Commando is one of the best Schwarzenegger's action films from the 80's a real bad-ass he ever did, Let's Party! It is my third favorite Schwarzenegger film. I grew up with "Commando". It was my first real action movie I saw as a kid when I was 8 years old in 1990 somewhere there. Arnold Schwarzenegger become my favorite action star of all time. I love his movies, I love this movie to death it is my favorite action film of all time. It is one men army against 200 soldiers and a terrorist who kidnapped retired special forces commando soldier's daughter and he has to go back in to action to rescue his daughter before she get's killed.
One of the best action scenes in the film ever , explosions real effects, real guns are used automatic and explosives weapons. No CGI, or shaky cam in here it is a hard - R real blood squibs simply one of the best action films from the 80's. The music score the actors, puppetry and so on.
I used to be the biggest fan of Schwarzenegger of all time, because his movie were damn good. What Schwarzenegger is doing with his career is a damn disgrace. I love Arnold's old films from the 80's when his career started I still can't believe that Schwarzenegger praise Terminator 2: Judgment Day that it is his best film, but Commando doesn't. I would definitely say Commando is his best film. I know in the 80's Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone were competitive because the same year Rambo: First Blood Part II come out and it was worldwide success it made more money than "Commando" and Rambo won an Oscar. Commando come out the same year and when Schwarzenegger learn about Rambo: First Blood Part II he was extremely mad that time on Stallone and because Commando wasn't such a box office hit like Rambo: First Blood Part II was.
If I would had to chose an action film with one men army Commando or Rambo: First Blood Part II you already know which one would I chose and that would be Rambo: First Blood Part II cause I am a huge Rambo fan.
Arnold blasts bad guys to pieces, he beats all the bad security guys in the mall, slides with the rope like Tarzan, throws phone booth like for joke. Dresses with guns and he arms himself like an army and sneaks into Arias' fortress. That scene was a bad-ass, as a commando he shoots with machine guns M60 army of soldiers, blows up barracks with Claymore and detonator, fights with Bennett (Vernon Wells) and rescue his daughter Jenny (Alyssa Milano). Matrix uses 4-barreled rocket launcher and blows up the wall bad-ass. Matrix kills all the soldiers, the film is also a little slasher in which Matrix uses knives, working tool, axe and machete like Jason Voorhees in which he cut's a soldiers arm off really brutal.
John Matrix was also my favorite action hero in my childhood and he was a comic book hero too me and guess what? He still is, his right there between John Rambo and Marion "Cobra" Cobretti.
Chelsea Field is also in the movie as one of the flight attendants she was in action movies like The Last Boy Scout, Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man and Masters of the Universe she was in the action movies like this. I would definitely replace Rae Dawn Chong with Chelsea Field and put her as Matrix side kick.
Great music score form James Horner who is no longer with us anymore R.I.P. Brilliant story, with action and great cast simply bad-ass one men army action film from the 80's. Every year I am watching this movie on Blu-ray with my dad I also do have a DVD home about this movie. Why can't Hollywood make action movies like this one today? The score is 10.
