KUNG FURY (2015) Short Film: 80’s Cop Action Comedy Movie

Kung Fury Short Film. David Sandberg‘s Kung Fury (2015) short film stars David Sandberg, Jorma Taccone, Leopold Nilsson, Steven Chew, and Andreas Cahling. Kung Fury‘s plot synopsis: “Miami Police Department detective and martial artist Kung Fury time travels from the 1980s to World War II to kill Adolf Hitler, a.k.a. “Kung Führer”, and revenge his friend’s death at the hands of the Nazi leader. An error in the time machine sends him further back to the Viking Age.”

I saw other sites posting about this short film a few days ago and bypassed it. I didn’t see what the big deal was. Another throw-back film? Then I watched the first five minutes and was instantly entertained. After watching the beginning of the film, I realized why everyone was posting about Kung Fury. It’s a fun short film (30 minutes) and the people that made it (via Kickstarter, beginning in 2014) obvious had fun as well. I could not begin to list all of the 80’s references in this film. I would need to be as good as one of the zealots in Ready Player One to do that.On which actors are playing which characters:
