agreed!

Lot's of noise and sound wise it's very much like Arnold rather than Williams (tho parts reminded me of Debney's Cutthroat Island, but then again, that score reminded everyone of Arnold anyway). But it's just that: sound layers without direction, no real stand-out themes.

The art of writing memorizeble themes may be vanishing in these more recent times, compared to the older scores from Wiliams and a number of other composers. I think it'd be good for a site like this to start giving 2 star ratings, one for composition, one for orchestrating. Theme wise I doubt I'd give this one 3 stars, but sound wise I think 5 stars is justified. This would bring the average back to 4 stars, which is -I think- a good ranking for this one..
