The Matrix Movie Series’ Homages to Commando (Arnold Schwartznegger)


The movie the Matrix has many homages in it to the movie Commando.
Check out this scene at 2:55 in this video of the mall fight in Commando where all the cops pile on Arnold and he throws them off–exactly like when all of those Agents pile on Neo and he throws them off. Here’s the Matrix Reloaded fight, the part is at 4:50-5:03.

Then there’s the scene where Arnold goes “shopping” for weapons…
at 1:32 in this video he discovers the secret room in the store filled with racks of like unlimited machine guns and other weapons…it’s EXACTLY like in the Matrix where the good guys go in that virtual room with like racks of like unlimited machine guns and other weapons

Here’s the Matrix homage to the Commando “shopping” scene:

Then of course, Arnold’s name is Colonel Matrix in the movie…yay!
