Comments about the soundtrack for Toy Soldiers (Robert Folk)
The most underated composer out there.

Between Toy Soldiers and Beastmaster 2, Folk easily topples the likes of John Debney's Cutthroat Island, for "best score with an awful movie". Don't get me wrong, I like Debney (and in particular, Cutthroat Island), but Debney has had his chance to score good movies, while Folk really never has. Everyone should give "Dar the Hero" from Beastmaster 2 a listen, especially if you douby my subject line. It's a ten minute track and takes a little bit to get going, but if you give it an honest listen, you will be seconding that statement as an absolute no-brainer.

I agree.This score is one of the undiscovered gems of action music.All tracks are performed well,and the moving,exciting action cues performed by piano,strings,brasses and heavy percussion are combined well with the relaxing and more playful cues which ilustrates the energy,good manner,determination and cheekiness of the boys who are called anti-social because of their bad behaviour,and their power to act.There are also musical moments that are full of tension.A true masterpiece.If you are interested in more music by Robert Folk,check out his website:http://www.robertfolk.com.
