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.
Lower key sequel… Story develops but not as impacting
The original is something special, and I have revisited the original trilogy after 30 years, and enjoyed reviewing them. However as much as still kind of enjoyed this sequel, it hasn’t aged well with me.
When I first watched this as a kid in the cinema, I loved it, and fell for its charm & beauty, and followed the continuing story of Mr Miyagi & Daniel. The pair go to Okinawa (Japan), and end up rekindling a feud involving a childhood friend of Mr Miyagi.
The main change from the first film, apart from the setting, is the focus on Mr Miyagi. We see his childhood home and what inspired his philosophy, something that his mentor learns from. When Mr Miyagi’s father dies, it is actually Daniel who gives a shoulder to lean on for his friend & surrogate father this time.
However, despite the parallels, and the beauty from the settings etc, it just doesn’t all come together. The two leads are excellent, and you love their developing father/surrogate son relationship, but the rest of the cast are weak. Watching the cast speak wholly in broken English is a big galling (what’s wrong with just allowing subtitles), and the villains are two dimensional.
The love interest for Daniel is good but her lines & acting were a bit weak, but their relationship was convincing. Shame they couldn’t develop it into the third film.
I was disappointed to see that I couldn’t enjoy this as much now as when a youngster, but maybe that says something. Maybe I’ve too much experience now to enjoy it, but the first film still holds very well.
I love Mr Miyagi, the greatest mentor in film history, and the man we all wish was our mentor, friend & second father. For that alone, this film is worth watching again. Pat Morita created one of the greatest on-screen characters, and to him thank you. I can never explain fully the impact Mr Miyagi had on the lives of a certain generation. Thank you.
