It's probably not a great film score, but North's effort here contains some interesting and colorful orchestral music with enough originality to make many classical purists do a double take. Most good film scores have moments of "unpleasantness" that enhance a suspenseful scene (Goldenthal’s, for example) ...this one just contains more than the usual amount. Like other lousy fantasy movies of the 80s (Krull, even Conan the Barbarian) you sometimes have to forget the movie itself and let the music tell the story.
