Cobra Woman is a super-fantastic melodrama backgrounded on a mythical island that might exist somewhere in the Indian Ocean. Elaborately and colorfully mounted for constant eye-appeal, and with the starring trio of Maria Montez, Jon Hall and Sabu, picture unfolds at fast pace to concentrate on action features of the tale.

Plot combines jungle-island romance with melodramatic complications, temple rituals, chases and fights. Montez is kidnapped on eve of wedding to Hall and carried back to an island where her twin sister rules ruthlessly as high priestess and preys on religious superstitions of the natives to keep latter under control. Hall follows his betrothed to the forbidden island, accompanied by native boy (Sabu) to rescue Montez.

Montez is decidedly shapely as sarong-draped native girl and dazzlingly gowned as the high priestess. She handles the dual assignment very well. Hall and Sabu are typed in regular characterizations.
