Commando Quote: “Let off some steam, Bennett” – Col. John Matrix

Give “Commando” some respect! Seriously! This Arnold Schwarzenegger action extravaganza paved the way for watch-based action shows like “24,” spawned Arnold comedies like “Kindergarten Cop” and proved you can, in fact, have too much calypso music in a movie.

This episode has something for everyone: Big D wows by using his military experience to backseat drive the world’s worst Special Forces operatives. Roger busts out his world-famous Austrian

accent, and Gene tells the tragic tale of Val Verde, a nation forgotten because it never existed. Relive Schwarzenegger’s tactical mistakes, marvel at Dan Hedaya’s awkward Spanish accent, swoon over the implied homosexuality, and cringe at the veiled pedophilia.

It’s all here on Shat The Movies. Sit back, press play, and LET OFF SOME STEAM.
