4.0 out of 5 stars This movie is dirty and shockly good July 2 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It's over the top; sure. This is a film in which arms are literally being thrown around, subtitles are correcting themselves, but I loved every minute of it. Kiera Knightley gives a fierce performance. She shows the right amount of anger and dedication in this performance. Mickey Rourke follows up his great performance in 'Sin City' with another tough-guy performance (Good to see him). Edgar Ramirez really doesn't do anything except speak Spanish every once in a while and stare at Kiera. Delroy Lindoi gives a good supporting performance. Mo'Nique was herself, although she did surprise me on one particular scene. Lucy Liu has great chemistry with Kiera Knightley in her scenes with her. Christopher Walken owns his roles as usual and an unusual assortment of actors including some Beverly Hills 90210 stars manage to squeeze themselves into this production.

The problem that I had with this movie is that it concentrates on the different things that they do, instead of the character of Domino. Some of the dialog in this film was also stupid {"The rich, the poor, and everyone in between."--uuuhh, that's not as clever as you think, filmmakers, no need to repeat it twice!) Plus the final action scene is all shaky so you can't really tell what's going on.

Overall, I thought `Domino' was a great deal of fun. Due to the over the top nature and the twitchy camera tricks, it's easy for me to see why the film was bashed by so many viewers, but I really didn't mind any of this in the least. For me, it was one the most entertaining films to watch. Though `Domino' wasn't the best film of 2005, it was one hell of a ride that is destined to reach cult status. Watch it before you judge it.

1.0 out of 5 stars way too stylized and hyper kinetic for my taste Nov. 14 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
i anticipated seeing this movie for a long time.the trailers made it
look like it might be good.but i'm afraid that was case of false
advertising.this movie is a complete mess.it's all over the place.i
didn't find keira knightley convincing in the slightest.tony scott
directed this stinker,which should have been my first clue.he was also
behind man on fire,another highly overrated movie(though not as bad as
domino)there is a fair amount of action,which wasn't enough to keep my
eyelids from closing.domino is(allegedly)based on domino harvey,who
turned her back on a modeling career to become a bounty
hunter.according to many reports,the filmmakers played fast and loose
with the facts,to try to make the film more appealing to the
masses.well,they feel short by a mile.not recommended except as a sleep
aid. 1*/5

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest movie of 2006 for sure! Feb. 20 2006
Format:DVD
Keira Knightley plays the sexy female bounty hunter, Domino "Just Call Me Domin" Harvey, who is born into a rich british home, but when her rich father dies, her mom goes hunting for a new boyfriend and moves to Beverley Hills (After seeing Beverley Hills 90210)This is where Domino started getting rough, training with light weapons and stuff. She joins a small group of Bounty Hunters and makes a big name for herself, even winning an award! She learns the ins and outs, but when one of Lateesha's children needs 300, 000 for an operation, they attempt a fake kidnapping. They steal 10 million from the mob and hand over the "alleged" robberers, and two are the mob's sons, unknown to them, so when the mob thinks they are dead (a rumor went around they accedentaly shot them)they go after Domino and her Boss Ed (Mobley) along with her friend/lover Choco (Rodriguez)and plan to meet atop a building for the exchange of the money. They take 300,000 out of the 10 million for Lateeshas operation, and go up to meet their doom, and they know it! Their driver Al(An afgani rebel) (the cat eating alien)bring a bomb up, and when they are being shot at (after Ed and Choco were almost killed, They all rush into the elevator, But Al is shot! Then he reveals he never gave them the 10million and actually sent it to free Afganistan. The elevator reachs the bottom, when Al pulls the bomb out and kills all the mob guys, Ed and Choco die of their wounds and the story ends there.
The movie is very SMART and makes you think alot, with a truck-load of action!

4.0 out of 5 stars A highly enjoyable, whacked-out acid trip of a movie Oct. 16 2005
By FairiesWearBoots8272 - Published on Amazon.com
Imagine that before going to bed one night, you've read a magazine article about bounty hunter Domino Harvey, watched an over-the-top action movie and taken a hit of acid. Your dreams would likely resemble Tony Scott's new film, Domino. The film opens with "This is based on a true story........ sort of", and "sort of" is certainly accurate. If you're expecting a film biography of Domino Harvey, then you will certainly be disappointed with this movie. It's not a biography at all, in fact after seeing the movie you might know less about Domino Harvey than you did before. However, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Rather than delivering another dull overly reverent biopic, Tony Scott brings forth something entirely different. The movie is a mixture of fact and fiction, however there's certainly a lot more fiction than fact. Domino Harvey was a real person who was really a bounty hunter, and died earlier this year. Several other characters in the movie were based on real people. The film's plot was most likely entirely concocted for the movie, however. The fact that it was scripted by Donnie Darko writer/director Richard Kelly explains some of the craziness. I think its separation from reality is one intriguing thing about it, though. It's not supposed to be an accurate biopic, it's merely an action-crime thriller involving several real characters.

Keira Knightley stars as Domino giving a boisterous, abrasive performance that is both thrilling and provocative. She manages to distance herself from her previously girlish roles in such movies as Pirates of the Caribbean and Bend It Like Beckham. Indeed my initial interest in seeing this movie was the image of Keira Knightley brandishing machine guns. How could I resist? But that's not all. You also get Mickey Rourke in full tough-guy mode as Domino's partner Ed Mosbey.

And as if the prospect of Keira Knightley and Mickey Rourke as gun-wielding bounty hunters weren't enough, you also get Christopher Walken as a crazy television producer. However, the insanity doesn't stop there! Tom Waits appears as a sort of religious prophet, and Brian Austin Green and Ian Ziering of Beverly Hills 90210 star as themselves! Then, by the time the movie goes to the Jerry Springer show with Mo'Nique unveiling her new categories for racially mixed people, you wonder when the kitchen sink is going to show up. In one scene, Christopher Walken's character is described as having "the attention span of a ferret on crystal meth," and that pretty much sums up the movie as a whole.

It really is a crazy flick. It could be called many things. It's being called a severe case of style over substance, and that's certainly true. However whatever it is, one thing it certainly isn't is boring. There is nearly always something interesting and exciting going on onscreen. High art it's definitely not, but it is an outrageously entertaining movie. Whether or not most viewers like it will most likely depend on personal taste.

Domino is already sharply dividing critics, but that's certainly understandable. If you're at all familiar with Tony Scott's work as a director, then you probably know what to expect. He's not a fan of long takes and the average length of his shots tends to be about two seconds. Domino only increases the hyperkinetic filmmaking style that he's been working on. Viewers will find this to be either enjoyable and interesting or immensely frustrating. Personally, I didn't mind. The movie only occasionally made my head hurt. Anyone with epilepsy will certainly want to stay far away. However, those with a high tolerance for indulgence and manic camerawork and editing may find much to enjoy in Domino. For some, it will certainly be sensory overload, but others will enjoy the over-the-top ultraviolent whacked-out spectacle for what it is. I see definite cult potential for this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Domino Oct. 27 2005
By Michael Zuffa - Published on Amazon.com
Domino Harvey (Knightley), daughter of actor Laurence Harvey, was a model turned bounty hunter before her recent death. This is her story (sort of). The story is exaggerated and even retold as new information becomes known. Domino is looking to get away from the 90210 world she has lived in, and joins Ed (Roarke) and Choco (Ramirez) as a bounty hunter. They all work for Claremont Williams (Lindo), bringing fugitives to justice. When Williams gets them all involved in a scheme that involves the mob, a billionaire and $300,000, Domino must find a way to get her and her crew out unscathed.

"domino" is a glorious mess that both works and doesn't work depending upon the moment. Director Tony Scott employs ADD filmmaking to get Domino's frantic story across. The constant quick cuts work against the story, but after a while become bearable. Knightly does an adequate job as the titular character, with great support from Rourke. Ironically, two of the best roles are Brian Austin Green and Ian Ziering (from "Beverly Hills 90210") playing themselves as hosts of a reality show focusing on Domino and her gang.

This film will probably either be loved or hated by the average viewer, most likely hated. It is not a bad film though, just one that could have been better. I think Tony Scott accomplished what he set out to do, but for this moviegoer, it wasn't enough. Wait for DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fully equipped with the attention span of a ferret on crystal meth... June 23 2008
By Andrew Ellington - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
When I first saw `Domino' I was in love. I must admit that I adore Tony Scott's directing style. I remember when I first saw `Man on Fire', I was just blown away by the way Scott could capture your attention so effortlessly. I am a huge fan of his brother Ridley (one of our finest working directors) and while I feel Ridley is the finer director, Tony is working his way up their on his own terms. So to get back to my initial statement, when I first saw `Domino' I was smitten, or in love, whatever I said at first. Upon repeated viewings though, I have found that the film, while fun and explosive and utterly irresistible, is not without flaws; quite a few to be honest.

`Domino' tells the fictionalized story of real life bounty hunter Domino Harvey. Former model and daughter of a famous actor, Domino lived a life of prestige and glamour but she desired something a little more gritty. She resented her money and prominence and wanted to escape it as quickly as possible. When by chance she received an opportunity to do so, she took it, and thus joined bounty hunters Ed and Choco.

Quite possibly the only part of this movie that is true is the fact that Domino Harvey was a real person. More of the story could be based on actual events (I use the word `could' strongly here) but it really doesn't matter much. Whether it's true or not is not the issue. Even the film itself tells you before it begins that this is `sort of' the truth, and we as the audience can appreciate that. This is a way for Scott to pay homage to a friend and he does so with guts and bravado. There is no denying that `Domino' is an exciting visual feast and delivers a good time.

There is a problem though with the manic style in which Scott tells this story. It may not be true, but it should still at least be understandable, and while I'm not saying that the story is impossible to `get' I am saying that it takes a lot out of you to follow it coherently. The film is all over place in most parts, jumping time frames, repeating itself, stuttering, changing direction, jumping back, shifting focus; delivering large amounts of information at once and then going back and changing its mind on us. If you focus your attention you'll get it, but if you are not one who is used to having to really pay close attention you'll find yourself lost, and once you're lost you won't be able to find your way back. `Man on Fire' is a little more controlled, a film that uses the visual flare Tony Scott is known for but with restraint so as not to take away from the impact of the film.

To quote Mena Suvari's character; this film "has the attention span of a ferret on crystal meth."

The plot development is a little overly complicated at times, so much so that it causes me to question Scott's decision to simplify Domino's initiation into the world of bounty hunting. He takes a lot of time to develop this twisted and intricate DMV scam but skimps on showing us how Domino became the bounty hunter that she was (I highly doubt it was as easy as the film makes it seem).

A major highlight to the film though is the acting on the part of the entire cast. Keira Knightley and Mickey Rourke had a great year in 2005. They both gave award winning performances (Knightley in `Pride and Prejudice' and Rourke in `Sin City'), and Knightley even went on to garner an Oscar nomination. Here they excel at playing the character they are given. Knightley gives Harvey heart, and she manages to engage the audience and get us invested in her. Rourke creates a father figure for Domino, but never waters him down. He's still rough and gruff and extreme. Edgar Ramirez does a great job as Choco, the bounty hunter after Domino's heart, and Delroy Lindo is his usual fantastic self as Claremont, Domino's boss. The cast is extensive and serves us memorable performances by everyone from Mo'Nique (her Jerry Springer scene alone is unforgettable) to 90210 stars Ziering and Green (who do a stand up job of digging into their own celebrity).

True, `Domino' could have been a little cleaner, but then again, maybe that would have taken away from the impact Scott was going for. I would have liked to have seen Scott use a little more restraint with his style and delivered something a little more heavy hitting like `Man on Fire' (possibly his best film) and I would have liked to have seem a little more though gone into fleshing out these characters a little morel; but in the end I can't really complain too much. `Domino' is fun and exciting and engaging and serves up a deliciously violent good time. It's not perfect, but no one asked it to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Entertaining Action Film March 27 2006
By Joshua Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Tony Scott's follow up to his hit film "Man on Fire" begins with the tag line:

"This is Based on a True Story...Sort of". That's probably the most accurate way to put it. Before seeing this movie, I had known nothing about this film except what I read in a short synopsis. The film was about a model named Domino Harvey, who's father had been an actor named Laurence Harvey who became an award winning bounty hunter. Then she died (I believe it was a drug overdose) while she was awaiting federal drug charges against her. So, I'm not sure how much of this film is true and personally...I don't give a f**k.

I had wanted to see this movie when it came to theatres and was pushed to see it more when Quentin Tarantino named it as one of his top 5 favorite films of the year on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Scott's last film "Man on Fire" was the first movie I had seen by Scott that portrayed his new directing style. Which means the psychedellc, overlighted shots you see in this film. I don't mind this cinematography and it works better in this movie then it did in MOF. But, anyway...This movie was not liked by critics for the most part, although three of the most respected critics (Roger Ebert, Richard Roeper, and Peter Travers) did like it, so I was expecting just another film like "Man on Fire" which is entertaining the first couple times and then just gets boring.

I also wasn't sure if I'd buy Keira Knightley as a bad girl. I'd already seen her do a medieval version bad girl in "King Arthur". But, from the first frame of this movie to the last, I loved it. This movie has a great script (no matter howt true it is), Scott's direction is in top form, and the performances are great and believable. This is probably my favorite action film of 2005, it's certainly the most entertaining. I was engrossed in this movie, glued to my seat even. It's not that the twists in this movie are good or anything, but just that it's fascinating and never boring. Anyway, here's my necessary synopsis.

Knightly plays Domino. Ever since she was a little girl Domino has loathed Hollywood (and the series "Beverly Hills 90210") and wanted to be a rebel. Not only does she want to be, she is...And she's good at it. Eventually she attends a bounty hunter seminar and catches the attention of veteran bounty hunter Ed and his co-worker Choco (Edgar Ramirez), who speaks perfect english but thinks its cute to talk in spanish in almost every scene in the movie. The two see her at first as just a way of looking like "two of the coolest guys in the world" but soon she becomes a real part of the team. It is then that Domino, Ed, and Choco are assigned by their boss Claremont Williams III to track down the people responsible for stealing ten million dollars from an armored truck, which was apparently robbed by a mob bosses two children and a couple of other guys who don ex-first lady masks.

Anyway, I don't want to say much more about the film except that I urge you to see it. This is truly an entertaining movie, no kidding...I almost forgot to mention that it's also funny. The "Blacktino" scene I found hilarious and

the way Rourke and Knightly slyly utter a lot of their dialouge is very good.

--A.

And I want to add, for all those male Keira Knightley fans. Hate to burst your bubble, but according to an interview I read in People Magazine she's using a body double in her sex scenes.

1.0 out of 5 stars These Dominos All Fell Down--All Style, Little Substance, And No Sense Aug. 5 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
"Domino" works in overdrive to be all things to all people, and as a result--it fails to be successful in almost every regard. There's great potential, to be sure, but the resultant film is a loud and convoluted mess. The movie wants to be a slick action picture AND a hip and ironic satire about Hollywood AND a procedural about bounty hunting AND a loose biopic treatment of Domino Harvey AND an edgy Tarantino type comedy. What it ultimately and unfortunately succeeds in is pointlessness. Most sadly, it is absolutely not an homage to the real, recently deceased Domino Harvey--who, by all accounts, had a fascinating story to tell. I wish this had been that movie.

While I know many people enjoy this film and its excesses, I just react very negatively to it. So I'm not going to spend a lot of time on this one. To me, it represents everything that is wrong with movies today--which is especially ironic when it thinks it's poking fun at the Hollywood machine. It's addle-brained entertainment for those who expect no amount of logic or common sense in their storytelling. The actors are fine, I suppose. I can see why the role appealed to Keira Knightly and her diehard fans may want to check this out as a curiosity. There is non-stop action to appeal to the eye, and if that's all you need--it's here. But the editing, effects and music are so amped up in an attempt to make you ignore that things really never make sense.

A prime example of this is the entire movie's premise! There is one crooked armored car robbery. It's an inside job, a nefarious scheme which involves Domino's direct supervisor. He is trying to illegally (and secretly) fleece a major Vegas billionaire. However, he puts Domino and her team on the case. That's fine, he'd have to act like it was business as usual. But the real kicker is that he is aware that a television reality show is filming their every movement. So, in fact, the "secret plan" and Domino apprehending and turning some kids over to the billionaire is all being filmed. Don't worry, though, later on our heroes will just blow up the TV van to erase the footage. Huh? Maybe they should have hired someone else. I don't know--I guess I'll never be a criminal mastermind. By the time the end rolls around, there is the requisite shoot-out with dozens of people representing four different groups. I couldn't help thinking I'd already seen this done much better in a thoroughly more entertaining film by the same director--"True Romance." Oh, and one more thing--spare me the dead goldfish symbolism. Absolutely painful. Take a pass on this one. KGHarris, 10/06.
