4.0 out of 5 stars Nice music for a nice movie
Nice score that fits well with a nice and action-packed movie that I too recommend. Maybe not the best Eshkeri's work, though, but a good one indeed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very well done, but flawed
[...]Whilst written and orchestrated in a similar idiom to "Back to Gaya" and "Stardust" (even copying its "Coronation" theme - surely through the director's case of temp-track love), it unfortunately lacks the magic of either score. All the right ingredients are here; and Eshkeri's writing and orchestrating is as meticulous as ever. I think it uses a smaller orchestra,...

2.0 out of 5 stars Very well done, but flawed, 22 Dec 2013
[...]Whilst written and orchestrated in a similar idiom to "Back to Gaya" and "Stardust" (even copying its "Coronation" theme - surely through the director's case of temp-track love), it unfortunately lacks the magic of either score. All the right ingredients are here; and Eshkeri's writing and orchestrating is as meticulous as ever. I think it uses a smaller orchestra, but it is all incredibly well done, nicely performed and technically can't be faulted. However, the music moves at a snail's pace and there appears to be a fair amount of mickey-mousing going on, which forces the music to continuously stop and start. Eshkeri clearly tried to do this subtlely as possible, but it nonetheless prevents the score from building any real momentum. Even away from the picture you can just hear the score moving from one hit-point to the next. It works very hard to do all that it needs to do and you can empathetically feel Eshkeri doing his best for what he's been given; but without the accompanying images it is difficult to fully engage with the music - and as a fan of Eshkeri it pains me to say this. There is nothing inherently wrong with the music and it has plenty of good moments, but as a whole it is sadly lacking sparks. With the film itself receiving damning reviews, maybe the score's lack of enthusiam can be forgiven.[...]
