The ex-head of a special commando strike team, he's forced back into action when his daughter is kidnapped. With the help of a fiesty stewardess, Matrix has only a few hours to overcome his greatest challenge--finding his daughter before she is killed.

Expert Review Commando (Director's Cut) - DVD Review
By: Franck Tabouring Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 9/24/2007 10:24 PM
Commando is a great action film for so many reasons. One of course, is Arnold Schwarzenegger, who back in the 80's was celebrating the start of a glorious career as an action icon. He wonderfully masters his role as the tough colonel nobody should want to mess with, delivers compelling stunts, and most importantly, generates big laughs with some of the most hilarious one-liners in the history of over-the-top action extravaganzas. the full review

Professional Reviews

"...Chong lights up the film like a firefly, Schwarzenegger delivers a certain light touch of his own..." 10/09/1985

Ultimate DVD
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he kind of cinema only the Eighties can provide....COMMANDO makes no apologies for what it is -- man-tastic action." 05/01/2008 p.76

Variety 8 of 10
In Commando, the fetching surprise is the glancing humor between the quixotic and larky Rae Dawn Chong and the straight-faced killing machine of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Chong lights up the film like a firefly, Schwarzenegger delivers a certain light touch of his own, the result is palatable action comics...Credit Lester with chiseling the quick, subtly romantic byplay between the two stars - unlikely mates thrown together in pursuit of a deadly Latin neo-dictator - and pulling off a terrific series of tracking shots during a riotous chase in a crowded galleria complex.
