Yea, I know, the title sounds like an African American themed porn film, but "Black Cobra" is in fact an incredibly inept Italian-made late '80s action movie starring former NFL bad-ass/malt liquor pitchman Fred Williamson as "a maverick cop who plays by his own rules."

...basically what they did was rip off the Sylvester Stallone movie "Cobra" to an ASTOUNDING degree (even in the title!)-- but they did it on a budget of approximately six bucks and a broken cracker. Bad script, bad photography, howlingly bad acting and dialogue....damn.

Stallone's "Cobra" wasn't one of his best movies but this Italian "homage" makes it look like "Citizen Kane."

Watch only if you need to be bored to sleep.

The WRONG movie
R. Gray | Los Angeles, CA United States | 11/21/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yeah, I don't know if the people here can't read, or what the problem is. But all of these reviews are for the wrong movie. This is Black Cobra WOMAN. NOT Black Cobra. Two TOTALLY different movies.

Black Cobra Woman is a revenge flick starring the amazing Laura Gemser.
Black Cobra is a Cobra knock off starring Fred Williamson.

So none of these reviews have any merrit."

"Not ONE of the reviews listed here is for the movie pictured - the pictured film listed here is for one of the WORST Joe Damato films made, Jack Palance was out of his mind for appearing in it, and a total bust for fans of Laura Gemser- I know what you might be thinking, for this kind of $$, how bad can it be? Worse than you can imagine - and as for fans of Laura Gemser - DON`T DO IT. You have been duly warned..."
