Classic Schwarzenegger action movie, cheapest I could find online.

After his daughter (Alyssa Milano) is kidnapped by a South American dictator, retired Army Colonel John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger), once the leader of a special commando strike force, swings into violent action.

you beat me to it.
Let off steam Bennet!!! love it when he throws his whatever it is and chops the top part of that guys head off..:D

hows the transfer?

Cindy: You steal my car, you rip the seat out, you kidnap me, you ask me to help you find your daughter which I very kindly do, and then you get me involved in a shoot out where people are dying and there's blood spurting all over the place, and then I watch you rip a phone booth out of a wall, swing from the ceiling like Tarzan, and then there's a cop that's going to shoot you and I save you and they start chasing me. Are you going to tell me what's going on or what?
Matrix: No.

According to reviews, the Blu-ray is the best release to date PQ/ AQ wise of the film.

Also has a DTS-HD 5.1 Mix.

The review I just read (High Def Digest) suggested quality wasn't up to normal standards for Blu Ray transfers, but seems a good price...

AHAHAHAHAHAAHAA! love it

excuse me, don't disturb my friend, he's dead tired

Matrix: [reading about Boy George in a pop magazine] Why don't they just call him Girl George? It would cut down on the confusion.

I like you Sulley, you're a funny guy. that's why i'm going to kill you last.

Cooke: You scared, ****? Well, you should be, because this Green Beret is going to kick your big ass!
Matrix: I eat Green Berets for breakfast. And right now, I'm very hungry!

Let's take Cook's car, he won't be needing it.

Is this cut like the r2 dvd?? My region 1 dvd doesnt play anymore on this new
technology, could be doing with an update.

Your daughter is safe, Colonel. Now whether she stays that way is up to you. My people, they got some business with you. And if you want your kid back, then you gotta co-operate, right?

Wrong!

Great movie. Unfortunately it's well know that Commando and Predator are heavily censored for our region. get Region1/A if your device supports it.

apparently its uncut?

I don't need the knife John (twirling fingers in a strange way).

So bad it's good.

Where's Sully?

I let him go!

Bennet: 'I love listening to your ****-ant soldiers talking tough, they make me laugh... if matrix was here, he'd laugh too!'

yes the copy i bought off ebay, which is the same as amazon sells

mine is uncut, i have just this minute been downstairs and checked, mine does have those scenes in that list

but the timings are different to the list, mine was behind time wise

like the pitchfork and axe, machete bits at the famous "shed scene" were not at 71 mins 36 secs, but later by a couple of minutes (didn't memorise the exact time)
