The track is very nice and relaxed. Mr. Logan seems to know more about the movie than both ladies. He asks Mrs. Cheng some questions, some of which she can answer. They give out some nice information. They point out the people in the movie. Now I know what Yuen Woo-Ping’s father looks like. They even tell you where to find Ching Siu-Tung (a very young Ching Siu-Tung). They talk throughout the entire movie – Mr. Logan always finds something to say or ask. They even talk about Bruce Lee (he apparently smelled like incense). The Hong Kong studio system and suchlike are also talked about. Mrs. Cheng mentions the importance of the beggar character in Chinese folklore, how King Hu liked to work and many other interesting things. They keep things moving throughout the movie and always find something interesting to say. Mr. Logan says more than once that he finds Mrs. Cheng gorgeous in this movie (which gets kind of silly as the track goes on but I will say that the cover of the DVD does not do Mrs. Cheng justice at all). Good listen and it’s a shame Celestial doesn’t have more commentary tracks on their DVDs.
