Coriolanus Soundtrack Review: This is a review of the film score Coriolanus by Ilan Eshkeri.

“The only reason to get this score is if you are a collector.”

Coriolanus is modern William Shakespeare adaption, a thriller about Coriolanus, the hero of rome, a great soldier and a man of inflexible self-belief that despises the people. His extreme views ignite a mass riot. He is ultimately banished from Rome so he offers his serviced to his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius. The film is directed by Ralph Fiennes and starring Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler and Brian Cox. The score is composed by Ilan Eshkeri.

I’m not sure what was the purpose of this score, but the banging in cues like ‘A Place Calling Itself Rome’, ‘Citizen’s March’ and ‘You Fragments’ is about the best this score has to offer unfortunately becuase it’s all downhill from there.

This score is filled with “sound effect” tracks like ‘Souls of Geese’, ‘We Hate Alike’ and ‘Deeds of Coriolanus’ and they are absolutely awful, they give me nothing whatsoever which comes a huge disappointment to me. A big part of this score is dedicated to nothing but faint sounds and boring repititive clangs.


I hated this score and it has to go down as one of the worst scores I have ever heard. The bangs and clangs does nothing and the sound effect cues are something anyone could have made without much effort. The only reason to get this score is if you are a collector. Even if you are a Ilan Eshkeri fan, you couldn’t possibly find anything good here.


Buy the score at Amazon or iTunes.
