Gettysburg was better

No way is this score worthy of five stars! I didn't like the way it was used in the film, and it's nowhere near as memorable or effective as the score for Gettysburg. I missed the way that Gettysburg sounded. That score was original and it effectively brought me back to the Civil War era. This score is a major disappointment. Nothing about it stands out...there's bombast and patriotism but it's all of a generic war movie quality. When I saw the film, it made key moments laughable because they just didn't warrant that much fuss. Some people might be impressed by the big orchestra, but give me the smaller, warmer, and more harrowing Gettysburg any day.
