AllMusic Review by

Over the course of its three discs, Film Themes takes listeners on three different thematic journeys through some classic film scores. On the first disc, things get clandestine with a collection of iconic James Bond themes. Looking further back, the second disc explores the world of Westerns with themes from classics like A Fistful of Dollars and The Magnificent Seven. The third disc takes a more refined approach with a collection of film themes that draw from the world of classical music, including A Clockwork Orange's use of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. With such a variety of focuses, the set manages to be both eclectic and deep, providing listeners with three distinct styles to explore and enjoy.
