Critic Reviews



Based on 36 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
It's fractured and maddening, but it's alive.
The movie is full of possibilities. Frustratingly, only a few of them are realized.
New York Post
Among the year's ultraviolent pulp movies, "Sin City" was prettier and "The Devil's Rejects" more focused.
It now seems that style has completely replaced substance in Scott's films, and he leaves gaping holes in his heroine's character.
The Hollywood Reporter
Thanks to dynamic performances by Keira Knightley, Mickey Rourke, Edgar Ramirez and a strong cast -- sometimes all but buried beneath irksome stylistic flourishes -- this dark and absurd melodrama certainly has raw energy.
You can't accuse this film of bogging down in cheap psychology, yet you come out dissatisfied and without a clue about what made this person tick.
Philadelphia Inquirer
Domino is less a movie than a hyperkinetic slide show - presented during a nuclear attack.
New York Daily News
The movie is quite off its rocker: Jerry Springer, Chrisopher Walken, Tom Waits as a roadside prophet, a miscast, nervous Lucy Liu as an FBI agent -- it's a feverish, violent jumble that's shot as if high on mescaline -- the drug, not the salad.
Entertainment Weekly
The movie is trash shot to look like art imitating trash.
Two hours of senselessness and overkill, decked out in lurid, bad-trip colors.
Wall Street Journal
Domino is a new definition of a snuff movie. It snuffs out every vestige of feeling.
