2. John Matrix in “Commando”

“Ver da fuck iss Chenny?  I reely need to fiynt CHENNY!  Eef any of dose scheissekopf  mit gans are looking at me again, I AM GOING TO BE SMASHING DEM VIV MY MACHINE GAN UNT FISTS!  Oh and you know ven I said that I vood kill you last?  Yes, you now ven I said that?  Vell, I LIED!”

The finale to 1985’s “Commando” is quite possibly the greatest one-man-army sequence in movie history.  Picture the scene:  John Matrix has infiltrated the bad guy’s villa to find his kidnapped daughter Jenny, but oh no!  There are absolutely tons of henchmen and they all have guns!  But oh yes!  John Matrix is the hardest most bullet-proof man in the world and he doesn’t even bat an eyelid as he wipes out the entire army.  If that wasn’t enough, he even has time for a knife fight with the lead bad guy, Bennett – before kindly allowing him to let off some steam.
