AllMusic Review by

Sigh -- more of the same crap from Harry Gregson-Williams, who remains indistinguishable from his fellow Hans Zimmer clones at Media Ventures. Gregson-Williams doesn't compose melodies so much as he assembles testosterone-fueled sonic collages that recycle the same core elements over and over again, and with the exception of some hamfisted Hong Kong-inspired accents, a nod to co-star Chow Yun Fat, The Replacement Killers sounds exactly like every other action score from the mid- to late-'90s: a deluge of synthesized cellos, male chorus, and metallic rhythms that explode from the speakers with the force and consistency of projectile vomiting.
