Buy it... if you admire attempts by Hans Zimmer's team to explore ever-increasing discord and disillusionment in its experimentation with soulless synthetic processing to generate challenging soundscapes.

Avoid it... if you maintain that film music exists to connect emotionally with the heart even in the most frightening and suspenseful environments, because this franchise's music has degenerated into mere noise outside of its reprises of existing themes.

Zimmer
Inferno: (Hans Zimmer/Various) Professor Robert Langdon has some pretty damn poor luck when you think about it. Like Professor Indiana Jones, he shaves years off the end of his life chasing impossible conspiracies, but unlike Indy, he doesn't seem to have much fun along the way. In Inferno, Tom Hanks returns as Langdon, author Dan Brown's expert on religious history, and with the continued guidance of director Ron Howard, the protagonist is chased, abused, and betrayed at nearly every turn. The script of the 2016 film is convoluted and silly, the professor running about the Mediterranean searching for a hidden terrorist virus that will eradicate mankind. In yet another Langdon film, he's accompanied by a new piece of eye candy with brunette hair, but this time she strays towards the psycho bitch territory. Critics rolled their eyes impatiently while domestic audiences shrugged it off, though solid international returns for Inferno salvaged the production fiscally. Also resurrecting ghosts of the franchise's glory days is Hans Zimmer, armed this time with five or six choice ghostwriters from his Remote Control music production house. The year started relatively well for the veteran composer (the children's genre seems to bring out the only true romantic heart he once exhibited regularly in the early 1990's), but disillusion with or indifference to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and lesser projects lead directly into similar reactions to Inferno. Zimmer has rolled over the popularity of his 2000's and 2010's ensemble works into an apparent interest in not only perpetuating the failed methodology of group scoring but exploration of new instrumental avenues made possible by the expertise of his collaborators. By the time of Inferno, this experimentation pulled Zimmer back to some of his earliest days of synthetic programming, the composer seemingly content to resurrect the sounds of the 1980's in fresh ways.
