Critic Reviews of "Commando"
Chicago ReaderSeptember 18, 2007
Comic book stuff, helped out by the presence of Rae Dawn Chong as an airline stewardess whose sarcastic commentary adds some comic counterpoint to the deliberately overscaled action.
VarietySeptember 18, 2007
Chong lights up the film like a firefly, Schwarzenegger delivers a certain light touch of his own, [and] the result is palatable action comics.
Time OutJune 24, 2006
Lots of machine-gunfire, explosions and disposable khaki-clad extras, as you'd expect.
New York TimesMay 21, 2003
The big battle scenes are especially disappointing.
ScreenAnarchyMay 24, 2017
A cheesy and absurd kind of product, but it somehow works.
Common Sense MediaDecember 14, 2010
Brainless, explosion-happy action ('80s style).
Apollo GuideOctober 26, 2009
It might have been fun to watch when I was nine, but knowing what I know now, it is a horribly offensive film.
Groucho ReviewsMay 26, 2008
An audacious comic-book movie on steroids...cinematic junk food, but even a dieter deserves to cheat once in a while. [Blu-Ray]

You're welcome, California!

one of the best arguments available for the action movie as pure entertainment

serves as a template for many future action flicks

For action fans, one of the picks of the litter for the year.
