As good today as the day it was conceived. If Matrix was here he'd laugh too.
I don't think many people are capable of understanding what a masterpiece this movie is. I've never seen anything so perfect.
If you were to ask me what film defines my personal taste, the answer would be 'Commando'.
There are better movies but damn this movie is so perfect.
Think I'm about to shake up my 'Favourite Films' list.
A film that has been with me almost thirty years, since childhood, and I still fret over the same question: what WAS the filling in the sandwich that Alyssa Milano makes at the beginning..?

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 was 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…
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…
An oldy but a goody. Commando, I choose you as my 100th film watched this year.
Define: 80s action cheese.
