    In addition to the Bourne films, John Powell also composed such films as Face/Off, Antz, Chicken Run, Shrek, Rat Race, The Italian Job, Paycheck, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the Ice Age sequels, United 93, X-Men: The Last Stand, Happy Feet, Jumper, King Fu Panda, Hancock, and Bolt. You should be able to find the soundtracks for all of them at Amazon.com.

    As for composers with similar styles, some say the music of Hanz Zimmer and Harry Gregson-Williams have some similarities in their composition. Having heard them all, I have to say that there are definitely similarities, though I am by no means an expert. Of course, the reason for the similarities is probably because both Powell and Gregson-Williams were both trained by Zimmer. :)

    Hope this helps!
