Excellent score   Saturday, August 19, 2006 (9:31 a.m.) 

It is because the outstanding brass section,the virtouse guitar play,the excellent percussion undercurrent.Parts of the score contain outstanding string play as well.The breath-takingly beautiful main theme is worth the price of the album alone.The main theme reflects to the losses of the individual men with its beautiful choir work with nice brass section,and also reflects to the anger,vindictiveness felt by the men,and dire consequences and the violence which are caused by the losses.There are some relaxing and a lot of action music as well.Highly recommended to purchase for those people who like music from
action movies.

I agree with this comment. The brass play alone takes the listener through various emotional rides to say the least. The use of the trombone, baritone and french horn along with the violin and viola are spectaular. When the guitar breaks in with its seeming solo, you are giving the emotional ride of your life while the movie transitions into one its most hurtful and decisive scenes. The use of the percussion section moves the scenes along and ties them together.

The score of this movie is one that gives the movie its meaning. The score will come to mind when you see or experience certain things that will push those same emotions that appeared in the movie to the forefront of your life.
By far a good score.
