Soundtrack Review: Gemini Man (2019)

The soundtrack for Gemini Man is now available digitally on Paramount Music, and a CD release is forthcoming from La-La Land Records. Gemini Man is an innovative action-thriller starring Will Smith as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin, who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative that seemingly can predict his every move. The soundtrack features a robustly textured original score by Grammy-winning composer Lorne Balfe (Mission: Impossible – Fallout, 12 Strong).

“It was an absolute pleasure getting to collaborate with the masterful dream team – director Ang Lee and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Ang and I spent 4 days in the studio exploring themes with soloists playing live! He wanted a theme that portrayed the delicate relationship between Henry and Junior, so I did a theme that intertwines both melodically, as their bond grows stronger. Hope you all enjoy the thrill, as we unfold the mask behind Gemini Man.”

My feelings about this soundtrack are decidedly mixed. While Gemini Man isn’t the worst soundtrack I’ve ever heard, it’s also not the best from this year either. Don’t get me wrong, there are some good action melodies in this soundtrack, and I really like how Balfe uses the strings to create driving rhythms. No, the problem I have with the soundtrack for Gemini Man is that so much of it sounds the same. There are minor variations sure, but by and large it’s all the same and that bothers me. When I listen to a soundtrack, I like hearing a wide range of sounds and melodies. And I just don’t hear that in the music for Gemini Man.

The soundtrack for Gemini Man is adequate and gets the job done, but it’s nothing that will blow you away. Let me know what you think about Gemini Man and its soundtrack in the comments below and have a great day!
