Default Hachi: A Dog's Tale BD: AQ

To anyone who owns or has rented "Hachi: A Dog's Tale" BD, please tell me about the audio quality of the film. I am particularly interested in how the music sounds in terms of quality.

Thanks

Haven't seen the BD myself but here is Blu-ray.com's review of the audio hopefully it helps.

Hachi: A Dog's Tale barks out a decent DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. While not a minimalist listen, the various effects heard throughout are more supportive in nature than aggressive, but the track's reserved posture reinforces the quality, style, and themes of the movie nicely. Sound effects aren't consistently immersive, with the front channels handling the bulk of the material, but the back speakers do find themselves engaged on occasion. Gusty winds seem to blow through the soundstage with a good deal of precision and realism in chapter four, accompanied by a boom of thunder that adds a bit of spice and heft to an otherwise limited track. An outdoor scene in chapter six makes for what is perhaps the track's most impressive element as the pleasant and relaxing sounds of singing birds seem to emanate all around the soundstage, making for a most convincing environmental effect. The track's light, piano-heavy, and somewhat repetitive score enjoys a good deal of clarity, and dialogue reproduction is solid and crisp from beginning to end. Overall, Hachi features a solid but hardly invigorating lossless soundtrack; it gets the job done and perfectly suits a movie that's about emotion and not explosions and excess bass.

I loved the movie one of the best I have seen but still haven't found it yet at stores either.

The reviews here make the A/V seem average. Is it worth a purchase on BD or just a rental?

Fantastic movie, and its based on a true story. The audio is almost all front speakers although the dialogue is very clear and crisp. Some surround but very minimal. The audio suits the movie very well for an emotional adventure. A must buy if the price is right.

For me I loved the movie and could watch it more then once and I thought the AQ/VQ was good but also not the best. If you are going to watch it once I say rent it but if you are going to see it more then once or find it cheap I would recommend buying it.

This is a great film. I saw it a few months ago. The audio track is ok from what I can remember. It's not meant to rock your subwoofer. It's a family film and great for dog lovers. I would rent it first.
