I'm not a Horner fan but I've listened to his score and Yared's. In comparing the two, yes, Yared's has thematic development and doesn't "rip-off" themes as much as Horner does, BUT. Why is everyone making such a big deal out of it. The score was written for the movie. The movie wasn't written for the score. Saying this, I'd say in the short amount of time Horner had to score it, he did his job well to provide the "emotional" music needed for the film. I really liked the movie Troy, and sure the music could've been better but it works. The filmmakers have a right to choose what music they want to express in the film, even if its not that great.
