Martial arts student Leroy Green (Taimak) is on a quest to obtain the elusive all-powerful force know as "The Glow." Along the way he must battle the evil, self-proclaimed Shogun of Harlem - a kung fu warrior also known as Sho-nuff (Julius J. Carry III) - and rescue a beautiful singer (Prince protégée Vanity) from an obsessed record promoter.
Combining pulsating music, cutting edge dancing and the best in non-stop action, Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon is kickin' good fun featuring an amazing Motown soundtrack, including music by Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Vanity and Debarge performing their smash hit "Rhythm of the Night."

every now and again a film that on the surface shouldnt really be any good at all comes together so well its almost sublime in its genius. the last dragon falls into this catagory. the wit and humour is literally decades ahead of its time being almost post ironic at times and the actors OBVIOUSLY had a ball doing this and it shows in their preformances. even the music is used to great effect to illustrate the story and if you dont cheer when leroy finds out who the master is youve no soul.
its virtually impossible outside of america to get this so do so if you can. though essentially a spoof on the bruce lee films its a great little actioner in its own right with huge amounts of heart at its core and it reminds me of why i came to love cinema to begin with. dont miss out on this ! :)

What a movie! An all time classic movie from mowtown. This movie has to be in my top 5 movies of all time. I first saw this as a kid and it's a great martial arts film. The action in this movie is fantastic and the story is pretty good too. I got this movie about 2 yrs ago after not seeing it since i was a kid. Normally movies what you see as a kid aren't the same when you watch them as an adult but this is just as good as the first time i saw it. Would reccomend this to anyone, it's that good!!
