For the last half an hour, I’ve been watching the craziest ’80s action movie ever. Its name is Kung Fury and it was released Thursday.

Funded on Kickstarter after a successful campaign started in Dec. 2013, Kung Fury follows the eponymous title character, a bandana-adorned cop with superpowers which grant him uncanny knowledge of kung fu.

While you’d be forgiven for thinking that behind every great film is a limitless budget, it would surprise many to learn that you can actually create an excellent, ripe-tomato-of-a-film on a small budget
