Title - 'Hitman' (La-La Land Records)
Artist - Geoff Zanelli
I've been a big 'Hitman' fan for years. I've played the games, have the scores by Jesper Kyd and couldn't wait to see the film. I was even more excited to hear that one of my favorite composers Geoff Zanelli was scoring the film. But, whereas I was pretty disappointed in the film itself the score was really well done.
Most of the tracks are taken from the game scores and turned into orchestral tracks but it's very well done and pleasing to listen to. I would not recommended this score to just anyone, but if you like Geoff Zanelli's music and are a fan of the 'Hitman' legacy you wont be disapointed.
Indeed, if anyone thinks this is lifted from Bourne is quite misguided. They should take a listen to Elfman's "Men In Black" and then reevaluate Mr. Powell's originality. I can't wait to see what this up and coming composer releases next! His Emmy was well deserved, and from the sound of this work it was only the first of many awards.
