Bryan Singer does a great job. For some reason the commetary on X-Men was better.

Very good commentary from Singer and his cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel, however the chemistry between Singer and Sigel is not on par with Singer and McQuarrie (Of the Usual Suspects commentary track) or Brian Peck (of the X-Men 1.5 track)
Sigel's sarcastic and playful humor occasionally leads the commentary 'off track', but there is still plenty of trivia and anecdotes.
The only truly upsetting aspect of the commentary is towards the end when Singer starts discussing the possibilities for X-Men 3, which unfortunately would never happen with Singer at the helm.

It's ok. One peeve I have is, when you get a DP in your commentary - why not get him to talk more about his craft the way Carpenter grilled Kibbe on "In the Mouth of Madness" track?

Fairly informative and entertaining. Singer and Sigel discuss the usual topics, offering the odd anecdote here and there.

Another great commentary! The different participants complement each other well, and they manage to give a compelling 134 minutes without repeating what was said in the other commentary.

The two commentaries on the disc are great companion-pieces, they're both really good "listens", with good insights into the different aspects of the making of the movie with mercifully sparce time dedicated to the technical stuff, like the FX et al.

A superb commentary. All involved are clearly passionate about X-men and proud of the finished film. I actually expected the writers to be the ones geeking out over the characters, and so I was pleasantly surprised to hear producer auren Schuler Donner reeling off X-Men trivia and her ideas for subsequent films. A fun track with all involved clearly enjoying their time talking about this brilliant film.

I found this commentary to be better than the Singer/Sigel one. The Producers are always fascinating to listen to, even though a lot of time is spent birefly pointing out things that are (I can only assume) pretty obvious to the viewers. When X is digital by Y is real, etc..

I recommend this is you're a big X-Men movie fan. If not, then you can skip it and you won't have lost out on much.
