At some point in the 80’s, Kung Fury joined the Miami police force where he mentored under a man named Dragon. On one of their police chases, Kung Fury and Dragon were hunting down a kung fu master. Dragon was killed during the chase and Kung Fury nearly met the same fate as he was struck by lightning and bit by a cobra all at the same time. His life was completely changed by the rare occurrence!
Kung Fury woke up and was a different person. The Kickstarter backed film, Kung Fury, tell the story how he returned to Miami and swore he would be the best police officer fighting crime. He lost all sense of rules and regulations, but still did the best he could to protect Miami’s streets from criminals. With his mix of martial arts that came from his visions and the superhuman strength that he received after the lightning strike and cobra bite, Kung Fury is a force to be reckoned with!
