Sometimes the title of a movie tells you everything you need to know about it. For example, “Dune” doesn’t explain very much. You would never know giant worms are a huge part of the story. On the other hand, “Snakes on a Plane” tells it all. In that vein we now have “Cocaine Bear” and no mystery here this about a black bear who gets into some cocaine and the mayhem that ensues afterwards
It’s the year 1985 (makes for a nostalgic soundtrack) and a drug dealer throws bags of cocaine from an airplane with the intent that his cohorts will then come pick it up at a forest in Georgia. Unfortunately, a bear ingests the contents before his crew and retrieve the precious cargo and turns an ordinarily peaceful creature into a killing machine. Meantime, several other folks are on their way to the forest too with no idea of what they are about to encounter.
