A waste of time,
This review is from: Inception (Blu-ray + DVD) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
"Interesting" dynamic range for this film on Blu-ray. To hear the dialogue, I had to turn up the volume so loud that the frequent explosions and loud noises were loud enough for the street outside to shake. Appropriate for a film that seems to set out to be huge and flashy, yet "intellectual". In no way comfortable or entertaining to watch, this is the kind of film that would put people off Blu-ray, because the dynamic range on its soundtrack is not viable in most domestic environments, or for anyone with less than perfect hearing.
Pretentious is the word I'd use to describe the film. The frantic action of the first half hour was so irritating that I found I just didn't want to pay attention to the rest of it. I couldn't care less about the Leonardo di Caprio character, and there was no empathy with any other characters, with some good actors like Tom Hardy simply wasted. However brilliant the photography and effects, a good film needs so much more, such as a story that makes sense without having to watch it three times. As several reviewers have pointed out, the plot didn't even seem to follow its own internal logic. Thankfully, I borrowed this from the library rather than buying it. One to avoid.

you could try tinkering with your amp & sub settings if it's too loud/"bassey" for you. I have this on bluray and found the mix to be a benchmark in mixing and sound, really unbelievable quality. I had none of the issues you had, so either you have dodgy equipment/front speaker, or it need to be calibrated, OR you're too old!
