Buy it... if you typically collect robust orchestral action scores for the animated genre, and are friendly to the genre's styles from Alan Silvestri and John Debney.

Avoid it... if formulaic animation scores, no matter how strong in performance, all sound the same to you.

Silvestri
Silvestri
The Wild: (Alan Silvestri) Bring in the lawyers! Disney has had The Wild in the pipeline for almost a decade, and all the studio has to show for it now is the hard-learned lesson that if you don't get your project out in a timely manner, another studio will steal your idea and make $400 million worldwide off of your it first. Such is the case with the evil twins, The Wild and Madagascar, with Dreamworks Animation head Jeffrey Katzenberg apparently taking the idea for The Wild with him when he left Disney and beat his former employer to the punch in getting the idea to screen. Whether lawyers can have an impact on the situation remains to be seen, though the similarities between the two films is so striking that even a toddler could recognize The Wild as a remake. In both stories, a group of hip, semi-domesticated animals led by a lion escapes from a New York City zoo and travels back to Africa in an improbable voyage, where one of them is worshipped as a god, evil animal rulers put them in peril, and important life lessons are learned. And yet, parents keep paying to take their children to see these films, and the amazing part of this equation is that The Wild will probably earn a decent take despite receiving even worse reviews from critics than Madagascar and poor word of mouth from movie-goers tired of the lack of originality in the animated genre. There are two aspects of The Wild that simply beat Madagascar in every regard, and one is in the quality of the digital animation.
