Re: Hans Zimmer Scoring The Man of Steel - Part 2
I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of the samples, but the action music leaves a lot to be desired. It seems exceedingly loud just for the sake of being loud. There also doesn't appear to be much in the way themes, save for a few scant hints like the piano bit in track three. But I was surprised by some of it like the violin solo in "Krypton's Last" and the ambient, alien quality to it makes sense with the way the film is focusing on the kryptonian stuff.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
