    This was the first Swarzenegger film I saw.

    This was the first Swarzenegger film I saw.

    It's Arnold at his best. A one man army. An Invincible warrior.
    This is pure, undiluted, uncorrupted action.

    Awesome!

    This movie is really cool. Colonel Matrix (Schwartznegger) is retired and living quietly with his 10 year old daughter. However she gets kidnapped by a group of men who serve a man who lost his power as the Latin American dictator. His goal is to make Matrix kill the president of his country to put him back up to power. All the fighting scenes were classics. He also had a couple good lines. A movie everyone should own.

    ARNOLD!!!

    Arnold rocks, this movie is old but still delivers in every way possible. There are some classic scenes and lines, for example, 'slitting the little girls throat is like cutting warm butter'. One of Arnold's top six at least. Buy it Today, I promise you won't be disappointed.

    Commando

    This movie truly displayes the strength of Arnold Schwarzzeneger. Most of the stunts he did himself. Plot is thin but action is thick.
