At first listen I would've completely agreed w/ Christian Clemmensen's judgement of the score. But after multiple listens, I've stumbled over some worthy Goldsmithian action cues. Take the unique use of the piano and xylophone dispersed throughout the album. I agree, a good ***. Not a classic, but good. Also, I feel that there must be a reason in the film for the lack of depth in the character track (track 3), which was also overlooked by CC.
