All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Composer Hans Zimmer Gladiator, Thin Red Line, Batman Begins successfully fused his signature brand of overwrought but highly effective melodrama to the backbone of director Ron Howard's 2006 movie adaptation of Dan Brown's controversial religious thriller the Da Vinci Code.

    Powerful

    Hans Zimmer never ceases to amaze me. He is certainly my favorite soundtrack composer of all time. His scores always seem to contain so much emotion, and I love how he mixes electronic music with actual orchestras. Plus Joshua Bell's violin mastery in this is spectacular. I can only hope he returns to score The Lost Symbol once I'm sure that gets made into a movie.
