Melancholy and emotional

  • Mar 9, 2010
Rating:
+5
I haven't seen "The Pacific" miniseries yet, so I don't know how well the soundtrack fits the film. However, standing alone, The Pacific soundtrack is pretty good. It is pretty low key, and often very melancholy. There's certainly nothing like the heart-pounding battle tracks in Hans Zimmer's Gladiator or the emotional highs of Pearl Harbor. Nonetheless, The Pacific seems well suited for a historical drama about war. Even without having seen the series, the music's sadness strikes me as very appropriate given the horrors of the Pacific front. If I were to rate music on its ability to emotional move me, The Pacific definitely gets 5 stars. I only wish the song about the atomic bomb ("New Kind of Bomb") had been more memorable or distinct from the rest of the track. It seems like if any track should stand out, that would be it.
