Batman v Superman is receiving mixed reviews from audiences and critics alike. The film features a score by the famous Hans Zimmer and the up and coming Junkie XL, who recently composed the score for another comic book movie, Deadpool, and Mad Max: Fury Road which was nominated for 10 Oscars and ended up winning 6 Academy Awards.
How does the score fare though? Does it stand alone well or does it only mix with the movie? Here are my top five tracks from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
- This Is My World
- Is She With You?
- The Red Capes Are Coming
- Their War Here
- Do You Bleed
This score does not stand alone well, but thankfully it is incorporated into the movie decently providing a solid blockbuster comic book atmosphere.
The score is rather short, clocking in at an hour and eleven minutes. Here are how the remaining 8 tracks rank.
6. Beautiful Lie
7. Black and Blue
8. Day of the Dead
9. Problems Up Here
11. Men Are Still Good – The Batman Suite
12. New Rules
13. Must There Be a Superman? (This track is unbearable)
Whether you want to get hyped for the movie or relive some of the film’s memorable moments give a listen to the top five or continue with the rest (it won’t take long anyway). Sadly, I cannot recommend this Hans Zimmer collaboration for purchase, but it’s currently free to listen to on Spotify.
