I bought this one two days ago. I enjoyed it up to a point. The beginning is outstanding, a wonderful solo trumpet. But then, Silvestri uses it in several parts of the score, and it becomes very repetitive. Anyway, there are some really cool themes. My favourite is the one composed for the pistol itself. Very fluid and beautiful. You can hear it in all its splendor at the track "A Miracle". Great song by Nancy Sinatra, also. I didn't enjoyed the rest. In conclusion, there are only about ten or fifteen minutes of really good music. Of course, Silvestri's originality surprises again. But he becomes to repetitive. He did the same thing with "Van Helsing".
