Movie Info

The (mostly) true story of a Hollywood princess turned bounty hunter is told in this witty action-drama from director Tony Scott. Domino Harvey (Keira Knightley) was the daughter of famed actor Laurence Harvey (played by Jesse Pate) who passed on when Domino was only eight years old. Domino's mother, former fashion model Paulene Stone (played by Jacqueline Bisset and renamed (%Sophie Wynn) in the film), strove to give her daughter a comfortable life, but Domino was naturally rebellious, and

This is perhaps the most stylized, excessively garish piece of R-rated pop entertainment since Natural Born Killers, and you know what, I loved it.

While visual anarchy can be starling and bracing in chunks, Domino quickly settles into a one-tone-fits-all groove that's desperately wearying.

Scott never takes his finger off the remix button, meaning scenes play out in microflashes and dialogue is chopped and scratched like a beatmixing jock cutting loose on his first day at DJ school.

Despite a great deal of promise and a rousing (albeit too drawn out) finale, it is crippled by a lack of narrative focus and good characterization. But it could have been so much more, and that is truly the worst thing that could be said about it.

Sometimes sound and fury can be quite something in its own right--and for a true character (in every sense) like Domino, it's enough.

Os personagens são interessantes, o filme tem energia, mas o roteiro se perde a partir da metade da trama e os habituais excessos estilíticos de Scott mantém o espectador à distância.

This is a ridiculous movie. But is it fun-ridiculous, like Scarface? Might it go on to become a cult item? I suspect not.

Domino looks like what an Avid might vomit up after partially digesting the digitized footage. It's flashy as hell, but the amphetamine-fueled method is compensating for a distinct lack of substance.

When a film is more conducive to a scholarly dissection than a consumerist examination, the film is incredibly clever, pragmatic, or pretentious. In the case of Domino, it's all of the above.

Audience Reviews for Domino

Tony Scott brings the "flare" in Domino, but ends up burning it down instead of lighting it up.The story does have its points of interest thanks to some minor, although predictable, twists and turns. Unfortunately, the film is a bit elongated at 2 hours and the stylized nature of Tony Scott completely outshines anything this picture has going for it. The director's stamp seemingly ends up on nearly every shot; however, this stamp isn't enjoyable to look at. At some points, it's like watching a poorly edited music video.Even the action and violence gets clouded by the visual prowess of Scott. Once again, this is a shame since bounty hunting is an integral piece of the story.Keira Knightley is enjoyable to witness as this type of character. It's just too bad that none of the characters, even Knightley's, are likable. There are a number of recognizable faces amongst the cast, which end up as wasted talent.Regardless of the cast and story, Domino is film that divides the audience with its approach. It's a 50/50 chance whether or not this will end up as a recommendable movie.

If you're looking for one of Tony Scott's worst films, then your best bet is watching Domino, a fictionalized film about real life bounty hunter, Domino Harvey. The film had potential of being something cool, and hype. But Tony Scott's style of filmmaking is overused to the fullest here, and it's very irritating for the eyes. Starring Keira Knightley, Mickey Rourke and Edgar Ramirez, Domino is an over the top action film with headache inducing cinematography this film tried to be Natural Born Killer, but it failed. The performances on screen suffer because of a bad script, and it shows. The film is laced with bad dialogue, half assed action scenes that are very noisy, it feels almost as if Michael Bay directed this. Tony Scott has used to the same style of cinematography for plenty of his previous works and a bit for his most recent one, Unstoppable, but man did he go over board with Domino. The story is all over the place, and the film, though stylized, ends up being a failure due to a bad story, bad character development and over used cinematography that really does confuse the viewer. Domino could have been a terrific film, but every element in the film seems out of place, and just feels cheap. Domino is a bad stylish film that is somewhat entertaining, but very, easily forgettable. One of Tony Scott's worst.

I really enjoyed seeing Keira as a badass!! She did a great job. The story was ok but felt rushed at the end, more editing at the beginning would have give time to fully explore the wrap up at the end.
