Just picked up a copy of this - solely based on this review! ;-). Really looking forward to sitting back and enjoying some mindless sonic entertainment. Thanks for the thorough review - great as always!

I was absolutely mesmerized by the audio of the movie. It's my "show off" movie now. It replaced The Dark Knight.

Alright... Watched it. The audio is absolutely off the hook! It gave my bass shakers a huge workout... Crisp aound coming from all over -- directionality of sound is spot on. The battle in the city began to feel like an amusement park ride!!! For what it is - very cool stuff.

Its such an awesome feeling when the transformers change for vehicles to autobots and back as you get to hear that wonderful change happening throughout your room. .
Totally agree with this! The cringing/clanging/crunching noise are just awesome; so is the left/right effect.

Can anybody think of a better movie to flex the home theater muscle? Only 2 that I can think of and that's Battle Los Angeles and The Dark Knight. I think I've seen it about 5 times now. It's my show off movie and a couple of my buddies are putting together systems after watching it.

I completely agree with the review. Great audio and video throughout the movie as well as some very good action scenes. The story leaves a lot to be desired but this is a very good fun action movie. 7/10

Hello,
Green Zone was strangely one of the best sounding BD's I have ever viewed. Dark Knight is a definite Reference Disc as well as you wrote. In addition, The A-Team (Film), Star Trek (2009), X-Men: First Class, and Braveheart (Sapphire Series) are also great sounding BD's.
Cheers,
JJ

I never would have thought of Green Zone. I've seen it but it was before my current setup. I'll have to give it a spin. Thanks JJ

I enjoyed the audio in this movie as well, though I really hope that if they continue this story that they improve plot. And get a lead actress that can act.
