I actually enjoyed the second Expendables score more than the first, but was likewise greatly disappointed that so much of the Expendables 3 score was just rehashed music from the first two. Even the villain theme in Expendables 3 is the same as 2. Makes me wonder how that happened. Did the director request it? Did Tyler just want to hear what the same queues sounded like when performed by a different orchestra? DISAPPOINTED!

At well, at least we got Tyler's outstanding TMNT score this summer!
