Disappointed!   Wednesday, November 19, 2003 (1:32 a.m.) 

Am I the only one to be very disappointed with this soundtrack? After hearing the tremendous music from the film trailer I was hoping for more of the same, but Hans Zimmers efforts sound much like everything else and if I'm not mistaken the main theme is not a million miles away from the Pearl Harbour trailer music (Goliath)

I do not see any resemblence of "Goliath" to Last Samurai. It was composed by Jablonsky to resemble "Journey to the Line", which LS has a similar motiff in, but that's as far as it goes. Also, the use of Taiko in Last Samurai is actually more true to their intended use than what was used in the trailer, which was Zimmer's goal.

I think the music is great........as all the soundtracks by Hans Zimmer are.
Everybody has a different taste.

I don't hear it at all. The main heroic theme is more of mixture of the heroic theme in Pearl Harbor and the one in Tears of the Sun.
This score is a Zimmer only score and sounds terrific. No one else composed for this score. So I was happy to hear him score a movie alone again and damn did it turn out good.

Great heroics, good reflective moments, good action and most of all nice vesitility Hans Zimmer is one of the best out there and one of the most original.. You can never quite know how he will sound and he always brings something new to his scores. In this case the Japanese choir and of course intruments

I say, Way to go
