Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (ENGLISH)

Under Siege 2: Dark Territory ( Basil Poledouris). Casey Ryback returns to action to save the Pentagon from its own inventions, in this case the Gracer One, an armed satellite capable of destroying any target on earth... or in air.

Poledouris is an excellent songwriter of action, and Under Siege 2 is an example of this. His score for this film stands out for its perfect use of metals for the theme of the hero, the permanent dynamism that keeps the action constant, in addition to the very particular use of the synthesizers that the composer makes in his soundtracks and that, in this one, intensifies for the most technological and spatial sequences.

Main Titles: Dark Territory puts the main theme on the table: action, percussion box and metal fanfare. That's what the movie is about. Maybe one of the best in Seagal's filmography. Casey's Family breaks the action to put the necessary counterpoint, smooth and clean, where appears the only weak point of Ryback, and reflected in his niece, from whom takes over after the recent death of his brother. The Train Departs imitates perfectly the train's start, an incredibly well-achieved effect with the orchestra. And with Out the Window / Bye Bye Thriller the action begins, Seagal going up and down a train that does not slow down. The Gates of Hell is intriguing, Hostage Car Shootout is the ultimate expression of the action of the soundtrack and Kitchen Fight is powerful at the beginning and magical in its development. Meanwhile, the two diegetic tracks completely break the style of the film, showing a traditional French style using the accordion as the main instrument. The song After The Train Is Gone, composed and performed by Seagal himself among others, puts a good end to the film.

The original 1995 edition only included 27 minutes of music. Varèse remakes his work and in 2017 launches the deluxe edition with some decent 74 minutes of action and enjoyment. The edition includes a booklet with notes about the film and the music of Poledouris.

Alerta máxima 2 (ESPAÑOL)

Alerta máxima 2 ( Basil Poledouris). Casey Ryback regresa a la acción para salvar al Pentágono de sus propios inventos, en este caso del Gracer Uno, un satélite armado capaz de destruir cualquier objetivo en tierra… o en aire.

Poledouris es un excelente compositor de acción, y Alerta Máxima 2 es un ejemplo de ello. Su partitura para esta película destaca por su perfecto uso de los metales para el tema del héroe, el dinamismo permanente que mantiene la acción constante, además del muy particular uso de los sintetizadores que el compositor hace en sus bandas sonoras y que en ésta se intensifica para las secuencias más tecnológicas y espaciales.

Main Titles: Dark Territory pone el tema principal sobre la mesa: acción, caja de percusión y fanfarrias metálicas. De eso va la película. Quizás una de las mejores de Seagal. Casey's Family rompe la acción para poner el necesario contrapunto, suave y limpio, donde aparece el único punto débil de Ryback, y reflejada en su sobrina, de quién se hace cargo tras la reciente muerte de su hermano. The Train Departs imita a la perfección el arranque del tren, un efecto increíblemente bien conseguido con la orquesta. Y con Out the Window / Bye Bye Thriller empieza la acción, Seagal subiendo y bajando por un tren que no reduce la marcha. The Gates of Hell es intrigante, Hostage Car Shootout es la expresión máxima de la acción de la banda sonora y Kitchen Fight es potente en su inicio y mágica en su desarrollo. Mientras, las dos pistas diegéticas rompen totalmente con el estilo de la película, mostrando un estilo tradicional francés utilizando el acordeón como instrumento principal. La canción After The Train Is Gone, compuesta e interpretada por el propio Seagal entre otros, pone un buen final a la película.

La edición original de 1995 apenas incluía 27 minutos de música. Varèse rehace su trabajo y en 2017 lanza la edición deluxe con unos ya decentes 74 minutos de acción y disfrute. La edición incluye un libreto con notas sobre la película y la música de Poledouris.
