Commando is ,without question, the greatest film of all time. It's so bad - it's good. A mad Australian called Bennett? Genius (why'd they have to give him woolen chain mail though?). Let off some steam and watch it.

Fun review. Only nitpick is, the "Bad Guy" who tells Matrix he needs to cooperate and is then shot in the head is named Diaz.

This movie and Stallone's Cobra were the greatest movies from the 80's!

Great movie.  I want to buy it and it to my B movie collection.  During Arnie's assult on the base, I noticed something strange, he must have mastered a force shield technique.  I know this because he can shoot people, but he can not be shot.  I think that he should show are boys and girls this technique all over the world.

Just my 2 cents.

Just a friendly reminder to all Commando fans that the director's cut DVD came out on September 18th and is most excellent.

.

Also, be sure to check out  http://commandofans.com/ as they were greatly responsible for helping to get Fox to make this special edition Commando DVD.

I've posted this before, but it's worth another look. A side-by side comparison of Bennett and Freddie Mercury. Coincidence?

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!!!
Clone soldiers!

Arnie is Arnie. Whats not to love. Man, i wish I sold the blanks to the wepons master....I'd have a fortuine!

I love this film.  It's corny at times, but Bennett is such a bad ass.  Nothing says bad ass like wearing a chain mail vest and fighting with a knife. 

It's funny to watch Arnold attempted comedy, it's too good.

I saw this movie online a couple months ago. Man oh man! I agree with just about everything the reviewer says. Ms. Rae's acting is terrible (I specifically remember thinking that to myself while I watched her), the fight scenes are incredibly cheesy (amazing how probably 50 heat-packing soldiers cannot even nick Swartz, yet some bad-a dude with a knife can nearly take him down), etc. etc. This movie is just an excuse to blow up stuff. BounceGiggle But it still kicks @$$!

What was that overly dramatic line the major said after he learned Matrix was going to "visit" the baddies to get his girl back? "Get ready for WWIII!" or something like that. He, he, he...

Last night I was watching some old MacGyver episodes (ah, MacGyver, another wonderful example of '80s cheese) and who should pop up as the villain in an episode but Vernon Wells.  About ten or fifteen pounds lighter and dressed a bit more conservatively, but not looking or sounding much different than in Commando.

I also watched the movie again semi-recently.  I'd misremembered the boss battle at the end, recalling it for some reason as being far more one-sided than it actually was.  Bennett actually gets some licks in, although he doesn't look as if he should.

By the way, you've got to love how, when the cops show up at the surplus shop to arrest Matrix, they don't even bother to check on the lone car in the otherwise empty parking lot where Rae's waiting.  You think that'd raise a bit of suspicion.

Wow.  I first saw this movie when I was about 7 years old, and have seen it many times since - I still love it.  Bad acting, explosions, the Incredibly Undefeatable Extra, Arnold Schwarzenegger speaking actual dialogue...this movie is still fun to watch!!!

Here's a funny remix of part of the final battle siege.
