I've got to say that the 160 BPM cue is probably one of the best, if not the best cue I've heard this year. It covers so many different layers and sounds and can be both beautiful yet full of action at the same time. A truly unique listening experience, even if you've got issues with Mr. Zimmer's over-reliance on synths.
