In Commando, you control a lone solider as he infiltrates various enemy camps for the sole purpose of rescuing hostages and casing casualties.
Even the shot of the Commando eating grub, shaving or smoking a cigarette after he defeated the level is a nice touch.

 All-Reviews.com Movie/Video Review: Commando
The only "ramboid" that I actually liked, and, I still like, causing certain feeling of guilt about it, is COMMANDO by Mark L. Lester, one of those rare big studio projects that jumped on RAMBO 2 bandwagon.
Actually, it proved to be quite succesful vehicle for rising star of Arnold Schwarzenegger and one of the most popular action movies in that decade (that would later bring such a masterpieces as PREDATOR and DIE HARD).
COMMANDO is hardly a masterpiece, suffering mostly from the uninspired soundtrack by James Horner (mostly re-write of his work in 48 HRS) and the song that beats Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" in "the cheasiest song of all times" category.

 Commando
The Commando tool lets you create and execute a command line for any MPW command, tool, or script by using specialized Macintosh dialog boxes called Commando dialog boxes instead of the ordinary command-line method.
When you use a Commando dialog box and its controls to specify your options and choices, MPW efficiently composes a syntactically correct command line for that command.
Commando writes to standard output the command line you subsequently create when you click the "do it" button to close the dialog box.
