"KUNG FURY is an over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure."

Seems like a very worthy project to back!

Looks great! I just wish it was more "old school" (lessen up on the effects and green screen). But then again, that's the director's fortay… either way, great to see some talent getting the break they deserve. Love the 80s vibe, especially that logo that needs its tracking "adjusted".

BTW, there always was a Kung Fury…. =D

If they hit the million dollar mark, they'll try to make a real movie.

Good find WRT the poster; hopefully there won't be rights issues for the new movie.

Couldn't find a thread for Kung Fury, a movieshort that is being screened at Cannes this month.

Here's the Kickstarter movie trailer

I thought it was alright. I don't usually support this kind of apologetic comedy tributes (too afraid to do the real thing) but this was pretty catchy and had me laughing especially during the early scenes. It works surprisingly well visually, and I dug the hero. The problem is mainly that it crams three movies worth of content into 30 minutes; just focusing on 80s cop stuff would've been nicer. Oh, and I don't know if this works for Americans and other non-Europeans, but the hilarious moustache scene proved quite a brain twister. I missed half of subtitles when I was trying to figure out what fucking language are they speaking? Swedish? Norwegian? German? Danish? Nope. Swedish-English-German-Gibberish.

Totally Awesome 80s homage. Even with cgi this felt more like a throwback exploitation b movie than Rodriquez or Tarantinos grind house efforts(which I liked). For me, I will personally check for anything Sandberg makes(he'd kill an 80s slasher film) after watching this.

I just stumbled upon this on You Tube and thought it was great fun. Are they planning on making a sequel? I have to agree with you while I was watching this I was thinking about all the millions spent by Rodriguez and Tarantino and this was so much more enjoyable.

By the way was I the only one watching this thinking Sandberg is the spitting image of Loren Avedon?

I don't know about Loren Avedon, but he reminded me of Jason David Frank with a Loren Avedon NRNS2-hairstyle complete with red headband :wink:
