It's a great soundtrack, but missing a lot of music from the movie,
This review is from: The Bourne Ultimatum (Audio CD)
First of all, before any of you say to yourself, "I don't believe you" I swear to you I'm telling you the truth. PLEASE read this review. I like Bourne movies. Not a Bourne-hater. But there's a reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5.
I liked the movie and also liked the music within the movie, but like most of John Powell's soundtracks, a lot of the music that was actually in the movie isn't on the soundtrack. If you watch the Waterloo sequence again in theaters, you'll notice that a HUGE portion of that music isn't on the soundtrack. Don't believe me? Watch the movie again. When the assassin runs away after shooting the journalist, none of that music [which is GOOD music] appears on the soundtrack.
Another example: The music for the entire Morocco chase scene between Daniels, Desh, Bourne, and Nikki Parsons does not appear on the soundtrack.
Yes, I'm aware that this is a "soundtrack" and not a "score", but I feel like I wasted my money. I thought that there would at least be music from the scenes I actually enjoyed most in the movie.

I thought I was the only one who felt that the music was missing, I am glad you put it in the review. The reason I bought the CD was for the Waterloo chase scene, which is the best part of the whole soundtrack, (also because most of the other music is repeated from Supremacy). I went through all the tracks 5 times just hoping to listen to the chase scene at the waterloo station, but didn't find it. You confirmed it that it doesn't exist. It's ridiculous why the CD would have all the repeated music but miss some of the original soundtracks from the movie.
