Command & Conquer.

“Cooke: You scared, motherfucker? Well, you should be, because this Green Beret is going to kick your big ass!

Matrix: I eat Green Berets for breakfast. And right now, I'm very hungry!

A retired elite commando has only a few hours to find and rescue his daughter from an exiled dictator.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: John Matrix

If there were a number of Arnie movies I would watch as a child and for what they were, it was Predator, Terminator, Last Action Hero, Total Recall and Commando is yet another. There are no pretensions here, as director Mark. L Lester creates a thoughtless, macho, no-nonsense parade of exciting violence with plenty cracking one-liners along the way. The climax especially, as there's no mercy with a rampant Arnie taking on a small arm” read more

Arnold's from Best to Worst (20 movies items)

"The best action picture on earth! So over the top action that it makes you laugh and Arnold's dry one-liners make the movie great. The massacre at the end is just pure greatness. Arnold is the man!"

Things that should never have existed in cinema (10 movies items)

"Arnie showing affection to children One of the most frightening things I've ever seen on the big screen is Arnie's manic grin being aimed at a young child actor picked to portray his offspring. The scenes with Arnie & Kids are either swimming in a barrel of cheese or effective at making you prey that someone else was in the room whilst they were filming. Also seen in: Jingle All the Way True Lies Kindergaten Cop"

My Favourite MANLY Movies! (40 movies items)

"HOW IS IT MANLY? Commando is so absurd and ridiculously violent, that it may be the most unintentionally hilarious action movie ever made. Recent studies have shown that, while watching this movie, 9/10 viewers experienced increased muscle growth, elevated levels of aggression and an inexplicable urge to purchase an M-60. It would be prudent to keep something strong nearby to mop up all the testosterone that will be leaking out of your TV while watching this. Arnie's John Matrix takes the noti"

Arnie's Ownage! (8 movies items)

"Scenario #1 Arnie violently elbows an accompanying henchman in the face whilst sitting next to him on a plane - probably killing him INSTANTLY, but then he breaks his neck for good measure. He conceals the corpse cunningly, underneath a sun hat, before informing the stewardess: DEATHBLOW: "Don't disturb my friend, he's dead tired!" Scenario #2 Arnie interrogates a henchman by dangling him over a cliff edge, before dropping him to his demise. Upon returning to his willing female companion, she "

"Mitä saadaan kun yhdistetään Arska+paljon aseita+kosto= Commando. Koko elokuvassa tapetaan ihmisiä enemmän kuin Rambossa ja meininki on sen mukaista. Ihmisiä kuolee milloin mitenkin ja jokainen tappo on huolellisesti suunniteltu ja ne näyttävät realistisilta. Ja sitten vielä Arska. Arska on tunnetusti kivikasvo, mutta hänen olemuksensa saa elokuvan näyttämään paljon paremmalta. Minkälainen elokuva olisi Terminator-saaga tai Commando ilman Arskaa? Miehen muskelit ovat valtavat ja "

" "Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last?... I lied". Kyllä vain Iso-Arska on täällä taas. Muskelit pulleina, tuima tappokoneen ilme kasvoillaan ja kököt one-linerit tykitysvalmiina, Arska on valmiina taisteluun. Järjettömien machoiluelokuvien kiistaton kunkku Commando ei järkevästi ajateltuna toimi muuna kuin aivojen nollaajana. Hutera juoni on todellakin tekosyy toiminnalle ja paukkeelle, joka täyttää melkeinpä kokonaan elokuvan tyhjää humisevan sisällön. Arska "

"Awesome 80's action. Huge muscular guy carries huge gun and blows huge chunks of foreign people away. (I just summed up all 80's action flicks for you by the way. Your welcome!) And in the final battle fights a man who I thought was Freddie Mercuy (you know the frontman from Queen)"

"Nominated by Grand Assault The archetypal action film which is filled with hilarious one-liners, cheesy family bonding scenes and more importantly, catastrophic body counts. Arnie pits his wits against a completely non-threatening villain in this 80s action masterpiece. "

“I have to agree with this guy.

This film is the basis for over the top, more bodies than bullets action films. Although there was a bad following of the amount of crap in this particular genre, its the best of the bunch.

I wouldn't go as far to say it's like Crank and that its mocking itself but you can't help but think the writers were having a laugh when they wrote this dialogue.

The film is also sentimental to me and my pals when we would simply watch this and relish in its unbelievable stunts and notorious flaws.” read more

Let off some steam, Bennett!

“Commando is the archetype of the all action hollywood blockbuster. The acting it laughable, the dialogue - cringeworthy. There are more explosions and gunfights than you can shake a stick at. The protagonist is Mr Universe, his nemesis, a camp, chain-mail wearing australian.

This film has some of the funniest and most memorable lines of any action film and the final scene registers one of the highest body counts ever seen on celluloid. I wouldn't have it any other way. What a film!” read more
