    For anyone who has The R1 disc - What do you think of the DTS soundtrack? To me it seems very flat with little in the way of surround effects.For instance in the fight scene when the arrows are flying around,there is more surround action in the trailer!!!
    Anyone else notice this?
    Regards,John G

    Sounded okay to me.
    It wasn't the most vivid of surround tracks, but it had effects in the rears during the fight sequences.

    Ok to me as well. Its just not a very active surround mix thats all.

    If you want to here a naff soundtrack check out R2 Traffic, Shrek will seem positively amazing afterwards!!

    I too found it to be very lacklustre.

    Some Directors go for a minamilist approach while others like to 'let it all hang out' when it comes to the surround sound mix.
