Addendum to Dundee
Just to add that the new soundtrack is ludicrous. That uneven tone I talked about is due in good part to the soundtrack. Part militaristic, The Great Escape joviality, part Once Upon a Time in the West melodrama, part rote studio emotional tugging. In other words, the soundtrack might be largely possible for the feeling that the film is tugging one in a certain direction while never fully exploring the aim directed at. What a little tease.
