City cop is on the trail of a serial killer. Loaded with action and violence. Stallone fans will love this Rambo-like movie with Stallone on the chase instead of the run. Written by

In first cut of the movie, there was a slightly different version of confrontation scene between Nightslasher and Cobretti. Instead of more intense version that was ultimately used with more dialogue between Cobretti and Nightslasher, in earlier version Cobretti shows up right after Nightslasher screams "We are the future" and with relaxed, almost smiling look on his face he repeats the same line he said in the opening grocery store shootout scene "You're the disease, and i'm the cure". Instead of saying entire dialogue how murder is against the law and that Cobretti is gonna have to arrest him if he can, Nightslasher simply looks at Cobra with surprised, shocked look on his face and right when Cobra is about to shoot him Stalk appears and jumps on Cobra only to get shot by Nightslasher. There is a noticeable continuity mistake in final version of the scene though; when Stalk jumps on Cobra there is a fire behind him but in all previous shots of him holding the Nightslasher at gunpoint and saying his dialogue there is no fire behind him, that's because this scene was re-shot at different location.

When Cobra jumps his Mercury off the second floor garage, the Volare he's chasing suffers front end damage, with the hood folded up. In the next shot, the hood is flat again. See more »

This picture is classic 1980s action at its best and most cliche. My favorite scene is right at the top of the movie. Cobra is in a supermarket, on the trail of a guy who's killing safeway employees for fun. Cobra's in pursuit. He passes a 6-foot display case of Coors light. Stops. Cracks a can. Takes a sip. Tosses it on the floor. Continues in pursuit.
It reminds me of another 80s action flick few will remember called the Punisher with Louis Gossett Junior. Some dufus is carrying pizza into the torture chamber where LGJ is getting it. EXCEPT HE'S NOT GETTING IT, guys. He's already knocked the guy out with a punch and a pressure point maneuver. Then, Gosset neutralizes the pizza guy. But rather than let the pizza, which is all over the floor, go to waste, he kneels down, takes a couple of pieces, bites, then leaves the room as though nothing has happened.
I learned a lot from Cobra and Stallone's character, Marion Cobretti. First, I need to get a "nitro" option on my car so I can go as fast as he did. Second is a great line to reel in the girl, next time you're out on a date and she's using too much catsup on her fries.
"Do you have a lifejacket?" "Why" "To save all the french fries that are drowning."
This movie is a classic for 80s action lovers. I own the DVD and highly recommend it.
