Plenty of nods to the first film, but whatever originality there was seemed very out of place. Like those brassy motifs that sounded like they were awkwardly ripped from a Back to the Future film. Or that opening sequence with the Star Wars instrumental vibe (not the main theme). Wouldn't be surprised if there was a lot of temp scoring going on.

The soundtrack is kinda on the same level as the predators
they also borrowed a lot of the music from the classic.

There were some similarities, yes. Plenty of the movie sounded like Predator (as did Predators), but the more "original" sections sounded very much out of place - as though they were influenced by Silvestri or Williams scores. Particularly the brassy motifs that generally aired during "triumphant" scenes, those sounded similar to Silvestris motifs in Back to the Future. Several parts also sounded similar to Williams when villains appear on screen (the original Star Wars trilogy.) Like I said, it could've been the fault of studio temp scoring, but to me it didn't quite fit.

if you have to borrow from the original do it like predator 2 that score is fantastic.

Both were composed by Alan Silvestri.

Predator 2's score is just the original but improved upon.

i know it's actually better than the original in my opinion.

The score was a big letdown for me - enjoyed some of the beats/music used in the TV spots/trailers more.

I don't think it'd sound right if we didn't have the Predator theme in there somewhere but I can't say too much stood out for me in terms of original pieces. I remember liking that cheesey heroes theme when McKenna makes the leap into the ship and I'll probably pick up the score, just to listen to the rest of it without all the dialogue and etc.

Yeah, the only bits I really remember were the recycled cues from the previous films.
