October 17, 2005
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.

[Scott] directs this 'sort of true' crime story about English schoolgirl-turned-bounty hunter Domino Harvey like a rabid dog with a rag doll in its gnashers.
October 14, 2005
It's like a ferret on crystal meth that belatedly discovers ecstasy, and it's a tiresome trip either way.
October 14, 2005
Domino is far from dull. But it doesn't convince.
October 14, 2005
Buried deep within the psychedelic sludge that is Domino, there may be a story about a model turned bounty hunter. Good luck trying to find it.
October 14, 2005
A messy, fictionalized saga of femme-fatale bounty-hunter Domino Harvey.
October 14, 2005
If for some reason you're curious about the sad life of model-turned- bounty hunter Domino Harvey, don't bother with Tony Scott's dismal Domino.
October 14, 2005
Domino is less a movie than a hyperkinetic slide show -- presented during a nuclear attack.
October 14, 2005
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.
October 14, 2005
It's sad to say that an arbitrary appearance by Jerry Springer is the picture's closest brush with inspiration.
October 14, 2005
Domino is amusingly decadent for a while but eventually wears you out. Two eyeballs are not enough to see it with.
October 14, 2005
The picture is an exercise in exploitation joi de vivre, and your enjoyment of it will depend on your tolerance for shameless, reckless, unredemptive violence with relatively little artistic or spiritual value.
October 14, 2005
It airbrushes and glorifies the short, angry life of its subject in ways that are practically indecent.
October 14, 2005
Domino is far from good, but it's mildly entertaining if you lower your standards appropriately.
October 14, 2005
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.
October 14, 2005
Scott means for his entertainment package to be hip, hysterical fun. But his stylistic embellishments and indiscriminate appetite for sensation crowds his title character right out of the film.
October 14, 2005
Domino, director Tony Scott's hyperactive, roll-in-the-mud, blow-stuff-up and jiggle the cameras every which way extravaganza, is one of the most awesomely awful films ever made.
October 14, 2005
If you are capable of sifting through this cut-up collage of freeze-frames, flashbacks, slo-mo shootouts, druggy smutty vignettes and scruffy scenarios, you could find a few morsels of exhilaration.
October 14, 2005
The movie has roughly the same effect on the nervous system as listening to a box of marbles being dumped onto a linoleum floor.
October 14, 2005
[Director Tony Scott's] pornographic lust for bloodletting, gunplay, and out-of-control camerawork far exceeds his abilities to tell a story.
