Product Description

Rescue Dawn stars Christian Bale and Steve Zahn. It is written and directed by Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), based on his acclaimed 1997 documentary, Little Dieter Needs to Fly. The film will be released by MGM Pictures on July 4, 2007.
Rescue Dawn recounts the true story of German-born Dieter Dengler (Christian Bale), who dreamed of flying. After making his way to the United States, he joined the Navy during the Vietnam War and became a pilot. He was shot down over Laos and captured, but eventually organized a daring escape with a small band of captives.
Composer Klaus Badelt began his musical career writing and producing music for dozens of movies and commercials in his native Germany. Since moving to California at the invitation of Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer, he has regularly collaborated with Zimmer and other composers, and penned his own projects, including Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.

Review

"This may be the first Vietnam-set film in history not to feature a bar of Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones or indeed any other rock music on its soundtrack. Instead, apart from Klaus Badelt s keening original score, featuring mournful cellos and piano tones, music used includes Wagnerian opera and other classical compositions. --Variety

This score is one of the best Badelt has ever composed.
Matthew Lambertson
Yet, this music stands alone so beautifully and still manages to be evocative of the upbeat spirit of what could have been a downbeat story.
Kevin G. Ricks
I would recommend both soundtracks highly to all fans of motion picture scores.

This score is one of the best Badelt has ever composed. This score, even more so than his recent "The Promise," proves that he has his own immense talent beyond his work with Hans Zimmer. This work is quiet and subtle, rich and beautiful, mournful and hopeful. It's centered around a generously lengthy theme featured in the opening track, one that comes to a double climax in "Rescue." The song, unlike many on soundtracks, is well-integrated with the score and doesn't interrupt the listening experience.

If you like Badelt, or if you like scores like "The Thin Red Line", then "Rescue Dawn" is a must-have.

As a film score enthusiast, I am always amazed at the talent of some of todays composers. Mr. Badelt has written a movie symphony for this score and as I read in other reviews, the music stands on it's own because of the richness of the themes, and the orchestral colour. Well done Mr. Badelt. I discovered your talent in the soundtrack for the Time Machine. That music also has some soul stirring music.

I would recommend both soundtracks highly to all fans of motion picture scores.

This is an excellent evocative soundtrack to accompany the emotional journey through incredible hardship made by Dieter Dengler as an American prisoner of war in remote Laos during the Viet Nam conflict. Much of the music reminds me of the particular scene during the film and that achievement is always a sign of an effective combination of sound and vision.

First of all, this film blew me away. I went because I think Christian Bale is the best actor of his generation. His Dieter Dengler, though, unique to say the least, and I was blown away by how different from the typical "hero" the character and thus the brilliant performance were. But I also realized, even during the movie, that the soundtrack was deepening and adding to the characterization and the overall impact of the picture. It was never distracting, and did not call attention to itself for itself, which I think the best soundtracks avoid. Yet, this music stands alone so beautifully and still manages to be evocative of the upbeat spirit of what could have been a downbeat story. It is uplifting and transporting.....just, as I imagine, the real-life Dengler was, and how he survived. It's a perfect match for a near-perfect movie. Bravo, Mr. Bedelt!
