Album Review

Director Paul W.S Anderson (Resident Evil, Death Race) was wise to snag composer Paul Haslinger for his explosive, popcorn-hurling take on Alexandre Dumas' Three Musketeers, as the ex-Tangerine Dream member seems more than up to the task of keeping up with his partner in crime's kinetic pace. Similar in style to Hanz Zimmer's playful and boisterous work on Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes reboot, Haslinger trades the regality and pomp of the past, in this case, 17th century France, for the propulsive cacophony of a Michael Bay film, blending explosive, electro-percussion and classical action cues with comical harpsichord runs, resulting in a listening experience that works wonderfully when taken in short bursts, and with more than a few grains of salt.

Customer Reviews

Completely unoriginal

While I was watching the film in theaters, I thought it used existing scores from a range of films, only to discover that they were specifically composed for this film.

Pretty much all the pieces are Hans Zimmer wannabes. A particular song sounds almost identical to Sherlock Holmes' Discombobulate.

All in all, a completely dull score severely lacking originality.

What?

I completely agree with 'Dr Noob' who made a review before me. This soundtrack sounds very much like Hans Zimmers' work, on songs such as 'To France of course' it sounds like a different mix up of the classic 'He's a pirate' theme.

It's a shame because this composer has a good ear for instruments and style but it seems all too similar to Mr Zimmers' work. I don't think you can seemingly re-arrange someones work and call it your own...

Great album

Great album for what looks to be a great film. Saying this album is bad, is more stupid than turning up to the Grand National, on a cow!
