Red Dawn [Score]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Shelved in 2010 after a plague of financial troubles befell MGM, director Dan Bradley's remake of 1984's Red Dawn finally saw the light of day in 2012. Released at the height of the Cold War, the original featured a lot of Russian baddies, all of whom have been replaced here with the North Koreans.

Djawadi, a Hans Zimmer protégé, has an innate talent for programming percussion, and he can effortlessly go from distant and thunderous to downright pugilistic in a matter of seconds, but the overall lack of any memorable sort of goose bump-inducing theme keeps Red Dawn from ever landing a haymaker.
