The soundtrack received mostly positive responses from music critics, with many praising The Chemical Brothers for having produced solid background music. However a few critics have cited a lack of experimentation as one of the flaws.[9][10] According to Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album holds a score of 65, indicating "generally favorable reviews", based on seven reviews all compiled from critics.[2] Chad Grischow of IGN reserved high praise for the soundtrack, feeling that the "duo nail the mix of violence and innocence".[6]
