– Summary –

Director :   David Sandberg
Year Of Release :   2015
Principal Cast :  David Sandberg, Jorma Taccone, Steven Chew, Leopold Nilsson, Adreas Cahling, Per-henrik Arvidius, Eleni Young, Helene Ahlson, Eos Karlsson,
Approx Running Time :  31 Minutes
Synopsis:   Don’t bother, it sounds nuts. Watch the film at the bottom.
What we think :  If you don’t think a 30 minute short film can be the greatest viewing experience of your short, miserable life, then you are dead to me. Kung Fury is what happens when creativity and drive meet passion and kickstarter money. Endlessly enjoyable, filled with so many pants-wetting laugh-out-loud moments, Kung Fury is my new go-to for “hey, you have to watch this”. Brilliant.
