The Last Dragon

We always say the best music, movies and TV shows have all been made, we’re here to help you remember them all.
1985’s Berry Gordy’s “The Last Dragon” is proof of that.

This had it all for us as kids in the 80s; music, crazy friends, bad guys and the hero, Bruce Leeroy.

Taimak stars as the reluctant hero in this 1985 classic that featured a ton of future stars including Mike Starr, Chazz Palminteri, William H. Macy and more. The movie starred Jim Moody (Bad Boys, Fame), Christopher Murney and Faith Prince as well. For us guys tho… the star was the late, Vanity. Fresh out of Prince’s camp, Berry Gordy signed her to a four-picture contract in ’85.

Sho Nuff (the bad guy played by Julius Carry) is probably one of the most cartoon-like characters ever in a movie and Julius Carry did a great job of bringing him to life.

The movie was budgeted for 10 million dollars and did over 33 million dollars at the box office.

The soundtrack included music from Vanity, Alfie, Willie Hutch, DeBarge, Stevie Wonder, Rockwell and others. Check it out below.
