Storyline

After a civil war in Hell, Lucifer has been defeated and the Key to Hell is in Lord Desecrater's grasp. However, the rebellious Dominator has his own thoughts and keeps the Key to Hell away from Lord Desecrater and is forced to fight off his forces including three other demons - Decimator, Extricator and Lady Violator. While on Earth, undertaker and exocrist Dr. Payne is in charge of London's dead. His three daughters who play in their own rockband called Crowcut, accidentally open a gateway to Hell by invoking black magi-ck into their music via the Lost Chord and unleash Dominator. Luckily for humanity, Dominator is willing to defend mankind, even if he is only interested in Dr. Payne's eldest daughter, Tara. When Desecrater learns of what has happened on Earth, he seeks out help using his new human agent - the corrupt politician Bishop, to carry out the rest of his deeds. Written by Vendaval Este

Low-budget CG madness starring Dani Filth? Genius.
2 November 2006 | by punchmypigeounSee all my reviews

Now, Dominator is something that has garnered negative and positive results, but in 2006 with a new Dominator movie just around the corner, you can't deny that it has been successful. Originating from a history of Metal Hammer comics and top-running manga, Dominator is a genuine series and is gaining strength over time.

The Dominator movie of 2003 is a hellish festival of Rock n' Roll references, Heavy Metal, British humour, all-round-cheesiness and overall insanity that makes it a fantastic piece of British cinema; hate it or love it, this is one monstrous movie.

Alan Grant's script is made of some truly mad stuff and it goes so well for this type of movie; badass monster rockstars swinging samurai swords about and blowing up skeletons with electricity while fighting (and shagging) buxom ladies. It's all great fun and the visuals aid this.

Don't get me wrong, in terms of CGI movies Dominator has done nothing to push the category any further and even though it was made in 2003, the programs used to make it are now primitive and in some cases ruin the experience, but nonetheless it works well with this type of movie. Plus, I can't blame Renga Media as, after all, it was made on a tiny budget - this sort of movies can't really be criticised for their obvious shortcomings, but a huge budget movie using terrible special effects is something that should be criticised. Plus, it has made Dominator stand out.

The cast is made up of a good list of stars, such as Ingrid Pitt and Doug Bradley. Dani Filth is insanely fitting for his role, but sometimes he just overdoes it and you can tell he's spitting when he says "power". If anything, Tara Harley is someone who isn't very good, but she did extremely well at sounding bitter at discovering Dominator's little sin with her sister.

This is an unbelievable piece of cinema, and Renga Media will ensure you will never look at CGI the same way again, but be warned that this is something not for everyone.
