This is the second film score from Mr. Doyle this summer...the first one was for "Thor", a sweeping, adventurous romp that combined a sense of grandeur with familiar pounding action cues that complimented the God of Thunder's screen exploits perfectly, as well as an album that is a good listen on it's own.

Now Doyle rounds out the summer with his musical contribution to the long-running Planet of the Apes series. He follows his own muse here, and to some this score may sound a bit like the one he created for Thor, but I think the differences are apparent with repeated listening. The action cues percolate along with a heavy percussion, but not as overwrought as the variety of beats that Elfman bought to his "Apes" effort years ago.

Instead, Doyle focuses on emotion with his score....much like the movie itself. Tracks like "Lofty Swing"."Muir Woods" and "Off You Go" soar with feeling and the more action-style cues like "Bright Eyes Escapes" and "Zoo Breakout" also have an emotional pull that compliments the movie perfectly and sound great.

This score works as a stand-alone listen, cued up in the order heard in the film (always a nice touch) and can stand proudly with the best of the whole "Apes" series of music...

Looking forward to more "Apes" adventure....and more from Mr. Doyle...

Even with definite shades of the Media Venures/Remote Control "Zimmer" sound so prevalent today, this is a very good score for an amazong movie.

Patrick Doyle has a gift for utilizing the Zimmer sound better than the Zimmer/MV/RC organization that created and evolved that style.

The african percussion and vocals are more apparent here that any of the online samples suggest, though there is nothing overbearing, and the themes are beautifully written and rendered.

Sometimes action music is so harsh that listening to it outside the context of the film is not a pleasant experience. While the music may work in the film, by itself it proves to be loud and obnoxious. This is definitely NOT the case with Doyle's score to "Rise of the Planet of the Apes". This confirms to me that Doyle is capable of great and memorable music and that his earlier hits with "Hamlet" and "Henry V" were not a fluke. Like most people who saw this movie in the theater, I was pleasantly surprised by how good the film was. I truly believe that Doyle's competant score is the reason why the film rises in quality as a viewing experience. I highly recommend this score and I say "Go watch the movie" too!

I will admit here and now that when I saw the trailer for the film I laughed. I laughed at how ridiculous this movie looked, and I definitely did my share of mocking. Then the reviews came out. Then the word of mouth spread. Then it raked in crazy box office numbers. Then I became curious. So, I saw the film. I was absolutely blown away. Not only is this a great film, but in a summer full of studio stinkers this movie is among the best all summer. The story was engaging beyond belief and Andy Serkis' performance was riveting. I was choking back tears at times and the main reason was Patrick Doyle's brilliant score. Composers please take note as this summer has proven that Doyle is the new summer sheriff in town. After his riveting score to Thor he blows that effort out of the water with this one. The score is so carefully crafted, mesmerizing, emotional and story driven.

The score starts off with anchoring down a theme for Caesar and let it be clear that this film is about Caesar. The music drives his character from start to finish, and since he has no dialogue it's music that is the main resource we have as an audience to connect with him. Doyle executes with such elegance and grace that the intensity never feels forced, and this is indeed an intense and agressive score. The first time the score brought chills to me was with the track "Off You Go". It's the last moment of pure beauty and inspiration that we see for Ceasar before things head downhill. The music then becomes extremely psychological as Doyle takes us through Caesar's thinking process and eventually leads to his escape and revolution. The music becomes harsh with lots and lots of percussion. The tribal element is very apparent. Things become extremely chaotic as the score raises the hairs on the back of your neck.

Really enjoyed Doyle's work here; lots of intense, rhythmic, rugged spiccato strings and percussion, but some moments of real beauty too. Overall a great score. Highly recommended.

Anyone familiar with British cinema will recognize the name, Patrick Doyle. His work with actor/producer/director/writer Kenneth Brannagh started in the late 80's and is still going on now. Most recently they worked on the very entertaining Marvel film adaptation of THOR starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman.

So, enough of his background.

The saga for THE PLANET OF THE APES began many decades ago. The original series was made from the late 60's thru the early 70's. Composer's Jerry Goldsmith, Leonard Rosenman and Tom Scott worked on those films.Also in the 70's were two television versions of the franchise. Animated and live action on two different networks. The series has a huge cult following. 2001, director Tim Burton, no stranger to "unusual" storytelling took on the project. I loved the movie and it's score by Danny Elfman.

A decade passes and now we have RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Not exactly a remake. More of an homage to events and characters that happened in the previous incarnations. Along for the ride... composer Patrick Doyle.

Let me just say... this was my favorite movie of 2011. It has heart and humor. It's fascinating and exciting. The film is visually arresting with knowing in-jokes to names and events from the original series.

Composer Patrick Doyle's score draws you in from the moment the film starts. The producers/director also wisely let the music "noticed" by the audience. Many instances there is not dialog... just visual storytelling, with the score as a major character.

This is the best film of 2011 and score! Folks, it doesn't get much better than this.
