    Not as good as The Running Man or Total Recall, but still pretty good Arnie fan! The one liners are pretty hilarious too!

    The only film in which I've seen someone a) rip a telephone box out of the ground and throw it (with or without a person already inside) and b) say "I'll shoot you between the balls," thus fully deserving the recognition it has been given.

    Commando is as dumb as it is entertaining.

    Commando lacks character development, has very cheesy dialogue and sometimes feels like a B-Movie, yet, it works very well that way.

    The film maintains a tongue-in-cheek humor that makes all the over-the-top actions of Schwarzenegger's character believable inside the film's universe. We're also introduced to a side character who midway through who doesn't exactly have a purpose inside the plot except reacting in awe to all the feats the protagonist accomplishes. This…

    Perhaps THE quintessential Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. Its almost like the greatest hits of Schwarzenegger films. Anything that has ever made any of his movies entertaining is all rolled into one action packed turn du force, heck, he even utters if famous Terminator line "I'll be Back".

    I would have thought there was no chance that I hadn't already logged this on Letterboxd, but alas that was not the case. I feel so ashamed.

    "Commando" is one of the most awesome and macho action movies ever. This was at a time where Arnold Schwarzenegger was the king of action movies. This became noted after his two hits "Conan the Barbarian" and "The Terminator". The story is very engaging as it involves an ex Delta Force operative who discovers the members of his unit are dead and he must save his daughter after she is taken by an enemy. An ex South American Dictator wants…

    I wouldn't be surprised if this movie is solely responsible for why people make fun of 80s action flicks.

    El movimiento más inteligente de la carrera de Shcwarzenegger fue el dejar las pelis de acción pura por aquellas que contenian pluses añadidos como Terminator, Depredador, Desafio Total... Stallone o Norris podían haber protagonizado Ejecutor pero Commando, el John Matrix de Loeb (eso explica muchas cosas) y De Souza solo podía haber sido encarnado por el austríaco de oro. Un heroe dotado fuerza sobrehumana, de un sigilo inaudito para un coloso de 1,90, de un heroe que cuando falla el…

    Now THIS is how you do an action movie.

    Tight pacing with no meandering, no weird villain monologues and convenient ways to help them avoid death (the "mastermind" gets shot down rather unceremoniously and swiftly to show how fragile he was), no forced romance subplots, etc.

    Just pure, fast-paced action and adrenaline with subtle and cool one-liners and self-aware jabs, running that perfect line of not being too smugly full of itself and just flat out inane, just smooth, collected…

    Not everyone is going to understand or like Commando. It's pretty much just Arnold playing himself. The opening montage of him with his daughter is hilarious. It's got some great one liners. If you're in the mood for some cheesy and over the top action, this is the movie for you.

    The rare exception in movie history that effectively merge stupidity with genius. Let's put it like this: if Commando was a child actor it would be the annoying boy in 1967's Yongary - but with subtle charactization and intelligence in comparison. Which doesn't say shit. I know.
