Stahelski and Leitch give a very enthusiastic commentary, sometimes they are too giddy about stunts and fight sequences but this is their specialty and they do it very well, so no qualms for that. They discuss balancing the tone of the movie, striving to keep it at a larger than life heightened reality level appropriate to a film derived from a graphic novel. They also sought to avoid revenge movie tropes while respecting and honoring them. They speak to working with Keanu and the other actors, noting how all were committed to training. Overall, this is a worthwhile and engaging commentary that covers most aspects of set design, lighting, cinematography, casting, music, and sound design.
