The sound mix is surprisingly aggressive for a thriller, with most of the action taking place during the time travel sequences. Here the surrounds become busy with effects spinning 360 degrees around the sound field and the LFE adds some frightening bottom end to proceedings. Dialogue remains rich and intelligible throughout and the score uses the full soundstage with excellent dynamics on offer.
Comparing the DTS track against the Dolby flavour falls in favour of the DTS track for it's wider and spacious sound mix and tighter bottom end. This however doesn't mean that the Dolby track is lacking in anyway and if you are buying the R2 disc you will only have this track to choose from.
Moving on and we get a very good behind the scenes documentary which adds all the small videos together (from the Infinifilm feature) to cover the movie making process without too many back slapping each other. Also featured are a visual effects featurette, an explanation of chaos theory and a look at time travel movies and stories. Rounding off the package are deleted scenes including alternate endings and trailers
A surprisingly good movie with excellent performances and an unusual plot line. The disc is first class with some excellent extras. This R1 edition beats the R2 disc hands down, the UK disc misses the DTS track and the theatrical cut of the film so it has to be this R1, and it's a keeper.
