One time during filming, Stallone complained to cinematographer Ric Waite that they are falling behind and that he should push his crew to work more and harder. Waite's answer on Stallone's order was quite surprising. He basically told Stallone that if he stops "playing around" on set with Brigitte, gets his hands off her ass and stops showing off to his bodyguards, maybe they wouldn't have problems with time. Although Stallone was shocked that somebody would talk to him that way, he did behave for about three weeks and then returned to his old ego fueled behaviour. Waite said in an interview that despite his huge ego Stallone had a great sense of humor and he also confirmed a famous rumour that Stallone was actually the one who was giving orders during filming and that he was the one who directed Cobra behind the scenes, because, in Waite's words, credited director of the movie George P. Cosmatos was a good producer, but bad director. See more »

First of all....to all the people who bash this film, I have one question for you. Did you see the cover? If after seeing the cover, Stallone with sunglasses an Uzi in his hand and a match in his mouth, and you still rented this and hated it you deserve what you get. If you want to watch "Masterpiece Theater" and pretend not to be bored then go ahead. Leave action movies for the fans of the genre.
This movie doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not. It's a violent, campy, 80's Stallone vehicle that is a lot of fun.
Cobra is a cool character with catchy one liners and an awesome 50 Merc Coup. He wears sunglasses and a match in his mouth. A rouge cop who works the zombie squad and is a lonely guy until he meets an aspiring model who he's been hired to protect.
If you dont like Stallone then this film will not change you're mind.
4 **** stars
Ps. The movie is an editing masterpiece. Edited by Don Zimmerman who edited "Being There"
