Leroy Green: I am no master.

Kung Fu classic
16 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

The Last Dragon had everything a kung fu classic should have. As a chlid this was one of my favorite films. Tamiak surpisply never did another movie but it's still a lot of fun. Soon I'll own the DVD. Check this movie out for a good time.
