This ambitious, action-plagued sci-fi thriller/Bruce Willis star vehicle marks the return of composer Richard Marvin to feature-film scoring (his best known previous Hollywood big screen effort was U-571) after a busy decade in television. The pulsing electronica of Marvin’s "Pix Title Sequence" immediately evokes the ghost of Tangerine Dream, a sensibility that essentially becomes the score’s driving, rhythmic heart. Yet the composer is quick to suffuse that synth-hypnotic aura with orchestral flourishes, eerie percussion effects and spare, haunting piano arpeggios. That edgy sonic melange reaches rhythmically relentless, almost over-the–top crescendos on the soundtrack’s sprawling, action-driven sequences, "Warrant Received/Foot Chase" and "T-Bone/Stone Zapped," before Marvin closes the score out on a quieter, more contemplative note.
One of the better film scores
In a few words - this is a film score that stands on it's own. It's remarkably well recorded, the tracks are compelling and original.
My reason for buying this soundtrack was for the music in the club scene early in the film, yet it is not on the soundtrack nor can I learn where to obtain it or who produced it.
I can see how it would be out of cadance with this album though. The driving tempo is most likely why it is omitted. Otherwise this is a decent album. The haunting melodies always remind me of the creep factor of this film. I like movies that make me think. Like Eden Log, days afterward I find myself still pondering the implications of this movie.
