Please Hammer, don't hurt 'em!
25 August 2005 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

After blowing away a drug dealer, Lt. Robert Malone (Fred "The Hammer" Williamson) is sent to Manila to cool his easy tempered jets as part of a "deal worked out between our Government and INTERPOL." Naturally, Malone finds himself right in another mess when, minutes after arriving in the Philippines, a pickpocket steals his wallet. Teaming up with INTERPOL agent Kevin McCall (Nicholas Hammond), Malone sets out to find his wallet but gets mixed up with the pickpocket's daughter, a group of crazed terrorists looking for microfilm (aren't they all?) and school children held hostage.

Fans of Fred Williamson might end up hammering their heads against the wall if they check this cheesy Italian buddy cop variation. The film opens with what can only be described as a "unique" chase. Williamson confronts a motorcycle riding drug dealer in a parking garage, chases him down the street to another parking garage, loses him on the Chicago L entry way but finally catches back up to him in another parking garage where Williamson proceeds to nearly blow his head off (the film's best and goriest effect) with his pistol. Yes, more parking garages than you can shake a stick at. Sadly, it is downhill from there. The plot is particularly muddled, containing something about terrorists wanting microfilm (what it contains is never explained) from the pickpocket's daughter Peggy, who naturally isn't aware she has it. For the most part the film follows the clichéd LETHAL WEAPON routine until the end where a bit of DIE HARD is thrown in for good measure.

Regardless of the lack of plot, the film does have an unusual charm. Financed by the Italy based Imagine company, BLACK COBRA 2 provides a few laughs through its dubbing and horrid dialogue. Upon learning of her father's death Peggy reminisces, "I couldn't stand the stories he used to tell me but now how I wish I could hear them again." Later she performs one of the most embarrassing "seductive" musical numbers ever captured on film. And you haven't lived until you see Williamson lured into performing a native Philippine dance ceremony. The last third of the film is probably the best section, with Williamson (who appears to have done all his own stunts) blowing away lots of bad guys to some of the most insane 80s guitar riffs. As always, Williamson is his charismatic, cigar chomping self and carries what little of the film there is. Fans of down and out casting should take note of Nicholas Hammond (Yes, Frederick Von Trapp himself) as Malone's partner.
