Commando

( 11 )

Overview

Arnold Schwarzenegger kicks some major butt as Colonel John Matrix in the action hit Commando. Fox has done only a slightly passable job on this 1.85:1 non-anamorphic widescreen transfer. Sadly, this is not the sharpest transfer, and there is an excessive amount of grain and edge enhancement throughout the film. However, the colors and black levels all look evenly rendered and bright. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in English and French. Unfortunately, this is not a very exciting 2.0 ...

Overview

Arnold Schwarzenegger kicks some major butt as Colonel John Matrix in the action hit Commando. Fox has done only a slightly passable job on this 1.85:1 non-anamorphic widescreen transfer. Sadly, this is not the sharpest transfer, and there is an excessive amount of grain and edge enhancement throughout the film. However, the colors and black levels all look evenly rendered and bright. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in English and French. Unfortunately, this is not a very exciting 2.0 soundtrack. While the dialogue, effects, and music all sound distortion-free, there is little surround usage during the feature. Also included on this disc are English and Spanish subtitles. The only extra feature Fox has slapped on this disc is a theatrical trailer for the film. Maybe someday we will see a better version of this exciting action classic on DVD -- until then, fans are stuck with this only mediocre edition of Commando.

    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.

    One of the best Action flicks EVER!

    Okay so if you watch this movie expecting cheese, and LOTS of it, you will love this movie. Matrix is the ultimate hero, he can smell his enemies coming from a distance! He's a complete maniac! An entire island of bad guys obliterated by one man...freakin' cool. Buy it, give it as a gift, watch it over and over again, you will LOVE this awesomely bad*** movie!

    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.
