Title - ‘Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb’
Artist - Alan Silvestri
The fact that director Shawn Levy has once again brought back to the musical soundtrack fold his right-hand man, composer Alan Silvestri means more than words can say to this film. Even with Silvestri’s other work standing loud and proud on their own behalf - ’Death Becomes Her,’ ’Forrest Gump,’ ’What Lies Beneath,’ etc. - his work alongside Levy has always been of the highest, welcomed levels.
So, for the third time in this hilariously funny trilogy, Silvestri and Levy team up to bring us the final (one assumes) tale where late at night, under the shroud of London, England this time, a most wild, fun-filled and adventure-packed night is yet again about to be embarked upon.
Indeed, ‘Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb’ sees our hero Larry (Ben Stiller) spanning the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever!
Here on this playful 19-track soundtrack score, the diverse nature of Silvestri’s compositions fly along perfectly with one another. From the opening of ‘The Ahkmnerah Expedition’ to ‘The Grand Re-Opening,’ on through to mid-film tracks such as both ‘The Legend of The Tablet’ an d’The Escher Fight,’ on to the end-building ‘Seeing Your Boy Become A Man,’ the highly charged, deeply emotive ‘A Farewell Kiss,’ and then ‘Teddy’s Goodbye’ (a moment nobody knew was Robin Williams’ very own, personal “Goodbye” speech to the word, sadly), ‘Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb’ is one for all ages, all music lovers, and all fans of excellently composed soundtrack scores.
