Alternative Names: Space Adventure Cobra TV, COBRA THE ANIMATION
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Science Fiction
30th anniversary production of the manga, Space Adventure Cobra.
The setting may be futuristic but everything else is pure 1960's - the plot, the bad guys, the courageous but helpless babe and her humongous cleavage and most of all the hero with his gun-arm, his flowing red mane and the cigar that doesn't leave his mouth ... even when he's getting beaten up. It's just the kind of retro trash I need when I feel like turning off my brain.
A remake which maybe sticks a little TOO much to the original. It might be better to re-release the original series than just to simply do it again exactly as it was. Animation and story telling have improved alot it's a shame it's not here. Other remakes have done service to the old while making it seem new without compromise. On the other side, it's retro story which gives you a look at where we've have come from.
as a rule, i'm usually not enthusiastic about these series remakes. both characters & plot come off as one dimensional & the humor is typically inane and predictable. COBRA is not an exception. i think i'll pass.
