So, I was looking forward to this movie for one major reason. That reason was Harry Gregson-Williams. His last score release was nearly 1 year ago with Prince Caspian, which was an amazing score. John Powell was the last composer to leave his mark on this franchise, and when I heard Harry was taking the helm I got super excited.

I'll stop dancing around and get right to the point. This score is okay. It has it's moments and plenty of Harry's signatures layered throughout. He carries some percussion over from Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and some vocals that remind me of Kingdom Of Heaven. It's a symphonic score layered with his signature electronics. I think the biggest thing I was disappointed about was that the score never really took off. It reaches a level and pretty much stays at it during the entire film. Surprisingly the film also lacks any major thematic or melodic material. There isn't a tune in the score that you can put your finger on and associate it to this score. So in that sense this score is floating around without a real identity. The best stuff here in my opinion is the music for Kayla, who is Wolverine's love interest who ends up getting killed. There are hints at some touching music there, but again the story leaves no room for it to blossom.

I can't really blame Harry for this one because honestly the movie was just plain awful. There wasn't anything in the film worth remembering and the writing is laughably bad. Everything seems rushed and the story is an utter mess. Harry composed this score knowing well that they would probably continue the franchise, but most likely with a different director and a different composer. In the end there a few pieces that are fun to listen to, but as a huge Gregson-Williams fan it didn't meet my expectations.

This is the kind of music I dream of creating. The melodies are subtle yet complex, the action is frenzied and yet accessible... and the production? Oh my word. The production on this score is a slobber-knocking right hook out of sound quality heaven! If I had one negative thing to say, it's simply that I would have LOVED a theme for Wolverine/Logan. "Kayla" has an absolutely beautiful theme, and I think something similar for Logan would have been incredibly powerful.

One of my favorite action scores, and CERTAINLY in my top 5 Harry Gregson Williams scores.

Harry Gregson-Williams adds a new feel to the X-Men universe with this soundtrack. It's probably closer to his other works, like the Narnia series, than the other X-Men movies. It certainly has a raw emotional power that adds to the movie. However, for whatever reason, it isn't particularly memorable - or at least as memorable as the Narnia sccores.

Just as the story behind Wolverine unfolded on screen, so does the musical score behind the story, which is just as engrossing. I highly recommend it. Action cues abound, with some romance. From the co-composer of "The Rock" comes a thrilling soundtrack.

What a beautiful score. It really made the movie IMO. Various themes and the opening track is great. Love theme is quite good too. Much better than the new Wolverine score.

Harry Gregson-Williams does some nice work on this score for Wolverine's first solo film outing. The score opens with the title montage that ran after the opening scene of the movie, "Logan Through Time", which is a nice way to start. I think my favorite cue is "Wade Goes to Work". After this moment, Deadpool's character and Ryan Reynolds performance was really wasted. The rest of the tracks are what you would expect from a summer hero film, with another standout coming at the conclusion in "...I'll Find My Own Way."
