It is a score that is overflowing with a powerful and lush musical persona. There is a grandiose feel to it in places almost epic in fact, but through the proud thematic material there are glimpses of intimacy, poignancy and a sense of the personal and melancholy…Recommended.
…a wonderful surprise whenever I come across a contemporary film score that is not afraid to engage in emotion, features beautiful and lyrical melodies, and which uses a symphony orchestra to the fullest extent… his music is so good, a winning combination of warmth and heart and compositional musical excellence”
“The Last Warrior: Root of Evil is a superb, rich, thematically dense, action packed score for orchestra and chorus, which demands repeated listens…” – Jon Broxton

I could go on and on about this score – the interplay between themes, the outstanding use of all the different part of the orchestra, the different types of voices and choirs – but I think you get my point. This is one of the most enjoyable and entertaining fantasy scores of the year
Full of stride, without fear, positive and optimistic; the music has moments when it just takes over and inspires me, make me want to rise from my chair and help the characters. I am just delighted at the end of this album as the standalone listening experience is about as enjoyable and rewarding as it gets for this genre. Do not miss this one.
Driving strings set the pace and rounded sounding brass keep the momentum, whilst percussion adds a pounding and rhythmic underscore to the proceedings…as the grand and driving theme melts away into a more dramatic, apprehensive and mystical sounding piece…returning to a rousing and martial sounding musical persona, which includes flyaway sounding woods that are wispy and filled with energy and give the impression of speed as the theme thunders along…Although I have not seen the movie in its full version, I feel I have via listening to George Kallis’s highly thematic, romantic and commanding score.
