The 1980’s classic war, action movie “Commando” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger has been brought back to life in the form of this stunning musical. Whoever created this had too much time on their hands, and I’m thankful they did.
“Commando” was one of my favorite movies as a child, and probably even played a role in why I ended up in the infantry. However, I tried watching it just a few years ago, and it was bad, like really bad. There was less less weapon-aiming than in an ISIS propaganda video, and fingers constantly wrapped around the triggers of weapons not in use. The military consultant they used in these 80’s action flicks had to be the biggest stolen valor fraud of all time. They’re unbearable to watch.
Yet, here is “Commando” reborn. I couldn’t take my eyes or ears off of it. Enjoy.
