Joe Wright's impressive action thriller Hanna made its rounds this week here in local cinemas and guess what captivated the audience's attention span and left them breathless besides the authentic action choreography and the credible performance by Saoirse Ronan?
It's the original music featured in the film by The Chemical Brothers.
Moody, psychedelic, and heart-thumping. The Chemical Brothers managed to infuse so much mood and atmosphere within the feature film and made it so much more. There are tracks that remind one of childhood fairy tale memories that are slowly remixed into futuristic tempo and beats that befits the theme of Hanna.
The innocence begins with the very first track - "Hanna's Theme" and continues later in the form of "The Devil is in the Details", which happens to also reflect the quirky personality of one of the villains played by Tom Hollander. The whistle creates a motif that both Hanna and the audience can immediately identify with Hollander's character - The Big Bad Wolf hunting for Little Red Riding Hood.
Pumping up the volume and tempo during the film's action scenes are the fast-paced Electronica tracks such as my personal favourite "Bahnhof Rumble" that begins with a lurking sense of trouble before it explodes into the high-octane beats to get you into the mood for the exact same scene where Eric Bana's character confronts his assailants' ambush in an underground subway. "Container Park" is another similar track in feel, which you might like to hit play as you venture through the soundtrack listing.
