As martial arts films go, you’re unlikely to find one more bonkers than the kickstarter funded Kung Fury.

Written, directed and starring David Sandberg, it’s abundantly clear that the man has a huge affection for 80s b-movie action.

Aside from the crazy plot, which features a martial artist cop traveling back in time to Nazi Germany, to kill the worst criminal of all time, Adolf Hitler, aka Kung Fuhrer, the film has a certain finish to it that rekindles the fond memories of VHS.

Complete with picture tracking and slightly wobbly audio, it’s all here and further complemented by some authentic 80s synth tracks.

Simply put, Kung Fury is a love letter to bad 80s cinema packed tightly into 30 insane minutes and it is simply amazing.

Any longer may’ve been a bit too indulgent, but I can’t deny that Kung Fury was so enjoyable it left me wanting more.

To talk about the film anymore would do a serious disservice to anyone who hasn’t seen it yet and believe me, this short film needs to be seen to be believed.

Kung Fury can now be found on YouTube for free, or you could just watch it below.

Enjoy
