When Silver introduces himself to Daniel and Miyagi, he mentions that the 442nd boasted more Congressional Medal of Honor-recipients than all of World War 2 put together. Since the 442nd *was* the Second World War, he probably meant to say World War 1. See more »
While this film went back to the more casual appeal of the first film, it proved to be a bit of a rehashing of the first. The only difference, we see Daniel take on the `dark side' (a.k.a. not Mr. Myagi's way) of fighting. Sure, this had to be a little different, but Daniel trying to be a tough guy seemed a little off in a way. Sure, this film was entertaining, but it proved the series was running on empty. However, Mr. Myagi proved he could still kick plenty of butt, making the ending all worth it.
