Also, despite his reputation for bad acting, he delivers all his lines with perfect comic timing ("Let off some steam, Bennett"). Bennett is also a great character, but no match for Arnold. You'd have to be completely devoid of personality to not find this at least slightly entertaining.
This is my favorite film of all time, hands down. Buy it, don't think about it. It will be the greatest investment you ever make for an action flick of the 80's.
10/10 stars. Seriously.
This guilty pleasure is one of my all-time favorite testosterone pumping 80's Ahnuld action flicks chock full of some of the most memorable and hilariously over-the-top one-liners ever assembled in a single Schwarzenneger film with an exhaustive body count tally of 81 confirmed kills. Now it's finally getting the UNRATED Director's Cut treatment it deserves so we can see even more of the Governator at his macho 80's Republican finest.
The Commando Director's Cut DVD features the original 90-minute theatrical film and restores 96 seconds of mostly graphic violent shots that were trimmed to garner the film an R rating in this never-before-seen unrated version as envisioned by director Mark L. Lester restored back into the film via seamless branching. Additional DVD special features include director audio commentary, 3 deleted scenes which have not been added back into the film, two behind-the-scenes featurettes, photo galleries and more.
Commando Director's Cut is presented in widescreen (1.85:1 aspect ratio) with English 5.1 Dolby Digital and Dolby Surround audio, Spanish Mono, French Stereo plus French and Spanish subtitles.
Bonus content includes:
* Seamlessly branched Director's Cut with never-before-seen footage
* Audio commentary by director Mark Lester (on theatrical version only)
* Deleted Scenes
* Pure Action featurette
* Let Off Some Steam featurette
* Photo galleries with over 150 images

Don't deprive yourself of some pleasure. Come on, Bennett... let's party!
Sure enough, not long into the film, his daughter has been kidnapped. And the bad guys explain that they'll return her if he'll just perform one teeny-tiny little assassination . . .
That's the setup; the rest of the plot consists primarily of Arnold kicking a$$. That's what you wanted to see, isn't it? If not, skip this film.
But if you like this sort of thing -- as, obviously, I do -- _Commando_ will be one of your favorites (if it isn't already). Would you like to see Arnold 'drive' a sabotaged pickup truck by shoving it down a mountain and hopping in? Disembark from a jet aircraft while it's taking off? Pick up a phone booth while it's got a bad guy in it? Deliver classic lines like 'I'll be back' and 'Trust me'? Do all of the foregoing while whomping the behinds of some unambiguously evil bad guys? This is your movie.
The major villain -- Bennett, played by Vernon Wells -- looks and sounds as though he'd accidentally wandered into the set still in costume from _The Road Warrior_ (in which he played Wez). But you weren't watching this for its gritty realism, were you?
Rae Dawn Chong is in it too, as the 'feisty stewardess' that appears in so many of these films (see Halle Berry in _Executive Decision_ for one of the more recent). She gets a few of the good lines, and she even gets to fire a rocket launcher.
But the show belongs to the Gubernator. This is classic Schwarzenegger.

One of my all time favorites. If you have never seen the movie, and you are an Arnold fan, this is one of the better 80's action films.Published 11 days ago by MaWood
A must watch for any 80's or Arnold Schwarzenegger fan. Also, starring Alyssa Milano as the kidnapped daughter who then starred on ABC network "Who's the Boss" TV show.Published 24 days ago by Michael Salvador
Loved this movie when I was a little dude and love it even more now! Arnold is in his prime, one liners and all. Very young Alyssa Milano plays his daughter. Read morePublished 1 month ago by A and J Kuntz
My favorite stupid Arnold movie of all time, as if there aren't any others, right? All of the right elements are present: Explosions, vehicular assaults, reckless driving,... Read morePublished 1 month ago by M. Ballantine
A young Arnold Schwarzenegger delivers stupid one liner after stupid one liner and, if you're an action movie fan, you'll love every minute of it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Scott VanDeman
THE Quintessential Schwarzenegger movie, IMO. Great one-liners, cheesy action. The only thing that could make it better is if a "kill odometer" were shown in the corner.Published 1 month ago by Steve H
This movie becomes more entertaining as I get older. Love the Arnold "flexing"scenes and absurd amount of explosions and weapons. It's fun.Published 1 month ago by Meredith Robinson
