Hollow Man
 

 

Jerry Goldsmith's first score for the new millennium finally hits the streets. Its been a long wait but well worth it delivering the kind of score the summer 2000 season is in desperate need of. Full of the trade mark sonics that have come to define the Goldsmith - Verhoeven partnership, it delivers the requisite atmosphere for the director's dark sci-fi thriller. Electronics return to the fore but with a harsh and unrelenting orchestral undercurrent supporting the dramatic suspense while thematic material is kept to the minimum. As the score builds to the requisite explosive finale, orchestra takes over juxtaposed with some inspired screaming string effects to round out classic Goldsmith tension and excitement. No major action set pieces to talk of but the magic lies with the stop-start suspenseful moments highlighted by cool piano and brash horns. A score that you probably won't warm to immediately but there's no denying that Goldsmith consistently makes this powerful score very a great listen.

Expanded review to follow.
