The Richard Gere/Bruce Willis bomb was destined for a quick exit from the big screen, which is too bad since this is an exemplary sampler of up-to-the-minute electronica. Norman Cook (ex-Housemartins/Beats International) reemerges here as Fatboy Slim, neatly sampling The Who's "I Can't Explain" for lead track "Going Out of My Head." And tracks by Prodigy, Bush, Moby, Lunatic Calm, and Black Grape's pro-pot anthem "Get Higher" (which craftily subverts a comment by Ronald Reagan) keep the pace jumping. --Jeff Bateman

Oh, There Is That Trailer Song!

"What led me to buy this CD is the song "Red Tape" by Agent Provocateur. I was originally looking for the Trailer song to the movie "Underworld", because I thought the song and trailer went really cool together. The next thing I know, "Underworld" does not have it under their soundtrack and I was given the hint that the movie "Jackal" had it. Why, I don't know, maybe some financal reasons with the production company. So, for those who were looking for the "Underworld" trailer song, it is here on the "Music from and Inspired by The Jackal" CD. The songs are pretty cool if you are into that rave music."
¡There is no real Jackal Original Score CD!

"This CD only had about two songs that were in the movie. That is why i had Amazon change this page from "The Jackal Soundtrack" by Carter Burwell to "Music from and Inspired by The Jackal" by various artists. There is no original score on the market. Varse Sarabande finally released a legit score of the Predator (1987) 16 years later. I hope a record label would do the same for The Jackal.Other than that fact, the collection has decent music in the tracks of Red Tape and Superpredator. Very high beat and rhythm in Red Tape. The composition of Superpredator on the movie title sequence was appropriate. It was a different theme to expect, but at that a sucessful one."
Excellent Music from an Excellent Movie

"The Jackal was one of the best action movies made this decade. The soundtrack is a perfect reminder of how intense and amazing the movie really is. The style of music is electronica mixed with techno. Almost the exact same style that made the Matrix so unforgetable. Fatboy Slim, Prodigy, Bush, Chemical Brothers, and many others create an awesome soundtrack. The two main songs on this CD are the two most memorable songs from the movie. "Superpredators" by Massive Attack and "Red Tape" by Agent Provocateur are songs that are very easy to play over and over again. If you liked the music for the Matrix, then you should enjoy the Jackal."
