Retro Fury is more retro than advertised

’80s-flavored short film features console light guns

Redshirt Films have taken the nostalgia train to retroville with this homage to ’80s senseless action flicks. The plot is minimal, the dialogue sparse, but the action is actually pretty decent, with every gun coming from the systems of yore.

The NES Zapper, PSOne GunCom, Sega Menacer, and of course SNES Super Scope Six all take center stage in this goofy action piece. It’s as if Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon had a weird drunken orgy with every pistol peripheral and direct-to-video ’80s action flick, and gave birth to the illegitimate live-action film baby of Uwe Boll’s wet dreams.

Yeah, try to get that image out of your head now.
