Good for intros, bad for main themes.
on 6 October 2011
I love the film and I do like the soundtrack. All the main themes are here, especially loving the stirring battle music and the up lifting final track.
My main beef with this 'OST' soundtrack, like Iron Man and Kick Ass - they spend about 2 and a half minutes on the intro to the themes and then only about 30 seconds on the actual music itself. You are left wondering how they managed to cover the first 6 minutes of credits at the end of the film with a theme that only lasts 3.32 minutes on the disc. Surely it should last as long as the one we heard in the film???!!!
When will these 'OST's' stop cutting down the actual climatic music that people remember from these films in favour of an overly long (and unfulfilled) promise of what should be coming up?
Buy this soundtrack by all means, but be prepared to only hear about 4 minutes of music that you might actually recognise
