Editorial Reviews

Original soundtrack to the 2012 motion picture composed by Ramin Djawadi. Oscar winner Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star in the action-thriller Safe House. Washington plays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run. When the South African safe house he's remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative (Reynolds) escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.

Ramin Djawadi has been busy doing television recently with shows like Game Of Thrones and Person Of Interest. Last year he did the Fright Night remake, which was an enjoyable score. So, what do we have from Ramin for Safe House? Surprisingly this is a really great and well rounded score. Immediately I was thrown back to the 90's where great action scores lived. This is definitely a great action score with graspable themes and motifs. Ramin did a great job with the Medal Of Honor game in 2010, but here he hones his craft to make a much more tightly composed action score.

We start off with a great opening and immediately he sets up the narrative. There's a significant amount of character behind the music too. The movie is your essential cat and mouse game like The Fugitive or Enemy Of The State, but the music definitely has a smirking smart-ass undertone to it that echoes Denzel's character. What I love about the score is that Djawadi utilizes percussion extremely well. It never becomes too much or too loud. We have just the right amount of rhythm to keep the music flowing. The score has some quiet parts that build slight tension. It's not tension in the sense of a thriller or anything like that, but rather tension along the lines of something exciting is about to happen. Then with slow builds the music will pick up tempo and come back down. The structure is great and it never loses you as a listener. You won't get bored with it because he crafted such a great and distinct soundscape for the story. Surprisingly there is a bit of emotion behind the music too. It doesn't try to get too touchy-feely, but the right amount of humanization is put into the score so it's not a mind-numbing experience.

Safe House is a great score from Ramin Djawadi.

Ramin Djawadi is no stranger to action music, but the way he delivers is very unique, whether it be the quiet build to a pulsing electric sound like in "Person of Interest," or heart-pounding percussion and loud choir voices like in "Game of Thrones" and "Dracula Untold." Djawadi has made a very peculiar name of himself along side popular composers like Hans Zimmer (his mentor), James Newton Howard, Brian Tyler, Harry Gregson-Williams and Bear McCreary, and here with "Safe House," Djawadi channels a more familiar sound and overall score in albeit a fast and pulsating way.

The score is very similar to the scores of John Powell's "Bourne" films, using almost no synth and a whole lot of traditional instrumentation, mainly with percussion. So, unless you're a fan of action scores, intense orchestral music or any of the composers listed above, i'd give this soundtrack a listen before buying it, as it's very similar to scores like "Green Zone," "The Bourne Supremacy," and "Unstoppable."

This is all instrumental music. It's okay but doesn't have some of the other songs that were in the movie on it.
