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

You want me to shoot 'em in the kneecaps?
Now, you listen to me. Hold on one second. Ask them politely where the money is. If they don't know, just tell them to start digging their own graves.

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!)
