Loud, magical score. Feb. 27 2013
By Jerry Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
After hearing so many Hans Zimmer-like scores for the past few years, it's nice to hear one that's classical and that, you know, actually sounds like an orchestra. Ottman never ceases to impress me, especially in the fantasy/sci-fi genres. The theme is unoriginal, but he makes it work. There's also a little David Arnold-like trumpet action in the first cue, which I loved.

another S***ty CDR from WaterTower! March 3 2013
By P. Kocanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, the score itself is pretty good (strong 4 stars) - quite dark in tone when compared to some lighter previous works by John Ottman in similar fantasy genre... but WHAT THE F---! F----ing WaterTower can't manufacture the real CDs for such a high profile movie?! 89754897938 them... not wasting my money on such a s***ty product that doesn't do the music justice.
Better wait a few decades for a Deluxe version from one of the labels that actually care about their customers and quality of the product they offer.

Excellent! March 5 2013

This is very good! Sometimes John Ottman can be hit or miss, but I thought this was a hit. Is it the best I have ever heard, no, but I am very happy I got this. This has a very epic feel to it. You won't be sorry you got this.

Fantastic Adventure Score From John Ottman March 21 2013
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Ottman teams up with director Bryan Singer once again and delivers an absolutely stunning adventure score for Jack The Giant Slayer. The score for this film is quite honestly the best part of the film. Ottman manages to rope you in right from the opening logos and never lets go. It has all the characteristics of a classic adventure score from romance to little character moments and even swashbuckling action. The score is loud and extremely fun, and Ottman has created one of his most memorable themes with it as well. While John edits and scores all of Bryan Singer's films, this one seemed probably the most challenging for him and his many creative roles. The end result is that it was clearly John Ottman who was responsible for keeping this behemoth afloat with his nuanced editing and propulsive score.

As I said earlier, the score hooks you in right from the opening logos. The theme calls out loud and strong, and it sends a joyous tingle down your spine. What follows is simple in structure, but done so well that it will leave a long lasting impression on you. I still hum the theme as it has yet to leave my head. The rest of the score has plenty for adventure lovers to dig their teeth into. While that central theme is meant for Jack and Isabelle, it's probably more so the theme of the movie instead. Sort of how another Jack (Sparrow) had his own theme, but that Pirates Of The Caribbean theme was the welcome mat of the film. For Jack The Giant Slayer the music carries the listener along with Jack and his quest to save Isabelle and rescue the kingdom. The action pieces are entertaining and tremendously enjoyable. Ottman gives the giants some tangible weight that really establishes their presence when they're in a scene. The score follows the film pretty closely, and it doesn't add more than what you see. Ottman pretty much scores exactly what you see on screen, and that's absolutely fine. What I really love is that he scores little action beats that adds to the playfulness of the film. He never "mickey mouses" the action, but here and there he'll score a fall or a thud and it always put a smile on my face. The score ends just how you imagine it would, but there is nothing wrong with a little familiarity as long as it's playing on traditional fairytale storytelling.

Jack The Giant Slayer is a terrific score, and it should not be missed. The film is a bloated adventure epic and the score matches all of it. John Ottman gives us a rousing theme, fun action, romanticism, grand orchestration and ties it up with a "happily ever after" ending. While the story may be familiar, the score is a fresh orchestral romp. Jack And The Giant Slayer is everything you'd want in an adventure score and you can always count on John Ottman to deliver the goods.

Everything i love in orchestral soundtracks. Full Orchestra, Choir. Great themes and dynamics. Love the Composer. Much better than i thought it would be. I have over 100 Orchestral soundtracks and this is certainly top 10!
