“Glow like Leroy/ You should see boy go…”
I mean honestly, if your a black kid growing up liking girls, fighting and cool special effects (like myself), The Last Dragon was your 1985 version of The Matrix. The story of young (Bruce) Leroy Green growing up in harlem, is a funny yet difficult one. Trying to pass the final level and achieve “the glow.”, dealing with being different thanks to his little brother Richie, and battling the infamous SHO’NUFF!!! of Harlem and the evil Eddie Arkadian(evil white guy… #boo!!!). All while showing cool kung-fu techniques, a nice scenery of NYC, and the beautiful Vanity as Leroy’s love interest. Just all in all, watch this movie if you’re looking for some action.
