So I've gone back and checked this again. I've listened to this moment probably a dozen times. There *has* been *some* effort made to put things right, but it's still very wrong. The explosion *is* correct (has the old pewwww! sound that was missing before), but the gun shots are *way* too loud. And it *does* cover up Brody's last line to the shark. Now, to be fair...it's not *completely* gone like it was in the 5.1 version, but all but. You *really* have to know it's there to hear it, and strain hard to hear it at that. Not at all as clear or audible as on the mono version. I'd say this mix is maybe 20% back to the sensibilities of the mono track as far as sound aesthetics. As I said - some effort was put into it to pull it back from where it was. But it still sucks. I'll definitely be going with the mono track.
