My first close encounter with Hans Zimmer was when I went to the The Rock. A classic in action movies, where the end is known in the first minutes. What impressed me was not the acting of Nicholas Cage or Ed Harris...it was the soundtrack. Hans Zimmer effectively combines electronical music and music, played by the orchestra. I think Mission : Impossible 2 is much alike The Rock. Sure there may the some parts where you think it would be better to tape just silence...but hey! The soundtrack still rocks. I think it is refreshing to hear from time to time an electric guitar or some heavy drums in the score and not just those squeeking violins. O.K...there might be some similarity to The Gladiator soundtrack but HEY! The Gladiator score rocks big time!! So it is fair enought to say: Keep it up, Hans! And do not let those boring soundtracks from Geogre Williams ( Star Wars suXX!!! ) and James Horner ( Your music should sink with the ship! ) distract you.
That is all...at least for now. And if you have any doubts about Zimmers perfection...play "The gladiator" soundtrack, track 3 "The battle"...or "Mission :Impossible 2" track Bio-techno or Injection...or The Rock, track 1 Hummel gets the rockets...what do you think about Zimmer now?
To conclude, I think that in my opinion, Hans is one of the greatest composers of the twenty-first century. Amen.
