Seriously now, this is a seminal film for a lot of people. To this day, when I throw a party, I will put either Commando or Cobra on mute and just let it act as background eye candy. Directed by career B-movie auteur Mark L. Lester, Commando is a fascinating anthropological look at the tastes of America in the 80's. When the bombs start dropping, and we want to send one last movie into Earth orbit, I nominate Commando. It would explain everything that anyone could possibly want to know about our culture.
Join us Wednesday at 4 PM PST for a couple hours of the old ultra-violence!
