I\'d heard the same thing years ago about the score, but never was able to confirm it. I own the cd, but there is no mention of any orchestra on it. I\'d like to know what was used as well, if anyone here could answer.
Orchestras are almost never mentioned on Hollywood recordings, so nothing odd there. Without even having heard the score, I can\'t believe that it shouldn\'t have been recorded by a real orchestra just like all other Hollywood movies.

Simon, it only went direct to theaters in Europe. In the US it was an HBO or some other cable channel movie, so it wouldn\'t have surprised me for it to be sampler based. In fact, you can most definitely tell that some of the instruments are sampled or synthesized.
However the overall sound quality of the score indicates to me that there are at least some real instruments, esp the trumpets.
Regardless, it is a good score.
