John Williams surprisingly divorced himself from his running-mate, director Steven Spielberg and united with the most unlikely duos of Emmerich and Devlin. Possibly, in a move to help validate their work, Williams came in to replace their long time collaborator David Arnold. To put it simply, "It worked."
John Williams score continues along the lines of his more mature sound of the mid to late 1990's and also reflects the power and exultation of his work for the 1984 and 1996 Olympics.
The Patriot is yet another solid effort from Willaims anchoring a surprisingly solid effort from Emmerich and Devlin- hopefully, marking things to come from them.
