AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack to Jackie Chan's Supercop holds all of the action of the movie and manages to spread across genres in the process but remain coherent. There are some serious oddities in the roll call for the album, but throughout the whole, the album manages to pull itself together. The album starts out with an odd techno version of Carl Douglas' martial arts movie standard "Kung Fu Fighting," performed by Tom Jones himself. Later, Warren G contributes a reworking of the Tina Turner classic "What's Love Got to Do With It." Following in the covers department, Devo puts in a cover of Trent Reznor's "Head Like a Hole," and Siobhan Lynch puts in an eerie, dark techno version of the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive." There are West Coast rap pieces from 2Pac as well as Tha Dogg Pound. Punk and ska are represented by songs from Rocket From the Crypt and No Doubt. Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell sounds oddly similar to Rob Zombie on "Caged in a Rage," and Joel McNeely finishes the album with the rock instrumental "Main Title From Supercop." While the usual course of a soundtrack involves a mixing of genres, which can often go horribly wrong when the mixing becomes incoherent, Supercop holds together remarkably well, if only because of the novel covers of various songs, and the reappearance of Devo
