Product Details

Product Description

Original soundtrack to the 2014 motion picture with music composed by Patrick Doyle (Thor, Brave, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes). In the hotly anticipated Shadow Recruit directed by Academy Award winner Kenneth Branagh, Jack Ryan is a young covert CIA analyst (played by Star Trek's Chris Pine) who uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack. Patrick Doyle (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, Harry Potter & The Goblet Of Fire) has composed for every film directed by Kenneth Branagh (Dead Again, Henry V, Thor), and here he returns with an intense and action-packed score.

Doyle does espionage Feb. 8 2014
By Danny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have a few Patrick Doyle soundtracks and only one has ever really stuck out to me, "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein". Usually, I find his soundtracks to be sufficient in what they do but not necessarily some of my favorites. I had my reservations when I saw that he was doing the Jack Ryan soundtrack but upon listening to it, I think he has done an outstanding job with this one. It seems that a lot of films dealing with this subject matter (espionage/CIA/spies) tend to lean toward a soundtrack of thumping techno cues that end up giving me a headache. Doyle seems to be the only one that can take the subject matter from a movie like this and actually give it "moments". There are true moments of action, tension, sadness, and despair. I haven't seen the movie, but I can see it from the perspective of the music and when music can do that...then you know it is good. There is plenty of hard hitting action music that brings a lot of excitement to the score but Doyle isn't afraid to turn the drum machines off and let the music slowly fall and rise to a heroic swell when needed. My favorite track is "Faith of our Fathers". It kinda reminds me of something from "The Hunt for Red October". It is a great piece with a powerful chorus and when the choir cranks it up it will give you goose bumps. The music is plenty thematic and becomes auditory symbolism for the heroic Jack Ryan. Put on the headphone, close your eyes, and you can create your own spy adventure with this one. This is remarkable score for Patrick Doyle and I know his fans will love it. He certainly has impressed me.

Solid orchestral soundtrack... Wish the movie were this good! Jan. 29 2014
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Last week I saw "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" at the movies, and upon leaving the theater I made a mental note to myself to check out the movie soundtrack, as the orchestral score plays prominently in the movie.

"Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit - Music From the Motion Picture" (24 tracks; 73 min.) brings the movie score rom the Scottish film composer Patrick Doyle. Doyle is a veteran of movie soundtracks, including Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Brave and Thor, just to name those. It's difficult to pinpoint to specific highlights on this soundtrack, as the tracks come and go pretty quickly and this truly plays like an album. I mean, you're not going to play, say, "Shadow Accounts" by itself and then go to a different album altogether! But of course there are several pieces that caught my particular attention, including the afore-mentioned "Shadow Accounts", but also later on "The Engagement" (as brief as it is). Check out as well the 8 min. "Stealing The Data", perhaps the pivotal moment in the movie. As is so often the case with these soundtracks, you can almost make out the entire script from just looking at the titles of these tracks. I suppose it's unavoidable, but still annoying for those that haven't seen the film. That quibble aside, if you like movie soundtracks, this one is definitely worth checking out.

As to the movie itself, while it is certainly not a bad movie per se, and the time flew by pretty quickly, I was nevertheless let down as something is not quite right with this Jack Ryan reboot. For one, Chris Pine seems mismatched/overmatched for this role. For another, the action scenes don't always deliver. For example, the crucial break-in sequence (where Ryan penetrates the office of the bad guy) goes off way too easily. If you like Jack Ryan, I suggest you check the movie out for yourself, be it in the theater or on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusions about this reboot.
