I have to agree with the other commentary writer you mentioned that the leadup to this was great but the ending left a little to be desired. High productions values and attention to detail abound, but the lesson that the good short story or film is only as good as its climax was somehow ignored. It just goes to show how important the script is to proceedings. As a Masters Film it was only average. I expected better from the director of Sahara, a good fun satisfying movie. But it is worth the watch for the visuals and the good sound design (which admittedly at times grated on the senses - less is more).
