Buy it... if the edgy, electronic action material of Trevor Rabin is as satisfying for you as his usual, pleasantly harmonic anthems.

Avoid it... if you mock largely stock synthetic scores for their childish and embarrassing lack of complexity or style.

The 6th Day: (Trevor Rabin) The concept of The 6th Day was an even more realistic examination of identity loss than Arnold Schwarzenegger's more famous Total Recall, with which The 6th Day was often compared. It poses a theory that corporate defiance of a ban on human cloning in the near future would inevitably lead to an assassination plot, conceivably yielding a decent action thriller along the way. The film featured Schwarzenegger as both actor and producer, though despite his best efforts to resurrect his career in the years before his retirement to politics, The 6th Day was, like End of Days, a monumental failure. The intriguing elements of the plot, as well as a heartfelt, philosophical role for Robert Duvall, were glossed over with tired action scenes that exposed Schwarzenegger's as a overgrown relic in the genre. The production itself went through several significant changes in its journey to the screen, including an early attachment to the script by director Joe Dante. Film score collectors greeted the prospect of pairing composer Jerry Goldsmith with a futuristic Schwarzenegger film once again with great enthusiasm. But replacement director Roger Spottiswoode sought to collaborate with his Tomorrow Never Dies composer, David Arnold, for The 6th Day. When Arnold himself pulled out of the assignment, Spottiswoode, Schwarzenegger, and Columbia were treated to a standard Media Ventures formula solution by Trevor Rabin, whose career had just reached its crescendo in the late 1990's. Like Schwarzenegger's style of old fashioned, muscular action, Rabin's stereotypical blockbuster sound of just a few years prior was already showing its age. Once thought to be a contributor to the definition of cool and contemporary scores for the next decade of film scoring, Rabin offered a general style that outlasted his own renderings of it. His predictable anthems and lazy action music (that generally conveyed the sound of low-budget, synthetic waste) was a quick fix for studios looking for a tested, safe, and less expensive sonic avenue for problematic productions such as The 6th Day.
