Again I feel it necessary to call you out the unnecessary criticisms you aim at Hans Zimmer and MV/RC. Though it is appropriate to compare scores with industry trends, it's enough for you to mention it once in passing rather than so often that it practically becomes the thesis of your review. Let me count them up: "synthetically derivative scores of hyperactive trash", "the industry barrels further into the realm of sample-oriented, hyperactive, synthetic action styles", "Had one of the plethora of Zimmer clones from Remote Control handled The Expendables, a basically effective but highly derivative two-star score would undoubtedly have resulted", "the ensemble mess otherwise known as The Rock", "...most composers of his generation would be happy to serve up two-star trash to earn a paycheck for this kind of movie".
That's five distinct jabs at HZ/MV/RC and industry trends in general. One would certainly have sufficed.
Other than that, professional-sounding review as always.
