Hans Zimmer’s “The Final Charge”


From Hans Zimmer’s score for The Last Samurai. This one is for fellow soundtrack geeks, or just those who appreciate good music in general. At 2:07, it explodes into one of the greatest pieces of battle music ever composed for a film.

  1. I used to be a soundtrack geek, I would borrow them from the library all the time and listen to them, download them onto my computer and do all kinds of things while listening to them. Has a nice sound to it, this one.

    1. Hans Zimmer has written some incredible film scores, and I usually like what I hear from him. If you enjoyed this one, you should look up the Gladiator soundtrack, also by Zimmer.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  2. Where does one even begin with Zimmer? Zimmer is to music what Nolan is to film; I think that what happens with his music is that, when paired with a good story, it becomes a narrative in and of itself, which is a feat that is almost impossible for us simple mortals to achieve.

    What are your favorite Zimmer soundtracks?

      That’s a great way of putting it, Santiago!

      Zimmer actually makes up a large portion of my soundtrack library, and I always look forward to when he releases new scores. My favorites would probably be

      The Dark Knight
      Gladiator
      Inception
      Sherlock Holmes
      The Last Samurai

      The score he wrote for Frost/Nixon is also phenomenal, though it differs somewhat from his usual style. Also, his song “Roll Tide” (from the Crimson Tide soundtrack) is absolutely a must-have for Zimmer fans!
