Namely, that all three of its major action cues, "Stonebanks Lives", "Infiltrating the Block" and "Armored Freaking Transport", are pretty much cobbled together from bits and pieces of action cues from the previous two scores. It's an incorrect thematic attribution or two away from being the equivalent of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. That kind of laziness is inexcusable, and two stars is the absolute most this score deserves.

However, it's far from the first under-three-star score in Tyler's career. You just haven't reviewed the right things...
