Comments about the soundtrack for Man on Fire (Harry Gregson-Williams)

I just have to say that I think this review is quite inaccurate. First of all, referring to Man on Fire as having a Media Ventures style is naive. Harry Gregson-Williams started with Zimmer, but has done very well breaking away. He now has his own studio separate from MV. The style of music we heard from him in The Rock and Armageddon is nothing like what he composed for Spy Game and now Man on Fire for Tony Scott. Scott's films require the electronic feel, but I did not feel that the score was as random as this review suggests. Denzel Washington's character goes through an emotional journey - from love to revenge - and thus requires various music styles when the film goes between scenes with Pita and scenes of him blowing people up. In addition, this review did not discuss the music correctly either. Not even close to all of the orchestral music in the score was synthetic.
