Soundtrack reviews:

"... Goldenthal's highly-impressive score (probably alongside Don Davis's The Matrix Reloaded as the best for an action blockbuster this summer). In many ways this is the quintessential Goldenthal score, containing pretty much all of the elements that appeal to his fans.

"...what is remarkable is how fresh Goldenthal really manages to keep everything. His orchestration has a lot to do with it because he always does something interesting ... he always sticks to his guns, writes his way, goes against the grain and actually manages to stand out in a field that is becoming ever more homogeneous. SWAT is like an oasis in a barren wasteland of summer scores." moviewave.net
