Trece, an athlete just trying to keep his head down and do his time, makes some deadly enemies. Now he has to fight to survive.
Directed by Lon Lopez
In the spirit of “Robot Chicken”, “Team America: World Police” and “Thunder Birds”, C.O.B.A.L.T. is a true action figure action movie. Producers Lon Lopez and Rob Wilson craft a tale of plastic animated action in the story of Agent True as she recounts her first day one the job, hunting down a terrorist cell. Done in painstaking traditional stop motion, C.O.B.A.L.T. is a good, old fashioned action movie if acted by action figures.
Directed by Adam Newacheck
