Return to Cobra (thing)
|Cobra is also the name of one of the worst - there are many to choose from, mind you - movies by and with Sylvester Stallone. Playing a very violent cop, Sly goes around killing people and delivering one-liners such as |
You're the disease. Meet the cure.or something like that. Stallone's then wife, danish Brigitte Nielsen co-starred. Cobra is loosely based on the novel Fair Game by Paula Gosling - also made into a movie with Alec Baldwin and Cindy Crawford - and also on the script for Beverly Hills Cop, where Stallone was offered to play Axel Foley. Sylvester, if you're reading this: We're glad that you passed that one on to Eddie Murphy.
I haven't seen this flick since the late eighties, but as I remember it is so amazingly stupid it's funny. It has the kind of acting that you feel bad for the poor actors. The plot makes "any episode of "Starsky & Hutch" seem like Hemingway by comparison" as one review said and I can only agree. The characters, the dialogue, the plot and the whole production are so stereotyped and full of clichés that it's ridiculous.
