It means that Zimmer, like Vangelis, has the capacity to write structurally simplistic music that is meant to overwhelm you with size rather than nuance... and, additionally, that such music makes for very enjoyable albums, but not necessarily a good fit within the parameters of the film itself.

I rate some of Vangelis' scores very highly because they make fantastic albums, but his big title scores don't usually work as well in the films themselves.
