Richard "Donnie Darko" Kelly's screenplay is a fantastical, incoherent fuzz while director Tony Scott tries and fails to recapture the energy and fun of his 1993 hit, True Romance.

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.

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

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

All-sizzle, no-substance.

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.

Ugly, in every sense of the word.

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

The longer Domino lasts the more annoying it becomes, everything coming to a head in a fetishistic orgy of bloody babes and bullets that's sure to go down as a Maxim reader's wet dream.

Only my personal vow never to walk out of a movie kept me in the theater until the end credits.

The film story becomes captive to its own hyperkineticism.
