Cobra ★★★★

Stallone, always the self made loner who rises above all holding a free pass for destruction, puts his muscle in uniform. Also is that terrible music over the pizza scissors moment Amy Grant? Why, Sly, why. At least, in giving us Cobra, he also gave us Eddie Murphy as the Beverly Hills Cop! Featuring Brian Thompson at his wildest, Brigitte Nielsen 100% supermodel and Stallone completely into himself. The story takes its time and feels long, not unlike Rocky I guess, but it’s a trip through the late, great gritty 80’s with a freaky bad guy and fiery takedown.
