Going Commando

Commando is for those who like action and Arnie. Growing up, Arnold Schwarzenegger was my favorite actor to watch. Even if his movies were all R rated, I still watched them as a kid. Commando was the film that proved that Arnold could play a modern day guy in 1985. Albeit still an unstoppable killing machine. Commando is about an ex-soldier named John Matrix whose daughter (played a young Alyssa Milano) is kidnaped by terrorists. They force him to carry out an assassination or else his daughter dies. He plays along at first, then he escapes, and kills everyone in his path. Recruiting a whiny flight attendant in the process. The over-the-top action and violence is easily the best thing about the movie. Leading to a crazy shoot ’em up where Matrix mows through several men with a variety of deadly weapons. With Arnie’s signature one-liners like “don’t disturb my friend, he’s dead tired”, “remember Sully when I promised I’d kill you last… I lied”, and “I eat green berets for breakfast and right now I’m very hungry” being my personal favorites. Not to mention the final fight scene where he says “let off some steam Bennett.” So give Commando a watch, that’s an order soldier.
