Overview

Composer Marco Beltrami has been the go-to guy for the horror/suspense genre since Guillermo del Toro's Mimic in 1997, so it's no surprise that he sounds so comfortable on his first foray into sci-fi with Alex Proyas' I, Robot. Similar to his score for del Toro's Hellboy, Beltrami utilizes bombast like it's emanating from the baton itself. His tendency to over-utilize heavy percussion sometimes gets in the way of the melody, but this is a Will Smith summer action movie so it's fitting -- thankfully, there is no lame Smith-jam over the credits. I, Robot isn't del Toro's best work -- that would be his excellent minimalist score for the Owen Wilson serial killer drama The Minus Man -- but it complements the material nicely, resulting in a serviceable but eventually forgettable entry into the realm of blockbuster fly-by's.

Marco Beltrami (T3, Hellboy) has delivered the generic summer-blockbuster score - y'know, bombastic to the brink of annihalation of your eardrums, catchy (if you're lucky) but instantly forgettable. That sums up this score pretty well. Good but not as good as it could've been. To his credit though, Beltrami had only 17 days to come up with this score so, going by that, it is quite an impressive piece. But only judging by that.
