Editorial Reviews

Determination and revenge fuel this action-packed quest for redemption with GREEN LANTERN'S Jeff Wolfe and MORTAL KOMBAT'S Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa!

Detailed Synopsis:
One man travels across the country, smuggling illegal black diamonds to sell in order to pay for his father’s pardon in South Africa. When he arrives in the United States to finalize what appeared to be a simple transaction, he is soon double-crossed and becomes caught up in a contraband operation forcing him to overcome an opponent far more lethal than any he has ever met.

T.J. Storm (real name Juan Ojeda) is sort of an oddity within martial arts cinema: despite rarely being cast as more than a minor supporting player in most movies (his biggest role to date was as a recurring sidekick on Conan the Adventurer), he's remained relevant and a minor fan favorite among the B-movie community for more than two decades. The fact that his very first solo vehicle here didn't come about until twenty-one years after his debut in the movie business is a shame, if only for the fact that he may no longer be in his physical prime, but the movie does nonetheless show that he can still be utilized in larger roles. "Black Cobra" is far from a perfect vehicle, but it is one of the better (very-)low budget vehicles I've seen in a while.

The story: on a quest to liberate his incarcerated father, a South African martial artist (Storm) travels to Los Angeles to secure the necessary legal funds, but runs into unexpected trouble in the form of the Japanese mafia...

The film's premise potentially sets the movie up as a derivative of Rumble in the Bronx, but this isn't really the case: the scope just isn't there, and even though Storm's character is a stranger to America, there are no awkward culture shock scenes to be had. Nevertheless, the movie isn't humorless, and this helps things immensely: after seeing some of the intro scenes' cheap camerawork, I expected the worst in the form of a cruddy backyard action flick that takes itself too seriously, but the script by Scott Donovan (adapted from Sebati Mefate's novel

3.0 out of 5 stars NOBODY MESSES WITH THE FAMILY JEWELS May 27, 2012
T.J. Storm stars in the title role. His chosen nickname is "Cobra" but somebody else has that so he becomes "Black Cobra." The nickname comes from his chosen style of martial arts known a "Cobra style Kung-fu." Cobra has diamonds stolen from a mine, or a mine that belongs to his family depending on your point of view. He smuggles them into the US with the intention of selling them on the black market as they have no providence. He wants to use the money for the noble cause of saving his father in prison by buying him a pardon...doesn't this guy do anything legal?

Black Cobra is engaged and doesn't fool around even when a pretty woman (Ogy Durham) offers him some cocaine. (Made the whole story unbelievable). Having once attended San Diego State, Black Cobra uses his contacts to arrange to sell the diamonds after a cliche Sensei-student session out in an open field.

If you read the story line, Cobra is double crossed and now goes after the bad guys to recover the diamonds/money. Except for the language, this could be a made for TV movie, it has that kind of quality. The script and dialouge was second rate, and the acting left something to be desired. The movie digresses to the expectation of South African martial arts vs. Japanese martial arts.

F-bomb, N-word, no sex or nudity. Brief cat fight.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Story, But Low budget July 7, 2013

Would have been a good movie, if it wasn't so dragged out. The story itself had a plot, but this movie would have not kept most people interested.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Action Flick June 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Well, I might be biased because my friend TJ Storm stars in this movie, but I thought it had a very good story line with some badass martial arts sequences! Overall, it was good entertainment and definitely worth renting. Not to mention that TJ is very easy on the eyes! Get some non-gmo popcorn, snuggle up and enjoy the film!

4.0 out of 5 stars Never heard of it December 9, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good b movie. Stars the bad guy from Mortal Kombat, the hero I have never seen before. He is a pretty good martial artist. Watch for the fight scenes, don't expect an Oscar winning movie.
