Kung Fury

Kung Fury is a short, 31-minute comedy film. The project was successfully backed on Kickstarter, and the full project was released on YouTube yesterday. Kung Fury was written, directed by, and stars David Sandberg. The hilariously over-the-top comedy film is meant to be both a parody and a homage to 1980’s martial arts films. There is also a cameo from David Hasselhoff.

The plot of the film: Renegade kung-fu cop Kung Fury must hack back in time with the help of Hackerman, the best hacker there is, in order to kill Hitler, a kung-fu champion known as the Kung Fürher. There is also a laser blasting killer arcade machine, laser raptors, vikings with miniguns, Thor, and a triceratops who is a cop known as Triceracop.

Much like the film itself (which, sadly, while still being funded enough to make the short film as planned, failed to meet the feature film stretch goal of $1 million), I will keep this short. Kung Fury might be the single most hilarious film I have ever seen, feature-length or otherwise. If not the best comedy film I have ever seen, it is certainly up there, and you need to watch it right now! If you need any further convincing, here’s a few GIFs.

To summarize, as Reddit user MrInYourFACE said, “I am not saying this is the best movie ever made, but it has David Hasslelhoff and a Triceracop.” The full film is available to watch for free on YouTube. And in case your wondering, no this is not the end. Kung Fury was screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival to critical acclaim, and Sandberg has signed a feature film deal.
