Arnold Schwarzenegger is the greatest action hero/muscular meme man to ever exist. Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis come close in the Hollywood action pantheon, but they just cannot measure up to Arnie in terms of sheer charisma, bicep size, distinct and hilarious accent, or the quality of his vast body of work. Commando from 1985 is not the film he is most known for, perhaps obviously, but it is a movie that many of his fans will list among the films they love the most – at least in the genre of action. I am unashamedly a fan of this hilariously stupid, partly unintentionally comical action film that embodies everything great and everything so bad that it’s great of 1980s action films.
