More on the HANNA Soundtrack by The Chemical Brothers

More on the HANNA Soundtrack by The Chemical Brothers

Container Park by The Chemical Brothers by Hannamovie

As the release date for HANNA draweth nigh, we are getting treated to increasing glimpses of the original score from THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS.  While our cautionary stance on this "new movement" in film scoring is pretty well-known by now, I have to admit that what I'm hearing (please check the soundcloud clip above) seems like it will be an good fit for the film.  I'm, at the very least, intrigued by the film's trailer and the music that is married to these images definitely enhance that feeling.  

THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS style seems to fit the mysterious-action-personality of the film...perhaps better than some other recent attempts.  Still, we'll have to see just how well it works in the film.  Hopefully, it will be a better marriage than in The Social Network OR at least provide as entertaining a listen as Tron Legacy case the film, itself, is a letdown.  

There are others out there who certainly share this opinion.  Check out what Moviefone says,

"Trust us when we say they deliver something really special with this one, topping (in our opinion) the much-buzzed-about Daft Punk TRON: Legacy score... as well as Trent Reznor's [Oscar-winning] score for The Social Network. Oh yes, we just went there."
