A good score, from a bonehead movie. Not even Caroline Goodall, Michael Rooker, and John Lithgow could save it, and that's saying something!

Nevertheless, this is great news.

Now...let's have good and proper releases of ANGEL HEART, EXCALIBUR, MISSISSIPPI BURNING, TIME BANDITS, and THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH, if you don't mind.

Perhaps not, but thankfully Craig Fairbrass did.

I couldn't care less about things like that in silly action movies, and they certainly don't lose points for not ticking that box.

 

Agreed. It's great when an action movie does same some substance to it. Like Die Hard or Terminator 2. But it's not something I expect.

I might be a little late but this is definitely a very fine edition of an outstanding action score, certainly one of Jones's finest achievements. LLL's edition is a good upgrade of Intrada's back from 2011, especially concerning the re-mixing job; the score sounds as excellent and clear as it ever will. Warmly recommended, even to owners of the 2011 edition. I particulary enjoy the first half of the score (tracks 1-15), most of all the entire plane hijacking sequence.

It's a significantly better presentation of Jones' score than the Intrada version was, for sure.

 

I for whatever reason seem to have grown a bit cold to the score itself over the years though; The OST was a staple of my 90s listening, but when I revisited it after this release came out I struggled to get through the whole thing.  Maybe I should give it another chance today!
