overall this movie is pretty feeble. there are loads of this kind of movie around at the moment and this continues the trend of being rather bad. originality-what i think is the most important thing in any movie- i'd give about 25%. yes, it really is that bad.
the effects are poor too, escpecially all the cutting views of the snake when that man dies (that really fobs me off!) and the snake itself needs improvement. the tactic of keeping us from seeing the snake until near the end while not being original wroked quite well, it's a pity the snake itself is so disappointing. i expected better from this, perhaps i shouldn't have. it has 'made for tv' virtually written all over it. it really wouldn't be hard to find a better movie than this to waste your time. acting is awful, i can't name any of the actors at all, and above all this movie is forgetteable. the production design on the box is quite good though.
my view on this is if you are under ten or really, really bored rent this, but otherwise don't.

I am surprised to find that anyone thought this was a scary, well-acted, "carefully crafted" movie - their standards must be rather low. However giving King Cobra a low rating and being critical of its low-budget special effects, implausible action scenes and tired dialogue misses the fun: it's so bad it's good. Seeing Pat Morita seriously try to wrangle a giant snake, going mano a mano ("hand-to-hand") with the cobra spitting venom in his face, while Pat tries to subdue it using a pole is so lame one can only smile incredulously. Upon witnessing Pat saving the cobra's life from a shotgun blast only to then complain, "We've got to get that damn cobra before it gets one of us!" I could only shake my head. When no one bothers to watch where the giant snake slithers off to because they're too busy talking to each other about "the plan" I grinned at the director's failure to even try for believability. It helped that I found this movie in the bargain bin and that I drink alot.

King Cobra is one of the most enjoyable, well made independent horror thrillers that I've seen in years. For me, one of the most important elements of this type of film are the jump-scares and the directors have carefully crafted several in the film that are just great. I love the back story of Filmore and the microbrewery. Eric Estrada's bit part is hilarious. Knowing a fair bit about snakes, I can tell you that, almost all the details in the film about this 30 foot snake and how they go about capturing it are accurate. The way in which Hashimoto, the character played by Pat Morita cpatures/fights the snake is so cool. His wrangling sticks are completely accurate, just made larger for the size of the snake. It is obvious that someone did their homework and this accuracy make the film believable, scary and effective. Rent it, buy it. A must for any true collector of this genre. By the way, the filmmakers have a new horror/thriller coming out called Pinata - I checked out the website [...] recently - I can't wait for it to come out.

I don't understand it. This movie could be "Sssssss 2", a sequel to Richard Zanuck and David Brown's earlier film "Sssssss" starring a very young Dirk Benedict. That duos next movie project, by the way, was "Jaws". ...
King Cobra was better acted and had better special effects than "Sssssss" and the writer was obviously influenced somewhat by that earlier film. In this movie, a genetically altered Cobra/Rattlesnake hybrid escapes from a lab because of the head-researchers' "poor people skills" and goes on a killing spree two years later. It's up to Arnold from "Happy Days" to save the day by attempting to kick some serious snake butt, without using any karate moves at all. The scene where the overzealous hunters got their ... kicked by the snake was a hoot. And you can't miss Eric Estradas' cameo role as a... beer distributor. He was very good... maybe a little TOO good. The use of sudden bass drum effects were very well timed and had me literally jumping out of my seat, on more than one occasion! If you're in the mood for a different kind of cheesy monster movie with bits of good old fashioned humor, give this one a try.

King Cobra is a superb example of the cheap and nameless talentthat is currently riddling Hollywood. Occasionally i will sit back,relax, and view a good ol' fashioned straight to video film. Most of those times I am not sorely disappointed....boy was King Cobra an exception. This thing was so dull and stupid that i didn't even feel like making fun of it. When i saw this i was amidst friends, and as is common with friends and a [bad] movie we wanted to make fun of it. Unfortunately this thing is so horrendous that we didn't even have the usually overbearing desire to mock it. That's right, this movie isn't even good for people who love bad movies. I don't know who compared this to Anaconda, but to say that is giving the filmakers behind this atrocity of film way too much credit....WAY TOO MUCH! The fake looking Cobra (who sleeps on the ground, climbs trees, blinks, raises its eyebrows in recognition, and never flexes its neck, which remains in an L-shaped position at all times), the uber-lackluster acting, the horrible script and story, the worthless cinematography, and the stupid editing make this film a waste of time even for the most educated "bad film connoisseurs". Don't waste your money on this, don't listen to those reviewers that said it was great(because they are obviously part of the filmaking team)....
