Synopsis:

Former head of a special commando strike team, Colonel John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a soldier without peer. And because he's lead so many special ops assignments, he's been "retired" in order to protect him from retaliation. But now a vicious South American dictator that has a deadly grudge against Matrix has tracked him down and kidnapped his daughter Jenny (Milano). To get her back, Matrix is forced back into action and must return to South America for one last mission: kill President Velasquez - at any cost!

The vintage Schwarzenegger film that helped to cement his world-renowned action hero status following the huge success of The Terminator, Commando was produced by mega action icon Joel Silver (The Matrix) and quickly became another "Arnold action classic" - and is now being re-released as a special Director's Cut DVD on September 18th from Fox Home Entertainment. Schwarzenegger (Total Recall) stars as a retired special operations soldier who engages in a vengeful rescue mission to save his kidnapped daughter from enemy hands. Recognized for its unapologetic non-stop explosive action, Commando gloriously infuses non-stop car chases, punch ups, gun fights and explosions with a unique blend of humor and quick one-liners that became Arnold's signature style. The film also stars Alyssa Milano (Charmed), Rae Dawn Chong (Soul Man), Dan Heyada (Swimfan), David Patrick Kelly (Flags of Our Fathers) and Bill Duke (Predators).
