When I had first heard that they were making a new film version of "The Punisher", I was excited - I don't follow comics these days, but I always liked the idea of the Punisher character, so I figured the movie would could be pretty da*n cool. And then, I heard that some Italian composer named Carlo Siliotto was going to be doing the score, which I found a bit odd, but at the same time, I was excited - I never had heard of him before, but I liked the idea of someone that Hollywood has never really seen before. And Mr. Siliotto did not disappoint. At first, I had been expecting the movie to be a rough, almost over-the-top, no- holds-barred action flick. Instead, what I ended up seeing was a more thoughtful, devious, and even emotional revenge film. And the score had the same effect - the theme is simple, but used brilliantly throughout the score in some fantastic variations. There isn't really any action music on this, which might be surprising to some, but there is plenty of intensity here. Just overall, a beautiful score, and massively underappreciated. The album is wrapped up with a rather superfluous song, "Jealous One", which was featured for all of three seconds in the film, and probably would have been a lot more comfortable on the song album. The one thing that I thought was missing from this CD was the song "In Time", written and performed by Mark Collie, who played the character Harry Heck in the movie. It's a very cool, slick song and is on the song album (go figure).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
