The TV prints of this entertaining melange whittled down the film's original self-serving title (Motown king Berry Gordy was the producer), and settled on merely The Last Dragon. Taimak stars as an African American martial-arts whiz, so devoted to his hobby that he dresses and behaves in what he thinks is true Chinese fashion. Taimak falls in love with sexy veejay Vanity. Gangsters intrude on both their lives when crook Julius J. Carry III tries to promote his talentless protegee into rock stardom. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
I remember seeing this movie at the drive-in when I was a kid...classic martial arts movie...fun..entertaining...some of the pop culture references are a little dated....and the stereotypes are a little much...but still a treat to watch SHO-NUFF!!! Tai-mak actually made a recent appearance in a music video for the band 36 Crazyfists called "bloodwork" in all of his Bruce Leroy ninja glory. lol.
