Junkie XL was the mastermind behind this movie’s musical score.

Though before him, artists Hans Zimmer, John Powell and Marco Beltrami were all involved with the musical score at separate points. Junkie XL’s work was pretty remarkable, achieving multiple awards and nominations as well.

Despite not having a record-breaker box office income, the film made its way to fame. It’s a great combination of an all-time-classic like Mad Max, along with modern effects and technology that allowed the film to revive in the modern movie world. It personally deserves each one of the awards and nominations it received, as the great dedication put into the movie can be noticed during the whole movie.
