An enjoyable pastiche of martial arts, romance, music, and video, "The Last Dragon" presents a likable young hero, Leroy (Taimak), who aspires to become a kung fu master. Though black and living in Harlem with his family, Leroy lives like a Chinese. Trouble arises in the form of a huge black man who calls himself "Sho' Nuff," who is determined to prove himself the kung fu master of the neighborhood.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The Last Dragon is a flamboyant genre mashup brimming with style, romance, and an infectious fondness for kung fu, but audiences may find the tonal whiplash more goofy than endearing.

Common Sense Says
Unique martial arts musical with some stereotypes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this martial arts musical from the 1980s, produced by Berry Gordy of Motown records, is terribly dated, and probably didn't look very modern even when it opened. It contains some martial arts violence (very little blood), and some swearing and plenty of sexual innuendo. There's the potential for some offensive racial stereotypes, both African-American and Asian, but the movie has a good heart and a good hero. It features some of the same messages as The Karate Kid, which was released the year before, and teens may find some inspiration in the physical and spiritual martial arts training.
