It's a worthy companion to the original underdog drama and the logical end to Daniel and Miyagi's story arc.

Too calculated and manipulative, this is a disappointing sequel to the 1984 picture.

About on the same level as its watchable yet uneven predecessor...

There's a TV-movie quality to The Karate Kid Part II, which too often plays like "a very special episode"...[Blu-ray]

It's a touch on the artificial side, but the sentiment still warms wonderfully, making Part II a lovely continuation, skillfully burning off the happy fumes left behind in 1984.

The first chinks in the armour start appearing once you can't even honour your own lore.

Somehow the magic of the first movie is just gone. Is it the absence of Elisabeth Shue? Yes. Probably.
