That's it, basically. The pictures are nice, although their structure is a bit baffling. I have however, seldom hated a movie's score as I did this one, mostly because of course the music plays a major part here. This is a score for people who think that Hans Zimmer is altogether too subtle and subdued. If you like the emotional point of images being driven home with a sledgehammer, this is definitely the score for you. I was this close to getting out my mp3-player's headphones to muffle the sound. The movie has roughly three themes (with roughly three chords each), and the most annoying part is that you won't be able to get them out of your head once you have escaped the cinema. Again, the images are nice (although I don't know why Berlin gets about 90 seconds and the Alps about 10 minutes of screen time), but the music is dreadful, uninspired, annoying, just terrible.
