Not the best. As one might expect, the duo talk mostly about changes made in the editing room, a bit here and there about what was removed for the theatrical release and what they reinserted for this extended version. Bowman speaks to the frustration of using visual effects and the time spent waiting for their rendering. They note that this film was rushed through the production process which impacted some creative decisions. Time and money restrictions hindered some ideas and visions they had for scenes but they do feel that they were able to cobble together the material well in the editing room. There are increasingly more short silent gaps as the final hour of the film unfolds. They are never chronic or terribly long gaps just more than to be expected for a film so short. Bowman and Stitt also team up to provide commentary on the deleted and extended scenes. They have little or nothing to say about a few of these selections. There is an Ben Affleck cameo among the excised material.
