Cobra ★★★★

This probably deserves Die Hard status.

I believe the rumors that this was ghost-directed by Stallone, it has the same over-the-top, highly saturated exhibitionist displays of bravado as Rocky IV. This movie is a slasher film with many killers, but Cobra is the kill-iest of them. Light reflects off the rain and everything metal glistens, guns burst like fireworks, Pollack splatters of blood and bullets fill the screen with flurries of punches washed under the Mann-like luster of a neon sign for Pepsi.
