    Chemically induced muscles, terrible acting, and laughable dialogue. Commando is if anything a time capsule to a bygone era of action film. Big muscles and even bigger guns. Let's not forget the kill rate and the crude international stereotypes. Maybe you have to of grown up in this time to fully appreciate it. It's so over the top in ever aspect that I find it hard to believe that anyone if given a chance could find some level of enjoyment. If it helps watch this movie and keep in mind that this guy once held office. If that's not comedy I don't know what is.

    The Terminator may be Arnold Schwarzenegger's best film in the 1980s, but Commando, while not a great film, is a very exciting, shamelessly over-the-top and action-packed antique from the 1980s, and Schwarzenegger is at one of his most exciting roles in this film.

    The film centers around retired Delta Force operative John Matrix (Schwarzenegger), whose daughter Jenny (Alyssa Milano) is kidnapped by Latin American terrorists who are led by Arius (Dan Hedaya), a man seeking to gain back power in…

    I caught this movie on television this morning. I've always wanted to check this one out, mainly because of Arnold. And luckily, it didn't really disappoint. I really enjoyed Commando. Sure, the dialogue is cheesy as hell and most of the characters have no motivation, but the action sequences are very fun and the story is actually not that bad. Arnold is a complete badass here, and his daughter really isn't that bad either. However, the woman that Arnold is…

    Doesn't seem to lose its lustre even after what seems to be my 3rd viewing within as many months?

    The cheesy one liners and ridiculously never ending magazine just add the perfect touch to this movie.

    Let me tell you about COMMANDO: This movie FUCKING. RULES. It's one of the best action movies, period. It's a hilariously self-mocking parody of action movie tropes while also being a rigoddamndiculous amazing action movie in itself. It's got a greased-up Arnold, an adorable Rae Dawn Chong, and a rocket launcher. The two main female characters are resourceful and capable while also being real people- never one-dimensional victims but never de-humanized either. Arnold kills so many assholes and barely pauses…

    Commando is quite possibly the manliest movie ever made. Only Predator (released two years later) can legitimately vie with it for the title. It has oodles of action and homo-eroticism for straight and gay men alike; not to mention its tendency to impregnate unprotected female viewers.

    No needless romance, no filler subplots, just an hour and a half of what Arnold Schwarzenegger (at his prime) does best: showing off his enormous biceps, uttering the most impressive collection of memorable one-liners…

    Quite possibly the ultimate 80s action movie, and definitely the ultimate dumb one-liner movie.
