Commando

 (1985)

Commando Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

John Matrix, ultimate soldier and one-man army. Matrix, the former leader of a special commando strike force that always got the toughest jobs done, is forced back into action when his young daughter (Alyssa Milano) is kidnapped. To find her, Matrix has to fight his way through an array of punks, killers, one of his former commandos, and a fully equipped private army. With the help of a feisty stewardess (Rae Dawn Chong) and an old friend, Matrix has only a few hours to overcome his greatest challenge: finding his daughter before she's killed.

For more about Commando and the Commando Blu-ray release, see Commando Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Commando Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

While this 1080p, 1.85:1 image found on Commando will never compare to the best transfers I've seen, it nevertheless looks marvelous when taken by itself, compared only to the previous VHS and DVD versions of the movie. Commando is like an old friend, a broken-in baseball glove or a favorite recliner, something that I'm always more than happy to spend time with. It's safe to say that I know this movie fairly well, and the image presented on this Blu-ray is a revelation. I'm simply amazed by how much this movie benefits from a high definition, 1080p transfer. Sure, there are some problems, but Commando will never be five-star material on Blu-ray or any future format for that matter. The source is over twenty years old but aging rather well, but not as refined and polished as movies of more recent vintage. There are some minor speckles on the print, grain is almost always present and spikes in certain scenes, and the image appears a bit soft every now and again, but for the most part, the positives far outweigh the negatives. Detail is much higher than I expected it to be, as was clarity and definition. Colors are rich and clearly defined, though somewhat pastel in appearance, but that's just the way movies looked in the late 1970s and 1980s (Dawn of the Dead comes to mind as a movie with similar-in-appearance colors). Nighttime scenes sport surprisingly good black levels. The 1080p transfer highlights a few blue screen effects as plainly obvious, notably when Matrix and Cindy take off in the sea plane. My meager expectations for this disc were far surpassed, and I'm simply impressed.


Commando Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fox's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track blew me away, and it was like hearing Commando for the first time. Much like the video, this is a revelation, a completely engaging, powerful experience. Like the video, it doesn't live up to the extremely clean, immersive, and realistic bars set by the best tracks I've heard, but this one makes for an absolutely perfect compliment to the feel of the movie, and impressed me as much as any other track out there, all things considered. May of the "problems" are more a result of the source than the disc. Some of the sound effects are pretty dated, like when Cooke drives the car through the showroom window at the beginning, but it's a fun sounding effect anyway, just like the movie. We get the same experience, only about 100x more powerful, when Matrix drives a dozer into the surplus store. James Horner's score is iconic and fantastic, definitely product of the 1980s (a lot of saxophone and synthesizer beats), and an overall entertaining listen. Surround channels work hard too, and there always seems to be something happening, be it a fly-by of a helicopter early in the film, loud, heavy gunfire, or the almost nonstop music. Arnold's punches and kicks pack quite a punch, resonating with hard-hitting, authoritative goodness. It's a cacophony, but it woks very well anyway. Gunshots reverberate and punch you in the gut, rattling the subwoofer and emanating all around the listening area. A scene in chapter 5, where Matrix is chained to a table, sounded a bit awkward, as if a breeze was blowing by, sounded more like undefined noise than wind. A minor quibble, and maybe its there by design, but it sounded a bit awkward anyway. I was most entertained and impressed by the mix, and like the video, the lossless sound mix far, far surpasses the downscaled, very weak in comparison mixes of the VHS and DVD versions I've heard countless times.
