Commando Review

What's Good:
Visuals and action are brilliant. Bad man Jaideep Alahwat makes you hate him & is a really fun villian.
What's Bad:
New girl Pooja Chopra's 'bak - bak', dull story, old-school plot, songs that don't do justice to the plot and few boring parts of drama.
Verdict:
Finally India get its first REAL Action Hero... Watch this one!
Watch or Not:
Vidyut Jamwal flies, jumps, dives, kicks, punches & more, doing stunt after stunt with insane panache and in full volumes! So its definitely worth a watch.

COMMANDO is vintage good versus evil saga in a strikingly new avatar. A high-voltage action fare that's racy, pulsating and packed with some adrenaline-pumping stunts. Watch it!
Critic Score: 3.5/5

Despite all the bravura technical effort that has clearly been put into Commando, the end result simply isn’t compelling enough to merit more than two stars.

Commando is a string of explosive sequences strung through a story which exists only for the purpose of showing one man, muscles rippling, scything through a mob. Again and again and again. Step out for the popcorn when the actors break into song; rush right back in when the fists start to fly.
Critic Score: 2.5/5

Make no mistake, Commando is a poor film. The thrills are never quite there and, all of Janwal's eagerness and leapfrog-skills aside, it must be remembered that a Bowie knife does not Rambo make.
Critic Score: 1.5/5

If you are an action junkie and if you have peaked on Sylvester Stallone's Rambo-series, then our desi Commando, is what you will term paisa-vasool entertainment. Note: You may not like the film, if pure action, is not your staple at the movies.
Critic Score: 3.5/5

Commando works because it makes no qualms about being an all-out action film that caters to the palate of those yearning to watch a fresh face in an arena crowded by ageing stars.

He is a commando. You don't know what's a Commando? Let the colonel tell you: He is equal to an army of 10,000 soldiers. I can see. Someday, make a proper film with him. We'd like to see that too.

Watch Commando for an unmatchable action packed performance, But if you aren’t an action fanatic, you might just end up disliking the film, as it does not have anything else to offer.

Watch 'Commando' only if you like action films and are a diehard fan of the genre.

So go watch the film if you like Ong Bak kind of fight scenes. This film is strictly for action junkies.

Vidyut carries the entire weight of Commando on his beefy shoulders and it is for him alone that you should watch this film.

Inspired by the movies of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme and several other thespians of testosterone, Commando is a showcase of Jamwal’s super-fit body and martial arts skills.
