Stallone is quite good as a commentator. He is informative and keeps the pace up. You can not ask for much more.

Stallone is always good to listen to. He's interesting, tells great stories and is usually quite funny. This commentary lacks some humour but he adds enough information to make it worthwhile. There are gaps here and there but it's fairly full of gab. Not bad.

Not gonna' lie, I was hoping that this commentary would've been better. I had a feeling that this track would either be really great or really terrible, but it was just sort of adequate.

There's a few interesting nuggets dropped here and there, but between the periods of dead air (more than there should've been) and Sly just pointing out the reasons for doing things (like saying "This dialogue is strange, but so are these guys"), there wasn't a whole lot to keep me interested.

Definitely a movie where I wish Stallone was joined by either the writer(s) and producer(s) or had a second track of at least *some* of the big-name actors involved.

After 15 minutes I was thinking I would say, Stallone is rather quiet, is mostly describing what we see, but is still interesting for the tidbits we get about why he chose to do things a certain way.

But then after the first few scenes, we start getting long silent gaps, separated only by what I can best describe as Stallone describing what we can all see on the screen. And it only gets more terrible as it drags on.
