Buy it... if you seek an improvement on the franchise's music in this extremely frantic and disjointed electronic and brass explosion of noise that could easily accompany a first-person killing video game.

Avoid it... if you are expecting the same level of sophistication and motific development that you hear in most other Jeff Danna efforts.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse: (Jeff Danna) If you stop for a moment to give this film a single second of logical thought, then you're wasting your time and missing the point. The only reason for a sequel film such as Resident Evil: Apocalypse to be made is to siphon money from teenagers (and those who would still like to be a teenager and/or sleep with one), most of whom have probably killed the zombie villains in the story at some point in the original video game series which inspired the films. Throw in the opportunity to place the bodies of Milla Jovovich and Sienna Guillory on display and you have flick aimed at one specific audience, and critics and reviewers are not among that group. You have to wonder what residents of Toronto think of seeing their city interpreted as Raccoon City, its inhabitants turned into zombies by another escaped virus, and the likes of which will be annihilated by a nuclear weapon to save the rest of the world from its residents. It would be nice if Jovovich and Guillory could escape the city along with their other tag-alongs, but who really cares? Director and writer Alexander Witt and Paul W.S. Anderson (respectively) have obviously taken inspiration from John Carpenter, but that doesn't mean that they did a respectable job of capturing the spirit of Carpenter's stylistic uniqueness with this 2004 abomination. One of many areas where they tried to emulate a Carpenter film was in the soundtrack department. Aside from the song situation (which led to an album all to itself long before the score album was pressed), the score imagined by the filmmakers would have the characteristic combination of orchestral force with electronic modernism and coolness, and the talented and quickly rising Jeff Danna was their choice for composer. Listeners could hold at least some minimal hope that Danna would produce a superior effort to the awkward combination of Marco Beltrami and Marilyn Manson for the original Resident Evil soundtrack two years prior. Danna was coming off of a highly acclaimed score for The Gospel of John, shedding the gorgeous operatic heights of that music in favor of ghoulish and relentless pounding of orchestral and synthetic atonality in Resident Evil: Apocalypse. For those who had heard Danna's earlier efforts, including "O" and The Kid Stays in the Picture, Danna's diversity of talent was already apparent. Even so, Resident Evil: Apocalypse is about a far of a stretch from those scores (and his collaborative works with his brother, Mychael, Green Dragon among the best) in attitude as one could get.
