Fantastic Movie Score
J. Nielsen | Corona, CA United States | 07/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The movie was an okay movie. The soundtrack was pretty stupid. The movie score, however, is really good. When I watched the movie, I remember thinking the music was the best thing about it. I bought the soundtrack by mistake, and quickly got rid of it and bought this CD instead. I don't own the movie, but I own this - it is very well done, with a great deal of drums and guitars, making it a very unusual soundtrack.
Beware of the review by Shawn Watson - just because he's a "Top 500" reviewer doesn't mean he knows what he's talking about. He doesn't - I don't know what CD he heard, but it wasn't this one because this is just what the movie had for its score and it's great."
Not the best or the worst

"If you're looking for the techno type music that was in the film, get the soundtrack, not the score. The score is much more of a rock type score and while similar to the techno music, is not it. George S. Clinton, not the guy from P-Funk, did the score and it is pretty much what you would expect coming from a fantasy martial arts film such as this. Here is a rundown of some of the instruments: you have the guitar performed by Buckethead (and you thought you were made fun of as a kid), drums performed by Brain (probably not a smart guy, but you never know), lots and lots of percussion, shakuhachi (a Japanese wood flute), resonator, keyboards, and the Testosterone Orchestra (don't let the name of the orchestra fool you). The score sounds great in the film and accompanies the scenes nicely, but on CD can be a little noisy and tiring at times. The music is loaded with synths, electric guitars, drums, and lots of various percussion. There are themes for some of the different characters in the film. Goro's theme is a 3 note electric guitar motif that can be found in "Goro VS. Art" and "Goro Goro". Shang Tsung's theme is a dark and ominous synth theme found in "It Has Begun", "Liu's Dream", "Hand and Shadow", and "Soul Snatchin" to name a few. Johnny Cage's theme can be found in "Johnny Cage" (take a guess why) and "Johnny VS. Scorpion". Kitana's theme is an ethnic theme on the shakuhachi which is found in "The Garden", "Liu VS. Kitana",
and others. The rest of the music is mostly composed of the instruments listed above and does not really go anywhere musically, except loud and boisterous to accompany the film. This score is decent in parts and plain obnoxious in others. I suggest getting the soundtrack instead, as the music is better and the best parts of Clinton's score are found on it as well."
