3 stars? What else could JNH do to get more?

I just don't know what the reviewer was expecting to earn the extra 2 stars...free cake?
Seriously the string writing for this film is beautiful and it completely makes the film. Without the haunting themes that accompany the cinematography of Unbreakable it would completely diminish the movie and lose all impact all together.
I just think that the reviewer is imagining reading the score as he's listening and if there's not a complex enough texture or varied enough compositional techniques he'l just mark it as a 3.
Not every movie needs the complexity of a Mahler symphony to be truly great, and I think this score is a fine example of that.
