Actor/director Bill Paxton's weepy golf drama concerning the underdog-led 1913 U.S. Open is treated with ample sentimentality and sepia-tone goodness by composer Brian Tyler (Bubba Ho-Tep, Darkness Falls, Constantine). With echoes of similarly themed sports dramas like The Natural, Miracle, and Field of Dreams, Tyler's score is rousing, lush, and romantic to a fault, with a sweeping main theme that conjures up images of trophies being thrust into the air with credits rolling over them. Tyler, to his credit, doesn't fully succumb to the "soaring strings" complex, as his tendency to insert liberal amounts of piano and acoustic guitar give the soundtrack a much needed identity. Opera star Dawn Upshaw and an almost sneering Joe Jackson — he also appears briefly in the film — perform a couple of standards, "The Band Played On" and "Hello Hello Who's You're Lady Friend," respectively, while Jackson contributes his own "Angel" for Upshaw to sing.
A wonderful departure for Brian Tyler
This album has such a great Americana-type vibe to it... along the lines of "The Natural" or Lee Holdridge's score for "Pastime." I haven't seen the movie, but the music exists beautifully as a standalone product and makes for excellent listening. I'd love to see Brian Tyler do more scores like this. He's up there with Patrick Doyle, Kerry Muzzey and Alexandre Desplat in the list of "composers I would love to see doing more movies." Check out my iMixes for a great collection of contemporary film scores!
this was a great soundtrack! I fall asleep to this and it matched the movie! the movie was great!
A really great movie !!!!
The only thing better than the the movie was the music. A simply fantastic movie, beautiful music and great acting. Bill Paxton did a award winning job of directing. A really feel good movie!!!
