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.
