    ★★★

    Holiday 2021 viewing. Yes folks, Cobra is technically a Christmas movie and that's all the excuse I need to revisit it on the Shout Factory Blu-ray. It's not a great movie but I love it all the same.

    Original review:
    This pure slice of 1980's action cheese was directed by George P. Cosmatos and stars Sylvester Stallone as the ridiculously named L.A. cop Marion "Cobra" Cobretti, which certainly does not at all sound contrived simply so they could call this…

    John Carpenter's legendary masterpiece of suspense still holds up even against a glut of more graphic and larger budgeted imitators.

    Underrated and largely forgotten cold war thriller is worth seeing for the great cast which includes Gene Hackman and Tommy Lee Jones and for the skillful direction of Andrew Davis who is adept at crafting suspenseful films packed with plenty of nifty twists and turns. Intelligently plotted, lots of action and an exciting and satisfying climax, what more could you ask for?
