This score by Clint Eastwood works beautifully in the movie. Eastwood simply writes a score to satisfy the scenes of intensity and dramatic effect. However, many poeple listening to the score only on cd will find it quite boring. I would advise anybody who wants this soundtrack to see the movie first and then make a decison on purchasing the soundtrack. At least it's a good soundtrack to listen to while napping. Personally, just listening to this score on cd does not bother me.
