Goofs

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.

One of the best stuff for a growing kid
28 March 2004 | by Tony_HedlundSee all my reviews

This I tell you, is something for kids in the beginning of their teens, of how the future is about. Yes, it's SciFi, but it's oh sooo cool. atleast when you're a kid..

I still remembered when I was a little dorky little kid, I adore this movies.. Hey, at the age of 10yrs of age, DO NOT FEEL ASHAME!!!! It's friggen natural! I know I didn't feel any realness at that age, and I was set aside, a little under developed when compared to other kidz, when it came to anim cartoons. DO NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT ANY DUDE SAYS! You need this if you're anything like me, a fututristic designer, a dreamer, someone who has a feeling for design in a futuristic maner.. This thing is for your own development! Believe me... I'm one of you guys...
