"This film is a freight train. It starts and it doesn’t let go. But if the score sounds like that to you, then I think
that comes from the fact that I’ve done four movies with the director John Moore, including “Flight of the
Phoenix,” “The Omen” and “Max Payne” with Buck. So I sort of get him as person. We also had very little
time to score this movie, about six weeks, which made us write it like a freight train as well. Another difference
is that this soundtrack identifies with the past Michael Kamen “Die Hard” scores, while functioning as its
own thing as well. Buck created a lot of the rhythmic settings for the orchestra to play with. Also because
the nature of the quick turn around, Marcus Trump and Brandon Roberts really helped with the programming
as well. They were still filming as we were working on it, doing additional scenes even as the sessions
were going on. Drastic new cuts were arriving. While there are 80 minutes of score in the movie,
we actually ended up writing over two hours of music before it was all approved because of the new cuts.
It was a whirlwind of a score."
