5.0 out of 5 stars Frightening; Action-Packed; Excellent! July 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Edward Shearmur did an excellent job at composing "Reign of Fire." He fuses strings, synths and heavy brass with a treat of choir here and there to create the final product of an amazingly action-packed score. It's complete with a mournful theme and a frightening composition of brass and choir to magnify the dragons and their destructive power. Here are my song ratings:
1) Prologue - 4.5/5 the first half starts out eerie and mysterious and the second half is the low brass theme of the dragons; good track
2) Enter The Dragon - 6/5 by far one of the best tracks of the album with frightening choir and brass creating one of the most intense tracks I've ever heard
3) An Early Harvest - 5/5 one of the best tracks ending with a creepy choir build up leading directly into the next track
4) Field Attack - 5/5 starts out very intense and leads into an action-packed track
5) Marauders - 5/5 I can see this track appearing in a trailer for a war movie in the future; a great military-style theme
6) Meet Van Zan - 5/5 the main theme (or theme of Van Zan) incorporated into another military-style track
7) Archangels - 5/5 starts out with an awesome techno style drum section and then gets into the action; intense track!
8) Dawn Burial - 5/5 this is one of the warmest tracks on the soundtrack with the gorgeous theme and music for the tension between characters
9) A Battle of Wills - 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of fire and reigns at the top January 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have not been familiar with Edward Shearmur's scores until this one. I decided to give it a try just for the fun of it and I was blown away. This is awesome music that really burns. For the most part, the music contains tons and tons of brass, eerie electronics, wild string passages, wailing woodwinds, and tons of militaristic percussion, especially the snare drum. There is plenty of exciting action music, heroic passages, and driving rhythms in this score. A lot of what is heard in this score is similar to what Elliot Goldenthal writes largely because the orchestrator of this score, Robert Elhai, Goldenthal uses in just about every score. The London Metropolitan Orchestra performs this very difficult score with remarkable stamina and courage. Knockout and I do mean knockout action music can be found in "Enter the Dragon", "Field Attack", "Marauders",
"Archangels", "Inferno", and "Magic Hour". "Field Attack" contains some exciting and rhythmic string passages, along with driving and militaristic snare drums. "Meet Van Zan" contains the main theme which is found in other tracks as well. It is a majestic and noble horn motif played around a militaristic percussive rhythm. "Magic Hour" and "Rebirth" contain music that is more toward the lighter side, as the other tracks mainly focused on the darker side. The incredible brass fanfare main theme closes out the soundtrack in "Rebirth" that ends things in a heroic fashion. If you are into Elliot Goldenthal or like the score to The Matrix by Don Davis, then you will absolutely love this. This is superb and outstanding film music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reign of Sound July 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Edward Shearmur has again surprised us with an enormous sounding score to the underrated genre film "Reign of Fire". There is no pretty romantic themes here, not even a chance to take a breath during this recordings mass of pure action cues. If you enjoy well performed powerhouse orchestral music that hits you like a black metal band then this is for you. Certainly this score is not for everyone but if you are like me and saw the film and was taken by the score then what you heard in the film is what you get here, 50 minutes and 40 seconds worth of Fire- Breathing Sound

4.0 out of 5 stars Ugly, harsh and brilliant June 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's easy to imagine many listeners turning off this score after a few minutes or so - the music is not attractive in a traditional sense and there are a lot of `sounds' as oppose to music. The score is unrelentlessly harsh, discordant and terrifying with no comforting upbeat moments and a tone which is always hellish and depressing. The planet Earth has become one big ruin and battleground with few places in which to hide from the beasts and we can feel the characters' constant awareness of the dangers they face. The lighter moments are just as bleak, filled with unnerving suspense and often give way to terrifyingly powerful brass attacks as the dragons make their appearance. The gorgeous main theme does offer a little contrast and hope though, but not much. First introduced in Meet Van Zam, it starts off brooding and quietly heroic and then develops into a superb militaristic statement with snare drums and horns, suggesting that this brave new character may lead them to victory.

As with his later Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Shearmur's action writing is superb throughout although in a completely different style. However, there is some fun to be had identifying certain sounds and rhythms that Shearmur would again utilise on Sky Captain and there are quite a few...The first track is a highlight, beginning with low rumblings and eerie electronic sounds, gradually getting louder, layering on industrial sounds and low strings. It keeps getting louder until it becomes a scary and powerful piece of orchestra and percussion. It's a great start to the score giving a sense of the beasts' awakening and rise from the depths. Field attack is another highlight - it's exciting and suspenseful with some immensely powerful brass writing and shrilling high woodwinds.

I gave this score a 5 Star rating because I love Movie Score. A movie without a great score is a boring movie regardless of the actors, the SFX and the budget. Read more
