3.0 out of 5 stars An Average Score That Is Effective But Will Never Engage You Feb. 20 2014
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Christophe Beck is a very versatile composer and his ability to adapt to any genre is definitely an amazing talent of his. From The Hangover and The Muppets to Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief and We Are Marshall, he can mold to the story. Runner Runner is definitely a story that is well suited for his abilities and the score itself is not a disappointment. Beck pushes his electronic soundscape with intricate textures to build a worthy action thriller.

Now, a movie like Runner Runner is your typical convoluted thriller that tries to be edgy and just falls flat. That’s not to say that Christophe Beck’s music did the same. Beck finds some nice ways to make the music constantly engaging. It lacks any real graspable thematic material, but there are some motifs at work. The electronic soundscape infused with strings is effective in its approach. And the tracks that push the intensity do so adequately. Percussion is used extensively to really ramp up the intensity, and again it does work. Nothing about this score is bad, but nothing about it great either. With short tracks and a running time that barely gets over 40-minutes, there isn’t really enough score here to structure something memorable. It almost feels like Beck wasn’t used to his full potential as the filmmakers just threw a little gas on the fire when they needed extra heat, and that gas was Christophe Beck.

Runner Runner is an average score that is effective in what it’s trying to do. It never will wow you or fully immerse you, but it will engage you and give you an entertaining listen. The whole soundscape sound like a weak Harry Gregson-Williams score, but in the end I found it to be an engaging enough of a listen.
