Captain America: Civil War (Home Theater Review)

Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.


Video Review

The video was a good 4K quality reproduction. The colors popped and the image was crystal clear.

Sound Review

The surround sound speakers were definitely used in this movie but their volume levels aren't consistent. This isn't a case where the soft sounds aren't  soft. Sometimes their volume was low and other times they were loud. At times there was no consistency among the surround sounds. Other than that, the sounds was Ok. Even though this movie uses Dolby Atmos, most of the sound comes from the LCR speaker first, then the surrounds and lastly the overhead/Atmos speakers. The LFE (Low Frequency Effects) is used sparingly.
 
I realized that this type of Dolby Atmos mix is common among Disney's streaming and 4k UHD Bluray content, unfortunately.
