Unstoppable Soundtrack [2010]

Harry Gregson-Williams has established a bit of a pattern when it comes to scoring the films of Tony Scott. Unfortunately for fans of the composer, this pattern has not yielded his finer works. In Unstoppable, there is a bit more hope to latch onto as this is one of Harry's stronger efforts for Tony, primarily due to a stronger focus on the thematic components. More specifically, there is a subtle but heartfelt motif that can be heard at differing junctures in Unstoppable, first heard in the second track entitled, Frank Barnes. The use of this melody, along with accessible segments of orchestral offerings, makes this a hybrid score that is easy on the ears and marks an improvement on Harry's modern/action movie ventures (e.g., Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3). Also, it's great to see La La Land Records becoming involved with releasing soundtracks for new, higher profile movies in addition to their excellent pool of specialty soundtracks.
