Buy it... only if you are capable of appreciating one-man orchestras, for Turbulence 2 is a rather mundane desktop computer score that barely lifts off with any interesting and fresh ideas for the genre.

Avoid it... if you have allergic reactions to those awful-sounding synthetic "orchestra hits" that software of the 1990's once produced.

Turbulence 2: Fear of Flying: (Don Davis) One of the lesser discussed drawbacks of the attacks on America on September 11th, 2001 was the fact that it ushered out the era of airplane hijacking movies. So bankable was this genre in the late 1990's that a mediocre film like 1997's Turbulence could actually be considered sequel material. When that push for more cash from the concept came in 1999, Trimark dumped the cast and storyline of the first film and replaced them with another plane load of people who not only are afraid to fly, but are once again in the ride of their lives. The plot is one that we've seen a thousand times: a commercial airliner filled with frightened flyers trying to make an (unfortunate) journey from Seattle to Los Angeles are hijacked by a group of non-English speaking, angry-faced Czechs who possess various deadly weapons of mass destruction and want to get revenge for... well, you get the idea. If everyone on board was naked and suffered from herpes outbreaks, then maybe this film would have been worth watching. Luckily for bored theatre goers, Turbulence 2: Fear of Flying was a straight-to-video venture, though it should be said that the movie's poster art (identical to that on the soundtrack cover) is delightfully politically incorrect in a post-9/11 world. One part of Turbulence that was thrown away was Shirley Walker's score and its associated themes and motifs. Sequel director David Mackay had worked with orchestrator-turned-composer Don Davis twice before on low budget affairs, and why Davis would accept Turbulence 2: Fear of Flying as an assignment, especially in light of his recent success with The Matrix, is baffling. The story and two-dimensional characters are stock, and as you might expect, the score is as well. Davis performed and arranged the entire score for Turbulence 2 on his desktop computer, which isn't necessarily an automatic negative. But just like a film with a plot and characters we don't care about, Davis' score makes use of all the same old synthetic, B-film action cliches that we expect to hear from the software available to less successful composers at the time.
