30 mins of 80's nostalgia of awesomeness
2 June 2015 | by MattBrady099See all my reviews

Hitler: (Phoning the police) "Hello is this the police?"

Police officer on the phone: "Yes".

Hitler: "Fuck you!"

Kung Fury started off as a fan film made by David Sandberg that got released on the YouTube as 30 min short film, but in a matter of hours it was a big hit with it's views and the amount of people loved it because they got that nostalgic 80's feel to it. I got so much praised and so much love that it got a big release. So I checked it out myself just to see what was all the fuss about and I got to say that Kung Fury is the coolest action movie of 2015, it's right up there with Mad Max: Fury Road.

What really surprise me is that this is just a fan movie and it blows my mind how fans can make a better and more well made movie then even Hollywood can sh*t out, I mean David Sandberg put a lot of effort to make the whole movie look like a out of date VHS tape and to catch the 80's magic and it payed off so well.

The movie is really funny, the actor who played Hitler in the movie did really good and David Sandberg made a pretty awesome movie that's creative and fresh.

For problems I had for this movie these only a couple like: These one scene towards the end that kind of lost me a little and that's the end battle with Hitler vs. Kung Fury.

Some of the dialogue needs improving a little bit, but besides that this movie is awesome and it brought a lot of the 80's action fluff that we as movie lovers loved in the first place and it's so good to see it again in this brilliant 30 min short movie.

It's free on YouTube if you want to check it out and the video is only 30 mins long and it was 30 mins of awesomeness.
