I hear that "The Book of the Acts" -- Bruce, F. F. is highly rated (NICNT). See: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/23223/173550.aspx#173550

Also this bibliographic effort: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/63727/579859.aspx#579859 

places a priority on:

*Bock, Darrell L.  Acts  (BECNT).  Grand Rapids: Baker, 2007.

 *Schnabel, Eckhard  J.  Acts  (ZECNT).  Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2012.

 *Peterson, David G.  The Acts of the Apostles  (PNTC).  Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2009.

 *Fernando, Ajith.  Acts  (NIVAC).  Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1998.

--One for each of the major commentary categories. I assume you also know about bestcommentaries.com

In my opinion, Bock's Baker Exegetical Commentary is outstanding. Behind it, I'd put the older NICNT by Bruce or the new NICNT by Doug Moo.

FD: My theology is reformed Baptist, and these recs reflect that.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

the new NICNT by Doug Moo

I think you're confusing this with his work on Romans from this series.  Moo has no Acts commentary in NICNT

Keener is probably the most thorough, and comes highly acclaimed.
