There's a dark rumble to Massive Attack's instrumental score for this Luc Besson-produced martial arts movie, arranged by Robert Del Naja and Neil Davidge in 21 miniature sequences. Many of these are a minute or so long, so it's hard to cite them as anything special, and the nagging feeling persists that there's been an element of smoke and mirrors about this outfit's fashionable misery since their heyday. Those pieces that are allowed time to breathe suggest greater depths, like "One Thought At A Time", which clocks in at a whopping four minutes plus.

There’s a dark rumble to Massive Attack’s instrumental score for this Luc Besson-produced martial arts movie, arranged by Robert Del Naja and Neil Davidge in 21 miniature sequences. Many of these are a minute or so long, so it’s hard to cite them as anything special, and the nagging feeling persists that there’s been an element of smoke and mirrors about this outfit’s fashionable misery since their heyday. Those pieces that are allowed time to breathe suggest greater depths, like “One Thought At A Time”, which clocks in at a whopping four minutes plus. Obsessives will find much meaning herein: it’s all a bit studio-noodly and so-what to a non-believer layman.
