Was he on severe pain medication when he wrote those first two paragraphs?

I don't know about that, but he does deliver an over harsh review. 1 star out of 5 is ridiculous for a score that, whilst could have been so much more, is destinctly average. I think the reviewer is providing the emotion the score lacks!

This is definitely a harsh review! The score might not be extremely memorable in the end, but itís definitely affective for a suspense movie and a very interesting listen. The combination of electronics with orchestra is very successful in parts, it reminds me of the great score "Paycheck" be John Powell, while the brass remind me of Broughtonís sound. Ok the sound might be a bit cliched for this kind of movies, but there is also depth in the compositions and yes, themes do exist if this is your thing. I just donít get the review. This is a great performance by the small orchestra with excellent, tasteful electronics that donít get in the way of the orchestra when they are both used. I mean just listen to the first couple of minutes in track 11, "Maryland". How much better can an action track get? How better blend of electronics and orchestra can you get. This score deserves a better review.
