This is an action-oriented Karate Kid sequel starring an up-and-coming Hillary Swank. That much I can understand. But why is she an angry, disaffected teen who also loves makeup and wants to go to the mall? And what’s with the high school paramilitary? Are they just there to distract from the shallow teen love plot, or are we mired in the dystopian future? Isn’t it *actually* hilarious when Mr. Miyagi establishes prom night curfew with Swank’s terrified boyfriend? When did Zen monks gain a reputation for madcap antics? Seriously: What is going on here? Watchable.
