This cult classic brings back memories of the great exploitation films of the 80's. Stallone plays a take no prisoner cop Marion \"Ricco\" Cobretti aka COBRA who goes up against a group of crazed lunatics bent on tourturing a beautiful young model played by Brigitte \"Fuffy Fuffy\" Neilson. It was the cure to my boring week...a little bit of nestolgia...and ironically still prevelent in theme with topics going on today. Which makes me wonder if Cobra is a glimpse of the past or a frightening prediction of the future? You decide!
Perhaps we're pawns in an elaborate homage to excess and macho stupidity. It's purposefully - even wilfully - bad. Given that I can't prove that Simon West isn't actually that kind of wheels-within-wheels genius, he earns benefit of my doubt.
For those who thought you couldn't possibly gather more action stars under one banner, Mr. Stallone and company have proved you wrong and again with tongue in cheek humor often aimed at themselves, in grand fashion. Plot-wise, gadget-wise and of course explosion-wise, this yarn has set some new levels. For pure entertainment this is a must watch!
the first movie was great and i did not think the sequel would be better ( it was incredible) i couldnt have asked for a better action movie but here it is. it has more characters in it then the first one which makes it even more incredible and yes they all take part in the action.
