S.W.A.T. is the soundtrack score for the 2003 action movie S.W.A.T., based on the 1970s TV series of the same name, composed by Elliot Goldenthal.

The score[edit]

It is generally viewed[who?] as being another surprise project for Goldenthal, being that he usually gravitates towards more "intellectual" and "arthouse" type movies. Although he has done a few "commercial" action movie type scores in the past, the decision to score S.W.A.T. was nevertheless interesting,[6][7][8] and Goldenthal has developed a reputation for choosing unlikely projects, if anything, for the sheer fun of it.[7] In choosing to compose the score for S.W.A.T., Goldenthal -- some[who?] have said -- had played the "Media Ventures" (now known as Remote Control Productions) [9][10] composers at their own game and won; creating an original, intense, yet complex and diverse score.[8]
