I'll cut to the chase, I thought this commentary was flat out boring. We get some of the standard complimenting of actors abilities and looks, with special focus given to Pierce Brosnan. Boorman compliments Brosnan on being relaxed on camera an keeps returning to it throughout the commentary, every now and then when Brosnan is on screen Borman will urge us to notice how relaxed he is. Weird, he's acted for several decades and the character is the epitome of relaxed so it's not a sensation that he acts that way.

He also seems proud of having cast Daniel Radcliffe before he was Harry Potter, giving him hyperbolic props for the way he acts in a certain scene.

The funniest part was when he revealed that Geoffrey Rush doesn't have a drivers license so everytime he drives in the movie they had to use different solutions to make it look like he's actually driving.

It was also interesting hearing about how they were allowed to shoot in the presidents abode and it looks just like it does in the movie.
