Snyder tends to dominate the track, pointing out images in the film that come straight from Frank Miller’s comic book. He has an annoying habit of continually pointing out what was added later with CGI by often saying, “That’s a CG shot,” and so on. There are also too many lulls as the participants get caught up in watching the film. This is a pretty disappointing track. Watch the featurettes instead.

A very boring commentary track. Snyder's just too in love with the visuals he created when what should be of more concern is the translation of the graphic novel onto the screen. All Zack seems to want to talk about (& he dominates the track) is how many shots contain CGI, which accounts for about 99% of the finished film anyway. Don't waste your time on this one, just watch the film for brainless entertainment.

Most of this commentary is Zack pointing out what is CGI and what is taken from the comic book. Very boring. The other two guys are very quiet and almost say nothing the whole movie. Don't waste your time.

One of the worst commentary tracks I've heard. They clearly did not prepare anything for it at all. Most of the comments alternate between "that came straight from the graphic novel" and "that was cool". Waste of time.

You will not learn anything from this commentary that is not better shown and explained in the various making of clips available. The track deserved better considering the history and technique used to make the film.
