This is my first Fernando Velazquez soundtrack. According to the liner notes in the CD, Director Brett Ratner was impressed by Velazquez's "The Impossible" score and brought him on board to provide the music for Hercules. I haven't seen the movie yet but the trailer's look cool. It seems like Hollywood is on a Hercules kick right now having released two films within a short period of time based off the mythological hero. The Velazquez score is largely what you'd expect to find for a film of this nature. There is plenty of epic sounding action music that thankfully is complimented with a "Hercules theme". This is good news because I really hate it when a composer slams a score with tons of action noise and doesn't even bother to give the heroes or villains any sort of musical reference. Track one starts the journey with a big bang introducing us to the major theme of the hero. We hear this again repeated in various ways throughout the score. Brass and percussion pound out the theme and upon first listening to it...it really reminded me of Brian Tyler's "Ironman 3" theme. Maybe it's just the similar instrumentation. Track 2, "Pirate Camp", really throws in a twist that took me back for a second. The composer adds a drum kit to the mix and to me it just doesn't feel right. It seems out of place when compared to what makes up the majority of the score. We hear this drum kit again in Track 17, "Dungeon & I am Hercules". The drum kit makes these cues stand out a bit too much for me.

The score isn't all about the action music. Velazquez has incorporated some very nice subtle pieces that you'll be wanting more of. Tracks 5, 6, 8 are some of my favorites. Track 8, "I Will Believe in You" has some really nice choir work in it.

There have been lots of films made about Hercules, the muscle-bound demi-god from Greek mythology, over the years. Steve Reeves played him in the classic Italian ‘swords and sandals’ movie in 1957, Arnold Schwarzenegger played him in his film debut in Hercules in New York in 1970, and Kellan Lutz played him in The Legend of Hercules just a few months ago, but in this latest version directed by Brett Ratner the bulging biceps and undersized loincloth are sported by former wrestling star The Rock, now thespianning under his real name, Dwayne Johnson. The film is based on the comic book series by Steve Moore and is a tale of revenge and betrayal involving the death of Hercules’s wife and sons years previously. The film co-stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and John Hurt, and has done pretty brisk business at the box office in a summer crowded with action blockbusters.

Whatever you may think of Brett Ratner as a director, one thing that cannot be disputed is his excellent taste in film music. Ratner gave Lalo Schifrin a brief late-career renaissance via the Rush Hour movies, hired Danny Elfman for The Family Man and Red Dragon, and brought John Powell into the world of super heroes with X-Men: First Class. For Hercules, Ratner gave a first mainstream Hollywood assignment to Spanish composer Fernando Velázquez, one of the leading lights in the group of outstanding young Spanish and Spain-based composers that includes Roque Baños, Federico Jusid, Arnau Bataller and Vìctor Reyes. Velázquez’s scores for films such as El Orfanato, El Mal Ajeno, Mama and The Impossible show him to be a wonderful dramatist capable of truly beautiful orchestral themes and moments of great power.

Hearing a sample track would be helpful @amazon when making a decision to purchase the CD or not. Thanks!
There was a song in the movie trailer that I absolutely loved, but I can't seem to track it down - no title or anything, even when I try to Shazam it. I dont want to waste my money on the CD if the song isnt on there.

I like collecting soundtrack albums of some of my favorite movies. This is one of them. Fernando Velazquez did a good job of composing the music for this movie.
