When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
A police sergeant must rally the cops and prisoners together to protect themselves on New Year's Eve, just as corrupt policeman surround the station with the intent of killing all to keep their deception in the ranks.
The daughter of an actor father and a social-climber mother, Domino Harvey, bored with her life, decides to join the team of Ed Moseby and becomes a bounty hunter. But she gets in trouble when the Mafia's money is stolen from an armored truck, while Moseby and his crew are participating in a reality show produced by Mark Heiss. The situation gets out of control when the sons of a rival mobster are kidnapped while the FBI is monitoring two gangs of mobsters. Written by

The scene where Domino, Ed, and Choco are standing outside Claremont's office with their guns is a reference to a photo of Domino Harvey and Ed Martinez outside Celes King III's office, that was in the newspaper article where Tony Scott first heard about Domino. The photo was also printed on the cover page of all drafts of the film's shooting script. See more »

I love you.
I once swore never to invest too much emotion in anyone.
I love you.
I love you, Choco.
It's a great day to die!

On the Australian DVD the credits end with the real-life Domino but do not start with Keira. She is just before the real Domino See more »
Based on a true story...sort of. What a great movie. Soundtrack is perfect, plot is good, direction interesting, but let's face it what really matters are the characters. It's all about the characters and this movie is packed full of fully developed, incredibly intriguing characters who are expertly portrayed by a flawless cast. Not saying there are no plot holes, it's not as perfectly polished as Momento (another great movie) but close enough. The truth is I could have just watched these characters take a walk through a mall and been entertained. Edger Ramirez is an actor I'll be looking forward to seeing again. I can't believe I missed this one on big screen!! 10/10, this is a must see and I can't wait for the deleted/alternate scenes on the DVD (already out, but I don't have it yet!)
