4.0 out of 5 stars ...everything a mythological film need..., 13 Feb 2010

First things first. Don't come here looking for Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face' or Kesha's 'Tik Tok', both of which appear in the film. Because this is the "original" motion picture picture soundtrack. And for this, director Chris Columbus has turned to Canadian composer Christophe Beck.

Beck first came to prominence when he scored three series of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", winning an Emmy in the process. Since then he's been beavering away on a wide variety of movies, from the sublime ("Under The Tuscan Sun") to the ridiculous ("Garfield: A Tale Of Two Kitties"). But, hey, when you're self employed, you've got to take the work that comes your way.

So, with an actual son of a God to play with, Beck has reached for the big box marked bombast and went all out to create an appropriate backdrop for the son of Poseidon to play out his adventures against. And he does a pretty good job too. Now I haven't actually seen the film, so if the likes of 'The Minotaur' and 'The Hydra' turn out to be romantic scenes, then I'll feel like a fool. But if they soundtrack yer actual Minotaur and Hydra, then it's safe to say that Mr Becks mission has been accomplished.

It does everything a mythological film needs, moving from high adventure to creepy undertones, with more than a few delusions of grandeur thrown in for good measure, with the aforementioned scenes the highlights of the score. It's also nice to see an actual score, cut adrift from the pop numbers I mentioned earlier. It certainly seems an appropriate and enjoyable score for a demigod to undertake a transcontinental odyssey to.
