Black Cobra – Budget Unknown – 1 hour and 25 minutes
Robert Malone follows his own rules. His Sargent instructs him to tell hostage-takers that all their demands will be met in order to let the hostages go. When Robert enters the crime scene, the tells the criminals they are getting nothing and starts shooting. Robert kills all the hostage-takers and the hostages are safe. While Robert gets results and his boss hates his methods, he puts Robert on Elys’s case. When Elys came home after working in her photography studio, she noticed a commotion across the street. She went to investigate and was horrified when her neighbor came out bleeding from the neck. Her neighbor fell and died. When Elys looked up she saw the Bandit Leader. Thinking quickly on her feet, she used her camera to take pictures and blind him. She ran straight to the police. Although her photos are useless, Elys is in danger. The Leader thinks she has his picture and she witnessed his crime. They are after her and Robert is after them.
Inspired by Cobra, this movie is full-on suspense with lackluster dialog and disjointed backing track (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). Your disbelieve in this gang’s ability to care about any human life will grow with each horrible act. No matter if it’s rape, murder, or torture, they will do anything to anyone. Each act becomes more heinous and methodical with every new scene. While the bad guy does his job, the other performances fall flat in comparison. Hopefully, it will get better in part two.
I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars
They’re scum. Human garbage – Robert
Sure we always wind up doing what you want anyway – Allen
What’s the matter, little girl. Sight of blood bothers you – Bandit Leader
I didn’t think you’d be such a grouch – Elys
