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.

Kelly writes an often taut and fascinating look at bounty hunters gives us some truly likable characters I often found myself rooting for.

...a tribute to Domino Harvey that reduces her to a nerve-jangling, romanticized song lyric.

Domino is one insane gibbering beast, leagues more idiosyncratic than the average action flick.

a twisted head spinner of a biopic, where myth is always racing hot on the heels of a fugitive reality.

A well-paced action movie, if a little long, with an unusual feeling of surrealism behind the action.

No doubt an interesting story could be told about her life, but this standard-issue assault on the senses isn't 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.

All-sizzle, no-substance.

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

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.

With lashings of style and substance to match, Domino fascinates as a story of rebellion

A bit of a mess, but it's one hell of an entertaining mess.

It's an ambitious but emotionally vacuous exercise in style over substance.
