Marco Beltrami - The Wolverine (soundtrack)

(4.5 stars/5) 

Fantastic soundtrack with lots of Asian elements, like taiko drums and Japanese flute.

This soundtrack is eerie. The overall pacing is heterogeneous. There are slow tracks, like "A Walk In The Woods", "The Offer", "Arriving At The Temple", "The Snare" and others, and fast, syncopated tracks like "Logan's Run" (one of the longest tracks, 3:58), "Funeral Fight", "Silver Samurai" and others.

Marco Beltrami had previously worked with director James Mangold on "3:10 to Yuma". This is his big break into the X-Men/Wolverine franchise, and he does not disappoint.

With a long background in horror movies ("The Thing", "Scream", "Scream 2", "Scream 3", "Scre4m", "Mimic"), his Wolverine is a brooding superhero, hurt and wandering. His tortured mind is well reflected in this album; tracks like "The Wolverine" and "Sword of Vengeance" will make you shiver. You really can feel the character's interior conflict by means of music.

It's a soundtrack meant to be played by a big orchestra, with lots of strings, brass, and percussions. In Beltrami's words, "it's sort of a hybrid of electronic and acoustical score".
