Editorial Reviews

Schwarzenegger's time-traveling, world-wrecking cyborg is back, but most of the original films' creative team and cast have been replaced here, with Italian-born composer Marco Beltrami (who's cut his journeyman chops on a raft of contemporary sci-fi/horror films and sequels, including the Scream franchise, Joy Ride, and Resident Evil) being a sage choice to score this third installment. Pumping Brad Fiedel's brooding original theme with even more menace, the composer proceeds to forge a massive, unsettling panorama of percussion-driven, electronic suffused orchestral fury that evokes an unsettling, mechanized world gone mad. Sounding like the symphonic sensibilities of Prokofiev and Shostakovich as interpreted by the mechanized forges and stamping machines of some hellish assembly line, Beltrami uses the most aggressive elements of 20th century Russian romanticism here like a steel club. There are moments of stem-winding suspense and surprisingly tranquil respites, but the main attraction is the sturm und drang of Beltrami's furious and often other-worldly action music. Also included are the gentle acoustic ballads "Open to Me" and "I Told You" by Dillon Dixon and Mia Julia, respectively, performances that seem jarringly out of place contrasted against the score's orchestral metal-fest. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Terminator Score Yet! June 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I went straight out and bought the CD when it was released and I fully encourage any Terminator fan to go out and buy this. It has alot of calm and peaceful music but yet with alot of action tunes you would expect from this major action film. Also the original score has been placed on this CD the main theme from T2: JD, which is really awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good August 5, 2003
By Gustav
Format:Audio CD
I saw this movie 5 days ago, and the whole thing literally blew me away. The end of the movie left me a bit sad. Then I began checking out the soundtrack. The songs (all instrumental, except 2 bonus tracks) reflect the kind of thrill you might've experienced while watching the movie. Especially, the 17th track, Radio, that's the most beautiful song I've ever heard. I like feel sad when hearing it. The new composer, Marco Beltrami isn't as bad as you might think. He really knows what he's doing, and the music is similar to the Terminator 2 soundtrack. Anyway, this soundtrack is amazing. If you really liked T3, go buy this soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars A score that elevates itself above the film itself. November 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is truly a great score that plays better than the movie itself. Beltrami has taken the bones of the Terminator score and given it a new breath of life by removing all synthetic sounds and replacing them with a full orchestra that is both beautiful and unnerving at the same time. I am very surprised that film studios have not used the score in trailers for other upcoming action movies, because there are some heavy, swelling tracks on this album.

The highlights include:
1. A Day in the Life - the first half quietly gives way to a pounding climax worthy of a modern action film trailer.
4. JC Theme - this is a surprisingly mournful and emotionally deep track that I don't even think is in the film itself.
7. TX's Hot Tail - a track that pretty much summons up images of a runaway transport truck in the wrong lane of traffic.
16. Terminator Tangle - another pounding, well-structured song.
17. Radio - This is arguably the best track on the album, and is the song that plays during the "twist ending". Melancholy and strong.
18. T3 - another great, building track with a hard beat and a creative play on the classic Terminator tune.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wasteful in the extreme. June 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
What an uncompelling, bland, underwhelming, repetitive, derivative, emotionless score. Beltrami has completely erased the classic, trademark Terminator score, and replaced it with B-grade garbage. I would expect to hear something like this on a made-for-TV movie about, I dunno, killer lobsters or something. It's *that* bad. Pick up the score to 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shame it isn't Brad Fiedel, but still a good effort June 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've been a huge fan of the Terminator series as far back as I can remember. I loved everything about them, the special effects, the story, the action, and especially the music. Brad Fiedel, not a mainstream composer, scored both T1 & T2 basically using frying pans and keyboards and it sounded great! The immortal theme of the Terminator's heart beat is recognized almost everywhere. For Terminator 3, the entire movie was given an overhaul. New director, writer, producer, and composer. Marco Beltrami has done some decent scores in the past few years including Resident Evil with Marilyn Manson, Mimic, Scream, and The Crow: Salvation. The score to T3 has differences and similarities to Fiedel's score and at the same time advances on a few new of his own. I have not seen Terminator 3 but buying a soundtrack before a film is released is a good way to foreshadow how well it will be. Honestly I'm a little scared about Terminator 3 ruining the series but with a good score like this one, it might have a chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not Brad Fiedel, get over it August 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
While Brad Fiedel will always be the true musical voice of the Terminator; Marco Beltrami (who composed the scores to the Scream trilogy, Joy Ride, Mimic, and Resident Evil with Marilyn Manson) does a fine job with scoring this overhauled installment of the Terminator series. Replacing Fiedel's synth-laced score with a more conventional metal themed score, Beltrami has conceived an above average film score that falls short of it's predecessor's, but just like the new film, succeeds in it's own right. The first half of the disc is excellent, but begins to lose steam before picking up again with a brief re-imagining of Fiedel's classic awe-inspiring Termiantor theme. The last two songs are totally out of place here, and are absolutely worthless in terms of having to do with the film. Besides that, this is worth owning for any Terminator fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Beltrami's best. January 21, 2007
By John
Format:Audio CD
I'm a pretty big fan of Beltrami, but this soundtrack was a rather large disappointment.

The main fault is that Beltrami used a Hollywood in-studio symphony for the recording, but it doesn't sound full or grand enough... it sounds processed. Cheap. If he had recorded these epic sounds with a *real* symphony, like Williams or Morricone, I imagine this score would have been much better.

Maybe he was trying to deliberately go for a processed sound because the film is about machines taking over. Unfortunately, it just sounds tinny and thin and - at times - rather laughable. A shame, really.

The music itself isn't really that great either - he was working off of Fiedel's original score and trying to implement some new stuff, and that's admirable in and of itself, but this is one of his weaker efforts.
