A film doesn't need music through every minute of it's run time, it's placed according to where the director and composer feel it aids the film.

I think you should watch it again Saquist. This time with your eyes shut so you are not dazzled by all the pretty colors and just listen

I think action scenes need music.

Kevin seems to know what I'm talking about.
I should Know...I can repeat the closing moments of the film verbatim.
It's dead silence as those fighters are being killed off.

I think background music, if not done right, can detract from an action scene. The booms, crashes, and other sounds are more important sometimes.
