Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!
Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lol

Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me too
Excited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.

What is the piano piece when Gerard is cutting out pictures and making a little photo album towards the end? Driving me crazy as it sounds like the score to Pearl Harbor (similar).
Thanks

Is there anywhere I can download the sheet music for 'Pour Bronte'?

"This score is as much Peter Weir's creation as it is mine & I think him for all his ideas & support" - Hans Zimmer.

If only his ghostwriters got such open credit!

They do. And, back then, there was no one else.

What about the wonderful piano piece he plays, singing in French? who is the composer?


Frances2012-02-19 19:40:22
The track he plays on the piano is 'asking you' on the soundtrack but naturally the words are not included on the soundtrack, musically it was composed by hans but the words were composed by peter weir.

There's pretty good music when they running through the central park. Who composed that? Can't find it anywhere!


zimm442011-05-08 19:47:10
It's ENYA :)

When they are running through central park on the way to the meeting it is not rain in africa but storms in africa by Enya.

I think the commenter from 8/2/06 was referring to "For Bronte" which actually is on the soundtrack, but as with most soundtracks, when you hear the music "pure"-with nothing distracting you such as action or foley sounds, it sounds almost unrecognizable. Very often only samplings of a song make it into the movie. I was most disappointed that some agreement wasn't made to allow the Enya tracks to be at covered (at least) on the CD-it spoiled the experience for me. Overall the music is great.

I surrender to this sountrack for a very time ago, thanks Mr. Zimmer for this great work.

I found some interesting music references in this movie (like The Holiday).
Gerard Depardieu's character is a composer, so in a scene he plays '9am Central Park' on piano... and he often hums Zimmer's theme, eventually he sent his(Zimmer's?) messy handwriting score of that theme to a girl... :D

By the way, it seems my favorite track 'Greenhouse' wasn't used in the movie :(

Laurel,
I think the track you're talking about is "Watermark" from Enya's album ("Watermark", 1988, WEA records).

I hope it will help you. ;)

The best song isn't on the Green Card CD -- that is, the contemplative love theme that begins to appear toward the end of the movie is missing from the CD. This was a great disappointment to me, since I had bought the CD just to hear this musical moment. **** I'm heartbroken.
