Bridge cue starts around 0:36



Yup, that just about nails it.

The "Countdown to detonation" cue starts at 4:40. Nobody else writes action music as consistently fresh and vibrant as this. Nobody.

maybe they thought BRIDGE CHASE and ICE CHASE were quite similar for short album and just picked one and left out the other...

Very likely. And of the two, Ice Chase is more interesting

Interesting cue you pointed out, but it sounds so much like Executive Decision!

One can only hope that Varese will pull their finger out someday.

The one thing that no has mentioned here, and this is for those who criticize the repetitive action style of the rising fifths brass lines from executive decision and the four note motif he used, Goldsmith was the replacement composer when James Newton Howard backed out. So for what it is worth, Goldsmith did a fantastic job despite a last minute effort. He pulled off an even more valant effort on Air Force One, having only 2 weeks before nationwide theatrical release to spot, composer and record. So get over the reuse of his staple material. If james horner was able to get away with it on every score he did, give Goldsmith a break when he does it as a result of having little time to be crestive.

How last minute did it end up being, though? I remember hearing that JNH had a schedule conflict or something, but I thought that was early enough that he was never announced as the composer.

EDIT: I see now that JNH was on the "Upcoming Movies" composer list for it, back when Chain Reaction was known by an even worse title, Dead Drop. It switched to Goldsmith starting with the "Uhh Winter 1996" issue, so it's not like Goldsmith joined at the last minute like he did on Air Force One.

The weakest Goldsmith action score remains superior (and more interesting) to much of the modern action scoring in the last 10 years by the RC crew.

Looks like a new release of Chain Reaction is coming (per d2 Mastering's Client page: http://d2mastering.com/).

This is probably a Varese in perpetuity release, so I'm guessing this'll be in the next club batch?

As great as the bridge chase and museum cues are, I've always been partial to the escape from the exploding lab cue at the films beginning. A more propulsive, kick ass cue I have never heard!

Looks like it was removed. One of the worst things about internet culture: it's hard to be surprised by anything.

I'm only vaguely familiar with the score, but from what I've heard ("Ice Chase", "Bridge Chase"), I'd be cool with a Deluxe Edition.

It would be great news if this is coming. This is one of the "Big 4" that we need fully expanded by Varese from the great Jerry Goldsmith. Fingers crossed. Once Varese do these I promise never to bother them again. smile

Yes! The warehouse explosion is awesome, I imagine that's what his Judge Dredd would have sounded like.

We got a similar tip on this site when Predator 2 was in the pipeline, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

The album really didn't do this score justice - except for Ice Chase. I love that one and listen to it almost daily. That's some Total Recall- level writing there.

The Bridge chase will be the big standout, but there's a moment in the Museum Chase, right as Keanu jumps onto the wing of a plane exhibit and Goldsmith blasts these staccato horns that are so damn fast. I love that bit. He was really trying hard to inject energy into these mostly limp sequences.
Can't wait.
