Commando - Exploding Towers -- No Explosives!
After Arnold invades the island, he plants some claymore mines inside the barracks of the feeble cannon-fodder foot soldiers. Claymore mines explode with hundreds of ball bearings; the claymore mine is an anti-personnel device with little "explosive" power. At any rate, Arnold plants the claymore mines in the barracks, all on the first floor. The barracks are flanked on either side by watchtowers. When Arnold detonates the mines, the barracks explode... as do the watch towers. It's not the framework leading to the watchtowers that explode, it is the rooms on top of the towers itself. If Arnold didn't plant anything in the towers, and the claymores are a low-explosive anti-personnel mine, how would the towers have suddenly erupted into flame and smoke? Absolutely a slip-up.

i do agree with your statement about the claymores. Although there are about 5 quick shots of Arnolds hands setting up the mines but you don't see where they are placed. So maybe they could have been in the watch towers. I watched it last week and i noticed the same things you did.

Yup, Claymores are meant to shred enemy infantry, not demolish buildings. Arnold would have to use a lot of C-4 plastic explosive to destroy those buildings the way it was done in this flick. The special effects guys also threw in some huge gasoline pits for extra flame action. Also, someone else has already posted about the mannequin enemy "soldiers" who don't move when the explosives go boom.
