Robbins and Bacon appear together for this moderately busy track, which contains a lot of interesting info. However, Robbins has a somewhat lethargic voice, the rhythm of which can become a little tedious. Note that there are also Charlie Rose interviews with each actor on the 3-disc version and there may well be some crossover - haven't watched them yet.

Still, it's a good, intelligent track and if - like me - you found the ending of this film a bit of a let-down, their comments may go at least some of the way towards changing your mind.

Boring! So boring. These guys should not do commentaries, at least not together. They say very little, itís more like they just watch the movie together. And I got the feeling they kept each other down. It was like they were afraid to say something for themselves and tried to involve the other one in everything. I think the pressure to say something would be much more evident if they had done two single tracks. Iím sure that would be boring too, but at least they would feel the need to fill airtime. That said, at times they loosen up a littel, and the best thing is when they talk about how the set of a Clint Eastwood movie is compared to all others. 4/10
