Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Stuffy premieres, red carpets, pretentious filmgoers… sometimes you gotta take a break from that kinda stuff and remember to have fun. That’s why I chose to bring this pic from the making of Commando along with me to Cannes.
Sometimes your action movies only need to be about big dumb fun and that’s what this movie is. Commando is overloaded with charisma, over-the-top action set pieces and one-liners and my theory is that when people think fondly back on ‘80s action films, whether they want to admit it or not, Commando is one of the first that jumps to mind. I mean, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character is introduced CARRYING A FUCKING TREE ON HIS SHOULDER. Not a cut of wood, not a large branch… a whole fucking tree. Yessir.
