Quote of the Day! – Commando

John, I’m not going to shoot you between the eyes. I’m going to shoot you between the balls.” – Commando (1985)

commando bennettWhat’s more terrifying than being hunted down by South American terrorists? Getting your cock shot clean off by their leader when he looks like FREDDIE MERCURY ON GROWTH HORMONES!

Vernon Wells’ over the top performance as Bennett in Commando is an ’80s treasure.  A mixture of campness, vulnerability, ego and insanity.  Everything you need from a true action movie bad guy.

  1. Fun Facts:

    Vernon Wells (Bennett) was the second choice for the part after the original actor was fired a few days in for being to much of a pussy.

    The fictional South American country used in the plot is Val Verde which is also in Predator and Die Hard 2.

    The only thing that made Vernon Wells scary was that you were worried you might get bummed by him, otherwise he was one of the reasons that Commando was one of Arnie’e poorer films
