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.

I've grown up with anime and I still watch it to this day. I heard of the manga and show of Space Adventure Cobra but I did not know there was a movie till recently. This movie is only for those who like anime, this in no way will convince people that are not into this stuff to start watching it.
The feel of this movie is a ton like others like Golgo 13: The Professional, which is a good thing for a action fan. The atmosphere in this movie is extremely 80's and the plot can be a bit weird at times, but this does not create much of a problem because it adds to the bizarreness of the galaxy the movie takes place in. This film does contain brief nudity, so if your weird-ed out by that sort of stuff then you have been warned.
All in All, this movie is a good action flick in its own universe and is worth a watch.
