This particular original soundtrack is harder to look at compared to many others. What's indisputable is that there's some great material here that advantageously utilizes its running time well enough to avoid dragging out. However, part of this has to do with the entire package feeling short-lived and otherwise streamlined. Some of the more powerful and memorable parts from the film seem to be mysteriously missing-in-action while many of the pieces that did make it don't flow quite as smoothly as hoped. But for all of its shortcomings, this soundtrack shows its strengths when evaluated on its own and not as a means to accompany a film. This might seem to make it a purpose-defeater, but if looked on its own, individual terms more merit and enjoyment will be found.
