Forced to come out of retirement

In ‘Commando’, a retired special agent named John Matrix has left the armed forces to live in a secluded mountain home with his daughter, Jenny. But now, he is forced out of retirement when his daughter is kidnapped by a band of thugs intent on revenge.

Unbeknownst to Matrix, the members of his former unit are being killed one by one. Even though Matrix’ friend General Franklin Kirby gives him armed guards, attackers manage to kidnap Matrix and Jenny.
