Notes:  Man of Steel could have been EPIC!  Instead, it's a huge disappointment in terms of bass.  The sound mix has no extension, and was just spotty all-around for LFE effects.  Sometimes, huge stuff happened on screen and there was almost nothing below 80Hz, such as when the terraforming device plants itself in the Indian Ocean.  Then, there were other times when rather mundane stuff is happening on screen and there was lots of high bass, such as every time a beetle-shaped ship flew by. 


I've read a bunch of reviews online - all absolutely raving about the LFE - but I cannot believe anyone who has a capable system would think this mix was good in terms of LFE.  The whole track was just so inconsistent, I wouldn't give it more than a 2 for execution - it loses for the complete lack of extension, but mostly for sound design that really had me wondering if my amp had shut down at various points.  It's another great opportunity squandered by Hollywood.






Poll closed.  3 Stars and Rent.
