Dragonheart remains Randy Edelman's most memorable and fully realized film score, achieving a unique fusion of epic fantasy and light comedy that fully emphasizes the composer's strengths. Edelman's main theme, "World of the Heart," will be instantly familiar to anyone who's seen a movie trailer in the last decade of so -- a soaring melody that's equal parts grandeur and adventure, it's been recycled umpteen times over by films with none of the sword-and-sorcery elements of Dragonheart, but its all-purpose romanticism is undeniably potent. Between the widescreen themes that bookend the score, however, Edelman returns to the intimate character-driven themes that are his bread and butter, capturing an energy and whimsy that perfectly complement the onscreen action. ~ Jason Ankeny
