When a cult begins committing a rash of murders, the LAPD are forced to turn to one of their detectives who goes to the very edge of the law and beyond.
Clocking in at just under 90 minutes, Cobra is a movie with even less fat than its famously muscled star. Essentially a Dirty Harry for the 80s, it features the standard "The law isn't always justice" cop who shows his milquetoast superiors how it's done. Stallone awkwardly tries to graft a sarcastic edge to his match chewing, sunglasses wearing monosyllabic avatar, but the quips fall flatter than a 14th century globe. Paired with wife Brigitte Nielsen--who's not exactly Meryl Streep, but better than you'd think--he scowls and shoots his way to the final showdown with the main villain, played with an unnerving intensity by Brian Thompson (you may not know the name, but you know the face). Honestly he's the best thing about the movie, and I only wish there'd been more of him.
As crime runs rampant in the United States, the hard-as-nails LAPD Lieutenant, Marion "Cobra" Cobretti, is the only cure for the crime-infested urban jungle of Los Angeles. In the meantime, a string of seemingly unconnected and unmotivated random assaults on civilians will soon drag the hardened officer into a violent war against the psychopaths of the secret organisation named "The New World". With the criminal society's sole purpose to weed out the weak, Cobra will escort an important witness--the young model, Ingrid--out of town to protect her; however, the movement's delusional killers will stop at nothing to track her down. Now, the only one who stands in their way is the one-man-army Lieutenant. Are they prepared for Cobra's nasty bite?
