    So this is a bad film, but one I’ve repeatedly re-watched for some masochistic reason. The action is ridiculously cartoonish, and the acting if you can call it that, makes your average family home video look positively award season ready. The dialog for the most part is awful save for a few fun one-liners here and there, and the occasional decent joke delivered by Cindy (Rae Dawn Chong), who is dragged along for no plausible reason other than to comment…

    If you like 1980's over-the-top action, this is a movie you'll enjoy.

    Features Arnold in a scant bikini brief for no real reason, some camouflage paint that really serves no purpose, the worst aim from bad guys since Star Wars, and the best aim from a running, rolling, jumping man with a machine gun, ever. Excellent aim and a reckless disregard with explosives, especially when you consider that his prisoner daughter is being held somewhere in the camp that he…

    If Arnold Schwarzenegger did a stand up comedy show where he just pretended to kill people and then make one liner jokes about their deaths, I would pay to see it.

    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…
