The (mostly) true story of a Hollywood princess turned bounty hunter is told in this witty action-drama from director Tony Scott. Domino Harvey (Keira Knightley) was the daughter of famed actor Laurence Harvey (played by Jesse Pate) who passed on when Domino was only eight years old. Domino's mother, former fashion model Paulene Stone (played by Jacqueline Bisset and renamed (%Sophie Wynn) in the film), strove to give her daughter a comfortable life, but Domino was naturally rebellious, and after a contentious stint in boarding school, a brief career as a runway model, and a fling with the fashion business, Domino was looking for something more exciting. She found it when he met Ed Mosbey (Mickey Rourke), an ex-con who had gone on to a successful career as a "bail recovery agent" -- in short, a bounty hunter. Ed also taught others how to join his profession, and Domino took his course and joined his team, along with Choco (Edgar Ramirez), a headstrong bail agent who took an immediate fancy to Domino. Domino, Ed, and Choco became a successful team -- successful enough that television producer Mark Heiss (Christopher Walken) asked them to become the subject of a television reality series. However, it was after the cameras were turned on Domino that her life got truly crazy. Bail bondsman Claremont Williams III (Delroy Lindo) had hired Domino and her friends for a risky case, and soon Domino, Ed, and Choco were chasing missing men and money while landing in hot water with both the FBI and the Mafia. Domino was loosely based on Domino Harvey's real life story; sadly her personal life was as reckless as her career, and Domino died as a result of drug abuse on June 27, 2005, after this film was completed. The film also features Lucy Liu, Mena Suvari, Macy Gray, and Dabney Coleman.~Mark Deming

HAVE TO SEE ! BLU-RAY DVD & ACTION FILLED ♡DOMINO♡
I LOVED this movie. It had incredible action scenes, & great actors performing fantastic roles. Including : MICKEY ROURKE, LUCY LUI, JACQUELINE BISSET, Just to name a few & my personal favorite KIERA KNIGHTLY who I fell in LOVE with. You here the name * DOMINO * & know exactly who that is. She's so HOT, CUTE, & fills
her role as one of the bounty hunters perfectly. INCREDIBLE ACTRESS. Completely different from any other of her roles in mostly British movies with her long hair. You'll definitely become one of her FAVORITE FANS. I couldn't get enough of her. Their are plenty of action scenes, shootings, crashes, make out scene, even some comedy. I've watch it multiple times catching new things each time. This movie was a sleeper that deservered a lot more recognition. Recommend highly to everyone, but small children 15 & under. KEIRA needs to make more movies like this one. Im sure you'll agree after seeing this one. The sound & picture quality are excellent. I had it on my surround sound cranked it up totally awesome. Price very reasonable. TAKE CARE & GOD BLESS, DAVEY #28
The film is okay. I'm a fan of Tony Scott's work, but the direction and editing is a little off-beat for my taste. I think the acting is pretty good; I like Keira Knightly, and the rest of the cast did well. The story is interesting, but it starts off strong and doesn't deliver like you might expect. In fact, I'd only give the movie 3 stars if it weren't for Edgar Ramirez...wow, that man is easy on the eyes!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Heard great things and did end up watching it finally, it's a solid action movie with some interesting twists.
This is a great movie to watch. The plot is everywhere but yet, it still stays with the flow of the movie. If you like gunplay, than this movie has enough to fulfill your rush of shoot'em style. Pure greatness
