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.
    Kevin M. W Super Reviewer

    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.
