The main review states that Revell's score for Open Water is drab, droning and uninteresting. The music does drone, yes, but it creates an atmosphere. A George Fentonesque score would not have worked. Overly produced orchestrations are not what every film needs. Some films work fine with it and some don't. Revell's score may not make for a soothing listening experience on it's own, but it doesn't mean that it is a bad score. It's just a bit different.
