To start, although it is simple and somewhat underdeveloped, it is far from lacking in power. The theme clearly is an east meets west styled theme, combining the japanese style drums, like those played by the group Kodo, and a western orchestration (which is where I feel one could start calling the piece under-developed). As far as it being appropriate, I do agree, but not for the reasons sited earlier. The japanese by nature are a fatalistic people and the theme's somewhat aggresive nature illustrates their lack of fear in the face of death. This was also an act of war, which evil or not, requires an aggressive and emotional theme.
