I watched this last night and I have to rewatch it. I missed lots of detail as I was tired before starting it. The video quality is amazing and the sound track is incredibly dynamic, one of the most dynamic discs I've ever played. Bass in this flick is a beast and will kick you in the chest again and again.

I am really surprised by your comments on the audio, I have played around with it quite a bit, albiet on a much smaller setup due to my new speakers not arriving yet. I honestly thought it was one of the worst sound mixes in a movie to date, in regards to dialogue. Yes it has great bass, but the sound mixing makes it extremely difficult to hear conversations, i played it with closed captions.

I felt the bass when I went to theater to see it.

I wonder how much was due to this...


Clipping completely ruined Dunkirk for me. Even at -30 MV it sounded like my speakers were roached. Dumb...

Thats what I mean by dynamic. To hear the dialog, you had to play it louder than most movies and they did not roll back the loud parts. I too had to fiddle with the remote constantly. I didnt say it was clean. Just dynamic. I have to rewatch it as I missed lots of detail as I was tired. Maybe this time, I will watch it with Adaptive DRC on.

In a other forum, it was mentioned that the director is known to screw with the center channel mix and has done so with movies like Interstellar.

I felt about the same, dynamic scenes simply had the gain WAY up to absurd levels. The only scene that I thought it made scenes in was the gunfire in the concrete hallway toward the beginning of the movie.

It’s a bad movie!!!
Yeah, I am not impressed with this movie at all regarding any aspects, technical or creative.

Plot was confusing and nothing special. Soundmix was just loud and uneven. No Atmos or DTSX. Video was shot using ANALOG film, instead of 8K Digital cameras. Absolutely nothing special IMO.

If you sit back and start to really think about the movie, it becomes more brilliant.

I wasn't sure how I felt about it upon initial viewing myself. I'm usually a big fan of Christopher Nolan movies. My initial gut reaction to this movie was a 6.5 or 7/10. After mulling it over for a few days, and having a few conversations about it with my son, I've since bumped it up to a solid 8/10.

I will admit that the sound mixing wasn't great, and some dialogue (particularly the opening scenes in the concert hall) were hard to decipher. Reminded me a bit of the way they handled Bane in The Dark Knight.

That aside, John David Washington and Robert Pattison were both excellent in that movie. That's actually the first time I've watched a movie with Pattison in it, in fact I didn't even know he was in it until he showed up on screen. I was very impressed with his acting abilities. He seems to have grown out of the typecast of those Twilight movies. Hopefully this bodes well for his portrayal of batman in the upcoming movie.
