Well, i do love this score. I don't saw the movie 'cause it doesn't really interested me, so i can't tell if the music fit or not. Otherwise, i'm an old fan of Zimmer, beginning with Backdraft, ten years ago... and i can tell that i love this score because of its difference, its soft tender like (do you say that? i must confess i'm not anglophone). Well, this linguistic point lightened, i don't really understand those who wants some gladiator-peacemaker-crimson tide-like stuff in each score Zimmer wrotes. I like also those scores (i'm a fan i told you) but before all considerations i love originality and beauty... and this score have both. Hans Zimmer himself manages to create an style of his own plenty of beauty and originality that we recoignise... so please, don't shoot him off each time he don't "fit" with your expectations... I'm not musician, but working myself in Arts, i know that it doesn't only depends on the artist's instinct or will... there're marketing men, the director, the movie itself... that sometimes commands this or that. don't you think? bye.
