Mostly true...

But I liked the theme a lot. It struck me in theaters, particularly over the Opening Titles set against the stark landscape of Antarctica, and I think it holds up well on album. Yes, as Clemmensen points out, cliches abound in this score, but these are good-sounding cliches. I agree with the 3-star rating; if the rest of the score had been as promising as the main titles I might prefer 4 stars. The somber, patriotic (and corny) theme perfectly accentuates this movie's theme of humanity's mortality, and it also effectively, if unimaginatively, underscores the fairly ludicrous but visually fascinating film.
