This is a nasty, brutish, not-short-enough motion movie; principally a kind of home-invasion stories wherein brutal criminals terrorise a household. On this case the crims are led by newly launched convict Johnny (Mickey Rourke, trying extra melted than traditional) and the household is a nuclear set-up led by James Baker (Michael Jai White), a DEA agent with PTSD. Johnny and co are supposedly attempting is to recuperate cash from a financial institution theft, hidden years in the past.
However on this usually reprehensible subgenre, it doesn’t matter why the baddies break in. What issues is that it entitles not less than one member of the terrorised household to battle again utilizing their distinctive expertise and, inevitably, armed power. Conspiracy-minded viewers may marvel if a few of these movies aren’t subsidised by pro-gun lobbyists as a solution to drum worry into the viewers and keep help for the best to maintain large dwelling arsenals to ward in opposition to a hazard with a vanishingly small likelihood in the actual world.
Produced, co-written and directed by Asif Akbar, The Commando comprises quite a few egregious implausibilities and cliches. For starters, Johnny’s henchmen are so silly and bloodthirsty they’ll’t even await the occupants to depart the home earlier than they invade. They only barge in whereas certainly one of Baker’s daughters is having a small occasion. A number of teenagers are shot, one whereas he’s having a wee and finally ends up spraying urine everywhere in the most violent of the dangerous guys, Dominic (Gianni Capaldi, distantly associated to Peter); this seems to be meant as a comic book spotlight.
Lastly, Baker and his spouse come dwelling and it ends, inevitably, with a collection of fisticuffs, gunfights and brawls earlier than good supposedly triumphs over evil, though one of many children has been raped. Maybe we are supposed to infer she deserved it for throwing a celebration whereas her people had been away; that tells you every thing concerning the supposed viewers for this pernicious nonsense.
