    The King of the One-Liners versus Luther from the Warriors, a guy that looks like he belongs on a Tim and Eric skit, angry bald black man, guy with horrifically bad South American accent, Freddie Mercury in a fat suit, mall cops, and about 100 nameless cannon fodder dudes.

    Guess who wins?

    The best/worst soundtrack of all time.

    Every '80s Action trope injected with a shit ton of steroids, that is what Commando is and it's fucking glorious.

    "I'll be back, Bennett."

    14 minutes in. That's how long it took for me to know this was a 5 star film. I was never going to rate it any less than 4, but it's reassuring to know early on that I'd be able to fulfill my bias yet again. My father told me to watch this movie, and seeing how he also recommended Alien, he's got a nice track record.

    This time, Arnold seems to play an ex-special forces…

    My review -- this film is now on DVD and yes it has a sizable profit margin of roughly $47 million. The plot of this action-packed film is as follows, the viewer meets John Matrix as he and his daughter are living in a forest surroundings as he is sitting down to eat a sandwich, his hearing picks up a very familiar sound to him of a military helicopter and it is his senior officer come to warn him that…

    No one is expecting rocket science, but even if expecting dumb, Commando takes the cake. For many, myself included, there will be a lot of nostalgic value in revisiting what would have been a 12-year old in the 80's idea of what a hyper violent action movie should be. Neither cops, shopping mall guards, or banana republic soldiers will stand in Arnie's way to rescuing his daughter because he's strong and can do no wrong. We then remember fantasizing with…

    One of the dumbest, most 80s movies of all time - and unexpectedly great as a result. This might be the movie with the highest one-liner density of all time. The Governator in prime form in a plot that gets thrown out of the window at first chance for an endless stream of wisecracks and cracking heads. Greatly recommended.

    What a bunch of macho bullshit.

    The fact that Commando actually has a character say 'macho bullshit' is testament to how great it actually is. Non-stop, completely stupid, completely fun, completely self-aware, and in an easy 90 minutes. Commando is surely the epitome of 80's action.

    I mentioned in my Aliens review that I can't stand when supposedly highly trained military do three things: 1) rattle off cheesy-macho banter, 2) hip-fire, 3) generally maneuver in ways that military don't.
    And…

    Did anyone out there in the early 80's have an action man?
    Well, I did and Commando in this movie always reminded me of having one. Suping himself up with grenades, knives and plenty of guns to go and kick some whoop ass.
    This is the biggest pile of cheese of an action movie you can ever get. The acting,direction and dialogue is ludicrous but everything works so well and it's Arnold at his very best of kicking ass.
    When…
