Steve's Review of Domino

12 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


I just got back from a free preview screening of Tony Scott's "Domino," and I am just irritated, to say the least. I only had modest expectations for the film (I liked the previews, and acknowledged the negative reviews without letting them sway my opinion), but this one was just a stinker - plain and simple.

The plot was completely incoherent, the entire movie was obnoxiously noisy (don't even get me started on the myriad rap "songs" throughout), and the editing was [i]so[/i] erratic that it actually made the movie [i]boring[/i]! I know that sounds strange, but when there are roughly six cuts for every simple action on-screen, it gets very tiresome very quickly. Throw in a large supporting cast of annoying characters (with Christopher Walken giving the worst performance of his career), and you've got one of the worst movies of the year.
