Not surprisingly, they talk about the editing process and all of the footage they cut and how much information they wanted to give the audience in a given scene. Carnahan points out the nods to some of his favourite filmmakers, like Francis Ford Coppola, Michael Mann and Martin Scorsese. The two men also talk about the variations that they tried for certain scenes in what amounts to a pretty decent track.

This is a looser track as everyone cracks jokes and basically has a good time talking about making this movie. Carnahan riffs on Ben Affleck’s bad pool playing and tends to dominate while the others tell a few anecdotes. While the first commentary is more filmmaking-oriented, this is a fun, entertaining track.
