Domino Reviews

  • It's the tale of a real person in only the most abstract, opportunistic way, since what Scott has done is to pin the scandal label of 'true story' onto his most fractiously vapid action film since Beverly Hills Cop II.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • Tony Scott's tongue-in-check interpolation of the life and times of a privileged brat turned bounty hunter has no social value outside of a feverish will to entertain.

    Manohla Dargis — New York Times

  • You can't accuse this film of bogging down in cheap psychology, yet you come out dissatisfied and without a clue about what made this person tick.

    Mike Clark — USA Today

  • It's like a ferret on crystal meth that belatedly discovers ecstasy, and it's a tiresome trip either way.

    Ann Hornaday — Washington Post

  • [Director Tony Scott's] pornographic lust for bloodletting, gunplay, and out-of-control camerawork far exceeds his abilities to tell a story.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • Abusively moronic enough to inspire something like pity.

    Jessica Winter — Village Voice

  • It airbrushes and glorifies the short, angry life of its subject in ways that are practically indecent.

    Jami Bernard — New York Daily News

  • 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.

    Amy Biancolli — Houston Chronicle

  • The movie plays like the work of a self-impressed film student. It's ripe with strident stylistic flourishes, harsh atmospheric cinematography and superficial roles that allow cast members to scream their heads off. Either that, or get them blown off.

    Philip Wuntch — Dallas Morning News

  • Did I admire Domino? In a sneaky way, yes. It's fractured and maddening, but it's alive.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • [Director Tony] Scott and screenwriter Richard Kelly turn Domino's life upside down, mixing tiny parts fact with heaping, heaving sums of fiction. But with a real-life story like Domino's, why all the fantasy?

    Allison Benedikt — Chicago Tribune

  • Domino is less a movie than a hyperkinetic slide show -- presented during a nuclear attack.

    Steven Rea — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • Here is a movie so bad it's ... no, actually it's still bad.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • 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.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • The only defense for Domino, the first-ever movie in a blender, is that director Tony Scott is pioneering a new form of cinema, in which the audience can never focus on a single object for more than a half second.

    Bill Muller — Arizona Republic

  • Domino is far from dull. But it doesn't convince.

    Todd McCarthy — Variety

  • Domino is amusingly decadent for a while but eventually wears you out. Two eyeballs are not enough to see it with.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • 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.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • 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.

    Peter Howell — Toronto Star

  • 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.

    Stephen Cole — Globe and Mail
