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

Multiple key off-screen lines of dialog are actually voiced by picture editor Tony Ciccone. Ciccone recorded the lines while editing in post production. Director Tony Scott was impressed enough with the performances of the one-time actor to keep them in the final film. See more »
When Choco and Ed are arguing in the hotel room, Choco cocks his revolver twice without uncocking in-between, but this is more likely to be a repetition of the first cocking, which is frequently done throughout the film, repeating lines and actions after they have occurred. See more »
Tony Scott has done it again. Pushed the envelope. The only good review I could find was in the New York Times...this tells you a lot about how far ahead TS is. Of course all the people who liked all those DVDs you hated yourself for sitting through hated Domino. These are the same people that hated Man on Fire or Revenge. The new levels of technique Mr. Scott has been trying out have bothered many film goers. However, ask yourself how many directors and studios are cranking out product that is completely middle of the road and presents absolutely no challenge to the audience. I certainly think there is much more room for the major budget film industry to take risks and give the audience some choices and challenges. I would hate to see these efforts dampened by bean counters!
