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
