Movie Info

Prisoner Roy Tucker (Gene Hackman) gets an offer that's too good to be true when a stranger called Tagge (Richard Widmark) visits him one day in jail, and says he can give Roy his freedom in exchange for agreeing to do an unnamed job down the line. Roy accepts and, after visiting his wife (Candice Bergen), is told the job is murdering someone. When Roy refuses to be a gun for hire, his wife is kidnapped, and Roy must find out who Tagge's mysterious employers are before it's too late.

Audience Reviews for The Domino Principle

  • Sep 12, 2012
    Late 70's conspiracy theorists unite as convict Hackman gets recruited to do a bit of dirty work for a clandestine organization with seemingly unlimited resources and funding. Not a bad vehicle to entertain but the execution leaves a lot to be desired, namely coherency. The actors do their part but the scenario is specious to say the least.

    One of several 70's conspiracy theory movies. Some slow moments with Candace Bergen. but an interesting performance with Mickey Rooney and a solid ending.
