I agree that the review doesn't agree with the rating and I think 2/5 is ok for album release, but not overall. For me the most interesting stuff from the film is missing on the album so I'd rate the album 2/5 as well. But other than the review being a bit harsh, I think it only shows that Christian is expecting a lot from Zimmer, like many do (I really don't these days) is gets pissed every time Zimmer pulls another Zimmer. The review wouldn't be too harsh if it was composed by some unknown composer for sure. But it's a bit like that in a lot of review boards on different types of music. The review always will depend on the composers past work and expectations.
