One of two classics (along with Krush Groove) directed by Michael Schultz and released in 1985, The Last Dragon is a mix of what was on the minds of kids at the time: kung-fu, breakdancing, romance and El Debarge. No one who has seen this Saturday-afternoon stalwart can forget Bruce Leroy, the Bruce Lee-idolizing Harlem teen, and his nemesis, Sho’nuff (the great Julius Carry)—and especially not Vanity (“Can it be Vanity from Last Dragon?”). Featuring a showdown shot on the Deuce at the Victory Theater.
