So we know that Stallone both wrote and acted in the film, but perhaps that wasn't all because Cobra is one of these films that joins the likes of Poltergeist, Return of the Jedi and Tombstone in that rumours persist about who really directed the film.
In keeping with Cannon Films' modus operandi during the 1980s, Cobra is a cheap, bloody film that's not far removed from the typical Death Wish sequel in that it features its violent protagonist (here an officer of the law instead of a vigilante) going up against one-dimensional villains whose only goals are bloodshed and carnage (though at least here it's explained that they want to create a new world order based on survival of the fittest - yeah).
