Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

A massively underrated action thriller which kept Schwarzenegger occupied between blockbusters, Commando may be one of the last shoot-out films ever to have real characters in it. Not, of course, that they're anything other than stereotypes, but they're painted with such detailed, positive strokes that it's impossible not to relate to them. Arnie plays a retired military special-ops officer whose daughter (played with an expert balance of cute/feisty by Alyssa Milano) is kidnapped by the baddest of bad guys, who'll only hand her back as and when he's assassinated a tiresome banana-republic president on their behalf. Needless to say, Arnie is deeply annoyed by this, rescues the moppet single-handed amid more bullets and explosions than you can shake a stuntman's pay cheque at, and... well, why spoil the fun by revealing any more? Co-star Rae Dawn Chong gets some nice one-liners as the innocent bystander who gets caught up in the mayhem.

The DVD comes with no additional features at all, but who needs 'em anyway? --Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars "DONT DISTURB MY FRIEND HE'S DEAD TIRED" 18 July 2010
Format:Blu-ray
First of all the 1st review on this page is incorrect COMMANDO on Blu Ray is UNCUT compared to the standard DVD version its the U.S.THEATRICAL CUT which runs at 88 mins, the standard DVD runs at 85 mins. So COMMANDO fans we get to eventually see the TOOL SHED scene UNCUT -eg GARDEN FORK, PICKAXE, SAW BLADES & arm chopped off with MACHETTE... So picture quality is a step above the normal DVD, It still has grain visible but what can you expect the ACTION CLASSIC is 25 years old.. The sound quality is also good for the age of the film.. I can remember renting COMMANDO back in 86 and what an IMPACT it had "i loved it" Arnie is FANTASTIC, Full of ACTION & DARK HUMOUR, An 80's CLASSIC. "GO & BUY NOW"

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is just a short note to say the Blu Ray version of this gloriously over-the-top Schwarzenegger rampage is uncut as far as I'm aware,and does feature the "shed scene" in all of its glory.

4.0 out of 5 stars CUT!!! 20 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Ok. Firstly this is a class action movie with Schwarzenegger at his bestbut.........its cut! Its not a subtle cut at that. Your left wondering if theDVD player just glitched.
I sat down to watch this epic and was gutted when I saw that the scene inthe aeroplane where he breaks a guys neck is removed (badly). I stoppedwatching and fast-forwarded to another commonly removed scene where hechops a guys arm off and yet again its badly cut. After that I gave upwatching it, I was wanting to see the 'greatest story ever told' not a cutup version fit for a seven o clock watershed. It gets four stars itsreally a 5/5 movie but this cut down no extras DVD brings it down. If Iwere you check out the American version it probably isn't cut. Why didthey cut it?...now that's a million pound question.

5.0 out of 5 stars UK BLU RAY IS UNCUT 26 April 2013
By mitch
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The uk version if this Blu ray is most definitely UNCUT.
After owning the DVD version of this film and annoyed at how the film was shredded, I was sceptical about getting this again but im glad I did.
The neck break, saw blades etc are all back.
Thank "F" for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 1980s Arnie action pic 31 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Perhaps the epitome of 1980s action and non-franchise Arnie product, Commando is a very dated and extremely entertaining action film full of great stunts, one liners and cheesy, gaptoothed Arnie goodness. Rae Dawn Chong plays a typical 1980s sidekick with some still-funny one liners (and some real groaners), Dan Hedaya (apparently in shoe polish) plays a deposed dictator from Val Verde (the same fictional Central American country from Predator and Die Hard 2), Vernon Wells (Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Weird Science) plays Bennett, David Patrick Kelly oozes slime as Sully, some guy plays the Richard Crenna-role from Rambo and Bill Paxton shows up in a brief cameo (Arnie killed him in Terminator, and threatened him later in True Lies). All in all, a good cast.

Comic book writer Joseph "Jeph" Loeb was one of the writers of the script and it is probably him who contributed the memorable "rogue's gallery" of villains here - the "evil muscleman" Bennett, the "sleazy white guy" Sully, the "complacent psychopath" Cooke, etc - which makes the film so much fun to watch. The film is nicely situated between spoof and genuine thrilling action. Rather than undermine the film, the comedy here is to reinforce the thrills the film provides and knows you came for.

James Horner's score is quite good in a very cheesy way. While Horner has never done anything original in his life, he comes pretty close here - we can here lots of pre-echoes of the atmospheric militarism of his upcoming Aliens score, along with an extremely catchy melody performed on steelpan/steel drums. Also used are lots of keyboards (obviously), pan pipes (to indicate those of asian descent - really?) and, of course, the most 1980s instrument of all - the saxophone. Overall, it's extremely effective.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A great mid eighties action thriller from Arnold Schwarzenegger, this film is a perfect blend of action and one liners. It's a fine evening's entertainment for those of us who enjoy that sort of thing.

It's got all the ingredients. Arnie shows off his muscles gratuitously, and metes out deadly violence and killer one liners with equal ease. The script is perfectly suited to his talents, although it occasionally calls for the odd bit of exposition and provides some unintended humour as Arnie tries to get through some more complicated lines. There are plenty of nasty villains to contend with, and lots of impressive fight scenes as titanic gladiators do their stuff. Also present and correct the action film staple - an absolutely ridiculous plot more full of holes than a colander. The main bad guy has an evil and dastardly plan so convoluted, complicated and stonkingly daft that it's laughable. He is also a bad guy with a surprising lack of self preservation instinct. Thrown in with this are lots of big bangs as Arnie blows up and shoots anything that moves (and quite a few things that don't move). It's an absolutely perfect beer and pizza film full of nostalgia for those lads among us who grew up with eighties action film. 5 stars.
