80's Action Stars Battle Slashers in 10 TO MIDNIGHT & COBRA!


As much as it pains me to say it Vault Dwellers, I have never seen 10 TO MIDNIGHT. This is a real tragedy because I love Charles Bronson and I love slasher flicks! I vow to remedy this injustice as soon as possible. (This weekend maybe?) COBRA on the other hand I am quite familiar with - looks like it's time to upgrade from my old DVD (which is nestled in one of those awful cardboard snap-cases that never really caught on).

While I'm already convinced that I need both of these Blu-ray discs, maybe those of you reading this post are on the fence? Well if that's the case, let's take a closer look at both releases!

10 TO MIDNIGHT (1983)

Synopsis: Charles Bronson is "a hero all the way" (Variety) as a rogue cop pursuing a deranged killer in this action-packed suspense/thriller. Serving up vigilante justice as only he can, Bronson delivers one of his most riveting performances in this exceedingly well-made film.

Bronson plays Leo Kessler, a cynical Los Angeles cop on the trail of Warren Stacy (Gene Davis), a homicidal maniac who turns rejection from beautiful women into the ultimate revenge. When the legal system sets Stacy free, Kessler plants evidence to put him behind bars for good. But Kessler's plan backfires, leaving him with only one option: to hunt down Stacy on his own ... before the crazed killer can strike again!

COBRA (1986)

Synopsis: Lt. Cobretti (Sylvester Stallone) is a one-man assault team whose laser-mount submachine gun and pearl-handled Colt .45 spit pure crime-stopping venom! Director George P. Cosmatos (RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II, TOMBSTONE, LEVIATHAN, OF UKNOWN ORIGIN) teams up again with Stallone for this thriller pitting Cobretti against a merciless serial killer.

The trail leads to not one murderer but also an army of psychos bent on slashing their way to a "New Order" – and killing a witness (Brigitte Nielsen) along the way. Fortunately, her protector is Cobra, a man who delivers vigilante justice like no other!

  1. Sylvester Stallone's Cobra and Charles Bronson'10 to Midnight vs Clint Eastwood's Tightrope. Which is better?

    1. I still have yet to see 10 To Midnight and Tightrope (yeah yeah, I know... I know...) so I cannot comment further. COBRA is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine, though I haven't seen it in years.
