Speaking of Rambo, I also think First Blood holds up better

I'm not going to deny The Matrix was an overall detrimental influence, but by that standard so was Die Hard (and let's not even touch the sequels for now). But at the time, there was no American film like it, you could only compare it to stuff in the anime genre. Other films trafficked in some of the same ideas (13th Floor, Existenz, and Dark City all came out around the same time) but the aesthetic and application of these ideas to the story was all its own.
Commando is 80s schlock at its best. Also, I challenge you to come up with a schlock-free 80s action film. Maybe Raiders?
