From time to time basically I think of a few movies that I have seen. So I am doing a guilty pleasure section I have done it before , There were those 2 film that comes in to mind. Now remember the 80’s action movies oh!!! yeah I remember them. 2 movies come in mind Cobra and Raw deal . I will go with the first one.
A film by : George P. Cosmatos.
Cast : Sylvester Stallone, Brigitte Nielsen, Reni Santoni .
Lieutenant Marion Cobretti aka Cobra (Sylvester Stallone), is a cop who takes the jobs where others can’t handle. The cops call them when they can’t handle the jobs or it gets too dangerous. When a serial killer known only as The Night Slasher kills in Los Angeles, Cobra is on his trail. They do not care what his method are as long as they get the job done. His car a 1950 mercury does not get nay cooler than that, license plate” awesome 50″ a pair of mirror blue sunglasses (I had a pair back in the 70’s) a gun with a cobra on the handle and a machine gun. Now that’s what I call a cop. Now a witness turn up and the serial killer needs too shut her up. He sent a motorcycle gang after them.
Here is an Guilty pleasure movie that kick ass. gun, fight car chase, fighting, blood, and a pile of bodies that you never seen in any action movie. What gets me in this film is that the serial killer sent a motorcycle gang after the cop and the witness played by Brigitte Nielsen , Cobra kills them one after one I think I counted at least 35 of them. And more kept coming of course no one runs out of ammunition if they do it is a few minutes later. The stunts are awesome cobra does an 180 with his car hangs out a gun out of the window and kills a few people then drives in reverse and shoot some more. Cool action film I saw it 5 times now. It never gets old.
RAW DEAL (1986)
A film by John Irvin.
Cast : Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kathryn Harrold, Sam Wanamaker.
Mark Kaminsky ( Arnold Scharzenegger) is kicked out of the FBI for his rough treatment of a suspect. Damn I smell of a state of an action film. He now is the sheriff of a small town in North Carolina. what of a drag. But wait there is more , FBI Chief Harry Shannon, whose son has been killed by a mobster named Patrovina, tells Kaminsky take care of Patrovina with a promise of reinstatement into the FBI. Guess what not a problem there buddy I will take care of it. He must go under cover and join them in order to well you know llii them all.
Well sly gets cobra out in 1986 so Arnold decide to get his own version in 1986. The competition is on. What i like is that the mafia operate a illegal gambling casino under the Albterton hotel. Not even the cops notice that one. There is a romance in this movie with the actress Kathryn Harrold Who plays a gambler in debt with the mob. The body count is a little less than Cobra and Arnold has some funny lines at times. Cars chase fight, dun fire blood all over the place you get the point. I saw that one 3 times and it never gets old. I love those 80’s action film.
