Commando remake? Sacrelige!

From worstpreviews, Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1985 film "Commando," features the California governor in his prime. The muscles are big, the action is extreme and the lines are corny. Apparently, the film is so good that the Russians decided to remake it.

The name of the new movie is "Day D," which is directed by Mihail Porechenkov, who also stars. The film is word for Russian word the same as "Commando," except for a very awkward snowmobile scene. There is even a scene from the original when Arnold drops Sully (David Patrick Kelly) from a cliff and tells Cindy (Rae Dawn Chong)... "I let him go." In this remake, Porechenkov says "I didn't lie to him." I'm guessing that only moments ago, he told whoever he was holding that he would let him go and then kept his word. Check out the trailer below and see for yourself.

Awesome! It's like they "Sweded" Commando, except that Russifying it has more actual explosions.

I would totally watch this.
