A tough-on-crime street cop must protect the only surviving witness to a strange murderous cult with far-reaching plans.
When Sylvester Stallone was on set, he was in fact literally directing the film with George P. Cosmatos acting as the on set Director. Stallone literally mapped out and planned alot of the shots including the speech where Brian Thompson calls Cobra "a pig". Stallone said to him "For your close up, I want you to drink as much water as you can so we can see your spit on camera". Cosmatos would just agree with Stallone with everything he wanted to do and stay out of his way.
In America, there's a burglary every 11 seconds, an armed robbery every 65 seconds, a violent crime every 25 seconds, a murder every 24 minutes and 250 rapes a day.
The supermarket shooter at the beginning pulls his shotgun out from under his coat and racks it, ejecting a shell. There was no need to rack the shotgun if there was already a shell chambered.
There is uncut,about 2 hour long work print of Cobra. This work print contains many scenes not shown in any other versions. Almost all deaths scenes are longer and much more gorier,some characters have more dialogue or character development scenes(Ingrid's photographer friend,Cobra's partner Gonzalez,detective Monte and some others),action scenes are much longer with more violence and deaths (hospital attack and attack on Cobra's place,car chase,pick-up truck chase and final shootout) some parts of the movie have different music than the one heard in DVD versions.
