    Fabulous Score by Horner!!!!

    The Legend of Zorro's score is absolutely beautiful. After sitting in the theater for five minutes, I realized that James Horner had once again written an incredible music score that fits perfectly with the movie. My only complaint was that it sounded almost exactly like the original Mask of Zorro score and he still used variations on the hit single, "I Want to Spend my Lifetime Loving You" throughout the whole movie. Regardless of these minor faults, the score is a must-have!
