YMMV / Cobra


  • Values Dissonance: The movie is very much a product of its time, having been made during the crime epidemic of the '80s, where there was much more tolerance for the idea of a cop who violated people's civil liberties. Thanks to all the high profile incidents of Police Brutality or cops killing unarmed suspects (especially minority suspects) in the decades since the movie was released, it'd be pretty hard for Cobra to be made nowadays.
