Cool Videos: Kung Fury has been released and it's full of 80's insanity

05.28.2015

Over the past few years we've followed the production of KUNG FURY, an over-the-top 80's action/comedy that's equal parts brilliance and insanity. The project was successfully funded through Kickstarter and premiered last Friday at Cannes, but KUNG FURY has now been officially released online for everyone to enjoy.

So stop whatever you're doing and sit down for thirty minutes of talking dinosaurs, Nazis, mini-gun wielding vikings, and more 80's nostalgia than you can throw a Rubik's Cube at; just don't forget to adjust your tracking.

KUNG FURY has long been a passion project for Swedish filmmaker David Sanberg, who wrote, directed, and starred in the film, and if you think this is the end of the KUNG FURY saga, you'd be wrong; a feature version may be on the way. Sanberg met up with David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith, who shared his love of all things 80's, and they put him in touch with Tyler Burton Smith, an American video game writer based in Finland. Sandberg and Smith worked together to flesh out a longer version of the script which allowed for bigger action and some actual character development.

If you're in the mood for more KUNG FURY, more sure to check out the equally bizarre KUNG FURY music video which stars none other than David Hasselhoff.

I hit the neutral rating, and here's why: it's perfect as is. Don't do a sequel, or a Netflix/Amazon/Hulu series, or let a studio offer $100 million to do a 2 hour star-studded cameo-filled version. Leave it as is. It's perfect the way it is. It's fresh, fun, original and above all, funny. If it becomes anything other than what it is, it ceases to have the same allure. It's a rarity where a filmmaker has taken things we're all familiar with and made it original. That's lightning in a bottle

Money well spent. One of the greatest short films I have ever seen. My only complaint: it's too short.

That was brilliant! Hope it gets the full feature treatment, but maybe at only 70 minutes, and crank up the action LOL.

Unfolded Poster Shipping Cost!!!

Why is the shipping $48??? That's ridiculous no matter what country it is coming from. It doesn't weigh shit even in a tube.
