I agree. I loved the movie and there were moments that the score seemed almost to work, but in the end it was nothing compared to any of Horner's efforts for Ron Howard. The music for Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind and The Missing work so much better with the visuals of Ron Howard. I don't know why James Horner was not available to work on this film, but I hope that Mr. Howard understands who is the best composer to compliment his work. I went into the movie theater thinking I would hear something favorable to A Beautiful Mind or even James Newton Howard's The Village, but what I heard was a weak version of Road to Perdition.
