  1. patríciapinho's rating of the film King Cobra

    you: i want to build a time machine to 1943 to kill hitler and prevent the holocaust me, an intellectual: i want to build a time machine to 2006 and bring back zac efron so he can star as brent corrigan

  2. Cody Hoskins's rating of the film King Cobra

    Too silly and campy in a lot of scenes to be taken seriously as a true crime story, least of all in Franco and his screen partner's ridiculous over-acting and its underdeveloped story progressions. Slater plays everything with his natural edge in balancing the layers of a conflicted identity as a paternal and romantic figure for the young Brent Corrigan, who isn't played with as much depth to engage the story.

  3. José Neves's rating of the film King Cobra

    TV. Does James Franco, with his overdose of psychologism, only get into ridiculous and supposedly irreverent products? With the exception of Christian Slater, the main actors are laughable in this film, particularly Keegan Allen. Ah, and those slow motions!

  4. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film King Cobra

    2-2.5. Brent Corrigan, himself, is kind of a key issue here. He's a lying narcissist who never falls from his flaws, yet as a 'hero' he's wholly unlikeable. James Franco and Keegan Allen technically play a much more sympathetic, interesting pair of characters than our designated hero and victim. So the final answers to the questions raised by old men possessing young are, at best, morally mixed ones.

  5. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film King Cobra

    Despite having a juicy subject matter the film avoids throughout all its complexities and delivers a monotone accumulation of anodyne scenes, atrocious direction and gaytronica.

  10. Pablo Ramos's rating of the film King Cobra

    Actually, can I get another touch-up for my ass?

  11. adamjaymorris's rating of the film King Cobra

    It really says something about Hollywood when you can get Christian Slater, Alicia Silverstone, Molly Ringwald, and James Franco to take roles from one of the worst scripts ever to make it to the screen. I've seen better writing in real pornos. Worth it only for the (separate) gay sex scenes featuring Slater and Franco.

  12. ig_____or's rating of the film King Cobra

    I have seen porn films more subtle and well-paced than this crap. Just imagine this story as a decent gay porn noir/thriller in the hands of someone like Andrew Haigh and starring Zac Efron, giving all his body and soul in a dramatic role...

  13. wi.bi's rating of the film King Cobra

    i wish this is more than just a B-Movie. because i know Brent Corrigan. and this is just..... -__-

  14. east1999's rating of the film King Cobra

    Manages to be tackier than its source material.

  18. Diogo Xará's rating of the film King Cobra

    this gave me two erections so i give it two stars

  19. dave gunn's rating of the film King Cobra

    The film is nothing spectacular, and tells a true crime story that is really not all that interesting. I didn't find any of the acting or directing particular good. For what it's worth, it kept me watching, but this was almost made-for-TV-esque, and I find the lack of a single nude penis almost offensive.

  20. Pymo's rating of the film King Cobra

    Each man kill the things he love.

  21. Rocco's rating of the film King Cobra

    Allen, Slater and Clayton are all top notch, but the film itself looks cheap and Justin Kelly has no control over its tone. Franco's performance is just silly and the script occasionally dips into after school special style moral grandstanding. I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy myself, though!

  22. Daniel Roque's rating of the film King Cobra

    When the teaser is better than the whole package. Just like porn, this colorful, sweaty, dirrrty... wait. Porn is more colorful, sweaty and dirty than this. This is just shallow and emotionless. Garrett Clayton's sex face has more future in gay porn than hollywood movies.

  23. ionu's rating of the film King Cobra

    This is the exact mainstream formula of the indie-outrageous-violent-quirky movie. And the worst for it.

  24. Skinnedteen's rating of the film King Cobra

    I expected more from this film. The trailer looked like it was styled after Spring Breakers, but it ended up falling short on narrative and execution. Kelly tries to fit every detail from the book into a film that it feels rushed and calculated. Keegan Allen and James Franco's acting looks awkward and unconvincing.
