It sometimes seems Randy Edelman would score a film for nothing more than a sack of peanuts and a pat on the head -- who else would agree to collaborate with Jean-Claude Van Damme on the martial-arts lunkhead's directorial debut, the kickboxing opus The Quest? What, Edelman didn't have his neighbors' home movies to score instead? Anyway, The Quest is pretty much what you'd expect -- an energetic but unchallenging action entry with elements of Far Eastern influences, its combination of strings, brass and electronics sounds pretty much exactly like every other score the composer's ever written, most closely recalling the earlier Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. Yawn.
