You want an 80's movie - this is the one!
D. Strub
Too bad this movie had such a dumb name, and is admittedly kinda dumb in some other ways.
King of Controversy
Great movie if you like lots of action and violence.

This is a classic Sylvester Stallone action movie. It's one of the best he ever made. Cobra was mostly known for the number of people killed during the movie. It far exceeded any previous record for an action movie...bordering on the comical. Some of the things you'll remember... The match he keeps in his mouth. His awesome gun. His Mercury which is painfully destroyed during the movie. And the most memorable moment is when he meets up with "Night Slasher" (Brian Thompson) at the end and gets an earful about the judicial system. "They'll say I'm insane. Won't they...PIG!?" If ever there was a classic piece of film it's this encounter. Me and my friends still joke today about how spittle and sweat comes from his mouth when he says, "PIG!". It's hilarious. That alone is worth owning this movie. In all, it's typical of 80's action films. Sylvester's films always seem to have a fair amount of cheese in them. It's a given. At the same time tho, they don't make films like this anymore. The days of the action hero seem over, but they can be relived with movies like Cobra.

Things I learned from watching Cobra:

Stock brokers, thugs, burglers, weight-lifters and other various and sundry folks like to meet in abandoned warehouses and clink axes together in unison thinking of the "new world"

If you're stabbing an innocent woman by the side of the road, don't get caught so easily

Scissors are great for cutting pizza

The killers of the New World are willing to blow up an entire town, kill people in all ways imaginable, create huge attention trying to avoid attention...?

Cobra can bump his 1950 Merc into a bunch of cholos and get away with it unlike today where he'd get his head blown-off

Shopping carts bounce into the air when you shoot them with shotguns

If you're robbing a grocery store, destroy all the produce and canned products and shopping carts using up your ammo right away then shoot a kid wearing a Raiders hat who you promise to let go free

There was a time when Brigitte Nielsen looked damn good

"Call the Cobra" should be a standard cliche when psychos take over grocery stores

A guy walking around a hospital with bizarre slicked back hair and a huge body-builder physique carrying a giant dagger with a conspicuously guilty face fits right into the hospital wards

Don't put too much catsup on your fries

If a woman ID's you committing a heinous murder, just dye your hair and that changes everything!

If you're inside a grocery store during a hostile takeover trying to free the hostages, reach for a Coors!

When Stallone was making "Cobra" he was at the top of his game. He was just coming off of making "Rocky 4" and "Rambo: First Blood part 2". Stallone had great intentions while making "Cobra", in fact there was even a sequel planed for the film. The sequel never was made, due to mixed reviews.

"Cobra" is about Lieutenant Marion 'Cobra' Cobretti, (Stallone) he works on the "zombie squad", where he does all the jobs that nobody wants to do. He knows all the bad guys in town.
Cobra is assigned to the case of bringing down the "night slashers". While the night slashers are out and about one night, Ingrid, a model (Brigitte Nielsen) was driving home from work and witnesses the night slashers committing a murder.
Now, after seeing the night slashers face, Ingrid is in great danger, so she is put under the protection of Cobra and his partner Sergeant Gonzales.

"Cobra" is a very good 80's action film. Stallone did a good job acting and writing the screen-play for the film.
If you are a fan of 80's action films or Sylvester Stallone you should greatly enjoy this film.

After rewatching COBRA after an interval of many years, I didn’t know whether to rate it one star, because it’s so ridiculously, God-awfully silly, stupid and over-the-top…or to rate it five stars for that exact same reason. So I compromised and gave it three.

Marion “Cobra” Cobretti would hate me for that. He doesn’t like compromise.

In fact, Marion “Cobra” Cobretti doesn’t like much of anything, except chewing on matchsticks, driving his 50s muscle car, and mowing down criminals like a drunken redeck knocking tin cans off a fence with a machine gun. Who is Marion “Cobra” Cobretti, you ask? Well, if Clint “Dirty Harry” Eastwood and Charles “Death Wish” Bronson had a baby, and that baby was Godfathered by Arnold “Commando” Schwarzenegger, the answer would be Marion “Cobra” Cobretti, the head (and seemingly almost the only member of) The Zombie Squad, an LAPD detective unit called in when wishy-washy nonsense like Miranda and the Bill of Rights fail. And at the film’s opening, Cobra (Sylvester Stallone) is called in to deal with a psycho who has just shot up a grocery store at Christmas. This displeases Cobretti’s immediate boss, wishy-washy Monty (Andrew Robinson), who knows where Cobretti goes, a litter of spent shell casings and bloody corpses will follow. But F Monty and those bleeding heart liberal reporters, because the truth is that crime is a disease, and Cobra is the cure – so he tells the psycho before first stabbing and then finally riddling him with bullets. Afterwards, the reporters ask if “this killing had any connection to the Night Slasher case.” Monty says no, which of course means that there IS a connection to whatever the hell the Night Slasher case may be, and that the Cobra will soon discover what it is.
