John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a retired Secret Service colonel, is on the trail of right-wing renegades and a Central American dictator, whom he had once helped to depose. The renegades have kidnapped his eleven-year-old daughter and Matrix is not going to rest until he has her back. This action spectacular was much admired on its initial release due to its introduction of humour into a formula which had been played straight up until that point.
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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Okay actioner with some great throwaway comedic lines from both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rae Dawn Chong. This version has some of the more extreme violence that was removed from previous DVD releases restored - Yay!
Picture is 1.85:1 anamorphic a tad grainy in places, but the colours are strong. Audio is 5.1 and is fairly good.
One of the Austrian Oak's better efforts. Far better than Raw Deal, Red Heat, Red Sonja and Conan The Destroyer.
Has the full tool shed scene (i.e. arm chopped, saw blades damage) although there still seems to be a few seconds missing as I've seen a fuller tool shed scene before!
Maybe that's on the US Director's Cut(?)
