A decent enough commentary. Its not exactly rapid fire chatter but thats fine. its a relaxed affair with Director Martin Brest taking us through some of the changes made to the film over the course of pre-production and shooting. He only just touches upon the initial idea of Stallone starring in the film. And as far as i recall doesnt even mention Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer (the films producers)
Martin seems to have fond memories of the films production.

He also very briefly mentions that he was the original director of Wargames but was fired from it before he even got a chance to shoot in the NORAD set.

A commentary of the run-of-the-mill type, OK but mediocre. Martin Brest is clearly interested in random reminiscences and compliments to the actors, and doesn’t engage on a systematic narrative about any aspect of the movie. Overall, he’s nice to listen to and quite interesting sometimes.

I rather ho-hum commentary. Brest offers lots of breaks in commentary, getting wrapped up in watching the film. There are a couple of interesting notes here and there (the Beverly Hills PD station is fake). But not much here. It would be interesting to hear Eddie Murphy's commentary on one of his most iconic movies.
