Get ready for some seriously big hair. The Last Dragon--or, to call it by its full title, Berry Gordy's the Last Dragon--is a stunning example of 1980s camp cinema. One-name kung fu wonder Taimak plays Leroy Green, a.k.a. Bruce Leroy, a humble student of kung fu who has achieved the highest level of skill, but hasn't yet found his inner master. Wandering through the streets of New York in a Chinese peasant outfit, he accidentally becomes the protector of nightclub hostess/video jockey Laura Charles (played by former Prince protégé Vanity, who also costarred in the trash classic Action Jackson). She's being threatened by a height-challenged mobster who wants her to play his girlfriend's video (the girlfriend is something of a Cyndi Lauper look-alike, played by Broadway star Faith Prince). Meanwhile, a man who calls himself Sho'Nuff, the Shogun of Harlem, wants to kick Leroy's ass and prove himself the baddest kung fu master in town. Add to this Leroy's smart-mouthed brother Richie (who calls Leroy "the chocolate-covered yellow peril"), a dregs-of-Motown soundtrack (DeBarge is a high point), ninja battles, pseudo-Eastern philosophical babble, and a jaw-dropping club performance by Vanity, and you have a hilarious example of why we're all so very glad the '80s are over. Featuring a bit role by William H. Macy (Fargo, Magnolia). --Bret Fetzer

Enjoyed this campy chop-socky flick as a teenager and again as middle-aged videofile. The adventures of "Bruce" Leroy Green will never get old for me. Two thumbs up.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars--Brilliant, Baby!! May 25 2004
Format:DVD
I absolutely LOVE this movie. This is one of my favorites! I don't know how people critique movies, and what they call "great", but I'm tired of them, they don't know what the (bleep) they're talking about!!
This movie is sooooooo great! I love Taimak and Vanity (a protegee of the man Prince I awesomely adore) and all of the characters. Sho'nuff may be ug-ly but he makes me laugh! The whole movie makes me laugh.
The tough, strong, yet cute and gentle Leroy Green (son of Daddy Green and his Pizza) a.k.a Bruce Leroy is a funny character I just love. Laura Childs is so pretty and sassy, you just love her. The Plot is endlessly good and I LOVE THIS MOVIE! I recommend it to you and your family (PG-13, though) and you will love it! I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT!!
BUY IT, WATCH IT, LOVE IT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the critics! I love this movie! April 1 2004
Format:DVD
I don't know why such a bad review is posted here on Amazon? I am sad that the 80s are over, but I still have my DVD to watch any time I want. Bruce Leroy has to go up agienst a bad dude by the name of sho nuff.. All while tring to find the inner glow that will give him the power to defeat his foes...
He has to help a beautiful lady named Laura Charles a video DJ who is harassed by some crazy promotor who will stop at nothing to get a video played on her show..
I love the film for the action and we get to see some Bruce Lee in it too! Leroy is sent out on a mission to find the way to reach the glow and when he has to fight Sho nuff, he finds out that he is the master!
I loved this movie and I wish that there was a sequel... Grab some popcorn and just sit back and have fun...

5.0 out of 5 stars Who da MASTER?! Bruce Leroy that's who! Feb. 27 2004
Format:DVD
Oh my God! I remember seeing this film over a dozen times and I still find it to be the most highly entertaining film to come out of the 80's.
I have very fond memories of this movie being that I am a child of the 80's, and this film is an excellent piece of nostalgia for anyone old enough to experience the 80's in their teens or their 20's, or even for someone like me (who was simply a child).
The story itself is pretty basic, but very entertaining nonetheless. Would-be entertainment mogul Eddie Arkadian wishes to form an alliance with Video Disc Jockey Laura Charles, the host of a popular Soul Train-esque type show called
'7th Heaven', in order to make his girlfriend Angela (looking very much like Cindy Lauper's twin) a glitzy popstar goddess. When Laura refuses, he takes drastic measures to ensure her cooperation. thus Leroy enters the scene and becomes Laura's protector, and she in turn begins to fall for him despite his naivetee regarding the ways of romance. While all this is going on, Sho'Nuff with his crew want to proclaim dominance over the streets as the baddest mofo in town, and the only way to do that is to kick Leroy's ass through all Five Boroughs all the way to Shaghai.
Anyway, the film can be viewed on many different levels: it is pretty campy in parts (this is the 80's we're talking about), but it has a great deal of heart because in essence Taimak's character of Leroy is on a journey of self-discovery and a sort of spiritual coming of age type of ordeal. Leroy is someone that appears to be in his early to mid 20's, who has put a great deal of dedication into studying the martial arts and understanding the philosophy behind them.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than corn Feb. 5 2004
Format:DVD
A lot of the folks who've written positive reviews of this film put it in the 'cheesy fun' or 'guilty pleasure' category. Not to ruin anyone's enjoyment by going deep, but there's more to it than that. 'Camp' is a better description because the over-the-top elements are more self-conscious and purposive. 'Camp' might be defined as the co-existense of cheese and wit in the same space. Not just the actors, but the characters, are all role-playing, and the 'moral' is that happiness comes from finding a good persona to perform. It's a very 80s, upbeat, define-your-own identity kind of thing. Biology (e.g. race) is not destiny -- except maybe for the white guy villian who can't escape his own stupidity. Otherwise, there's the Black Pizza Restaurant, Blacks acting like Asians, and Asians acting like blacks -- all having a good time. A utopian vision of an MTV world, if only it were true!! And how can you beat a film that opens with a kung fu sensei sending his young charge Bruce LeRoy off to seek the wisdom of the high master Sum Dum Goy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Two hours of my life I really WANT BACK!!!! Jan. 27 2004
Format:DVD
OK, before last fall, I had never heard of the Last Dragon. So I was talking to my friend one day, and he mentioned it, and I asked if DMX (the rapper) was in it. He, in turn, laughed at me. So it is because of his laughter that I watched this movie. I, along with my roommate, set up for a night of movie watching....
What a mistake! First of all, we talked all during the film about how corny and stupid it was. I know I'm going against the rest of the reviews, but movies like this do nothing for me. And then the part where we found out who The Master was....talk about WACK!!!!
All in all, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you like corny 80s stuff, you may enjoy this. I, on the other hand, really want those two hours back.
