Album: Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Artist: Patrick Doyle
Description: There’s a primal backing to this soundtrack, one that utilizes percussion and African-inspired voices on top of the full orchestra, that make this a great soundtrack for writing action. There’s plenty of building action as well, so it is not just a non-stop blockbuster soundtrack. Patrick Doyle is an acclaimed composer and his trademarks are not missed here (so you could call it an intelligently-written action score). If you are writing the final showdown between your protagonist and his nemesis, this is the soundtrack you want.
