I don't think so. If i had discovered it 10 years ago maybe it'd have a special place in my heart. But i discovered it a few months ago and there isn't anything really new in it. It's like a mix of Gladiator, Crimson Tide and a few others, but never as good as they are. Not unpleasing though :-)
(of course this is just my opinion, judging by the HZimmer.com rating, i guess other people are quite fond of it)
thanks for the info :)

In my opinion one of Zimmer's best action scores. Hope LLL or Intrada will release an expanded version one dat
Love the score myself.
I think it is. It's a very important transitional score for Zimmer, still written very much in that mid-90s MV style but also pushing a little bit in the direction of the pseudo-Holst/Stravinsky stylings of Gladiator. Has some great Russian flavor to it as well. Very solid score.
I've listened to holst/Stravinsky it's some weird stuff I think Zimmer's stuff makes more sense than the 2 I mentioned.
Oh MacArthur...you really are a goldmine of unintentional comedy. "Some weird stuff"...priceless :D
Heh it's what i'm known for. lol. :)
I meant Hey* pops :)
I agree with what Edmund said, it's an important transitional score. It is very interesting to listen as a Zimmer fan. But I don't think it is one of his best works overall, and for a lambda listener, it's maybe not really a must have.
I would say it's a must-have, myself. Sure, certain tracks are slightly obnoxious in their bombast (Devoe's Revenge, for example), but the unadulterated, masculine epicness of the score (particularly in "The Chase") and the interesting extension of the Crimson Tide sound make it worth having, especially for fans of the "90's action" Zimmer. To me, if you like Crimson Tide and The Rock, you'll like this one.
Devoe's Revenge is my favorite track!
lol....I'm sorry. It's definitely not bad at all, but it gets a little grating at points, imo.
It's funny Greenway uses parts of Zimmer's stuff in Devoe's Revenge
trent easton navarro
Why is that funny? That part i basically one of the themes of the score, so seems logical Greenaway used it
Yeah, and it's funny how Balfe uses Zimmer's stuff in Inception, and how Zanelli/Jackman/Orvarsson/Balfe/Gire/Sponsler/Glennie-Smith/ Badelt/Jablonsky/Djawadi/Neely/Morris/Hendrickson use Zimmer's stuff in the Pirates scores.
No, wait, actually, it's perfectly normal. What was the point of this again?
Decided to give this one a spin today. Still a wonderful score, truly one of Zimmer's best action scores.
I remember when I bought this one, I was still in high school. The day after I got it, the day at school seemed to last forever. I just wanted to go home and play it again and again. Here's hoping La La Land or Intrada will release an expanded version soon
Hi all! Anyone knows who wrote the chore song (Russian kind) in the beginning of the train seen.. when they took a camera shot on the steamer from a helcopter or somekind... I would really love to have that song. but I cant find a site even mentioning this song.. #### . anyone has ideas? ##### thx to all! :)
We said that the piano composition that the little girl performs is Frederic Chopin's Nocturne (=Nocturnal) Opus 55 No. 1 In F Minor. Also the other piano composition that the guy performs (because he has lost his spouse and daughter) is again Chopin's Nocturne No.20 In C Sharp Minor. These compositions ain't Hans Zimmer. Frederic Chopin is the composer. AND THEY AIN'T SONGS EITHER. THEY ARE NOCTURNES!!!!!! DO YOU COPY THAT?
