Loosely based on a true story, this crime drama is about Domino Harvey (Keira Knightley), daughter of famous actor Lawrence Harvey. In search of excitement, Domino finds it at a seminar for bounty hunters and then walks away from her Beverly Hills lifestyle to pursue the vilest of criminals. While her ability is initially questioned, she is accepted because of her good looks and begins working for an agency. As it turns out, she offers more than a pretty face and is named “Bounty Hunter of the Year.” She attracts the attention of a TV producer (Christopher Walken) who wants to make a reality show of Domino and her team (Mickey Rourke, Edgar Ramirez). While on a mission to find the perpetrators of an armored-truck heist, Domino discovers mob connections that point to a Las Vegas hotel owner. She and her team must now destroy the evidence created by the TV crew before the mob finds them.
“Domino” is a wildly bizarre movie that is hard to follow. In fact, if you were to take a book and tear out all of the chapters, then mix them all up and read it, you would have accomplished the same thing as director Tony Scott did with this movie. Then, add as much sex, language, violence and nudity as you can fit into 120 minutes…get the idea?
Not only is this film not meant for the family, I would challenge that very few audience members would come away from this experience with anything other than a headache.
