Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Kung Fury

(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.
