The Karate Kid Part II

Factual error: After Miyagi and the kid have the conversation with the military man they drive off and round a corner. A scene is shown of the sea and very visible is a shot of "Chinaman's Hat" Island. A feature that if you have ever been to Oahu, Hawaii near Kualoa Point you would know is on the island of Oahu and not in Okinawa where the movie is supposed to take place. See Chinaman's hat at this site: http://www.hawaiiweb.com/oahu/sites_to_see/chinamans_hat.htm.

Factual error: In the scene where Mr. Miyagi and Daniel arrive in a taxi at a construction site, the taxi is stopped by a U.S. Air Force airman first class. The airman asks, "Where you going, buddy?" Mr. Miyagi says, "Tomi village." The airman says, "Never heard of it! This is Kadena Air Base." He then calls out to an off-screen person, "Sarge! Tomi village?" The off-screen voice replies, "You're standing on it, corporal!" The U.S Air Force has never had the rank of corporal in its organization.

Other mistake: When Chozen is buying vegetables from the villagers, one of the weights from the scale is knocked onto the ground. Daniel picks it up and realises that its not a real weight and breaks it in half. If Chozen wanted to cheat the villagers when he weighed their vegetables, he would need weights that were heavier than normal, not lighter plastic ones. Lighter weights would mean that Chozen would need to add far more of the light weights to make any amount of vegetables balance out, therefore he would be paying more for the vegetables than they are worth.

Suggested correction: Chozen wasn't such a dirty cheater. He wanted to earn slightly more than he should. No mistake at all.

New this month Sato owned the village and the land, and leased it to the villagers. As the villagers grow crops and harvest them to sell, they might pay a fee to Sato based on how much they produce. Sato isn't likely buying all of that food from the people. That's the only way the weight scene makes sense.

Daniel: I only hear what's worth listening to.

Trivia: When Daniel and Miyagi are picked up at the airport by Chosen, the radio is switched a few times before landing on a specific station. The song the radio is playing is the same song played at the country club in Karate Kid I where Johnny kisses Ali.
