How are the scores calculated and what does it mean?

Snowpiercer is an intense sci-if action film on a train in high speed that was released in South Korea last year. There was even a score released, although I don’t remember much of it. Now everyone get to join the train ride. Veteran composer Marco Beltrami will take us on a journey into the unknown. It is a weird journey to tell you the truth. It’s not the action fest the trailer promises, instead it’s a rather eventless ride which is very surprising.

This score feels terribly misplaced, but perhaps I’m very wrong here. What is indisputable is that this score really bores the hell out of me. Honestly, I didn’t remember it being this bad when I listened to it last year. Feels like another score entirely. When it’s good, it’s pretty great actually. ‘This Is The Beginning’ is a really good action cue and that 4 minutes it lasts feels like heaven compared to most of the score. The fact of the matter is that this score is depressing and now has made me depressed after I was expecting something very good.

19. This is the beginning
