Kung Fury Might Just Be the Best Thing EverMay 29th, 2015
After a lengthy wait, Kung Fury, the crowdfunded ’80s style action movie has finally been released, and it was well worth the wait. It’s packed with cheesy video effects and synth pop, intentionally bad acting, laser raptors, evil Nazis, and of course, lots of Kung Fu. The 30-minute popcorn flick follows the story of a cop with superpowers who goes back in time to kill Hitler, but who accidentally goes too far back in time thanks to his Intellivision-powered time machine.
While it could just be a bad B-movie, its makers actually did a great job paying tribute to the 1980s, and peppered the film with lots of humor and some great action sequences. The gags about the gadgets of the era are especially hilarious.
If you haven’t seen it yet. Drop whatever you’re doing, and hit play. And if you have seen it, watch it again.
(Note: Kung Fury is packed with profanity and lots of Mortal Kombat-esque gore. If this kind of stuff offends you, don’t watch.)
