Buy it... if you don't care about how derivative a film score can as long as the new rendering is both enthusiastically dynamic and attractively diverse.

Avoid it... if you'd prefer not to make a long list of mental notes connecting a film score to the previous works of Jerry Goldsmith and others while you're trying to appreciate it on its own merits.

Badelt
Badelt
The Time Machine: (Klaus Badelt) An extremely unfaithful adaptation of H.G. Wells' classic tale, The Time Machine was a lavish production of such immense size that both DreamWorks Pictures and Warner Brothers Pictures combined to pay the bill. While receiving mixed critical comments, the film took advantage of a rather slack early spring season in 2002 to earn the studios decent box office returns. Still, the quality of the picture was suspect, with a largely nameless cast and extremely poorly developed script wasting what assets the film conveyed in its visual effects. One of its better attributes existed in its music by the rising Klaus Badelt. Over the previous four years, Badelt's name had been most commonly associated with the phrase, "additional music by." A close working partner of the internationally heralded composer Hans Zimmer, Badelt contributed music and electronic mixes to such well known Zimmer titles as Gladiator, Hannibal, and Pearl Harbor. When Zimmer could not contractually take credit for his work for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl in 2003, Badelt would take primary credit instead, though even this recognition didn't catapult him to consistent mainstream work. For the first time, The Time Machine offered Badelt an opportunity to score a major feature film in his own spotlight. The large production values of the film made the choice of Badelt a curious one, since the mainstream had been familiar with his work in only a supporting role. Additionally, much of Zimmer and Badelt's work together had been heavily synthesized, whereas a symphonic approach would be required for The Time Machine. To say that Badelt succeeded in creating an overachieving symphonic score for film of this level of disappointment is an understatement. The work is adventurous, melodic, and highly varied, with all the makings of an exciting action hit. The size and scope of the score, when considering the balanced employment of the symphony, his trademark electronics, and a futuristically ethnic chorus, is impressive, to say the least.
