this kind of has something do with Elfman well kind of you be the judge
I sure did have high hopes for the batman begins SCORE but sad to say i am let down. most of it is just quiet and slow. only like 2 action songs. The action songs are done by Hanz Zimmer and the rest are done by James N. Howard. From what i can tell is it has not direct theme like Elfman's score. No theme to say "Batman is here!" I have heard about 40 min worth of the score already.
