ReviewSource Variety
Review 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.
