Buy it... only if you heard something that really impressed you in the context of the film, because on its score-only album, Trevor Rabin's music is sufficient and occasionally intriguing in its orchestral techniques but ultimately a boring overall experience.

Avoid it... if you get the feeling that Samuel L. Jackson's persona and the ridiculous plot warranted a score with far more contemporary, bad-ass attitude than the relatively safe suspense and horror methods applied instead.

Snakes on a Plane: (Trevor Rabin) One of the most madly hyped films of the 2000's prior to its release due to tremendous internet buzz early in 2006, Snakes on a Plane surprisingly revealed itself to be a box office disappoint for New Line Cinema. The ridiculous nature of the concept and the intensity of lead star Samuel L. Jackson had caused internet forums to go insane with anticipation for the movie, and the studio went back and re-shot several scenes and solicited songs from amateur bands online in response. The film was intentionally made edgier in its revisions to meet perceived audience demand, including the addition of the infamous Jackson line, "Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!" That line has been parodied ever since, carrying what little lasting strength the pop culture flash in a pan initially caused. Jackson plays an FBI agent escorting a witness from Hawaii to Los Angeles, but all hell breaks loose when a crate of dangerous snakes is released onboard (by the henchmen of the crime syndicate leader whom the witness will testify against) with the idea of killing the flight's occupants and bringing it down. Deaths typical to slasher movies are seen in succession, starting with people having sex in a lavatory, and eventually the captain and co-pilot are killed and the remaining passengers, led by Jackson's agent, have to contend with the menace of the snakes and landing the plane. The movie received unexpectedly positive critical reviews, but the internet buzz didn't amount to enough viewership to make Snakes on a Plane the memorable phenomenon everyone thought it would be. Along for the ride is composer Trevor Rabin, whose career has a long history of action music, including plenty in the air, but comparatively limited on straight horror. The director, David R. Ellis, has never maintained a collaboration with any composer (using John Ottman and Brian Tyler, among others), and Rabin seemed like an odd fit for the assignment at the time.
