Clever combination of symphonic orchestra and electronics

I only recommend this soundtrack to those people who do not have nightmares
about synthetisers,synthetised instruments and drum and bass musical stlye combined with symphonic orchestra.I think that the combination of the above mentioned two can result excellent soundtracks such as this if the job is given to the right person.Well,in this case,the right person is called John Powell.
The woodwinds with drum and bass music provides one of the best suspenseful music I have ever heard.The brasses together with synthetised instruments such as synthetised strings,further accompanied by synthetisers provide a vivid soundscape that is full of soaring energy,and furthermore,highly enjoyable and exciting.This orchestral solution not only fits to a movie that is thriller/action hibrid,but will most likely entertain you if you are an energetic person or if you like such scores that are full of soaring energy.
