4.0 out of 5 stars Bruce Lee would be proud Nov. 29 2002
Format:Audio CD
Randy Edelman does it again with this Bruce Lee movie. An all around great score with trademark Edelman sounds, his usual combination of orchestra and synths, with an eastern feel to it. There are 2 themes that occur in the score, along with other thematic material. The first is the main theme heard in "Dragon Theme/A Father's Nightmare", "The Premiere of the Big Boss", and "The Dragon's Heartbeat". It is a 5 note orchestral theme played with confidence and assurance. The other theme or the love theme and the far better one is heard in "Bruce and Linda", "Victory at Ed Parker's", "The Premiere of the Big Boss", and the best track "The Dragon's Heartbeat". This theme has been used in many TV ads for sporting events and figure skaters have skated to it successfully. Other thematic material occurs throughout such as in "Yip Man's Kwoon", "Sailing on the South China Sea", and "Brandon" (the only track that contains my name that i'm aware of), among others. The end of "Yip Man's Kwoon" and "Chopsaki" are 2 of those martial arts cues with sixteenth note xylophone rhythms and percussion. Overall, a great score that would make Bruce Lee proud and Edelman fans as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Score for an American Hero Jan. 3 2001
Format:Audio CD
It wouldn't be an overstatement to say that Randy Edelman's grand music for Dragon saved this film from becoming just another hokey TV bio-pic movie of the week. The approach the director had in mind with this score was to rise above stereotypes by not giving the characters of Bruce and Linda Lee an obviously oriental-sounding theme; the sweeping theme is about an American hero who rises from humble beginnings to become a world-class legend. The music has therefore been recycled numerous time in movie trailers throughout the 90s since it's not limited to this setting. Is it worth buying the album to hear this one theme? In short, yes. The Legend theme is introduced as a tender solo piano melody in "Bruce and Linda" and is recast in full symphonic/synthesizer treatment in "The Premier of The Big Boss" and "The Dragon's Heartbeat," but there is more to make this one worth owing. "The Challenge Fight Warm-up" is used in the Japanese "Ironchef" TV program which has attained cult status in the U.S. "Sailing on the South China Seas" uses a motif of the main theme in a sythesizer orchetral treatment. "The Tao of Jeet Kune Do" introduces a new and subtle solo piano theme which passes along to the main theme. "First Date" is a jazzy nightclub piano number which shimmers with sythesized bell-like effects. Unfortunately the last track,"The Hong Kong Cha-Cha" is annoying even as it turns Hollywood's traditionally stereotypical treatment of all things Chinese on its head.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes redundant but overall it's worth it... Aug. 2 2001
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is hands down one of my favorites of all time. The theme that is echoed beginning in the track "Bruce and Linda" that reoccurs throughout the soundtrack until it's finale in "The Dragon's Heartbeat" was one of the most of used themes for a couple years after its release. The theme could be heard after the superbowl, and during previews of other movies such as The Truman Show. Edelman has a knack for using such memorable and captivating themes in several different ways. Although this can seem somewhat redundant at times, the theme is so captivating that the listener wants to hear it that much more. Edelman did the same with The Last Of the Mohicans. I definitely think this cd is worth the listen. I've owned it for two years now and still enjoy listening to it often.

3.0 out of 5 stars A soundtrack that you know better than you think Sept. 11 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The movie Dragon has an oriental touch (Logical since its about Bruce Lee). So expect oriental music, mixed with orchestral touches. Randy Edelman did a good job and the main theme is especially powerful. So catching that its used in trailers for many other filmtitles, like Forrest Gump. The downside is that its to repetive. Most of the themes are repeated in the every song. Although I really like track number 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music to the film Aug. 18 2000
Format:Audio CD
By now most of you have heard the music from Dragon on various TV commercials. Even though it's been used too much, that's still no reason to not pick this CD up. Randy Edelman has created a score that suits the movie perfectly. Perhaps his best work to date (much better than his compositions for The Last of the Mohicans where he was outshined by Trevor Jones). If you loved the film, buy the soundtrack!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great soundtrack... March 26 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You have heard this music in ads for so many other movies--Forrest Gump, The Truman Show, etc. And they use it in many sports features, such as the 1996 Olympics and World Figure Skating Championships. It's powerful stuff, and worth buying.
(And for all of you figure skating buffs, it's the music from Elvis Stojko's 1994 Olympic Long Program.)
