Character Role Analysis

Montoya

Montoya, the Spanish hotel owner, is the Mr. Miyagi to Jake’s Karate Kid. Montoya is an old school aficionado of bull-fighting; he’s seen matadors come and go, and he knows the sport better than anyone else. Jake, a young aficionado, shares a true understanding of the sport with Montoya, as well as a genuine love for it. Jake and Montoya have a real respect for each other because of their common passion for bull-fighting. In the end, though, the student betrays the master; Jake lets Montoya down by introducing Romero to Brett, thereby corrupting the talented young matador.
