Product Description

Fast-paced action thriller based on real events. The film traces the trajectory of Domino Harvey's (Keira Knightley) tumultuous life. Beginning with the death of her father, Domino develops into a hard nosed, scrappy young woman who trains with nunchucks beside her mother's luxurious pool and responds violently to anyone who crosses her. Bored with the runway and the glamorous L.A. life, Domino shows up for a bounty-hunter seminar. Catching the 'teachers' of the seminar as they try to cut and run with the proceeds, she manages to win their respect and joins their team. This consists of Ed Mosbey (Mickey Rourke), the tough-as-nails leader and Domino's surrogate father, and Choco (Edgar Ramirez), an impulsive Venezuelan who harbors a not-so-secret love for Domino. The three form a kind of family, working under Claremont Williams (Delroy Lindo), who 'plays Charlie to their three angels'. For a time they are unstoppable, even agreeing to let the slimy Mark Heiss (Christopher Walken) produce a reality-TV show about them, which is hilariously hosted by Ian Ziering and Brian Austin Green. But when Claremont orchestrates a complicated inside job in order to raise the money for his granddaughter's doctor bills, the precarious balance within the trio is disturbed.

From Amazon.co.uk

Loosely based on the real life story of the late bounty hunter Domino Harvey, Keira Knightley quickly sheds her softer image here with an unflinching performance in the title role. As Domino, she brandishes guns, reacts against anyone who crosses her, and isn’t above a lapdance to get her out of a tight spot. Yet it’s the partnership she forms with Mickey Rourke’s Ed Mosbey, her leader and effectively surrogate father, that sits at the core of this good-but-uneven movie, and allows both actors to excel in their roles.

The story is told in flashback, as Domino is interrogated by Lucy Liu’s police detective. From there, it follows the story of Domino’s life, from her tragic early days, through to meeting Mosbey and her subsequent life as a bounty hunter. And, laced with strong performances and some nicely-constructed sequences, for long periods the film works well. Working against it at times though is director Tony Scott’s (Man On Fire, Crimson Tide, True Romance) over-fussy directorial style, which is very much take it or leave it, but does at times get in the way of the storytelling. At the point where you want him to focus on what’s happening, there’s just one too many flashy shots or quick edits.

Still, Domino works, and is suitably removed from the glossy, vacuous action movie you may be expecting. It’s very stylised, but the script from Donnie Darko’s Richard Kelly covers its bases well. And while the film itself isn’t without a couple of problems, the end result is still well worth watching.--Simon Brew --This text refers to the DVD edition.

I find it hard to understand why this above average action thriller managed to upset quite so many people in quite so many ways. It is certainly a cut or two above the typical Hollywood formulaic bang-bang flick and has deliberately set out to be different ... so, if your idea of a buzz is Arnie, Sly or Bruce with no requirement to engage brain cells, this probably isn't your type of film; similarly, if you're expecting Keira Knightley to reprise any of her other, more typical, roles you're going to be disappointed.

The main beefs seem to be at Miss Knightley having to audacity to play a hard-bitten action role; in fact, she does so rather well. In part, this is because she is a good actress but there is a delightful incongruity between the extremely posh background from which she longs to escape and the brutal world into which she does. It would have been very easy to script the role as a hard-nosed, kick-ass, all-American, gun-tottin', apple-pie lovin', tough as nails but with a heart of gold, archetypal Hollywood female action role but Knightley's character is actually far more interesting and her attempts to fit in to the role to which she aspires deserve to have been better developed. As it is, her plummy tones and naivety contrast delightfully with Mickey Rourke's jaded cynical world-weariness and the rage flowing from Edgar Ramirez's emotionally dysfunctional psyche.

The cinematography and directorial style are also decidedly different. Whether you love or loathe the jump shot, stop motion, sample/mix effects is a matter of personal taste; personally, they grew on me: the style is somewhere between Tarantino and Baz Luhrmann (William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet) and help fuel the otherwise rather uneven pace of the movie.

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.

Domino is loosely based on the real life Domino Harvey, born in 1969, who was the daughter of famed actor Laurence Harvey who died in 1973 when Domino was only four years old. Her personal life was as reckless as her career and Domino died as a result of drug abuse on June 27, 2005. She was part of its making but died before its completion and was reportedly unhappy with her portrayal. Domino Harvey was said to disapprove of the Hollywood version of her story because it depicted her as heterosexual, when she was in reality a proud lesbian.

It is hard to imagine that this movie is anywhere close to her life as a bounty hunter as her real quarry consisted mainly of small-time drug dealers and hopeless drug addicts, a category into which she herself steadily descended. Having said that whilst Keira Knightly has produced a few good movies ( nothing great if I may say), this is an absolute flop from her and also for Mickey Rourke. Their acting leaves a lot to be desired topped with a hard to follow story line which has little plausibility and dialogue which is poor - generally a movie which is all over the place with no real entertainment value to it.

Micky Rourke excels with his poor performance and where he tries again to use his old, gnarled looks with anti establishment attitude to achieve some effect but is a waste of time and keeps him in contention for another Razzie Award which has miraculously avoid since 1991 when he achieved a double or Wild Orchid and Desperate Hours. As with Knightly Rourke is not a bad actor at times but when he bombs, he bombs.

The other big names in this movie, Jacqueline Bisset and Christopher Walken, did nothing to improve it and in my opinion have done themselves no favors in being in this movie either.
