No one is arguing that POTC is original; but neither is TR2. It sounds like a retread of The Long Kiss Goodnight and Mission: Impossible (Rejected Score) with bits and pieces of The Mummy Returns thrown in for the sake of having an orchestra. The theme is nothing special when compared to everything else Silvestri has composed.

The last time I tried to listen to TR2, I fell asleep during the middle (which has never happened before). There is just too much underscore that rambles on and on (I have never liked Silvestri's use of electronics; too 1980s-ish, like Delta Force). That is something that POTC has over TR2 - there are moments throughout the score (on a continual basis) that keep it from becoming boring.
