Bandits [2001 Sony]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Barry Levinson's comedy about bungling bank robbers on a nationwide crime spree features a soundtrack specifically crafted to tie in to the kooky caper’s plot. Robert Plant & Jimmy Page's '90s remake of their former group's "Gallows Pole" serves as the background music for the jailbreak that opens the film, while Bob Dylan's infectious shuffle "Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum" perfectly describes the title characters played by Billy Bob Thornton and Bruce Willis. Enter Cate Blanchett's bored housewife, whose obsession with Welsh songbird Bonnie Tyler leads to the inclusion of her over-the-top '80s hits "Holding Out for a Hero" (also featured on the Footloose ...

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Barry Levinson's comedy about bungling bank robbers on a nationwide crime spree features a soundtrack specifically crafted to tie in to the kooky caper’s plot. Robert Plant & Jimmy Page's '90s remake of their former group's "Gallows Pole" serves as the background music for the jailbreak that opens the film, while Bob Dylan's infectious shuffle "Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum" perfectly describes the title characters played by Billy Bob Thornton and Bruce Willis. Enter Cate Blanchett's bored housewife, whose obsession with Welsh songbird Bonnie Tyler leads to the inclusion of her over-the-top '80s hits "Holding Out for a Hero" (also featured on the Footloose soundtrack) and "Total Eclipse of the Heart." In keeping with the story line, the Bill Withers/Grover Washington Jr. hit "Just the Two of Us" is a no-brainer for the love triangle that ensues between Blanchett, Willis, and Thornton. An added treat is composer Christopher Young's "Bandits Suite," which moves from ambient Middle Eastern-flavored mood music with a bluesy twist to hard-driving dance beats. With choice cuts from an unusual mix of artists, this collection is essential for fans of the film and a nice rock n’ soul sampler on its own.
