    At heart, King Cobra compellingly traces the palpable tension between the performative nature of gay porn and the privacy of queer shame.

    Movies don’t get much juicier, funnier, creepier, sadder, or smarter than writer-director Justin Kelly‘s King Cobra.

  • John Fink

    King Cobra is a lurid piece of business that, at times, goes gleefully over the top while lacking the kind of gut punch you might expect in the film’s third act.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Graham Fuller

    Justin Kelly’s King Cobra bears the distinction of being the first optimistic black comedy set in the world of gay porn production that’s also extremely classy.

  • Nico Lang

    King Cobra is a movie that’s just good enough to make you wish it were even better.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    King Cobra is a cut above most homoerotic masturbatory screen fantasies, but not by much.

  • John DeFore

    Kelly spends so long establishing these two relationships, looking at the gifts and the internet fame and the inevitable possessiveness, that he has little time for the developments that might've turned a better paced version of this story into a true-crime nailbiter.

  • Stephen Holden

    To say it feels reasonably authentic doesn’t mean it’s very good. Mr. Kelly, who directed the well-received “I Am Michael,” starring Mr. Franco as a Christian pastor with a gay past, clearly knows the territory, but he barely skims the surface.

    The unique setting aside, there's just not much to sink your fangs into.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    King Cobra is all smut and no soul, a tacky, superficially titillating reunion between Franco and “I Am Michael” director Justin Kelly.

    It’s difficult to find a reason for the film's existence beyond a spoiled platform for James Franco's ersatz boldness.
