Rolling Stone
The movie is full of possibilities. Frustratingly, only a few of them are realized.

Empire
Individual sequences are all impeccably assembled, Rourke's grizzled vet chips in some memorable deadpan dialogue.

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.

Dallas Observer
Sure, it's amusing, but it isn't much more.

ReelViews
Yes, the film is interesting, but it doesn't work.

Variety
Satisfying neither as character study nor as straight-ahead actioner.

L.A. Weekly
Scott's lack of faith in the script is all too evident -- in most scenes, the lines are so dull, he has to up the ante of his already-infamous attention-deficit style.
30
Village Voice
The script, allegedly by "Donnie Darko's" Richard Kelly, throws together tangentially related plots like cats in a sack.
30
The A.V. Club
Domino de-emphasizes the human element--not to mention such niceties as plot and clarity--to such a degree that only those who show up purely to watch combustibles go "boom" won't feel insulted.
25
Entertainment Weekly
The movie is trash shot to look like art imitating trash.
