In the Transformers: The Last Knight review, I believe it would be a good idea to bring my music background into the picture. I must admit that I am a huge fan of all kinds of music from past and present and I have watched a lot of movies, including this one. So, I will try to share my views on the soundtrack in the review below.
As I had expected, the score is appropriate for the series. It is nothing extraordinary, but it matches the tone perfectly. Music is not an issue for me when it comes to this movie but it is important that the music suits the movie. The composers have managed to do that well in this Movie.
However, there are some songs that are more suitable for the other series of the series. The action in this movie is done in a different way than in previous movies, but one thing that remains consistent with the past is the theme song. It is a very great song that fits well with the movie.
The other music that I like is the action songs. Tracks like "Hot Shot" from the theme song, "Manhattan Project" from the I, Robot soundtrack and "Memories of You" from Autobot and Decepticon respectively. These songs bring a great feeling for the action sequences in the movie. Tracks like these also sing about friendship and courage and why we love this series so much.
One of the great songs that I did not expect to love as much as I do is the Beethoven's Choral Music Concerto. The story behind the tracks is that Transformers director Michael Bay put together the whole work by collecting together different works from different composers of the choral genre, which brings to mind a beautiful cathedral.
If you listen closely to the music, you can hear the echo of the original composer but without the expertise of the actual composer. In addition, the sounds of the composer is quite different from the original song. But, when listening to the track, the original song will come to mind again as the beautiful sound of Beethoven's Music emerges out.
There are a few moments where the music mixes up and fails to match the music needed for the scenes in the Transformers: The Last Knight. The track, "Only Time" from Autobot does not match well with the action in the scene where Bumblebee tries to rescue Optimus Prime. I would not recommend that this track be listened to on its own, but the scene where Starscream is trying to escape and the death of Optimus are some of the scenes that deserve the best music.
The Transformers: The Last Knight soundtrack is just what it should be - appropriate, not spectacular. This makes it a complete movie and brings a perfect ending to the trilogy.
