Dragonheart Vengeance Music Reviews:

“Mark McKenzie is one of the best film music composers of his generation…This is a composer whose music overflows with beauty and passion, gorgeous themes and strong emotion, sparkling orchestrations and masterful technical content…He should have been locked down on two or three major studio features every year for the last two decades, across multiple genres. He should have been nominated for at least a couple of Oscars.” Jonathan Broxton Movie Music UK

“I am no fan of synth scores, but this is different, it has a celestial and other-worldly aura, the composer fashioning heart breaking and highly affecting tone poems which he combines with exciting and at times relentlessly full on action cues…DRAGONHEART VENGEANCE is a masterfully written score.” John Mansell: Movie Music International
