Review of Kung Fury (2015)

Initial Thought: I just now heard of it. It sounds ridiculous and fun. So I figured why the hell not. Given the cast it isn't meant to be taken anything other than a cheesy fun time.

Characters/Acting: It has Jorma Taccone from Lonely Island and the king of cheese David Hasselhoff. The acting is very 80s with how truly goofy everyone behaves. The characters are pretty hilarious and yet kind of cool.

Story: Well Adolf Hitler is apparently a master of kung fu and everything just sort of gets crazier from there. Some of the stunts they pull here are just so hilarious. The plot is all over the place, but that is what gives this some of it's charm. I also noticed they really worked in a lot of good 80s references. They even add some awesomely terrible jokes and puns. The CGI and make up effects here are actually quite good. The fight scenes were pretty fun to watch especially the one in Nazi Germany. That ending was too great.

Directing/Writing: David Sandberg hasn't done anything else, but he is also the main star of this short thrill ride. The dialogue was really well thought out given the intention behind it. He really knew what he was doing and it looks like he had a lot of fun doing it.

Final Thought: That was just the right amount of cheese. It was made so well at being bad that it was just so entertaining. This is definitely something that should be noticed. If you haven't seen this get on it. I really wouldn't mind a sequel or even a feature length film.
