Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!
He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.
I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*OK, so a thought...<br><br>"Opening" and "SEAL Attack" are functionally identical; Hybrid says that Hans originally wrote it for the latter scene and it was then placed over the main titles of the film. However, the former is credited to Hans and NGS, the latter to Hans, HGW and Steven Stern. Presumably, since HGW/Stern aren't credited on "Opening", their contribution to "SEAL Attack" is limited to that first minute, which does indeed have a lot of HGW-ish percussion work to my ears. That leaves the rest of "SEAL Attack" as Hans' work alone, which begs the question: why the heck is NGS credited for "Opening", then, since it's basically identical? Screw it, I'm labeling that a solo Hans cue. Always bugged me that there wasn't at least one on this score. :pHi dear hans , i'm farzin a film composer from iran , i composed many films & tv series in my country also winning some awards and some of them are in IMDB , but music comunity is verry small here and i think i'm wasting my time & music here , its pleasure to be your assistant or working with you or anything you think i can be useful (sorry my english language is not good). please please just listen to one track of my music (i will send some for you if you reply me with email) and if it was qualified email me and let me know , also i have to travel to california this December cause my family lives there. i'm always thankful hans for your help & attention.

I'm "missing" three of the tracks for the complete score - CA Suite, WS Suite, and the alternate version of Time to Suit Up. <br><br>It looks like the CA and WS suites are pretty much the same ones on the official release as the lengths match up perfectly, but where can I find the alternate of Suit Up?Cheers mateI agree. Great score. This is "Hans Zimmer Dark Minimalism" done absolutely right. And the Oscorp stuff has to be temp. It goes up and down in just the right places.Forgot Macrotus, so the numbering messed up on 5-8 lol... Macrotus = Father to the Rescue + Hide in the Dark + Courthouse Pt. 1...

Well, I'm finally listening to this score, and while I think it's a lot of fun, there's really no excuse for the lack of instrument variety here. It's so frustrating because I know how amazing Steve's use of woodwinds are when he's given the chance to use them, but for whatever reason, he just refuses to include them in any more of his scores. It's like he thinks they can only be used in animation and fantasy. Which is not the case at all.

This movie would have been perfect to have some Silence of the Lambs/Howard Shore type of aesthetic with brooding woodwinds, along with the really intense string work he already has here. Maybe use a low clarinet for some of the statements of the main theme similarly to the way it was used for the History of the Ring leitmotif from LOTR. Something to vary it up! Maybe more harps instead of just piano sounding instruments for the emotional tracks' underscores?

While I definitely enjoy this score, it's pretty disappointing considering what it could have been. It even vaguely resembles some of Howard Shore and Christopher Young's more Gothic work, why couldn't Steve go all the way with that style?


Olive2018-04-29 03:32:11
Sometimes the end is not valid from an "Silence of the Lambs/Howard Shore" approach. ;)


superultramegaa2018-04-30 01:24:35
What do you mean? That you think a Howard Shore approach wouldn't work, or that it's invalid? Having a hard time wrapping my brain around that sentence.

Just heard the track "I Must Remember". OMG, what a cheap rip-off of The Dark Knights Harvey Dent music. I mean, really??? I like Jablonskys motivation of scoring melodical scores, but sometimes he's copying some stuff so abnormal cheap, just like in Transformers the cue from Zack Hemsey. Why oh why...???

So, just saw two clips for TMNT 2 and his new theme sounds so cool!! Hoping for a soon release of it


Joshua2016-05-20 02:57:17
I concur. Really can't wait to hear what Steve brings here.


Brent2016-05-20 07:01:37
I'm really excited for this! Bring it on, Steve!


Everan2016-05-21 06:31:12
Steve posted an image on fb, with the tracks getting ready for the album release so it should be soon. 10 tracks confirmed so far

The movie was as bad as the trailer suggested, and the score really was average. Really waiting for the big Jablonsky to return...


Brent2015-10-22 19:02:45
Here's hoping he can do something huge with TMNT 2, especially more in the style of the first Transformers. Though, I'm pretty excited. He's got a couple films coming out in the next year or so that have me intrigued. TMNT 2, Deepwater Horizon and possibly 13 Hours. Hybrid, do you know if he'll do Michael's new movie?


...2015-10-22 21:28:24
Yes I agree. Jab has potential. Lately he's just worked on some lame movies:/


David2015-10-22 23:46:39
@Brent, if he didn't do 13 Hours it would be the first time he hasn't collaborated with Bay since 2003 on Bad Boys II! Rabin may have composed, but he did additional music. He even did the 2003 Texas Chainsaw, produced by Bay's production company Platinum Dunes.

@..., a composer doesn't get to work on any movie they want. They are hired. So it's not like Jablonsky is picking and choosing his movies. Besides, he was an infant daughter now. I'm sure he'll take whatever work he can get!


...2015-10-23 00:32:14
@David

Yes of course I know that they get hired. I just hope he'll get a great movie next!


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-23 00:55:23
I don't think the quality of the movie has to reflect on the quality of the score. Look at King Arthur - totally eh movie, one of the most epic things Hans Zimmer has ever done. Or Cutthroat Island by John Debney. Or Godzilla by David Arnold. Or Jupiter Ascending by Giacchino. Or Paycheck by Powell. Hell, Jablonsky's four best scores for me are Steamboy, Transformers, Your Highness and D-War - NONE of which are good movies!

What matters more is that the movie provides a great canvas to paint on. 800-year-old Vin Diesel fighting witches in New York City? There's no excuse for that score not being fun.

I haven't actually heard it yet, mind - just saying on principle. :p


Hybrid Soldier2015-10-23 08:25:16
David you mean since Armageddon, actually... lol


Leo2015-10-24 03:47:39
Edmund, just a question... what you didn't like about Steamboy? Even if it's not as great as Otomo's early movie Akira, it's still loads of fun, whith gorgeous animation (and score). :c


Edmund Meinerts2015-10-24 09:36:30
Steamboy has an incredible score and awesome steampunk awesomeness in every frame, so that goes a long way. I just didn't find the characters all that interesting. Ray is kind of boring (and I don't like Anna Paquin's voice work...she bugged me in Castle in the Sky as well), and Scarlett is just irritating (and yes, I know she's supposed to be, but it doesn't help matters). Some of the visuals are really phenomenal, but the second half of the movie is just action sequence after action sequence after action sequence, and while that does a lot to make Jablonsky's score as fun as it is, watching it gets kind of wearing after a while.

It's not a bad movie (not like those other three), but not a particularly good one either I'd say. I'd put every single thing Hayao Miyazaki's ever done (even Ponyo) over it.


Ds2015-10-24 11:07:02
Edmund, if you consider Transformers as a bad movie, then I think you should absolutely stay away from The Last Witch Hunter. It makes TF look like a masterpiece in every possible way :-p


Brent2015-11-14 01:00:50
So, um, Lorne is doing 13 Hours. What the heck happened? Not a bad choice, just was expecting Jablonsky.


-,-2015-11-14 01:27:21
oh no! please not lorne balfe score 13 hours. one of the worst rc compser!

"At Your Service" is amazing fun. "I Curse You with Life" is almost similar to "Loki's Theme" from Thor2.

As usual with Steve I m looking forward to it, but seeing how uninspired this whole movie looks like, I fear they just asked Steve some generic music in order to "sound like a modern blockbuster". But I hope I m wrong!!! :-)

Yes! Hopefully it's good...
