Space Adventure Cobra: The Movie is an anime film directed by Osamu Dezaki and is presented in 4K Ultra HD on blu-ray disc.
In a universe swarming with inhabited planets and bizarre aliens, corrupt governments operate in the pay of star-spanning criminal syndicates and the Justice Federation of United Galaxies places a price on the heads of hardened criminals.
The highest bounty of all rests with the infamous space pirate Cobra, an unstoppable rogue whose left arm conceals a devastating psycho-gun. Presumed dead for two years, Cobra comes out of retirement after an encounter with the beautiful bounty-hunter Jane - a decision which leads him into direct conflict with the sinister Galaxy Pirates, a vast criminal organization led by Crystal Bowie; the personification of death itself.
Together with his female android companion Lady, Cobra sets out with Jane to rescue the bounty-hunter's two lost sisters, and save the wandering planet Miras. But Crystal Bowie is never far behind, and deception and betrayal wait around every corner. A fast-moving, stylish and furiously inventive film from the pen of classic Manga writer Buichi Terasawa, Space Adventure Cobramixes humor and drama in a pulse pounding hymn to the power of love, death, and heavy weaponry!

Ratings & Reviews
4/5 Star Unique, Thrilling, and Gorgeous.
by Jonathan McNulty -
Comparable stylistically to many 70's and 80's sci-fi sci-fi anime, this film is unique in that it leans heavily into the gloriously ridiculous and over the top.
The 4K transfer is stunning, offering extremely sharp visuals for most of the film. Some occasional softness is most likely due to issues with the source material and does not detract from the viewing experience.
The real treat however is the HDR. This is a remarkably vibrant and colorful film and benefits incredibly from its presence, providing a bright, lush, and wonderfully rich feast for the eyes.
Japanese audio and English subtitle timing were fine with no issues to report.
This film may not be for everyone, but it's a sub-genre you enjoy and you have a 4K capable display and player, you absolutely owe it to yourself to experience this beautiful and thrilling blast from the past.
