The plot suffers an inconsistency in that Cobra/Johnson is supposed to have been on Earth goofing around for five years, yet is built like a muscleman. Anyone forced to adopt a new identity would know to give up their old habits and lifestyle; Cobra would have let himself go during the surgeries and before his memory was erased so as to look less conspicuous.

Only if you're into things so bad they make you laugh
15 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Reviewing the movie with any kind of seriousness is a fit indeed, because just thinking about it and how bad it is makes my stomach ache.

Who is this for anyways? With the soft-porn and beheadings it can't seriously be geared towards little children, yet it's so infantile and nonsensical that only crib dwellers are safe from offense.

Let's begin with the animation. I bet it's the missing work that any of the co-involved creators "forget" to include in their portfolio. Just shameful. It has everything about experimental work including but not limited to hastiness, lack of attention to details, lack of fluidity and color work by and for the blind (suggested viewing behind the safety of shades or a welders mask). And to think that the thing was released in 1982, not 1962. It reeks of "I couldn't care less" attitude.

Characters and story-wise... oh my god... how to even begin? It's just too much. OK, how's that- Imagine a soupy mess made up by, I don't know... a head-injured, schizophrenic, overly-lobotomized gelotophobe- does the image get through? I give up... let me just sum it so- I'd rather recommend watching the screen-saver over this.
