Why Haven’t You Watched ‘Kung Fury’ Yet?

So we’ve talked about Kung Fury on multiple occasions on this blog (and the amazing Hasselhoff video for its theme song), but for those of you who aren’t caught up, it’s a crowd funded, over the top homage to 80s action cinema.

And it premiered yesterday online and on the El Rey Network.

And honestly? Kung Fury lived up to everything it proclaimed itself to be. It’s 31 minutes of concentrated awesomeness. And I do mean concentrated, because Kung Fury is a densely packed, unending stream of action and jokes. Most of them work, and the few that don’t are followed quickly enough by ones that do where it’s forgivable.

The genius of Kung Fury is that the gimmick works really well in a short film. I don’t know if I could have watched something longer than a half hour without being allowed to pause for breath like that.

But you should totally watch it… like immediately.

As in “right now.”

Here it is. Go do it.
