The Last Stand Soundtrack Review: This is a review of the film score The Last Stand by Mowg.
Hey everybody, Arnie’s back! The Last Stand is a 2013 action film starring the big guy and quite surprisingly, it is composed by Mowg. I am not familiar with Mowg, but they have composed for some movies before. This is an all out action affair and it works. ‘Cortez Extraction’ is a rather messy action cue, but still one of the best on the score. There’s a melody here, and in an action cue it’s ok, nothing more.
There’s a couple of cues that stood out to me and that was ‘The Last Stand’ which is sort of an indie action western jazzy bluesy kind of cue. Yeah I don’t know exactly what it is, but it’s a cool cue, mixing a lot of genres. At the end you have ‘Mowg’s Symphony’ which mixes a bit of an older style scoring with the new kind of action that Mowg used in ‘Cortez Extraction’ and others.
The Last Stand as an action score is very generic for the most part and the action doesn’t really jump out at you.
GEEK SCORE: 65.4
