LFE is nigh on perfect, exactly supporting explosions and stopping dead when the effect is spent, no pointless after rumble of over zealous bass punch... but shockingly loud just when it needs to be. The soundtrack makes excellent use of all channels and is almost a reason in it's own to have this DVD, just to slap it in the player and sit through a 15 minute battle!!
The soundtrack is fantastic and really exercises the sound system with plenty of shock explosions to make you jump out of the seat, the direction blends equally well with the soundtrack making for some very interesting scenes. However the movie does get slow at times, perhaps longwinded where the initial adrenalin rush sets high expectations that are not met again until the end of the movie. Then there's the plot itself, on it's own quite a boring, seemingly confused story but taken with a pinch of salt is a man's mission to shock the viewer into appreciating current affairs of war, terrorism, social collapse and how ultimately it's the children who always suffer. Watch it and draw your own conclusions on that one, the movie gets a 6 from me but some would score it higher based on the message it sends.
