This version should be removed from Prime Video

I finally saw the link to watch ‘Drive’ on Prime Video, eagerly clicked knowing when i saw it a few years ago, it was a brilliant movie, not just the cinematography, but because the musical score was the real reason this movie is so good. After 15 minutes of thinking something isn't quite right, i saw the Zane Lowe rescore from the title section and instantly turned it off. I was looking forward to pumping up the sound to this fantastic movie. The reason Drive is so good was because of the sounds, those retro synth lines, thumping bass lines, all synced to the beautiful direction. This movie only works with the original score, not this waste of time a DJ has decided to put in its place.

A reimagining? No, as others have stated, it ruins the movie, the flow, out of sync to the direction it's trying to follow. There is a reason the director chose the original music score, as it was intended to be viewed. There isn't a huge amount of dialogue in this movie, and it's the music chosen to go with the long driving and emotional scenes, to give just that, an emotion, a feeling towards the characters which is driven by the musical score.

This version throws all of that out of the window and feels disjointed. I just wish Amazon Prime gave us the original version and removed this from the stream. Anyone who wants to see this movie, please make sure it’s the original. Trust me, it will make a huge difference. It is at the end of the day, how it was intended to be viewed.

Abysmal. This is like swapping a Hans Zimmer score with ABBA. It's that bad.

It sickens me to think that there will be people who watch this instead of the original by mistake.

Terrible rescoring of the original!
Verified purchase
I just watched this on Prime without realising it was the Radio 1 rescore. I was so at a loss as to where the thumping synth of the 'Real Hero' track was, and the whole feel of the film was utterly different. I instantly started googling to see what had happened then realised I'd been watching this Zane Lowe fail.

What was the point?? The original had an ethereal synthwave vibe that jsut worked, this Radio 1 rescore was just weird.

Changes in music detrimental to the feel of the film.
Verified purchase
I'm not sure what tone they were going for when they chose this music to replace the original soundtrack, but it doesn't fit at all. In scenes where the original soundtrack was subtle and helped build tension and set the scene, the change in music ruins the original tone of the scene and distracts from what is happening.

Maybe don't change one of the best things about the original?
Verified purchase
It's incredible what changing a score can do, not only has it thrown off the original vibe that the director was going for, but it's changed the film much more for the worse. It's like if instead of having Tom Hanks, we use Kris, the dog from Beethoven, to play Forest Gump.

Worst. Idea. Ever. - This radio 1 Rescore, Not having kris play Forest Gump

Watch with the original score!
Verified purchase
The original score is brilliant and works perfectly with the film. The music just fits the look and feel - there is no need to change it.

I have no idea why Radio 1 though they should rescore it? Either they were arrogant enough to think they could do better or ignorant to how well the current score works with the film.

Anyway, don’t bother with this and watch the original again
