This it pretty good. Kind of like the movie, good, but not great. Most participants give good comments, but what makes this good is the Hughes brothers and Ari, who is the real life subject of this movie. He tells us about being in vietnam and how the robbery came about. The Hughes brothers took the reality up a notch in the movie, for example there were to casualties in the real robbery. The brothers give a good review of how this movie was made, constantly pushing the budget and schedule. From time to time they point out how much things cost, like a brick wall cost 25 000, and added mountains in the background for to small shots came to 15 000 dollars. This like most criterion commentaries is edited, but itís better for it. Good, but not great. 7/10
