YMMV / The Last Dragon

  • Awesome Music: The whole soundtrack! It's produced by Motown, so what do you expect?
    • Special props to “The Glow,” which begins when Sho’nuff disappears at the beginning of the Final Battle.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Just before the climactic free-for-all at 7th Heaven, a music video starts playing out of nowhere, featuring a performer who looks a lot like Angela but has a much better singing voice. Eddie has no idea where the video came from, Rock refers to the singer as "Charlene," and then the scene ends just as abruptly as it began.
  • Ear Worm: ♪ "You are the Last Dragon/You possess the power... of the GLOW!" ♫
    • "Sukiyaki Hot-Sake Sue/You sock it ta me,/I sock it ta you...."
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Sho'nuff, sure enough. He's ludicrously over-the-top as a villain, dresses like a campy football player/samurai, and always looks and sounds like he just smelled something terrible. Naturally, he's awesome.
  • Fountain of Memes: Pretty much everything about Sho'nuff has become memetic, but particularly "WHO IS... THE MASTAH?!"
  • Guilty Pleasure: Roger Ebert said jokingly it was ten times as good as ET The Extraterrestrial because it features people with ten glowing fingers.
  • Narm Charm: Some find Taimak's acting wooden. And that's perfect for playing the socially awkward Leroy, on top of giving it a nice chop-socky feel.
  • Vindicated by Cable: Got a resurgence from airing on cable and subscription movie networks.
