This score was really the one that drew me into film scores. I probably saw the film a half dozen times in theaters (What's a 9-year-old to do in the summer anyway?) and the music was totally effective for that ingeniusly-devised action thriller.

Clemmenson's statements about the underdeveloped electronics are true, but the strength of the score is in its composition (the real meat of film music is always in its written notes) and its played to full-potboiling and groove effect.

*** 1/2 to ****, If I were on Clemmenson's scale I'd go ahead and give it ****.

Essential action music for those who like the MV sound (I think this is better than the Rock)
