Domino Harvey (Keira Knightley) turns her back on wealth and privilege for the excitement of life as a bounty hunter.
" 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. "
" A messy, fictionalized saga of femme-fatale bounty-hunter Domino Harvey. "
" 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. "
" Domino is amusingly decadent for a while but eventually wears you out. Two eyeballs are not enough to see it with. "
" Domino is far from dull. But it doesn't convince. "
" Domino is far from good, but it's mildly entertaining if you lower your standards appropriately. "
" Domino is less a movie than a hyperkinetic slide show -- presented during a nuclear attack. "
" 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. "
" 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. "
" 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. "
" It airbrushes and glorifies the short, angry life of its subject in ways that are practically indecent. "
" 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. "
" It's like a ferret on crystal meth that belatedly discovers ecstasy, and it's a tiresome trip either way. "
" It's sad to say that an arbitrary appearance by Jerry Springer is the picture's closest brush with inspiration. "
" 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. "
" The movie has roughly the same effect on the nervous system as listening to a box of marbles being dumped onto a linoleum floor. "
" 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. "
" 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. "
