The first thing that he says is this movie is a guilty pleasure. He also says the fights are well done and that the unseen footage (used in the second disc of this set to make the mini-feature) might be a disappointment to some fans. That, though, is just personal interpretation and has nothing to do with the quality of the commentary. He also repeats himself a few times. As for the rest of the commentary, itís a typical Bey Logan track. He never stops talking about everything. He points out actors/stuntmen and what theyíre doing now, he talks about Sammo Hung a bit and talks about the movieís production. Itís never a waste of time and is as interesting as his other tracks. You can tell he really likes this movie and thatís always nice to hear. The most interesting thing to hear is who fights when. Listening to this, it seems like Yuen Biao didnít really fight much apart from jumps and jumpkicks. Also, he says the Sammo Hung thought fight scenes with Tang Lung and Yuen Biao that were first shot were unusable, so Robert Clouse let Mr. Hung shoot them himself. I still think Mr. Clouse had a lot to do with what ended up in the movie. Anyway, this is a very good track and is a nice addition to the movie.
