As a fan of James Horner, I was somewhat disappointed that he not only 'borrowed'(Stravinski said that good composers never borrow, they steal) from himself, but also from another composer in his most recent effort. This, however was not the first time he used this theme. It was a recurring motif back Apollo 13! (Dust off your old scores!!!). Then, it was still only a year after Williams scored Schindler's List, and no characters were Jewish. This score is somewhat disappointing, but the lush orchestrations, as always, make up for all this borrowing. It is, however, beginning to get a little tired.
