Format: Audio CD
Ry Cooder definitely hits the mark with his unorthodox score to Last Man Standing. The opening music is distant and sad, matching the alienating and oppressive feel of the movie. It's an amazing sound and really makes us feel the isolation of Bruce Willis' character. This score almost becomes tragic in places. Track 13 is a classic and 20 and 24 create a VERY downbeat tone indeed. It's far from conventional, but that's what we expect from Cooder. There really is no other Hollywood film with a score as bizarre as this.

Thematically poor it may well be but this is a great CD that you have to get. For fans of the movie I suggest also hunting down Last Man Standing: Music Inspired By The Film. Elmer Bernstein was hired originally to do the score and although his music was impressive it just didn't fit the tone of the movie so Walter Hill had him fired. Both CDs are worth owning despite being at opposite ends of the spectrum.

If you've reached this space, you've obiously seen the movie. If you haven't, go see it right away! A bit matcho it is, yes, but Bruce Willis does a great job at playing tough, and my the actors in this movie are all great. So heck, go see it!
Ok, I am going to talk to those of you who have seen the movie. Did you like the background music in the movie, and thought to yourself: "Wow, that music is wonderful, I have to have it."
Well think no more about it then. The creators of this soundtrack CD has obviously done their homework. Almost ever background tune you heard in the movie, IS ON THIS CD. That means a lot of quality guitar mood music, taken of course from Last man Standing. Great music for romantic occasions, relaxing, and daydreaming.
Some would-be soundtracks get neglected, and released just for that extra buck. But if all soundtracks / scores were this great, I would have no trouble hitting the "buy" button of the movies were I thought the background music ruled!

Thematically poor it may well be but this is a great CD. The opening music is the most distant and morbid I have ever heard. It's great. Track 13 is a classic and 20 and 24 create a VERY downbeat tone. This is an unmissable CD.
