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.

This is probably the most amusing 80s film made in the 2000s. Hitler, Kung Fu, Thor and dinosaurs - what a great-messy idea! Shallow, badly acted, trashy, over the top and completely insane - I want a long version of this right now! This is Kill Bill good.
I can't even begin to describe how freaking awesome insane is this short! Loved every second of it. Give us more, Sandberg! And I just read Jorma Taccone was Hitler! WHAT? What an amazing makeup! Congrats to the makeup artist because I'd NEVER guess who it was!
Fun short obviously made by someone who loves genre films. Sure it's hokey and extremely amateur hour but any short that mixes martial arts, barbarians, dinosaurs, greek gods, dino cops and a kung fu master Adolf Hitler can't be all bad. '...I'm a cop. I have to go to work....'
Tirata in salvo l'idea simpatica di base e qualche battuta che mi ha strappato un sorriso, il resto può essere facilmente scartato. Già sento nelle orecchie chi dice che "è volutamente trash, non è fatto male", ma trovo che la consapevolezza del livello cinematograficamente ridicolo del proprio film non sia una giustificazione, anzi, forse la trovo proprio un'aggravante. Poco più di un trip, di sicuro non un film.
(Generous) 3 - There's a funny idea or two in this, but it spends so much of its meager running time checking 80s parody boxes and trying to look cool that it just becomes the most cynical of jokes, a sort of (less shitty) Seltzerberg-style hodgepodge-y jab at the decade of excess. Not that there's anything wrong with a joke, as long as it's not played at the audience's expense. Watch "Black Dynamite" instead.
