When I first heard that they were going to make a new Superman film, my first thought was "I hope they don't screw it up!" I am a huge fan of not only Superman, who is my favorite Superhero, but also of the original Christopher Reeves Superman, which I feel is the BEST interpretation of that character ever done. Additionally I am a RABID fan of the John Williams score and continue listening to it regularly to this day as well as being a filmscore afficionado (see my "screen name"!). Well, as soon as I saw the film "Superman Returns" I was THRILLED! Director Bryan Singer and company, who are also huge fans of the original film, PURPOSELY went out of their way to maintain the same feeling and flavor of that film in "Superman Returns", from the actor who portrays Superman/Clark Kent to AMAZING effect, even looking, sounding and moving like Christopher Reeves, to using an amazingly realistic digital "ghost" of the late Marlon Brando's "Jor-El" character! So how could ANYONE not understand WHY Director Singer and Composer John Ottman would utilize the incredible John Williams themes he wrote for the original films?! I read a review by an Amazon.com reviewer named Elisabeth Vincentelli which bashes Ottman for this choice. Well, Ms. Vincentelli CLEARLY doesn't understand either the purpose of the Director and Composer to stay true to the feeling of the original film or for that matter that the "Superman March" theme composed by John Williams has become and IS part of the Superman character now! It is as much a part of the character as the red and yellow "S" on the chest of his suit! In other words, I couldn't disagree with the sentiment expressed by Ms. Vincentelli MORE! John Ottman does an AMAZING job utilizing the John Williams themes while incorporating his own compositions into the score! Ottman knows just WHERE to use those themes and there are places where his love of them really comes through, such as the choral voices which accentuate the dramatic flourishes of the "Superman March" in some areas of the score, such as in the track "Saving The World", which gives me chills of excitement! His own original compositions are melodic and beautiful and powerful, especially the "secondary" theme he wrote for the Superman character which is best utilized in the tracks "So Long Superman" and "Little Secrets/Power of the Sun". Ottman has a complete grasp of Williams' score and no one could have done a better job in incorporating it into his own music for "Superman Returns". This was a HIGHLY underrated film which was INFINITELY better than it was given credit for and so is its score! As I said, I am a HUGE Superman fan, a huge fan of the Williams Superman theme, it IS part of the character of Superman and I think that anyone making a Superman film in the future would be FOOLS if they REMOVED that theme from the Superman character in their film. In fact, I wouldn't want to SEE a Superman film which DIDN'T have it in its score and at the time of this writing there IS a new Superman film in the works...we will see! As a last bit of advice, beware of ANYONE who claims to be an "expert" music critic, there's NO SUCH THING!

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Stunning original score for the hotly anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures epic feature .lm Superman Returns Score is done by John Ottman, whose credits include, Kiss Bang Bang, X2 and The Usual Suspects.

Amazon.com

John Williams's theme for 1978's Superman remains one of the most famous of the '70s, so it's both obvious and a little weird that it would feature so prominently in the score for Superman Returns: Why would director Bryan Singer and composer John Ottman so willfully compare themselves to the earlier movie? Not only does a turbocharged version of Williams's theme ("Main Titles") open the album, but the "Behind the Scenes: Superman Returns Score" featurette that's part of the CD's bonus enhanced section is all about the orchestra performing the 1978 theme. Ottman's own work thus has to unfold in the shadow projected by Williams, which is a bit unfair since, while the new score isn't revolutionary, it delivers all the pomp, triumph, and vaguely atmospheric choirs that are now de rigueur in Hollywood action films. Ottman, of course, is used to dealing with superheroes (he wrote the scores for X2: X-Men United and Fantastic Four ), but this time around he's had to reflect the essentially noble nature of his main character, and so he's come up with themes that reveal even more pomp, pathos, and atmospheric choirs than before. It's not what you'd call subtle, but it does the job. --Elisabeth Vincentelli
