Default 'Commando' - High-Def Digest Review

Kenneth's review of 'Commando' has been posted. He says the film doesn't live up to his nostalgic memories, but many viewers will be able to enjoy it for the 80's actionfest that it is. He was especially disappointed in this Blu-ray, which features an average video transfer, a lackluster audio package, and zero supplements. With a supplements pack standard DVD Director's Cut recently released, his verdict on this one is to skip it.

This is one of the titles Fox pulled last year when AACS was cracked. We waited a year for the same bare bones, mpeg2 transfer for $40????

Fox back to shit old habits with these two latest releases. I know the source material for both this and predator would'nt have been the best, but it still pisses me off becuase Fox can deliver the goods when they want to (I,robot).

Considering how poorly FMJ first release was... This looks like the same along with Pred.

Skip them both. This is Blu Ray get it right and get it perfect.

I just watched commando and I feel it's about 3.5 star PQ. It's no I'Robot but it's a hell of alot better than the sd dvd version. well worth it in my book. considering the master wasn't in prestine condition to begin with I believe Fox did a great job. the sharpness was a little too much and there is edge enhancement. but they cleaned it up well. Predator is well done also. these movies are classics, any slight upgrade is always worthy of a new purchase.

This movie will never look great. It'll never have a 4 star or 5 star PQ...saying "FOX do it perfect or I'm not buying it" is just an ignorant statement.

I'm not advocating you spend $40 or even $30 for it, but if you like the movie, this might be as good as it gets for PQ.

If you don't like the movie....why are you in this thread?
