Fun Indiana Jones knock off from Antonio Margheriti
18 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The always great pairing of John Steiner and David Warbeck under the skilled direction of Antonio Margheriti produces yet another enjoyable action yarn here in the mold of Raiders Of the Lost Ark.

The plot concerns our heroes search for a priceless sacred ornament (the golden cobra of the title) which if it should fall into the wrong hands could potentially bring about world instability via its potential political, not to mention magical (!) ramifications.

As we've come to expect from Margheriti, there's a fair bit of action on display here with some nice set pieces on offer, often utilising the directors trademark miniature work.

Steiner is on top form here especially to, playing the joyously stiff upper lipped, unflappable Brit as he does so well.

The film however is overall, in my opinion, not nearly as entertaining as the following years 'Ark Of The Sun God' (also directed by Margheriti) which reunited Steiner and Warbeck once more.

Still, for fans wanting a quick, lower key Indiana Jones style fix, you could do a lot worse than this.
