Being born in the 80’s and being a fan of martial arts as a child, I have always been an opportunity for this movie. I knew him when I was little, and because the name sounded familiar (Enter the Dragon is my favorite movie at the time). I did not know that it would be one of the only time I proved my knowledge on British television. I’ve never seen it on TV since, and recently I’ve bought the DVD again.
The film is about a Kung Fu student named “Bruce” Leeroy Green, who wants to reach the final level, a feat that Bruce Lee realized. The final level is reached when you are surrounded by a mystical glow, showing that you are a true kung fu master. Leeroy’s teacher told him to go to a Kung Fu master in New York, kby, the name of Som Dum individual. At the same time, he fell in love with Laura Charles Video Music presenter who wants him to be his bodyguard to help video game king Eddie Arcadia. A poor Kung Fu master like the Sho-Nuff is back in town and wants to fight Leeroy, so he can be the master of Harlem kung fu.
The film was directed by Berry Gordy, founder of Motown Records, which, of course, the soundtrack is exceptional. The film features the best of R & B and hip-hop of the time, sprinkled with references to martial arts, including “Rhythm of the Night” and “7th Heaven”. The soundtrack is one of the best I’ve heard in a movie and is strong everywhere, with very strong vibration of the eighties. If you have a soundtrack for a movie, this should be the case. This is especially great when Laura Charles starts to play a song in the seventh studio Heaven and puts Enter the Dragon, Leeroy is improving, it is disturbing to that point. The only negative aspect of the film’s music is that Eddie Arcadia’s girlfriend wants to be a pop star and that’s great, but unfortunately we have to suffer through her bad, musical music.
Sho-Nuff, the film’s main villain played by Julius J. Carry III, is brilliant. He is one of the best villains of the film, nobody can touch. He walks with giant shoulder pads and claims to be “The Shogun of Harlem”. It has classic lines like “Kiss Mis Converse” and unforgettable. I’ll be honest steal the movie under Taimak’s nose.
Taimak plays “Bruce” Leeroy Green, and it’s amazing to know he had no experience in the previous performance, and learned about the set work. It has a fantastic change. The fight scenes are incredible and certainly worthy of being called a kung fu master, his action may be a little wood sometimes, but since this is his first role, he did a brilliant job and honest marks his scenes To fight more
I also think that brother Richie Leeroy is fantastic, that he is hilarious in the movie and a great actor here. It is played by Leo O’Brien.
