...an exciting, blisteringly-paced actioner that benefits substantially from Sylvester Stallone's engrossing work as the title character.

Cobra is a sleek, extremely violent and exciting police thriller.

Dated and unintentionally laughable, Cobra will always be best known for the catchphrase "You're a disease and I'm the cure." Ironically, any audience foolhardy enough to brave this ugly movie is liable to stagger out feeling mighty sick. [Blu-ray]

Every aspect of this film is reprehensible. Stallone's character is an empty hulk; the few attempts to provide us with little insights into his character are downright laughable.

It's fast-paced and full of gaudy action, yet it's thoroughly unsatisfying, largely because it's so lazy.

Sub-par Stallone shoot-em-up.

The body count is only somewhere in the high eighties -- and most of these are simply gunned down with a deplorable lack of invention.

An adequate no-brainer that does little to distinguish itself from the rest of Sly's action man back catalogue.

The film trades on the same technique used by books that attack pornography by printing examples of the dirty pictures. Cobra pretends to be against the wanton violence of a disintegrating society, but it's really the apotheosis of that violence.

I'll take 'Ludicrous Stallone Action Flicks From the Late 80s' for $500, Alex.

Worth seeing only in a "depressing time capsule" sort of way.
