Veteran film composer Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, The Abyss) lent his considerable chops to director Stephen Sommers' live action rendering of popular '80s cartoon G.I. Joe, taking a cue from his work on campy action films like Delta Force, The Mummy, and Predator. Silvestri breaks little ground on G.I Joe, employing enough "orchestral bombast peppered with military marches" to give Michael Bay-puppet Hans Zimmer a run for his money, but if 70 minutes of dependable, by-the-book action music (imagine watching the opening titles for the A-Team for an hour-and-a-half) is the tonic that gets your blood pumping, then G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra will definitely put hair on (or back on) your chest.
Where's the sweet Boom Boom Pow remix?
Good, but not Silvestri's best.
This score is okay. It's definitely not Silvestri's best or most inspired work, but then again this movie wasn't Forrest Gump either. I do like a handful of the tracks and like some of the mix of electronic and orchestral elements here. A couple tracks reminded me of "Tense'" on Josh Kramer's "Beginnings" album which I quite enjoy, as well as some of Kerry Muzzey's tracks (another good composer).
What a great score!!!!!!
I was hesitant buying this soundtrack because I didn't know much about it. I wasn't sure if it had too much "techno" or if it was more orchestral. I'm usually a fan of the latter. Mr. Silvestri has done a fantastic job with this score, & I am very happy I decided to buy it. I have found that I can definitely hear a theme, albeit a short one. It can be heard in its entirety in track #4 "General Hawk". This album is great, with plenty of action pieces. I realize I'm rambling on so I'll leave with this: if you're a fan of great action movie scores, BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!
