Holly tries to find "The Glow" of Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon (1985), Motown's first (and only) motion picture production. A kung-fu movie by way of MTV music videos, this blacksploitation flick centers on a martial arts student, Bruce Leroy (Taimak), who seeks to become master of his discipline, which can only be achieved by defeating both the Sho'Nuff - the Shogun of Harlem - and a slimy corporate type who threatens a pretty TV VJ (Vanity). Nothing could have prepared us for the explosive, laser-enhanced final battle!
