! Trivia entries for the film ''Film/{{Commando}}'':

* DuelingMovies: This film was an attempt to capitalize on the growing popularity of the OneManArmy genre (started by Stallone's ''Film/RamboFirstBloodPartII'', which, like this film, was set during the UsefulNotes/ColdWar), and simultaneously a vehicle to market Arnie as a hero after his StarMakingRole as a villain in ''Film/TheTerminator''.
* ForeignRemake: ''D-Day'', 2008 Russian remake of the film.
* HeyItsThatPlace: The mansion where the final shootout between Matrix and [[BigBad Arius]] took place is the same mansion where the final shootout between Axel Foley and Victor Maitland took place in ''Film/BeverlyHillsCop''.
* NamesTheSame / RecycledTitle: ''Commando'' is also the name of a long running British ComicBook series set in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Of all people, Bennett the psycho villain was played by an actor who is a very nice person off camera, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjkp-Qtq2Ss as Arnie himself recalls]].
* TechnologyMarchesOn
** Matrix's daughter would have been dead within ''seconds'' of him being spotted by Sully at the mall if this film was set in the late 1990s. Also Matrix could've called General Kirby on a cellphone once he got off the plane.
* VisibleBoomMic: Seen in the reflection of a car window when Bennett's vehicle drives away after dropping off Matrix at the airport[[note]]In other words, after Arnold utters, "I'll be back."[[/note]], along with the reflection of the boom operator in a lavender shirt.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Originally, the lead role was written for [[Music/{{KISS}} Gene Simmons]].
** The final fight between Matrix and Bennett was supposed to take place on an island that was in the middle of a naval exercise between the USMC and the USN (actually referenced by the radio chatter when Matrix steals the seaplane). Unfortunately, the film used up its special effects budget killing hundreds of mooks.
** This was originally offered to John [=McTiernan=] of ''Film/{{Predator}}'' and ''Film/DieHard'' fame.
** A sequel was planned, but Arnie didn't want to do it, so the concept was recycled into ''Film/DieHard''.

!Trivia entries for the ''ComicBook/{{Commando}}'' comic book series:

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Averted... kind of. Not only has D.C. Thomson & Co. started putting out oversized trade paperbacks of some of classic stories, but every month they usually have at least four stories that are reprints of stories that are at least a few decades old.
