As always with Prince-Blythewood, the use of music provides sharp enhancement, with a subtle score by Volker Bertelmann and Dustin O’Halloran that incorporates driving techno and percussion elements. – Hollywood Reporter
Academy Award®-nominated duo Volker Bertelmann and Dustin O’Halloran (Lion) team up once again to lend their film music talents this time to The Old Guard, Gina Prince-Bythewood’s summer action film for Netflix. Based on the graphic novel series by Greg Rucka, the film stars Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road, Atomic Blonde), Kiki Layne (Native Son, If Beale Street Could Talk) and Matthias Shoenaerts (Red Sparrow, The Danish Girl).
Lakeshore Records has released The Old Guard — Music From The Nettflix and Skydance Film, available now digitally worldwide. See album purchase links, soundtrack reviews and more below.
It’s moody and incorporates analog modular synthesizer while remaining true to the emotional roots of their work. It’s quite striking, and I can’t wait to hear more.” – Collider
The Old Guard doesn’t reach that film’s emotional depths but the confidence with modern music carries over, with excellently employed tracks by the likes of Frank Ocean and Marshmello nicely complimenting Volker Bertelmann and Dustin O’Halloran’s internationally tinged score. – Battleship Pretention
