and the price of honor is life itself.

original set the stage for the characters and is well done.however,the
sequel is better than the original for one main reason,a better
villain.this time Daniel is forced to fight for his
life(literally)against a much more skilled opponent than he faced in
the original.there is much more tension in this movie and more scenes
of peril.the violence is more vivid and graphic.The setting is much
more exotic,this time Okinawa being where most of the story takes
place.so,visually we have a much more picturesque movie to look
at.also,we see some of the culture of the people of Okinawa(accurate or
not,i'm not sure).there is also more happening in this film.we have a
subplot involving Mr.Myagi and a choice he must make.so,the story is
more developed,the location is nicer,and the villain is better written
than the 1st.and of course Mr. Myagi continues to teach Wisdom to
Daniel as well as the Okinawan Village.when you add it all up,this
makes for a better movie.but parents should be warned,again,that there
are more graphic violence and sequences of peril in this one.use your
rarely are. Karate Kid II is very enjoyable. Some think
that part II and III should have been switched around, and
I agree with that. I think this would have been a better
end to the series, with a few minor changes maybe.
Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita give great performances
once again. Daniel and Miyagi are awesome characters. I
think it's cool how they were able to make a series
where two people so far apart in age are such great friends.
Anyway, in Karate Kid II, Daniel san and Miyagi go to Okinawa
after Miyagi gets word that his father has become very ill.
To make matters worse, Miyagi has a problem with Sato, his
former best friend. Really, Sato has a problem with Miyagi,
over an old girlfriend. Daniel ends up having a problem of his
own with Sato's nephew, Chozen. I can't recall the guy's name
that played Chozen, but I think he was awesome! Why didn't
he receive more roles?? It's a mystery to me. The last fight
could have been better, but it works. Great movie.
The acting was good enough for this type of movie. Some people wanted the classic american sequel were everything is just a contiuation of the first but the movie mimics real life. Girlfriends come and go and as Miyagi and daniel get closer they learn more about each other, what with Certain Asian cultures being a little withdrawn when it comes to showing emotion it is easily understandable why miyagi didnt mention his past life.
But if you go in expecting a ben hur then you obviously didnt do your research and of course you will be dissapointed. As a martial artist for over a decade i feel the movie did the best they could in two hours to show what would take years of understanding.
It is almost impossible to represent the martial arts on film without being boring or fake . I love jet li , jackie chan , yuen wo ping and others but even bruce lee stated that the fighting he did on screen was not what he would do in real life .
I think this movie hits the major aspects of martial arts training. Keeping your values under pressure, standing up for yourself and continual self improvement and if its a little cheesy ..... hey it was the eighties.
