10,000 BC is easily the most underrated film ever made, as it is both entertaining and visually phenomenal. But within Roland Emmerich's vision of "The First Hero," is a score that truly captures the vision and greatness of the epic. The music by Harold Kloser & Thomas Wander is stunning to say the least, sounding like a mix of Hans Zimmer's The Last Samurai, Harry Gregson-Williams' Kingdom of Heaven, Bear McCreary's Battlestar Galactica and David Arnold's Stargate. But to compare it to others' works is child's play, as the music here is completely captivating, heartfelt and grand in ever sense of the word. The track "Mountain of the Gods" is a truly massive piece, showcasing the scene when the main characters discover the civilization living in the desert, with giant pyramid structures being built. The track "Terror Birds" focuses more on the intense action-packed moments when the characters are truly in trouble, facing off ancient predators while people start getting killed off. But my all-time favorite is 10,000 BC End Credits; the perfect ending for a truly underrated movie, sounding heroic and hopeful as life continues on.
This is a must-own for anyone who listens to or collects movie soundtracks
