Storyline Heading
Domino finds her true calling and joins a colorful band of reprobates that includes her wolfish yet formidable ex-con boss, a ruggedly sexy Latino; and an Afghani ex-pat obsessed with explosives. An unlikely foursome to be sure, but their synchronized style consistently results in the capture of felonious bail jumpers. Before long they become L.A.’s most successful, not to mention infamous, bounty hunters. And where better to show off one’s talent than on television?
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Thriller - This is a violent action adventure with ample doses of comedy and flashy visuals, not a straightforward biography of model-turned-bounty hunter Domino Harvey. In fact, aside from the name, the film in no way resembles her or any real life. Those looking for standard action though may be turned off by the hyperactive visual style and quirky, sometimes silly, humor.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Watching Domino is an exhausting experience, and that's not altogether welcome. It goes beyond kinetic into frenzied, and Scott's inability to rein in his excesses is going to frustrate a majority of viewers. It's almost impossible to 'get into' the movie, since the style is distancing, and there are no moments of quiet or introspection.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Did I admire 'Domino'? In a sneaky way, yes. It's fractured and maddening, but it's alive. It begins with the materials of a perfectly conventional thriller. It heeds Godard's rule that 'all you need for a movie is a girl and a gun.'

USA Today Full Review
Below Average True or not, beware of any movie that casts Tom Waits as a desert apparition who talks. When some of the characters drop drugs and encounter Waits-in-a-haze on a road trip, the dramatic tone doesn't differ much from the incoherent scramble of all that has come before.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 65 moviegoer opinions. These are not terrible opinions but they certainly aren't very good! Most of the teen males really enjoyed "Domino," but a third of them rated it sort of low. Where the opinions really drop is with the twentysomething males. Less than half truly enjoyed it. The remaining ones only rated it average to below average. This is pretty low for a movie targeted at this age and gender group. The adult male opinions are very mixed. About half enjoyed "Domino" and half didn't care much for it.

The opinions from the ladies aren't any better. Less than half of all age groups truly enjoyed "Domino." The remaining opinions are somewhat low to very low.

I would say "Domino" is risky. Some of you will enjoy it very much, but most of you will not be very satisfied. I would recommend a matinee if you feel like taking a chance on "Domino." Otherwise, it would be worth a rental to see if you are one of those who enjoys it.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The daughter of respected actor and matinee idol Lawrence Harvey, and model turned socialite Sophie Wynn, Domino Harvey (Keira Knightley) was born into a life of wealth and privilege – a lifestyle that did not interest her. Even from her earliest years, Domino rebelled against convention and the jet set. At the tender age of eight her beloved father passed away and her mother looked to the stability of boarding school in a misguided attempt to tame her wild child. But nothing could repress Domino's fiery nature – not friendships, not school, not her mother's high society. Even the extraordinary excesses paraded before her during a brief stint at modeling paled in comparison to her own escapades. Not until she stumbled upon a job seminar recruiting aspiring bounty hunters was her thirst for excitement at long last quenched. To Sophie's (Jacqueline Bisset) horror, Domino not only fell in love with the job but also with her fellow adventurers, who over the years would become her family.

Domino finds her true calling and joins a colorful band of reprobates that includes her wolfish yet formidable ex-con boss, a ruggedly sexy Latino; and an Afghani ex-pat obsessed with explosives. An unlikely foursome to be sure, but their synchronized style consistently results in the capture of felonious bail jumpers. Before long they become L.A.'s most successful, not to mention infamous, bounty hunters. And where better to show off one's talent than on television?

When producer Mark Heiss (Christopher Walken) and his faithful assistant, Kimmie (Mena Suvari), come knocking, the bounty hunters agree to become the stars of a new reality television show, "The Bounty Squad”, hosted by Beverly Hills 90210's Ian Ziering and Brian Austin Green (as themselves). Unbeknownst to cast and crew alike, Domino, Ed, Choco and Alf are about to embark on their biggest case ever.

In a bizarre turn, the bounty hunters find themselves tracking the most dangerous fugitives of their careers thanks to the antics of their employer, bail bondsman Claremont Williams III (Delroy Lindo). Faced with a financial crisis concerning his extended family – including his girlfriend, Lateesha (Mo'Nique), their daughter and granddaughter, as well as Lateesha's twin cousins Lashandra (Macy Gray) and Lashindra (Shondrella Avery) – Claremont hatches a reckless plan to extricate himself from economic ruin. When his plan goes awry, Domino and her team blast their way out of a complex FBI investigation, led by criminal psychologist Taryn Miles (Lucy Liu), that involves the mob, a couple of errant college students and some ‘greazee' white trash thieves.
