Christian hasn't rated the score below average. He has rated it average, which s 3/5. First of all look at the rating before you post. A 3/5 is not something bad in this review site, everyone knows that. There are a lot of 3/5 ratings for quite good scores here. And 3/5 means "good" in Christian's words.

And Inception score does not deserve anything more than that for sure. It's functional, it works within the scenes, but isn't anything special neither among Zimmer scores nor film scores in general.

I think it's a fair rating.
