They all have a structure and format to create emotion and just a general sense of being in an action flick.

Since writing one of the best scores of his career for The Polar Express in 2004, Alan Silvestri's recent output has been unusually disappointing.
Jon Broxton
Mr. Silvestri does a great job with this soundtrack by capturing the mood of the movie in this collection of music from the movie.

This wasn't the greatest movie - it was basically glorified eye candy. However, this soundtrack really does make the action scenes pretty intense. I you like military-sounding action soundtracks, this is a pretty decent one.

Far be it from me to suggest people lower their standards but let's face it: the new crop of score composers are great while the old composers are... well, old.

Alan Silvestri has fallen to what I call Horner-itis. The symptoms include repetitive cues, lack of a coherent theme and constant re-hashing of old material (and not the good old material). Now, this doesn't mean he is in any way a bad composer, or that his music doesn't have appeal. It's true, there's not much originality to Silvestri's "G.I. Joe" score, but it's been playing nonstop in my CD player all week and probably will for weeks to come.

"G.I. Joe" is a surprisingly catchy, action packed score that is incredibly enjoyable. I love it. I can't stop listening to it. It has the right action beats, sufficient variation in its "themes" and its length doesn't leave much to be desired, it's really all there. And best of all, having just seen the film, it plays superbly with the action on screen.

I do wish that when the marketing department gets together to sell these things, they don't bring up Silvestri's work on "Back to the Future" or "Predator". He just doesn't write that kind of music anymore. I can't remember the last time Silvestri created a really memorable theme. But that doesn't mean his music isn't easy to listen to.

I would normally give this three stars, but the extra star is for the replay value of the album. Don't expect a work reminiscent of past greatness, but do expect an established and well credited composer to do his job and deliver music worth listening to. It's worth a purchase, and guarantees to entertain.

I have always loved Silvestri music and found this CD great. Not as great as Van Helsing, but still very powerful music to add to your collection.

Looking back at my childhood, I now realize that I was probably very unconventional in how I spent my time. I never read comic books. With the exception of the classic Kenner Star Wars ones, I never played with action figures very much. I was never really into guns and army toys and ninjas and whatnot. I played soccer and tennis, watched a lot of movies and sports on TV, read a lot, and wrote a lot. All this probably goes to explain why, when I first heard that they were making a big budget G.I Joe movie (and unlike several of my friends, who were positively giddy with excitement), my response was a disinterested shrug.

Having had to do some research prior to writing this review, I now know that G.I. Joe is a very popular military-themed line of action figures created by Hasbro in the 1960s, which has since spawned comic books, various animated TV shows and video games, and now a feature film entitled G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, directed by Stephen Sommers. The film stars Channing Tatum as Duke Hauser, the leader of an ultra-elite international fighting force created to stop the evil Cobra Organization, who have nefarious plans for world domination. The film also stars Dennis Quaid, Rachel Nichols, Ray Park, Marlon Wayans and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as the members of the G.I. Joe team, as well as Christopher Eccleston, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Sienna Miller as the operatives of Cobra. For the score, Sommers turned to his long-time collaborator Alan Silvestri, with whom he had previously worked on The Mummy Returns and Van Helsing.

Since writing one of the best scores of his career for The Polar Express in 2004, Alan Silvestri's recent output has been unusually disappointing.

There were moments that reminded me of Silvestri's work from the '80s and '90s (most notably, "Predator"), and it was nice. Great action cues and character moments. I usually don't like the packaging for Varese Sarabande albums, but they did a good job on this one.

Silvestri at his best
That's a shame that there's no hint of the original cartoon theme in the music. But I can understand why there wouldn't be. I'm just kind of holding out hope that at least at the end of the credits or somewhere in there we get the old cartoon riff. Oh well. If it's not there then I'll just listen... Read More
