How can you not like “The Last Dragon”? It was awesome! It had karate action scenes and gorgeous actors for days. I had the biggest crush on Taimak, who was the best looking karate action hero that I had ever seen. The only karate show I had ever watched was Kung Fu, and David Carradine wasn’t my cup of tea, so I didn’t really get into the show. However, Taimak was pure eye candy and I just had to learn how to do karate just like him.
Plus, how could you not like a movie with characters named “Leroy Green” and “Sho’nuff”? Seriously, it does not get much better than that.
I had totally forgotten that Vanity was in this movie. I’m sure she did a great job, but it’s been a very long time and Taimak just made a greater impact on me.
The guy playing “Sho’nuff is friggin hilarious. It’s like he knows that his acting is over the top, but he just doesn’t care. Love it.
Ya’ gotta love the red, glowing hands!!! I mean, come on! That just screams Kung Fu master, right???? Clearly he means business. Then, of course, we have the red sparks flying when Sho’nuff and Leroy Green fight. When Leroy Green starts glowing, you know the tide has turned. Don’t tell me we didn’t have good special effects back then.
Best of the 80s
