YES. If you don’t remember the crazy bananas movie that was Kung Fury, go and watch the trailer again. You’ll see a completely over the top preview that includes Kung Fu, dinosaurs, DeLoreans, time travel, killing Hitler, Vikings and more. It was glorious. Now the entire movie is online for free to watch on YouTube.
It is totally cheesy and it is totally silly and it is weird but it is all in that in all the right ways. Here’s what we said after watching the trailer:
Kung Fury is an over-the-top (you couldn’t tell?) action comedy movie directed by David Sandberg. It nails the balance between ridiculousness, self-awareness, awesomeness and every other -ness adjective ever.
And here’s a bit about the movie, that finished its funding through Kickstarter:
During an unfortunate series of events a friend of Kung Fury is assassinated by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer. Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all. Kung Fury is a visually spectacular action comedy that has it’s foundation in 80s cop movies.
Watching this is a great way to spend a Friday evening, if you ask me.
