    Trance master Paul Oakenfold takes a stab at film composing with the soundtrack to this John Travolta cyber-espionage thriller. In creating music (and remixing other artists) for a film about computer hacking and international intrigue, Oakenfold keeps the tempo for SWORDFISH moving along at a fairly quick pace. The best remixes here include the slamming beats and undulating house vibe permeating Jan Johnston's "Unafraid" and the swooshing synths and jackhammer beats that find the British-born DJ exposing his inner Giorgio Moroder on Muse's "New Born." Elsewhere, the Kraftwerk samples found in Afrika Bambaataa's classic "Planet Rock" get beefed up and Oakenfold's dalliance with hip-hop extends to the Outkast-flavored remix of "Lapdance," featuring Nerd, Lee Harvey and Vita. Other highlights include the fusion of ambient swaths of sound and breakneck beats on the Planet Perfecto team-up "Get Out Of My Life Now" and the hard-driving Christopher Young collaboration "On Your Mind" featuring dialogue snippets of Travolta and Halle Berry from the film.
