Ruthless cop Marion Cobretti is on the hunt for a serial killer known as the Night Slasher while protecting a witness.
This is why you should give this film a pass:
- cutting pizza with scissors
- 'This is where the law ends and I start...........sucker!'
- Matchstick toothpick.
- Dennis Leary once said he wanted a cheese helmet so he could put it on and eat cheese the entire day. This is that.
- There is no plot. This is a good thing.
- Lots of A-team violence.
Brigitte Nielsen is awful. It's like watching an East European shot put athlete trying to act.
Oh, Hell Yeah. One of my new favorite action movies. Start with a dash of Se7en , add a heaping spoonful of Dirty Harry, and finish with a sprinkling of cheesy eighties dialogue -- and voila, you have a cocktail of cool.
It's a hyper-violent, reactionary wet dream, worth mentioning alongside the great Death Wish. We won't worry about the politics, though. Just focus on the cool 1950 Mercury or Brigitte Nielsen's long legs in those tight jeans until the next car chase or fight scene.
So worth it.

The 80s where the year of cheesy action movies, and Cobra is definitelly one of my favorite, but I'll just have to apologize to all of you english speakers, because you'll never now the ultimate cheesyness level of portuguese dubbing for this movie. They've made such a ridiculous job that made it become an iconic piece of art, hilarious and tremendously badass. It's so great that I've seen it three times already if I'm not wrong, and not a single one of them with the original audio.
I just can't rate it normally, so I'll give it five stars, representing the amount of fun I always have watching it.
Quite possibly the peak of 80's cliche and cheese, this Stallone vehicle mixes Dirty Harry with Commando and is a total blast. You could sit and pick your way through every flaw but that isn't the point - enjoy the brutal action, naff script and Stallone looking like he's trying a little too hard not to laugh.
Gotta love the 80s :-) Cobra is 1 of the many cheesy, campy 80s action flicks, this time starring Sylvester Stallone. As silly as most of the dialogue is, you simply can't go wrong with this 1986 film directed by George P. Cosmatos. Own it now :-)

June Challenge Film 4. I am not sure how I managed to make it this long without seeing this movie as a 30something action film junkie. This was pretty much a standard good level 80s action movie for me. It was ultra-violent, silly, and had absurd chases, gunfights, and dialogue. That's pretty much enough to make me happy. This was also the only time I thought Brigitte looked pretty good, even if her acting left a lot to be desired as usual. I am glad to have this marked off my list of shame now.
Stallone classic. Comedy gold. So bad it's good.
Ah, don't you just love 80s actioners...
And fist-pumping action
What else does one need?!
Okay, so the dialogue sounds straight outta Judge Dredd, 3 stars it is!
This is made even more incomprehensible by the fact that I can't understand a goddamn word Stallone is saying, he's even more mumbling than usual.
This movie has no plot, the whole thing is just held together by clichés and hackneyed acting. It's like Stallone thought "wouldn't it be cool of Cobra did this... or said this..." and then fit each scene around that. It's almost postmodern; if someone was given a lot of money to make a parody of an eighties action movie they would make something very like this, although I don't think anyone involved in this realises it is so funny. I also don't think a parody would get close to being this funny.
It's also kind…
Ryan Gosling is Sylvester Stallone is Cobra. Uncanny how Gosling has modeled his toughguy-ness after this movie.
A weird 80's action film that feels more 70's but then has jarring uber-violent action. Cobra is almost more violent than the villains and usually results in overkill. One example, he throws a knife into a bad guys heart and then proceeds to shoot him 5 or 6 times.
Also has one of the best "person being hit by a van" scenes ever.
Still don't know why he cuts a slice of pizza in half with scissors.
"This is where the law stops and I start."
Echos of Red Dawn in that it emphasizes an importance on rugged individuality, small town pride, lightly anti-government/law and the notion that terrorism can strike in any grocery store. Definitely had some up points, definitely had some low points.
The only thing wrong with Cobra is that it isn't longer.
This movie has some of the best lines you will hear in any movie! =D
