Eric R (kr) wrote: Wasn't Sylvester Stallone's "Cobra" bad enough? Did we really need a cheap Italian knock off of it? No we didn't but none-the-less the Italians thought it enough to rip it off and change the title just a bit to reflect its main star, cult icon Fred Williamson.The plot is exactly like "Cobra". Sadistic gang going around brutally killing people for no apparent reason: check. Hot babe witnesses a murder and gets away without first seeing the face of the gang leader: check. Tough as nails cop assigned to protect her from the gang: check. Gang tries to murder the witness while she is in the hospital: check. Car chases: check. As you can see this is just "Cobra" with a lower budget and bad dubbing.The main reason to see this film is for cult icon Fred Williamson but even he seems bored with the premises. He seems tired and wore out as the fight scenes are really poorly staged. He isn't even to get his likeable charm to shine through the silted dialogue as lines like "I'd do it even if it was Santa Clauses' daughter" come out more head ache inducing than unintentionally funny.Director Stelvio Massi directed some decent Poliziotteschi films in the 70s but again like many of his director brethren his output in the 80s degrades to the Z-grade action level as this is a far cry from his superior 70s offerings. His directing just seems cheap and shoddy with poor zooms and pans. I understand he was working with nothing for a budget but he did nothing to try to heighten up the look of the film.The worst part perhaps is the god damn score. We get one fucking piece, the same piece played over the opening credits, and it is the only piece of score played throughout the entire picture. That would be fine if it was a catchy, likeable score but it's not so it gets annoying really fast.Like almost every other poliziotteschi film released in the 80s, "Black Cobra" weaves just above the line of god-awful and isn't even that fun for unintentional laughter. Williamonson looks bored and the directing is uninspired. For an Italian low-budget knock off this should have been a lot more fun than it was. Two sequels did follow (The Black Cobra 2, Black Cobra 3: Manila Connection) which are both MUCH better than this one. A fourth film entitled "Detective Malone" was also released but it was just a movie filmed around stock footage of Williamson from the first 3 films.Bonus Rant: It was enough to rip-off "Cobra" but the writers decided also to lift some dialogue from "Dirty Harry". During the final gun battle, Willaimson's Malone character has the balls to say a slightly changed version of Dirty Harry's famous dialogue of how many bullets did he fire and if the thug feels lucky. Come on guys!Note: The "Black Cobra" trilogy has fallen into public domain here in the United States and to be honest most of the releases are pure crap as they cram all three films onto a single layer DVD. The least crappy DVD release of these films is the triple feature from Diamond Entertainment which has all three films spread out on two discs, the second disc being dual layered so that means one film per layer! The transfer of the first "Black Cobra" though is still from a poor VHS source so only the most forgivable cult film fanatics, like me, are encouraged to hunt this DVD set down.

After seeing BELLY OF THE BEAST, I can say that this is probably as close as we're going to get. I was actually excited about watching this one, mainly because it was directed by the great Ching Siu-Tung (aka Tony Ching), the guy who directed the fabulous ninja epic DUEL TO THE DEATH and choreographed films like HERO and John Woo's A BETTER TOMORROW II. It's rare that Seagal gets paired with a competent filmmaker, especially one that can make him look good during a fight scene given his frequent, painfully obvious use of stunt doubles these days, however Ching makes Seagal look as good as he possibly can, given his weight and his poor choice of wardrobe. A lot of the filmmakers Seagal works with now make the poor choice of speeding up the film to make Seagal look faster than he really is, however Ching instead uses a lot of slow motion, which works a lot better, even though he tends to overuse it at times. The movie opens with a breathtaking action scene that's both awesome and mildly horrifying at the same time, and while the movie tends to drag in places, the action is always interesting, even when it gets extremely silly (I'm thinking of the fight scene with the whip-wielding tranny in high heels). They run from gritty and cool (the opening) to flat-out stupid, but they never cease to be entertaining. The movie also employs evil Taoist wizards in the plot, which scores it a few more points in my book, you don't see those much outside of movies like THE BOXER'S OMEN. I'll be very surprised if I see a DTV Seagal flick that's better than this one (but it's not a "good movie"), it's one that casual fans of action movies can probably enjoy on some level, given they can make it through some of the cornball moments that you have to suffer through here and there.
