Nope. One person in the film had got so good at what they did the cobra was copying them (reflecting them)!

I enjoyed the 2010 version but the wax on, wax off scene has gone :( (now coat on, coat off) and the final fight scenes were poorly executed and contrived... To me the final fight was a huge disappointment... Dre should have been disqualified for the final head kick.

They could have done so much better...

The basic story running through the film was quite touching and cute...

Must now watch an earlier version...

Fist full film I've watched in years!

i think you will be even more disappointed with the 2010 version after watching the original

All I can say is the only Cobra I want to reflect in is of the AC variety!

this looks like the original, cheap as chips too.
It says 2005 but I think that refers to the DVD release, the film was released in 1984.
