don't you think it is awfully similiar to Horner's score? I mean, it is intentional to use celtic themes, considering the location of the story, and of course horner took traditional themes as well for his scottish score, but you do get the feeling it is too similiar to be highly original music. Nonetheless, the score was very good, though you need a good cinema surround to capture the high use of bass. and of course a good home stereo for dvd viewing.
I'd give the score 4 stars also.
