Buy it... only if you desire a faithful representation of the music you heard in the film, and even then, be prepared for a totally incoherent listening experience on either of the available albums.

Avoid it... if you expect any meaningful intelligence from Tom Holkenborg in the film's original score, a dull, uninspired merging of tired superhero atmosphere and intentionally insufferable retro synthetics.

EDITORIAL REVIEW
FILMTRACKS TRAFFIC RANK: #1,394
WRITTEN 3/21/16, REVISED 12/3/16
Deadpool: (Tom Holkenborg) The eighth entry in the seemingly endless parade of cinematic money-makers involving the "X-Men" concept is Deadpool, 2016's feature dedicated to a character that had been limited to just a cameo in one of the prior movies. The titular hero is a regular guy trying to marry the woman of his dreams but is stricken suddenly by cancer. Whereas a made-for-television version of that wholesome story would cure the protagonist through the discovery of Jesus Christ and an intervention from God, the 20th Century Fox "X-Men" variant instead cures him through disfiguring torture, senseless death, and shady mutant beings definitely "not of God." As the main character becomes "Deadpool" and dispatches villains without remorse (after all, they did make him one ugly dude), he integrates himself into the world of idiotic superhero humor and the long-standing tradition of not knowing exactly what all these mutant freaks are doing out there in the first place. The juvenile subject matter and extremely shallow plot didn't seem to bother anyone in the general public, however, Deadpool becoming a smash box office success and ensuring that more such exploits are witnessed for years, if not decades, to come. The various movies in the "X-Men" franchise have rarely exhibited any significant carry-over in intelligent musical design, and for his inaugural entry into the concept, Tom Holkenborg continues to muddy the waters with yet another interpretation of the realm. The Dutch electronica artist (otherwise known as Junkie XL) became one of the hottest composers in Hollywood after his collaborations with Harry Gregson-Williams and Hans Zimmer in the late 2000's and early 2010's put him squarely on studio short-lists. His solo scores have tended to be underdeveloped, not a surprising circumstance given his lack of formal training in the field, though film music collectors warmed to his efforts upon his better-conceived Mad Max: Fury Road.
