Audience Reviews for Operation Cobra
'Operation Cobra' (titled thus because Jackie Chan's Operation Condor came out the same year, and good ol' Roger Corman wanted to capitalize on that success) stars Don the Dragon Wilson as Kyle Conners, an Interpol agent who goes to India to track his partner's killer. Along the way, he gets caught up in international intrigue, and bangs some hot babes too, both Indian and plastic. This is one of Don Wilson's better efforts. I am going to go out on a limb and declare that this movie was just as much fun as 'Blood Fist II' or 'Black Belt.' Don is just Don here. He's terribly wooden as an actor, but what's great here is that the action is in full effect- it seems that every time he turns around, he's either dropkicking somebody or punching them in the stomach. The baddies are played to perfection: Rick Hill is hilarious, and Evan Lurie delivers a fantastic performance as the sidekick- plus, he gets props for having such a sweet ponytail. Speaking of tail, it's the best Wilson has gotten since Maria Ford in 'Black Belt' and 'Ring of Fire' I & II- scoring with not one, but three chicks- a nice little chick at the front desk who shows up in his bed naked, then he gets down with another in a waterfall, and gets some wet t-shirt action from her(Dipti Bhatnagar, Miss India), while Tane McClure is the plastic chick who is also a british agent(with obvious breast enhancements and granny panties). All in all, while it's nowhere near the level of an 'Armor of God II:Operation Condor,' the film has an international feel that is rare for C level movies like this. What blew me away most about this movie was that they felt it warranted a director's commentary. Don't get me wrong, Fred Olen Ray (director of Wilson's 'Capitol Conspiracy') is full of interesting little tidbits of info (this was, apparently, the first American movie filmed completely in India, Don doesn't like to look weak or get hit in movies, etc...). You may like this, you may not. If you're a Wilson fan like me, rent it.
