Hey everyone,

in the review The Last Samurai is compared a lot to Gladiator, and the opinion in the review is that Samurai is much better than GLadiator...

I don't agree with that:
-altough the action music in Gladiator is a bit rough, after listening a couple of times, I really like these secenses.
-the themes in Gladiator are much stronger and are played much more heroic. Maybe that comes that Gladiator is much more a Hero-story than Samurai, but we are talking about the soundtrack...
-Samurai is a bit soft and slow at the beginning of the soundtrack, while Gladiator's first real actionmusic is already the thirf track of the CD...

What are your opinions?
