Yes, it has a very large share of its dark themes. Although the flying theme is incrediably memorable, it's actually not as dominating as one would think when listening to the score alone. The first track alone starts out with a workout for the speakers, and the theme for the doctors/searchers/police is more often used than the flying theme throughout the movie. By any means, go see the movie and hear the score in its context.
