I did like aspects of the Dunkirk score - some scenes worked very well... but I think you missed the reviewers point yourself. I don't really see this is an "innovative" score. It's the same treatment Zimmer has applied to most of his scores in recent years. It was his usual ambient droning/pulsing score that is currently very fashionable but there is little innovation in applying that to a WW2 setting imho. You don't have to make the score heroic either - the reviewer stated himself how someone like Goldenthal was doing far superior stuff that served a similar purpose 20 years ago.
