This was a fun movie and a new experience . I can always find ways to appreciate film-makers that attempt something new. Shearmur's score is wonderful and rousing, a bravado effort well suited to the story. I do not agree with the view that this is warmed over Williams or Horner. His score is uniquely his creation and stands on its own. Since The Count Of Monte Cristo I have hoped that he would be provided with a canvass large enough for him to demonstrate his skills. So it was with Sky Captain, and I am not disappointed. Well done!
