Behold ‘Kung Fury,’ The Kickstarter Funded Tribute To ’80s Action Movies (Full Movie)

Over a year ago, a Kickstarter campaign was launched to raise funding for a short film titled Kung Fury, the ultimate tribute to the cheesiest, most awesome action cinema of the 1980s. More than $630,000 was raised to finance the production, and now the entire short has been released online for your viewing enjoyment.

Check it out here below in all its digitally rendered, skateboard car-flipping, Hasselhoff-soundtracked, deranged glory.

Directed, produced, written by, and starring David Sandberg, Kung Fury was selected to premiere during the Directors’ Fortnight of this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It will also be screened for the first time in the U.S. on the El Rey Network on May 28, 2015. Although Kung Fury exceeded the $200,000 goal set for the short, the Kickstarter campaign failed to raise the $1 million needed to expand the short into a full-length feature. Nonetheless, Sandberg reportedly plans to proceed forth with a Kung Fury movie.

Until then, watch the entire half-hour short film and salivate over what is yet to possibly be inflicted upon the world.

KUNG FURY is an over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure.

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 its foundation in 80s cop movies.

Kung Fury takes place in a variety of exotic locations; 1980s Miami, Asgard and Germany in the 1940s, to name a few.
