What can I tell you, I had a kick watching Commando on Blu-Ray.

What is Commando?

An ex-commando must rescue his daughter from bad, bad men.



The movie review

I remember the dark humor in Commando. Arnold Schwarzenegger was very fit in those days. It is a good action movie to switch off the brain for a few hours. The voice on the Commando trailer was the typical style of the time.

Commando was encoded in MPG2 and last 1h30. This Blu-Ray release has 2 extras on it: the few trailers and D-Box. No commentaries or "making of" are included. It's like if Fox did not want to invest to much on extras for catalog titles. Wait! It's almost the same thing I wrote in Under siege(Warner). ;) . It was made and then pulled by Fox last year(March 2007) because the copy protection was cracked. They could at least used the Director's Cut that was release with 94 minutes(1h34).

Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rae Dawn Chong, Alyssa Milano

Conclusion

Commando is a rent unless you want to buy all of Arnold Schwarzenegger movies for your Blu-Ray collection. Again, I would expect a better Blu-Ray release in a few years for the 25th anniversary.

This is a perfect example of why I like renting Blu-Ray movies at this time. I'm from Canada so I'm using Zip but US readers like Blockbuster. This way, I have access to more movie titles than my local video renting place.
