News & Interviews for King Cobra
Critic Reviews for King Cobra
King Cobra takes an interesting true crime and covers it in exploitative sex, pedophilic overtures and acting that would make a high school drama teacher cringe.
Though based on a true story, it's presented with none of a docudrama's ragged, lumpy oddity: the narrative is on the lean side, but as taut and burnished as the bodies it depicts.
King Cobra smells more like business plan than a movie.
Slater has some effective moments and Franco excels at a certain kind of scary/funny psycho, but it doesn't ultimately add up to much as either pulpy trash or exposé.
Audience Reviews for King Cobra
There were some structural issues that effected characterization, but ultimately this captured a certain mood and tone that seems real.
Christian Slater is really good and compensates for some poor performances by other actors (especially Alicia Silverstone), and the film uses an interesting structure (based on clever parallels) to develop its characters in a way that lets us grasp their motivations.
I continue to be impressed with the daring choices Franco makes in his career, including this movie of true-events murder set in the gay porn industry. But one wonders if in the telling of "King Cobra" -- with the notable exception of Christian Slater -- the acting is any better than in the pornographic films the film's subjects produced?
