The film clip from Rambo Last Blood at the end of this video has Roque Banos' In the Heart of the Sea tracked in. Is it so in the film? Or did they accidentally showed a extract from the temp-tracked version?
Damn... Fingers rapping on table action rhythm. Trumpet blasts that almost sound synthesised. That infernal drumming that one has heard in any number of action trailers and film over and over the past decade... Uninspiring. Ugly. I REALLY miss Jerry! Between this and the recent Dark Crystal score, my faith in modern scoring is dipping. It’s just scoring to picture in a calculated mechanical manner with no sense of the score having a life of its own too. No spirit or real emotional depth and connection. :/
One thing is if he had kept it to the film itself. But when Tyler's irritating action riffs blast over the montage sequence of the previous RAMBO films, my heart sank. Why on earth didn't they use "It's a Long Road" for this, or some variation thereof?
While I did enjoy the film, it's pretty clear to me that Adrian Grünberg (the director) is no Stallone in terms of ambition. Stallone's own RAMBO from 2008 was a far more visionary work, including his notes to Tyler during the scoring process.
