King Cobra Reviews
Ever wonder what "Jaws" could have been like if a less talented director was behind the project. If the studio backing the film did not provide the comparatively ridiculous amounts of funding and just left the film to die. Ever wonder how much less intriguing the film would have been without all those good actors? Well, King Cobra may be the film for you.
From the first person point of view, to the score, even down to the actually plot itself; King Cobra draws heavily from histories first summer blockbuster, almost to the point of copying. With the picture drawing so much from Jaws, it's easy to see just how great that movie truly is; everything here feels amateurish at best in comparison.
The film does have some interesting aspects. The titular snake for example is not CGI, it's good ol fashion puppetry, which isn't particularly believable but is a nice little treat, especially when you consider the boring alternative of a snake made from 1's and 0's. Secondly, Pat Morita best known as Mr. Miyagi, plays a major role in this picture, and although his acting is nothing special here, his is clearly the high point of the cast.
It has it's moments, but it's derivative nature ensure this one won't appeal to anyone other than those unusually interested in cheap B movies.

Note to self: A beer festival is way too important to worry about the lives of innocent civilians.
Is Eric Strada as a gay man organizing the brew-fest supposed to be funny?
