commando

“Listen, loyalty is very touching. But it is not the most important thing in your life right now! But what IS important is gravity! I have to remind you Sully, this is my weak arm!” Ah memorable Quotes from the film Commando. The score is of course done by James Horner and is pretty classic for the time. It was one of Arnold Schwarteneggers better films even with all the very 80’s clothing in the movie.

Here is the basic plot…Retired Special Forces soldier John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger) lives with daughter Jenny (Alyssa Milano) in isolation, but his privacy is disturbed by former commander Franklin Kirby (James Olson), who warns him that his fellow soldiers are getting killed one by one. After Kirby leaves, Jenny is kidnapped by former Latin American dictator Arius (Dan Hedaya), who wants Matrix to restore him to power. Instead, Matrix sets out to take down the rogue leader and rescue his daughter.

As I’ve said before the music is classic and it doesn’t take itself too seriously. This was James Horner at his peak time doing movie scores. In fact he did a lot of Arnold films.

Here is the Amazon Link to the score.
