AllMusic Review by

Dynamic score for forgettable film, highlighted by percussive Latin rhythms and bombastic action cues. Rousing "Main Title" opens the CD on a strong, bold note. Throughout the score, Goldsmith plays with the orchestra, creating unusual percussion effects mixed with a strong South American sound. Occasional blasts of dissonant brass then burst out over mariachi-style rhythms and instrumentations. This plays as a sort of dark counterpoint to Elmer Bernstein's music for The Magnificent Seven. The score is presented twice on the CD: first, all surviving stereo cues, then the entire score in mono. Presentation includes Film Score Monthly's typically authoritative liner notes.
