Well, the religion part sounded forced. It was full of half baked ideas and the plot just got nowhere new. Ir may have used some more brainstorming.
As for the score, I liked the bits where Nicolas Cage is sorting the numbers and the finale. A bit different from Beltrami's normal action material, which makes its appearance in the subway wreckage. Though nothing else is noteworthy.
