Martial arts student Leroy Green (Taimak) is on a quest to obtain the elusive all-powerful force known as “The Glow.” Along the way, he must battle the evil, self-proclaimed “Shogun of Harlem” – a kung fu warrior known as Sho’nuff (Julius J. Carry III) – and rescue a beautiful singer (Prince protégée Vanity) from an obsessed record promoter. Combining pulsating music, cutting-edge dancing and the best in non-stop action, Berry Gordy’s The Last Dragon is kickin’ good fun featuring an amazing Motown soundtrack, including music by Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Vanity and DeBarge performing their smash hit “Rhythm of the Night .”

LastStylish, romantic, funny, exciting, and completely entertaining from beginning to end, The Last Dragon was the final film to come from Motown Productions, a film company originally established to produce television specials for the artists signed to Berry Gordy's landmark record label. They eventually began to produce theatrical feature films, including Lady Sings the Blues (1972) and the cult classic The Wiz (1978) with Diana Ross and Michael Jackson.
