Just bought this score. I saw the movie I thought that the music was pretty good in it.
Yeah, it's not bad. Some Gladiator type action and a lot of Russian-styled music.
I heard the score within the movie and thought it was kinda….ugly. Maybe I'll have to listen to it on its own. :)
Ugly? I'd say the biggest problem with it is that a lot of it is quite dour and depressing. It's very weighty and Eastern European-sounding (not unlike The Peacemaker in parts). But "ugly" is not a word I'd use to describe it!
As I said, I'll probably have to give it another listen. It was a year or so ago, and my tastes were somewhat different then.
I think it's a very beautiful score now that I just finished listening to it.
Large and slow orchestra passages, an action music track that clearly sends us to Zimmer's 'The battle' / 'The Barbarian Horde' or a.k.a 'The Gladiator Waltz' from Gladiator and some beautiful solo soprano and choir work make up for this outstanding work by Badelt. Definetely one of his best works so far, the others being the TIME MACHINE, INVINCIBLE (with Zimmer) and NED KELLY.
