boring commentary where the director mostly just goes over his shot selection and pre-planned camera moves and other technical aspects.

Sadly I agree with the first post. The director's commentary was as disengaged as his direction of the movie.

Stuart Baird needs to take some classes/lessons in speaking because he was quite boring to listen to. Totally bereft of any emotion and sometimes it was hard to hear what he was saying. Maybe he spoke this way because the movie bombed?

Underrated movie; somewhat underrated commentary. Baird has the same dry and elliptical style of speaking as, for example, Ridley Scott - whose commentaries, strangely enough, are all beloved here. I don't deny that the track is mediocre, but in all fairness to Baird he keeps the whole thing minimally interesting. To me, it was much better than listening to those awful multiple-speaker heavily edited commentaries.

Watching this film, you can really tell those who took it really seriously and tried to do the best job possible (Tom Hardy, Brent Spiner), and those who just walked through it, trying to do their own thing, like director Stuart Baird.

Definitely not exciting to listen to, and very unilluminating as to anything about the why the story went where it did, and the message behind everything.

This one deserves all the ill fame Baird's commentary got. Berman starts interesting, talking about the script, but quickly becomes bored to death ("A lot of wire removal here..."; "A lot of stunt work here..."), whispering as if he's about to fall asleep at any given moment. Pass.
