lolz!

Anyway, saw it last night and loved it too. A cleverly done, beautiful throwback to 80s low budget sci-fi action flick with plenty of gore. I'd love to see it become a series with The Kid & the 'Cowboy' Frederic (that guy kind of reminded me of Indiana Jones at times!) exploring more of as well as beyond the Wasteland. Though quite different than TK but as a 80s throwback, I loved Kung Fury more.

Thanks a lot for the heads up, Angra.

Alright, I'm gonna watch it now but then it's back to Narcos.

But you have to see Kung Fury and reply to this topic.

Just done watching, cool movie.
+Sweet blood and gore, Apple, Michael Ironside, Iron mask monkey dude, the locations and scenery, the music,...
-little too much synth and not enough eighties music.
-the Aussie cowboy: The character didn't feel right to me.
He looks like Indiana Jones, sounds like Crocodile Dundee and calls himself a cowboy. I think a regular redneck cowboy or a plain Indiana Jones rip-off would've been better.
He felt out of place. Might have to do something with the fact that he has a role in Wentworth and I've seen 3 seasons not that long ago.

Have you seen it?
It's even better than Turbo Kid. Not sure if they'll turn it in a full movie.

Thought something was off with that guy as well. Maybe the character was well written but the actor just tried to hard to be a bad ass... Or maybe he didn't try hard enough? Maybe that character should've been played by Michael Ironside..... Or Rutger Hauer.

Except for the music I thought Turbo Kid had a lot more in common with Hobo With a Shutgun than Kung Fury. Kung Fury was just an insane 30 minutes epic cheese fest. I wonder if the full length version will be as epic. And yes, it will be made. A music video with David Hasselhoff and a Kung Fury ps4 game has come out, for crying out loud!!
