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. :p

Email : farzingharahgozloo@yahoo.comThat's the 'Album Version' of Time To Suit UpI'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 mate
I 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... Also, Myotis actually = Initiation into the League + Temple Fight. <br><br>If you have the End Credits too, that's a Batman Arrives/Backup mashup + Training + Father to the Rescue + Bruce Left for Dead + Batman Theme.<br>Gotcha covered. <br><br>1. Vespertilio = Batman Titles + The Long Walk<br>2. Eptesicus = Bruce Goes Home + Training <br>3. Myotis = Temple Fight<br>4. Barbastella = Mugging Pt. 2 + Bat Cave <br>6. Artibeus = Dockyard Ambush Pt. 1 + Meeting Ducard<br>7. Tadarida = Rachel in the Bat Cave + Fight in Crane's Lab Pt. 1 + Batman on Fire + Microwave Stolen<br>8. Antrozus = Facing the League + Gordon at Home <br>9. Nycteris = Prototypes + Why Bats? + Finders Keepers Pt. 1<br>10. Molossus = Batmobile Chase<br>11. Corynorhinus = Surveying the Ruins + Gordon Says Thanks <br>12. Lasiurus = Ra's al Ghul theme suite<br>Any chance you could do a what makes up the tracks for the BB album Hybrid?Just want to give this score (and film) some major props. It seems like Ron Howard is one of those great directors who brings the best out of the composers he works with. It’s also interesting hearing just how much Lorne Balfe’s voice really comes through here.<br><br>Also, I wonder if it’s a coincidence just how much the OSCORP tune from TASM2 sounds like “Watergate Montage” (or did Marc Webb like a temp lol)

The documentary was really great !

It can be watched online for 7 days here :

h t t p ://videos.arte.tv/fr/videos/hans_zimmer-3759850.html

I don't know if there are any country restriction, and it's dubbed in French or German (most of it was spoken in English).

But it was really interesting, about HZ's past ! And it did not forget RCP, like most of the featurettes about HZ... There was Martin Tillman, Lorne Balfe, Ramin Djawadi... :)

Ele reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-15 00:00:00
As for Tillman, why he's not present in latest RCP scores? Zimmer & Co started to use Tina instead of him or what?

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-15 00:00:00
Maybe he's on other projects which has nothing to do with RCP?

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
just watched the Zimmer doc! Awesome! A lot of Lorne quotes. He's such an honest guy:
On his first day at RCP Hans asked Lorne if he's aware of the computer programm which is usually used to compose the score. Lorne was like "No...*pause* I'm joking of course I am!" dispite he wasn't aware! :) so he stidied the instruction book all night...

self edited "expanded" scores?? that isn't worth to check out! Dark Knight 3 CD Complete or an equal edition of Inception...that would be worth dying for!!

@Tim & 4tseven,

That is the so-called 'expanded' score. I found it on the blog thescoreplace. The guy makes his own custom covers. I posted a link for the over a month or two ago. I think it's a fake.

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-08 00:00:00

or is Michael Wandmacher really hans zimmer? :p nah, not likely...

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-03 00:00:00
Wow. Unless there's something I don't know about - Michael Wandmacher straight up plagiarized Hans Zimmer.

@Anya,

Is the Drive Angry Soundtrack out yet? I know it's been released digitally, but I want to download it (not through iTunes....I will get it eventually). I'll have to listen to the sample of it in iTunes.

Anya reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-02 00:00:00
As said Dakota below, the track "Mass VS Acceleration" in "Drive Angry" sounds just like Mombasa, it's pretty perplexing and plagiarism to me.
Too bad Inception didn't get the Oscar, this OST fits so perfectly the movie ! (but I couldn't chose between this and HTTYD)

Tim reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
ja, i see! :) well, I think all the suite kinda stuff (Time, Waiting for a Train, Old Souls and so forth) is composed by Hans while Lorne did all the tracks for the scenes in particular (Radical Notion, 528491).

Fisher reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
my money is on radical notion having lorne be a part of it.

you can hear it quite well in Dream is Collapsing (Hans) VS end of Projections (Lorne arrangement of the same theme). :)
