Harry Gregson-Williams and Tony Scott have a special thing going on here. Tony Scott has utilized Harry's talents on his past 7 films. In those 7 films Tony Scott has built one of the more recognizable signature styles from a director and Harry Gregson-Wiliams has developed one of the most unique styles as a composer. Harry's intense electronic style is the perfect compliment to Tony's frenetic visuals and fast cutting. So what does Unstoppable have to offer?

If you look at a Harry score for a Tony Scott film you have to look at it as a continuing piece of work. I truly believe each score Harry does for Tony is a continuation of the last one he did. If you played all 7 scores back to back they would actually flow and work as a combined experience. With Unstoppable it's all about the action. While Man On Fire and Deja Vu had an emotional punch this here is pure adrenaline in full Harry style. Certain aspects and sounds of the score have come to be Harry signatures. Do they appear in his previous scores? Yes. They are literally copied and pasted. Is this plagiarism? I don't think so. To say Harry is lazy or unoriginal is an ignorant statement. Why isn't Terrence Malick or Sergio Leone lazy for reusing same shots and sequences? I guess it's okay for directors to be auteurs but not composers, and that's exactly what Harry is. He's an auteur very much like other great composers around him working today.

The score balances his electronic intensity with a delicate piano theme, which can be said for most of Harry's scores for Tony Scott. The experience is a fun and intense ride. It's definitely up a notch from The Taking Of Pelham 123, which was a much more subtle score to a more performance heavy film. Here it's mostly balls to the wall and I love it.

After seeing this movie I knew I had to get the soundtrack. The film's composer delivers a score that's as fast and unpredictably wild as the speed of the out of control train that is the beast taking center stage on the screen. Based on a true story, the film explores the day in the life of two railroad workers, a veteran train engineer (Frank Barnes) played by Denzel Washington and rookie conductor (Will) played by Chris Pine whose routine day at the office suddenly takes an unexpected and dangerous turn for the worse when a lapse in judgment from a crew of maintenance workers sets in motion a chain of events that spells trouble for the citizens of a small town in Pennsylvania when a train carrying a dangerous cargo of hazardous materials gets away from the two rail workers and now starts a course bound for disaster. With the clock ticking and the out of control train moving under its own power rapidly picking up speed, railroad hotshots Frank and Chris begin a desperate race against time to intercept the train or (The Beast) as its called before it impacts the town and causes catastrophic damage. From there the tension only builds as the train gets closer and city officials scramble to hatch innovative and on the spot decisions to try to avert staggering losses of life and incalculable property damage. Walking out of the theatre, the film left me with a whole new perspective on the type of work that railroad workers and train engineers do for a living. It's a dangerous job. I guarantee you that after seeing this movie, you will never look at trains the same way again.
The film's score only serves to heighten the sense of urgency and excitement as daring plans are executed to try and regain control of the situation.

This film was a total surprise for me, it was not something that I caught in the theaters but on DVD after the fact, and man, what a thoroughly engrossing ride! A big part of the experience for me was the tension reflecting, pulse pounding score by Mr. Gregson-Williams, this was the perfect marriage of artistry with between the audio and visual, about as perfect an extension of the story as you can get. And since I am an avid collector of cinematic scores, this was a great addition to my library, as pulse pounding and energetic and "A Man on Fire", but with a bit more refinement and maturity of style, a real pleasure to listen to. There isn't any negative for me here other than it seems to be over too soon, that's how this score grabs you and pulls you in, over and over. All I can do is thank Mr. Gregson-Williams for yet another fabulous piece of work and hit the "repeat all" button on my cd player.

Truly an amazing score. Harry Gregson-Williams has his own style which is so difficult to replicate anywhere else. Once you hear it you know its his. I love the Frank Barnes theme which is woven beautifully throughout the different tracks, the soothing reassuring piano lets the audience know that there is still hope in the midst of turmoil and distress. I enjoyed listening to this soundtrack while reading books, in particular the Hunger Games. If you ever read the Hunger Games series this soundtrack is PERFECT for it! When I walk around and listen to these songs especially "Frank Barnes", "Who do I Kiss First", and "Are You in or Out" I feel the music come into my heart and speak to it in a language I can't really understand but when it is all said and done you know what the meaning of the music is without really understanding the language....I don't know if that even makes sense...this is just proof that this soundtrack left me "dumb-founded" ;)
