    Overall wowed by the Dunkirk soundtrack.
    Just wondered did anyone notice a slightly louder volume from the dogfight scenes than from the rest of the film,or might it just be my system balance ?

    I think its just the way its mixed, seems to be pretty normal for Nolan films as I remember turning up Interstellar trying to make out what they were saying then the music would cut in and BOOM the doors were shaking :eek:

    Watched The Dark Knight last Friday and I swear Batmans punches had more bass to them than the artillery shells in Dunkirk lol

    Same with Inception. I always sit with my finger on the remote vol button when watching a Nolan film.

    Perhaps Nolan is trying to portray just how noisey the cockpit of a Spitfire really is. Big old lump of a Merlin up front and all the creaks and grones of the airframe are really well done. Take a look at some of the Spitfire videos on You Tube, they will give you a good insight. As far as the overall soundtrack of Dunkirk I thought it was superb.
