Blame Dan Walin for Michael Giacchino's recent scores being bland. Hes the recording guy for it. He dropped Steve Smith after Mercinaries. You could tell because Steve Smith initially mixed Mercinaries but Dan Walin came in after.
I thought that Alexander Courage's theme was a bit inappropriate for this flick. It was to tongue and cheek thought the movie is I would have loved Goldsmith's theme instead.
