Cobra ★ 1986 (R)

A coldblooded cop protects a model from a gang of deranged killers. Lowbrow, manipulative action fare void of feeling. Truly exploitive, with little expression from the leads. Highlight is the extended chase sequence. Based on the Paula Gosling novel “Fair Game,” which was remade under the book's title (and in a more faithful adaptation) in 1995. 87m/C VHS, DVD . Sylvester Stallone, Reni Santoni, Bri gitte Nielsen, Andrew (Andy) Robinson; D: George P. Cosmatos; W: Sylvester Stallone; C: Ric Waite; M: Sylvester Levay.
