Quotes

[Kang sees three NES boxes on the table]
Kang: Director, are you reading me?
Director Conway: Loud and clear.
Kang: I'm seeing a bunch of toaster sized devices. They look like some kind of mad science project.
Director Conway: Our intel describes something like that. Those are human enhancement devices. The North Koreans use them to give their soldiers special abilities.
Kang: I see.
[Kang stares at the center box]
Director Conway: Do not touch them, Kang. Those are not FDA approved.
Kang: Yeah, well neither are bullets, and they're always at the top of my grocery list.

Well done cyberpunk short!
24 April 2020 | by tunatownwarriorSee all my reviews

If you are fan of cyberpunk (Blade Runner) and also you are fan of short retro wave comedy action (like Kung Fury) you should definetly see this. With $80 grands budget - this movie is one of the best Ive seen within past year.
