^^ it is because it has the loudest lowest sound ever made at the intro. The rest of the movie has good but not great bass. I love the movie.

Yeah, I like the intro. The movie's not terrible either, just wasn't impressed by the bass except for the beginning. Thanks..

I've grown to hate that intro. It is great for demo/testing purposes, but I don't like it from an execution standpoint in relation to the rest of the bass in the film. I would also agree that as a front to back LFE film EoT is good, not great. No doubt in my mind that if that ridiculous and out of place intro did not exist, this bass track would not be talked about anywhere near as much as it has been!

Please report your findings on HALO NIGHTFALL -- was curious myself for exactly that same reason -- the previous installment.

Also the trailer for MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT, which was on EVERLY and in glorious DD 5.1, absolutely pummeled with LF tremors -- so been curious about that one as well, though it is most certainly the case that those enticing teasers can turn out to be quite misleading as to movie content itself. MONSTERS about ready for release, but if someone rents that, I need to know what the actual damage factor might be....be warned that almost all sources seem to indicate the movie is hideous in every other regard (...looked great to me, but there is that trailer factor again...)

Yup! as soon as Everly was over I put Monsters Dark Continent in the Que at the top but just may blind buy it

Yeah! its grossly misplaced and lends nothing to the movie even though the movie itself is one of my new all time fav's.

Yeah, might blind buy myself -- shows about $16 for pre-order. The trailer planted such a declarative LF banner, it would really be one of the more notable total betrayals if the flick didn't live up to it...but of course it has been known to happen. Hey, if I can get you to jump in first, maybe you'll end up saving me some money, or maybe I'll be the one that plunges -- comes out in a few weeks I think -- I'll keep you posted...

Bummer! Had a forum friend tell me the bass was good which is why I rented. Really curious to see it now and see what I think.

I never watch that intro it's too gratuitous. Take the intro out and IMO this film is a great bass flick. The bass gives a constant sense of doom conveying the reality of the situation being faced by the characters. Throw in a presentation that's as clean as a whistle with a few heavy hitting sequences and it's a pretty complete package. I know you don't agree with this Toe. . I give it five stars all day long and it was my equal favourite bass movie from last year. As I've said before run it a bit hotter than normal to bring out the goodness that's there. It was voted second by a whisker on data bass for LFE film of the year (behind CATWS) so it must have something pretty special and it's a good movie to boot.

Yes I am an EOT fanboy!

Also the trailer for MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT,
RENT! RENT! RENT!

Neither one has any 'good bass' to speak of, there's a couple ok moments in Halo and Monsters: DC is just an overall terrible movie

Well damn! I might just skip Halo altogether as I don't have a ton of movie time these days. I'm guessing the movie will be terrible going off the first, so if the bass isn't anything great I might just stick it back in the mailbox.

No worries AJ72! I certainly respect your opinion and there is a subjective element to what a great bass track is for a variety of reasons.

That's a shame there is no good bass for the trailer did light up the room a bit, I had hope's.

As for a terrible movie I also had hope's it would be better then the first one. When I added it to my Netflix queue after seeing the preview on the Everly disc it also brought up the first one and I only rated it two stars.

Well dang it! It kills me that the marketing folks know full well the value of presenting a movie with massive awesome LF bombast in the trailer, but can't seem to carry that concept through to the movie. They obviously know what sells, why not just give us the movie we want? Thanks for the info wpbpete -- I'm assuming you had some way of seeing the MONSTERS blu before the release date? I was seriously favoring the blind buy, but guess you saved me...what a burn!

Was that a disc he had or streaming? I'm going to at the very least give it a rental, as its the same production company that's been belting out some pretty decent bass tracks

Well, good question -- you've opened a window of hope there -- I never stream, and nothing I've ever seen or heard makes me think that discs are not the way to go. Must be talking about the blu for definitive declarations! -- even then, people can disagree about satisfaction factor with LFE -- some wide disparity with EXODUS, I note.

But when it is said there is -zero- LF content, that tends to suggest to me it must be pretty light in that regard. Hopefully it would be too unthinkable for the filmmakers in this case to so emphatically represent the flick as LF monster, but absolutely betray and abandon that aspiration with the actual commodity -- I guess we await clarification one way or another...

FilmMixer has previously mentioned that the folks mixing the trailer are oftentimes NOT the folks who mixed the soundtrack. Apparently, depending on personal viewpoints, the trailer audio mixers are either a) heavy-handed, or b) know what sells/catches attention.

I agree with you about the intro… At first it was intriguing but after experiencing it a couple of times it lost it's appeal. The movie (IMO) is a very good bass movie but not incredible. The movie itself on the other hand I find to be a lot of fun and great to watch.

Thanks for that Max. If I'm not mistaken, FilmMixer did THE PURGE: ANARCHY, so has my utmost respect for what he can offer on this subject. I'm sure they are not the same folks -- two different objectives, that of producing a track consistent with a Director's vision, versus generating a basso-bombasto, flamboyantly senses-titillating, attention-grabbing short intended to market that thing.

Where my incredulity rises is in the fact that the studios demonstrate they know what entices an audience's interest, then allow that misrepresentation to stand for the film that got made, which may contain none of that excitement. Why not just ensure the public gets the goods with commodity being marketed? Films are always an interplay between "art" and commerce -- so if the director's vision seems to require enhancement by the lay-it-to-waste bass-ty boys brought in for the trailer, send 'em in for the flick as well!

...Anyway, remains to be seen if MONSTERS: DC contains anything of the promise of the trailer, but possibly by all accounts, only about 3 minutes of film was any good anyway...

EoT is a very good movie, IMHO, and has way above average bass. IMHO, EoT kicks Interstellar in the proverbial ass...Interstellar does have better bass, however! Everyone likes movies for different reasons. And I think the intro of EoT really sets the tone that this movie will be fast and furious.

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub

Ended up watching Nightfall. The bass had it's moments, but nothing super deep. The bass moments were spread out more evenly vs the first film. The first film was more impressive for bass due to how packed it was in that last 30 minutes plus it hit a bit deeper in the first as I remember. Both movies were horrible IMO.
