TERRIBLE audio mixing
25 January 2017 | by andrew-marks59See all my reviews

From what I actually did pick up on from the movie, the story was pretty interesting and Riz Ahmed did a pretty good job. It was incredibly hard to understand what everybody in the movie were saying, the background noise was too loud, the music was too loud, and the heavy accents at low volumes are hard to understand if you're not familiar with how they speak in England. I don't think they need to change their voices or anything, it's how they speak and I totally respect that, it was just hard to understand for me and most of the audience at my screening.

My suggestion: watch it with subtitles when it releases on Blu-Ray and DVD.

Seen at TIFF 2016.
