80’s Cop Films and Martial Arts Collide in Kickstarter Comedy ‘Kung Fury’

Although Kung Fury has already smashed through its Kickstarter goal and one watch of the insane trailer should tell you why people have been sticking their hands in their pockets for this one.

I mean there are few trailers can boast a time travelling skateboard wielding cop travelling back in time to defeat the most evil kung fu master of them all , Adolf Hitler – the “Kung Fuhrer.” If that hasn’t already blown your mind you’ve got a cheesy 80’s soundtrack, the film and  Vikings! The filmmakers boast such a variety of locale (courtesy of green screen) including 980s Miami, Asgard and 1940s Germany.

Check out the crazy trailer below.

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 it’s foundation in 80s cop movies.

The project current stands at $467,187 (they were asking for $200,000). It will be interesting to see what their plans are for the excess cash. As I said even though the target has been met I may picking up the digital download pledge before the Kickstarter ends on 25th Jan.
