Commando is Schwarzenegger at his action ’80’s best! He’s a killing machine as works his way through mercenaries and an entire army in an effort to save his daughter. He also prevents an evil military coup in the process. We love it!

Life Lessons Learned from Commando
Dusty: Have guns everywhere.
- You gotta protect yourself, especially if you’ve developed loads of enemies like being the hero of a revolution.
The early father-daughter montage really showed Matrix’s love for Jenny (Alyssa Milano).
Sky: Let sleeping dogs lie.
- Matrix is the best of the best, so why the heck are you getting him involved?! He would’ve never defeated the army and prevented the military coup if they didn’t kidnap his daughter. Dumbass ’80’s villain.
Rae Dawn Chong as Cindy was great in this movie. Shooting rockets, flying plains and comedic moments?! Give me more RDC!
Dusty: Never quit.
- Matrix would stop at nothing to save his daughter Jenny. And even Jenny decided to try and escape when she stopped feeling sorry for herself.
A dad-bod doesn’t make for a worthy Schwarzenegger adversary.
