Schwarzenegger in Commando

Commando Arnold Schwarzenegger Rocket Launcher Drawing
Let's go shopping

It's Valentine's Day, so to celebrate here's a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger with a rocket launcher from the movie Commando.

I think I've talked before about my Nan's VHS collection (her favourite film is Robocop) but Commando will always have a special place in my heart it earned through countless rewatches during summer holidays spent at her caravan in the South Wales seaside town of Porthcawl while rain drummed on the roof. The sea was always brown, the weather was always bad and the movies were always ultraviolent.

It's also one of the most ridiculous (and ridiculously entertaining) movies ever made, featuring my favourite absurd action movie hero character name of all time. Arnold Schwarzenegger's "John Matrix" beats off stiff competition from the likes of Casey Ryback (Steven Seagal in Under Siege), Chance Boudreaux (Jean-Claude Van Damme in Hard Target) and Marion 'Cobra' Cobretti (Sylvester Stallone in Cobra).

And for all those reasons, there's the thing that I drew above.
