I love everything about the now long lost "Revenge cop" genre of the 1980s so to see David Sandberg and his company Laser Unicorns pen such a heartfelt love letter to the genre with their short "Kung Fury" just brings teary-eyed right back to glow of the TV lit basement of my youth.
Despite all the hand-me-down props, cheap looking sets and awful dialogue its a blast to watch. Watching this movie is kinda like telling your friends you love them; its corny, embarrassing and really only should be done once an a while but its a solid wholesome good time that will leave you feeling better than you did going in.
Its a brilliantly choreographed frenzy of action, drama and comedy. Dynamic performances by the leads and a gimmick storyline keeps the fun going the whole hour an a half runtime. If your a Kung Fu connoisseur or new to the genre, Project A is a buffet of clever comedic Kung Fu served up by the master chef of the genre.
Imagine a film with all the colorful characters, cute musical numbers and scenes of endearing innocence that Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory had but with less children and more blowjobs and you would have Alice in Wonderland.
The late 90’s was the tail end of the glorious era of when “B” movies were “A” movies and for me "Starship Troopers" is a grand salute to everything that was good and absurd about the era. Being a great appreciator of irony, Director Paul Verhoeven hilariously made a 100 million dollar "B" movie complete with campy performances by fresh faced actors, highly quotable terrible dialogue and gooey practical effects monsters.
