Album Review

Composer John Ottman helmed the baton for the X-Men franchise after the death of original maestro Michael Kamen and John Powell (United 93, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) took the reigns for the third installment, so it comes as no surprise that the myriad of themes introduced can be a bit much. Ottman gave the series some heft on X-Men 2 with his use of choirs and more than a little Mozart, a style adopted by Powell for X-Men: The Last Stand.

X-Men: The Last Stand is first and foremost the soundtrack to a bombastic summer blockbuster, and detractors of the genre will find little to sway them here, but it's a well-done piece of excess that deserves more than a smattering of applause.
