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.

We know she's got a bad attitude and mad combat skills, but where did she get them?

It's a goofy and bloody and assaultive all-star extravaganza and an absurd burlesque of the life of movie-star daughter/model-turned-bounty hunter Domino Harvey.

It works better as a music video than a film. Pass the aspirin.

I'm sure the story of bounty-hunter Domino Harvey would make for compelling cinema if only Tony Scott had decided to film it without the masturbatory excesses that are evident in Domino.

Anything good about this movie is drowned in the sea of overkill by director Tony Scott.

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.

Only afterward, as you amble out of the theater in a dizzy whir do you start to realize you haven't been entertained but assaulted.

For masochists who always wondered what Sgt. Hartman's threat to "gouge out your eyeballs and skull-**** you" in Full Metal Jacket might have felt like.

A whole lotta sound and fury signifying not only nothing ... but a very raucous, insistent, and gratingly redundant nothing.

The problem with Scott's film and Keira Knightley's performance as the bounty hunter is its bored delirium, a daze of scattershot ennui that prioritizes hipster carnage and flashy cuts over intelligible storytelling.

Crass yet colorful exploitation of the sad, strange life of an English beauty-turned-bounty hunter.

If it were a song, Domino would be a track from Poison remixed by a guy who is simultaneously snorting coke and jackhammering a sidewalk.

It's like someone smashed open a piņata full of film-school devices and Tony Scott grabbed them all. Oliver Stone, on his best day, couldn't make a movie this incoherent.

Domino is far from dull. But it doesn't convince.

How else could a nightmare of sight and sound like Domino be explained? Tony Scott has lost his storytelling abilities, and now he wants to punish us all.
