Wolf of Wall Street? Meh. American Hustle? Please. Anchorman 2? Tired. The Hobbit? I dare you. None of those movies in theaters right now compare to the epic awesomeness that is Kung Fury. Never heard of it? It’s okay. Just watch the trailer. It combines all the cheesy glory of 80′s cop movies with Kung Fu, killing Hitler, guns, Vikings, computer hacking, time travel, DeLoreans and dinosaurs
Kung Fury is an over-the-top (you couldn’t tell?) action comedy movie directed by David Sandberg. It nails the balance between ridiculousness, self-awareness, awesomeness and every other -ness adjective ever. The movie is currently a Kickstarter project that needs a bit of funding as most of the scenes of the movie were filmed on a green screen (and artists need to be hired to fill out the green screen in post production). Here’s the plot summary:
During an unfortunate series of events a friend of Kung Fury is assassinated by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer. Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all. Kung Fury is a visually spectacular action comedy that has it’s foundation in 80s cop movies.
Not ridiculous enough? The movie takes place in 1980′s Miami, Asgard, 1940′s Germany and other far out places. If the Kickstarter is funded, the entire movie will be put on the Internet for free. You know what that means: never watch another movie again until you watch Kung Fury. You can support it here.
