I appreciate irony, but I don’t have ironic tastes. I’m not the kind of guy who watches a movie because it’s so terrible it’s good. If it’s terrible, it’s terrible.
KUNG FURY is a short film based on exactly those type of 80s movies, but it’s not bad at all. In fact, it’s awesome. It’s not so much a satire or spoof as a riff, an homage, a hilarious and fun compilation of familiar tropes jam packed into ridiculousness awesomeness.
KUNG FURY tells the story of a gritty cop who is gifted with godlike kung fu powers. When Adolf Hitler travels through time to challenge him, Kung Fury must travel back to Nazi Germany to kill Kung Fuhrer, accompanied by a stalwart cast of comrades.
I reported on this back when it was a Kickstarter project. Glad to see they made the film. Can’t wait for KUNG FURY II.
