    Has anyone found the dialogue to be quieter than the other parts of the film? I found this and I wondered if it was just my equipment?

    Have yet to steel myself for the task of seeing this on DVD - Some reviews describe it as reference quality, but when I saw it at my local cinema if choice(and hated every second of it) I found the sound mix to be all over the place.

    The dialogue was difficult to discern, the bass/LFE was off on holiday someplace else and the overall effect was far from impressive.

    This could be a case of my indifference to the film prompting me to tune out and miss some of the sound mix's subtleties, but I don't think so. Perhaps the low mix on the dialogue track was to disguise the fact that "Men In Black 2" had no script to speak of...:rolleyes:

    Can´t say I noticed a problem with the dialogue myself, have to agree that the LFE was a bit lacking, rest of the audio is fine. Film is crap but the actual dvd video quality is top notch.

    Nothing wrong with MiB2. Not as good as MiB1 but still good fun.

    I thought the whole soundtrack was recorded a little lower than most others.

    Tommy Lee Jones looked as interested in MIB2 as myself- bored bored bored. Stinker, predicatable. MIB 1 is okay I guess.

    I liked Men In Black 2, I found the dialog fine but the high range treble was very soft in comparision to the rest of the soundtrack.

    The original Men In Black soundtrack sounds very good on my setup much better than the second.
