I can't believe that 31 years ago I actually PAID MONEY to see it.  

Some great one-liners, though.

"Please don't disturb my friend. He's just dead."

Let off some steam, Bennett.

You said you were going to kill me last!



I lied.

You know when I was a boy and rock'n'roll came to East Germany, the communists said it was subversive.

Maybe they were right.

One of my all time favs. So many one liners.

I would pay money to see it today??

"He's dead tired". Stop messing up the great one-liners from that movie!!

One of the only good things to come out of the 80s to counter balance parachute pants.

I think a lot of people try working the "camp" angle these days to try and deflect attention from just how bad the movie really was.

Not every movie has to be Citizen fucking Kane. Commando is enjoyable for the cheesy one liners, over the top violence, and sheer awesomeness that was 80's Arnold. Yes it was a bad movie, but that is part of what makes it awesome. No its not a cinema masterpiece but if you cant enjoy it for what it was and have fun watching Commando maybe you should just stick to arthouse snob movies and shitty foreign dramas.

Watching that movie as a kid and seeing the gun room is what inspired me to get one.

Not many people can pull off a chain mail sweater vest.

When Sully's car crashed and Arnold flipped it over and it there was no damage..

Arnold throwing circular saw blades at dudes

Young Alyssa Milano

Used to love that movie as a kid.  Fantasized about looting that gun store.

"This green beret is gonna kick your ass."

"I eat green berets for breakfast!"

Awesome, dumb 80's action flick.

I like Raw Deal too.

Pics of gun room?

You're a funny guy Sully, that's why I'm going to kill you last.

He doesn't chase Alyssa Milano through the bowels of the Presidente's mansion, he MINCES after her.  Don't believe me?  Watch it again...  Like a damn Easter Bunny wearing chainmail and some Hibben-like knife...

Solid.

I was watching it while I was chugging along on the treadmill earlier today.





They edited the boobs out where they crash through the door into the adjoining motel room.  At least my memory tells me that there were boobs in that scene in the original cut.





If probably could have gone another mile or two if the boobs were there.





Can someone confirm there were boobs there in the original?

As someone who was a boy entering puberty when that movie came out.. 100% confirmed.

I watched part of it at lunch at work. It was great!
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 6:02:26 PM EDT
what always cracked me up about the movie is that Bennett was supposes to be as tough as Arnold...yeah, the slightly, chubby, Freddie Mercury look alike in chain mail was supposed to be tier 1...even as a 10 year old, I thought that was a bit silly.

It was great as it was an action movie that didn't take itself and the genre too seriously and changed the genre.

Prior to Commando the standard was to show the hero as a good guy along with his friends, girl, and dog.
First they kill his friend, then they kidnap his girl.
Only when they then kill his dog does the hero break bad and go after the bad guys, usually 3/4 of the way through the movie.
This is most 80's Chuck Norris, Steven Segal movies.

Commando starts off with the audience expecting this, along with the bad guys who kidnap his daughter.
But Arnold starts after them immediately, going right into the action and not wasting half the movie building up the moral outrage.
Arnold realized that it's only a movie and that you can provide the action the audience wants without having to build a case to morally justify it.
