Buy it... if you have an open mind about attractive Cuban rhythms and a slight touch of jazz in a highly stylish, percussion-driven score.

Avoid it... if you are only interested in hearing a Caribbean band when you're on the decks of a Caribbean cruise liner.

Revell
Out of Time: (Graeme Revell) One of the early hopefuls for dramatic films seeking awards consideration in the autumn season of 2003, Out of Time is the complicated tale of an investigation by Denzel Washington's character into a local homicide. As the respected chief of police in a small town in the Florida Keys, the mystery of the investigation continues to build as more of the clues and evidence in the case point at himself. The tired, predictable plot of Out of Time was its greatest enemy, with fallacies of logic abounding in so many places that the film will leave you dumbfounded if you're still awake by its conclusion. Washington's solid acting couldn't compensate for a comatose supporting cast, though due credit from critics was given to the production for its exotic photography and ethnically stylish score by composer Graeme Revell. Director Carl Franklin had rotated between several composers (from Cliff Eidelman to Elmer Bernstein) for his ten films to that point, and for Out of Time, he continued his collaboration with Revell following the previous year's High Crimes. Revell had a productive, although somewhat disappointing year in 2003. His score for Daredevil was too highly anticipated, and when combined with Freddy vs. Jason that summer, Revell's output had been sufficient for each of his assignments but underwhelming in quality. Fortunately, Out of Time was a project that lead Revell down an entirely different genre path. The setting of the thriller established a clear direction for the mood of the score, and with the seedy half of the story inserting some misplaced romance in the environment, Revell jumped at the opportunity to fill the film with wall to wall ethnicity of alluring character. Utilizing a combination of Latino, Cuban, and African rhythms and instrumentation, Revell accomplished what was probably not necessary for the film (the way Hollywood works, a film like this could very easily have ended up with a lifeless, electronic underscore). The active Caribbean spirit in Out of Time is a marvelous choice for the film's musical identity, and despite the smaller size of its ensemble, the end result fills the room with an enticingly diverse range of sound. Drums, guitars, keyboards, bass, and trumpet are the heart and soul of Out of Time, performing a snazzy title theme that swings with several different Caribbean rhythms.
