Seems that the surround (and maybe height) info was put through a virtualizer when the soundtrack was downmixed to 2 channels (the audio on the YouTube video).

Most impactful for Atmos would be overhead (designated Top Middle), since that location will really highlight the difference between sounds around you vs sounds above you.
