3.0 out of 5 stars
All religious politics about the movie aside..., July 18 2004
Personally, I think the best song out of all of them was used for the movie trailer because it had a similar emotional impact the way the Gladiator soundtrack did. I have yet to see the movie myself, but what attracted me the most was the music. After listening to it, sometimes it's a hit and miss to the ears. Previous reviews I've read either rave about it, or think that it's a piece of recycled crap. It's neither in my opinion. The tracks each have their own distinct method which I'm sure was meant to enhance the scenes of the movie instead of overshadow them. Some songs I liked, others not so much (because they lacked impact). I'd highly suggest listening to the entire track in bits and pieces before buying it. Personally, I don't think it's as bad of a soundtrack as certain people are reviewing it to be. However, it's not the greatest. It has yet to compare to Gladiator's phenomenal soundtrack.
