Trivia

Kung Fury wears a Ray-Ban Wayfarer as a nod to the sunglass model's resurgence in popularity in the 1980s, when it was prominently worn by actors such as Tom Cruise, Don Johnson, and Bruce Willis. See more »

Goofs

At 10:30 hackerman tried to kinda convert equation E=m*c^2 to E=m*c^3 for hacking time. But in a line of his code he wrote "double e = Math.power( m*c , 2);" which calculates m^2*c^2, not m*c^2. By the way maybe this is itself the reason why he hacked too much time. See more »

They f@#%ed with the wrong cop.
28 May 2015 | by ghostjunkSee all my reviews

Struck by lightning and bit by a cobra, an ordinary cop has a revelation which helps him master a new form of Kung Fu so powerful that only he, the chosen one, can learn. With his newfound powers, he will stop at nothing to bring justice to the crime-infested streets of Miami. No one could have predicted what was about to come his way, however, once he must embark on a dangerous adventure back through time to avenge a fallen friend.

Kung Fury not only put a permanent smile on my face throughout the entire movie, it completely blew me away and well exceeded my expectations. Writer/ director and lead actor David Sandberg may be the new kid on the block, but hell does he ever know how to make a debut! His character, who goes by the same name as the movie, is the perfect cross between Marty McFly, Steven Seagal, and a Ninja Turtle. But I think the film's biggest strength is that it never takes itself too seriously and remains self-aware of its hilarious and intentional cheese.

You know you're about to get on board for something special as soon as you see the perfectly dated vintage look of the main titles and hear the old-school soundtrack the movie sports. The ode to retro games and electronics alone is worth seeing for the epic blast of nostalgia! I can tell a lot of time and passion went into the making of this short indie film and couldn't be prouder to have been one of the original Kickstarter funders that helped this project take off.

What else can I say except Sandberg may have created the perfect recipe for awesome with this epically over-the-top homage to vintage action movies and the era of VHS tapes that any '80s kid could drool over!
