I bought the soundtrack based on all the glowing reviews. While it has a few good moments of action writing, this is recycled Horner...a la Enemy at the Gate, 4 Feathers, Beautiful Mind, Windtalkers etc. only with chairs.

I've concluded that Horner has gone from being the John Williams of our generation to the John Barry---all open-ended texture and color, but not much in the way of strong melody. When was the last time you heard a Horner cue that ended with a bang?

Don't believe the 5-star hype above. It's 4 max...I'd give it a 3. Chances are I'll toss one of the action cues on a mix tape, and I'll never pop this in my CD player again. Just like Beautiful Mind, Enemy at the Gate, etc.

For the record, my top Horner classics: Star Trek II, Krull, American Tail, Land Before Time, Titanic, Legends of the Fall, Volunteers, The Dresser.
