Zimmer used the same chords and almost the same rhythm as Gustav Holst's "Mars" from his "The Planets" Suite. I'm not sure what track it is, but if you are familiar with the piece, you will immediatly recognize it. I think that is a bit low, composers should think up their own stuff. Seems to me he wanted to throw something famous in and mayhbe get a bit of credit for it. You can also hear stuff from "The Rock" but I won't complain there, for he wrote the music for that. Overall, Zimmer is an exceptional composer, but I think we could do without the "Mars" addition.
