Another very welcome DVD release, Cobra Woman stars Universal Studio's wartime siren Maria Montez in one of her most exotic roles.
Of course, films like this should be viewed in the context of their time, and from the viewpoint of their original audience. The fantasy world of Cobra Woman in which twin sisters, good and bad, vie for control of a tropical island complete with a rumbling volcano (Fire Mountain is angry is a line oft repeated) is also one where in the space of 68 minutes good triumphs resoundingly over evil with the main characters looking forward to a life of unparalled bliss.

Universal studios specialized in the "B" movies, horror and musicals mainly, which kept cinemas busy throughout the war years, but for the Maria Montez starring vehicles they invested considerably. The Technicolor photography is very good, lush and brilliant - just what was needed in a drab war torn world. We probably can't imagine at all the impact Technicolor must have had on wartime audiences, whose daily routine was only punctuated by visits to the movies where films like Cobra Woman represented a real escape from daily anxieties and troubles.

Don't look for art, hidden meanings, or any great depth - just enjoy Cobra Woman on its own terms and you'll have another fun afternoon's viewing. Everything about Cobra Woman is attractive - the stars, Maria's gloriously over the top wardrobe. Sabu contributes an appealing performance too as the Jon Hall's "pal"!

Recommended without reservation. The DVD print is as close to perfect as you could get, and an amusing extra is the original thatrical trailer.

I have been waiting for a release of this movie for years after reading about it-and it is even better than I hoped- this is pure escapist fun-Universal's technicolour queen Maria Montez stars with Jon Hall and Sabu and Lon Chaney Jr and of course CoCo the chimp!-Montez & Hall are due to be married on an idylic island until Montez is kidnapped & taken to the forbidden island of her birth where her evil twin sister rules as the high-priestess cobra woman-sacrificing natives to stop the islands volcano from erupting! Watch Montez do her deranged dance of the snakes-the camp highlight of the movie-this movie is great Saturday morning/Sunday afternoon adventure entertainment & is a fantastic print. You will believe you are on a South Seas island-even though it was filmed next to the Pacific Coast Highway in California! This movie is completely over the top & you will love it for that-it's also a great price at under £6-ENJOY!

In a sense, COBRA WOMAN can be seen as the best movie ever made. Siodmak would go on to make dubious noir melodramas, but COBRA WOMAN also features a script by the young Richard Brooks, and, of course, the radiant Maria Montez. I haf spoken!

Nice to have this on a budget label though I wouldn't pay a great deal as the running time is only 67mins. The technicolour print is gorgeous with on the the odd stray speckle here and there.

The film is a general Universal jungle drama masquerading as a pseudo horror, with its Universal Horroresque title, and Lon Chaney (Jr, that is) is given his usual special "and" billing in the credits - sadly he is not given any mention on the front or back of the DVD cover desite being the most recognisable name in the cast. On the whole good value for money lovely transfer, and a fairly enjoyable romp.

Great title sequence! The music, the golden Cobra Throne, the green smoke...! Unfortunately what follows is the blandest of bland jungle adventures. Maria Montez, Jon Hall and Sabu have all done better and are totally wasted in this movie. I wont tell you what happens because the slight plot will be too easily given away and I don't want to spoil it for you in case you are foolhardy enough to waste money on this lack-lustre effort from Universal Studios. A real "nothing" experience..believe me! Even Lon Chaney Jnr can't save it from it's terminal tedium.

In it's favor, the print is gorgeous. Sharp image and beautiful colour.... but the dvd has no extras.
