Don't forget the hadouken Arnold does in the mall, where he straight up punks that security guard in the chest with his double-fisted arnie punch

Something who impressed me a lot with this movie is the soldier who is killed at least 16 times.. He always returns a scene later in a different situation and he is killed again by Arnold!!!

The writer of this fun mindless action flick is also a really good comic writer.  He wrote the cool Superman for All Seasons mini-series, the Batman: the Long Halloween miniseries and is writing the Daredevil: Yellow miniseries.  He also writes Superman and the Fantastic Four.  Just thought you might want to know.

When I was an impressionable young lad, my grandfather recorded this long long ago off HBO for me.  I swear to god that I have seen this movie at least 500 times.  I watched it multiple times per day and then some and it STILL kicks tons of ass.  Hell, any movie with Vernon Wells, Bill Duke AND Bill Paxton (the jobber of ALL jobbers... when doesn't he play some type of military officer??) has to kick a lot of ass...

This was the first Arnold movie I saw when I was a wee young man.  Even as a kid I could see the movie flaws.  One of which you forgot to mention my dear Mr Clark and that is if you watch real close right after Arny rips the seat out of Rae Dawn's car and she backs out to leave you can clearly see the camera operator in the reflection from the car's brightly shining door.  Damn the good car wax.  Of course these flaws were minor in comparrison to most movies posted on this site of sites.  That still doesn't make this a bad movie, just another in the series of action movies starring Arny and Sly and others that make you just watch and say, "yeah right".

O.K. The film clip shows off some other nonsence. Note when the gunman comes around the corner to shoot at A.S. and the bullets fly through the leaves behind him: we get a good picture of the angle when "AHH-nold" turns to shoot back. From that angle he would have been cut off at the shoulders. Also, how come the grenade he throws goes off when the SAFTY PIN was not pulled? I also have trouble at the beginning of this flick when--even though he was warned of the danger--this "professional" didn't take precautions. He didn't even get on of the MANY(!!!!) guns from his shed! The gun shop has grenades and rocket launchers for God's sake! Yeah, I know: laws exist in movies ONLY when they are convenient. By the way, the rocket launcher the girl uses fires INCENTERARY shells. That van would have been TORCHED along with anyone inside. Like, guess who?

Oh yeah, the extra mentioned in the review who gets killed twice actually gets killed FOUR times.  Watch for him.  Or better yet, watch Dawn of the Dead and look carefully to see Tom Savini killed like 50 times as different zombies.

This was my first Arnold movie two, and yes, still my favorite... Well, maybe after Predator...
OK, so it may be corny and and maybe the actors couldn't act their way out of a cardboard box. But it's so cool in an Arnoldy, nostalgic sort of way, that I couldn't help myself in going "What?!" when I saw the review for this movie on And I'd still much rather watch Commando than any of today's "blockbusters" (Jurassic Park, Stargate, sheesh...). People knew how to have fun in the 80's. But I digress...

I only need five words as a review for this movie: what a piece of crap! Remember that scene in the mall where he jumps off like 20 feet from above and he isn't even hurt? WHAT IS UP WITH THAT??!!

This has got to be one of the coolest films of all time, but, did anyone notice the string holding sully up when hes about to be dropped? They might aswell be hardcore SAS ropes they were so blatant.  Also, when sully runs arnie down after he chases him out of the shopping mall, did anyone else noticce the size of the forehead on the stuntman? I mean come on now, get the net, sh'yeah!!!

I don't think anybody's mentioned it, But There's a scene where Arnold (after he has successful gained access to the bad ones property) Where he picks up  an AK. I'd like to call this Ak, the AK of infinity, because it didn't seem to run out of ammo.

Another scene, is where he enters the little shed in the yard. All those evil guys, fire into the house, easily missing a gargantuan like Arnold. And he comes out with a hand-axe (I believe) and a chain saw and handles them properly.

I still think those are the two best scenes in the movie.

Simply put, this is the BEST movie ever. Me and my friend watch it everyday, it's just too hilarious pointing out the faults and bad (but so funny) acting job by the cast. I think Bennet is the greastest villan ever, just look at the guy. The whole cast was picked perfectly even down to the small role characters. Every line the movie will make you roll on the floor laughing its that good. And last but not least is the soundtrack simply amazing it pumps you up before arnold starts his body count!

God what a film commando is!

God knows how many times ive watched it now, don`t get me wrong its absolute crap but hey, its all a bit of fun right!?

Oh!, when arnie is blasting his way towards the mansion, did eveyone see the guys been thrown into the air by flippers, after arnie tosses his grenades/water baloons?

Who would miss it!

Commando is a joke, if it was food i`d throw it out!
I love it though!

I'm not sure of the actual minutes of the film, but towards the end just before the bit where arnie goes into the shed thing, he throws a grenade at 2 gaurds and they do a straight vertical flip...pretty cool but you can clearly see the flipper pads in the background. Also when Arnie is shot at, he dives into some flowers and it seems as if there is a well placed mat there... anyway great site a good film too. The bit with Sully over the cliff is awesome.
