Film is a passion to me, and I have grown to appreciate all the aspects of film. I saw my first film before I could walk, a little Disney film called Fantasia. I saw The Rock in 1996 the year it came out when I was 9. The first thing that I asked my father after I watched it was for the music from the movie, at the time I wasn't aware of terms such as Soundtrack or Score. This score is sitting in my computer and playing at an above than average volume level as I am writing this review. Hans Zimmer is my favorite composer, and I hope he will still be around when I am making movies as my profession. The Rock set the standard for action movie scores, and we can see mimics of this original score in films such as Face/Off and Pirates Of The Carribean. Many other action films have tried to capture the style of The Rock. All 3 composers have the same style and have come together to create one outstanding score. The score of The Last Samurai starring Tom Cruise will mark Zimmer's 100th film score, and here's to 100 more Hans baby. I really wish people would appreciate film scores more because imagine movies without scores, they would be horrible. The Rock is the defining action score of the 90's and we still see traces of it in action films. Please purchase this Soundtrack and embrace the power of this original piece of movie music.
