Not sure what review you're reading but he gave it a 2/5 which is obviously below average so I didn't need to be corrected on that fact. Whether it deserves more than that or not is really not my point. My point is that opinions on this score really are not as one-sided as people on this website think. It is being dismissed as a score that 'everyone thinks is below average' which is at polar opposites to the truth. Movie reviewers and mainstream movie-goers have been very positive the music, as have several other soundtrack reviewers.

Also, as others have mentioned, this review is very poor. Not only has Christian completely missed several key aspects of the score he has also completely lost objectivity. It is less like an "inception soundtrack review" and more like an essay entitled "why I don't like Hans Zimmer and his music"
