" I quite enjoyed the decentness of it "
Written by Thomas Glorieux
- Review of
the regular release
Untraceable is an effective and decent thriller, so naturally a decent thriller score needed to be on board. Enter Christopher Young to deliver that. The man could probably write this in his sleep, and still several of his latest scores seemed to miss something. A theme usually helps and that's evident here. It's not an award winning theme, but it gets the job done. It sets the mood and it occasionally binds the action / suspense together ("Session Locked" and "Incinerated in Cement"). Everything is in fact quite tonal, and Young doesn't lose the pedals or the pace. In fact I quite liked the score, it turned out to be much more interesting than I imagined. Even the atonal yet extremely rhythmic cue "Blinking the Code" is quite effective and potent. Overall a good thriller score and one the fans will appreciate.
Decent and effective main theme.
Thriller music is acceptable, potent at times and always centered around the theme (which is always good).
Of course it ain't high art, you got to accept the fact it's been heard before.
