Review

A component score from James Newton Howard, this soundtrack seems a mess of melodies from hundreds of familiar movies. The theme for TekWar blends into the stormtrooper chase music from Star Wars. The haunting voices from Star Trek VI are one with the pipes of Willow. It is a good soundtrack that can find a use anywhere.
