The soundtrack literally blew me away!
C. Pina
While Powell has composed for a few kid films like Shrek, he's best known for his work on action flicks like the Bourne series.

They find a way into pretty much every score he composes and are more prominent in his action scores.

This 14-track score by John Powell delivers. While Powell has composed for a few kid films like Shrek, he's best known for his work on action flicks like the Bourne series. So it's no surprise that he was brought on to score this suspenseful war film.

Like the Bourne soundtracks, this score is mostly high-tempo electronic and orchestral songs. The tracks are arranged in the same order that they are heard in the film, and are a real treat for anyone who enjoys synthesizer-meets-symphony scores.

Tracks like "Traffic Jam" fluctuate between atmospheric to a suspenseful orchestra that incorporates strings with some Middle Eastern flavor thrown in. I absolutely loved tracks that Powell throws some Egyptian-style tabla into, such as "Meeting Raid." And songs like "Miller Googles" absolutely projects the film directly into your head, I love that Powell really captures the essence of Green Zone.

This is a terrific soundtrack that I enjoy listening to from start to finish. I enjoyed watching the movie, but I love soundtracks like this just the same even if I hadn't seen Green Zone. Soundtrack aficionados should absolutely add this one to their collection.

Green Zone reunites John Powell with director Paul Greengrass on their fourth collaboration together. Before this Powell composed The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum and United 93 for Greengrass. Green Zone is an action thriller based off the United States' involvement in the Middle East. This is an action score and it's nothing more than that. To be honest I think John Powell could have composed this score in sleep, but that's not a negative comment.

Powell is known mainly known for his intense trademark percussions. They find a way into pretty much every score he composes and are more prominent in his action scores. Here they work especially well because they create a constant rhythm for the action and if you know Paul Greengrass you know you're going to get handheld cameras and fast paced editing. The same way that Harry Gregson-Williams is a perfect fit for Tony Scott is also why John Powell is a perfect fit for Paul Greengrass.

The one thing I'm glad to have found here is that Powell didn't go the full Hans Zimmer route which has been pretty standard in films dealing with modern warfare. Ever since Black Hawk Down every modern warfare score has been a rock infused ethnic wonderland. While I love that genre defining sound I found it refreshing that Powell kept things to his creative palette and worked with his own sound. Though there are a few ethnic strings thrown into the mix, which is excellent because it establishes setting and atmosphere.

One thing I've read in other reviews and heard from other people is that they don't like the score because there is no thematic material. While I'm a huge fan of using themes to make a score stand on its own I honestly feel that in this case it wasn't necessary.

I was not expecting GreenZone to be as good a movie as it turned out to be. The soundtrack literally blew me away! It's the perfect score for the film and captures every emotion and action packed moment accurately. If you like soundtracks that are fast paced and suspenseful def. try this one out! (Watch the film too of course!)

Green Zone is centered around Captain Roy Miller of the United States Army who, after coming up empty on WMD sites across Iraq, decides to dig deeper, uncovering a conspiracy involving the CIA and false intelligence. Paul Greengrass, who previously worked with Matt Damon on Bourne Supremacy and Ultimatum, returns to helm the project, offering a gritty and realistic view of the war in Iraq that can be compared to Black Hawk Down.

The musical score composed by John Powell, does resemble the Bourne films in that it is incredibly intense when need be, but calms down during moments that do not have gun-fights and chase sequences. With the first track, "Opening Book," it perfectly sets up the scene for the film by depicting General Al-Rawi leaving a safe house as Iraq comes under fire from the United States military. It's intense, has a fast-paced drums, violins and violas. In "1st WMD Raid," Powell orchestrates the sounds, drums and violas to set the scene and intensity. But here, the intensity builds on itself as the action increases. My favorite track on the CD, though, is "WTF," which marks the end of Millar's journey to uncovering what exactly is happening in Iraq, with the death of the most reliable source he had found. It's a tragic-sounding violin piece, as if everything leading up to this point was all for nothing.

Green Zone is by far John Powell's best score since United 93, and hopefully he and Paul Greengrass team-up again in the future, after Captain Phillips, which is being scored by Henry Jackman.

There are many movies with great music. The music from most of these movies was better listening on the soundtrack CD's. Logical, right? Not so much with Green Zone. I don't want to detract from John Powell's abilities as a composer, but his "How to Train Your Dragon" CD was better than this one. Still, the music was interesting and I will not abandon it to the unused corner.
