Trivia

The scene where Domino, Ed, and Choco are standing outside Claremont's office with their guns is a reference to a photo of Domino Harvey and Ed Martinez outside Celes King III's office, that was in the newspaper article where Tony Scott first heard about Domino. The photo was also printed on the cover page of all drafts of the film's shooting script. See more »

Anthony Cigliutti: 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.

Domino is a great ride! Forget the naysayers who can't appreciate a unique style that supports its story and characters.
16 October 2005 | by the-lyons-dendotcomSee all my reviews

I totally dug this movie! Contrary to some comments here there is a plot, it's just not revealed linearly, not every movie should be straight forward and have big global issues on its mind and I'm cool with that.

DOMINO drips with style. The style is running off the screen it's so heavy. Definitely if you couldn't handle "Man on Fire" for this reason stay away from Domino, it's Man on Fire x 2 for style (and personally I loved MOF too). And the style that director Tony Scott has been working on and perfecting FOR THIS MOVIE fit the material perfectly. Not every movie can look and flow the same way, and frankly as a filmmaker myself I totally support the director's vision here and his attempt to shake-up the mainstream by-the-books style a bit.

You can't handle the style of Domino, good, go watch just about anything else available out there because 90% of it's gonna be an A to B type movie with lingering shots that you can feel comfortable in. Me though, I can appreciate when something different comes out visually that fits in the world the filmmaker is creating. It's taking cinematic risks in the mainstream, you gotta appreciate that!

Keira Knightley does an amazing job here! The movie is on her shoulders, she doesn't once seem like a weak little girlie, from the get-go I believed in her character, no questions asked. Personally I was already a fan, now I'm totally hooked, the Brit has talent - I hear too she may get an Oscar nod for "Pride & Prejudice"... Rourke continues his comeback streak, nice job. Ramirez, the cast's newcomer was entertaining as well and I enjoy the subtle moments of lust and torture b/w him and Domino.

Call me crazy but I had a blast with this movie! It was one of those movies you can actually call a "ride" and mean it. It doesn't pretend to be something it's not, if you liked the remix-style trailers you're gonna enjoy the movie.

P.S. - the real Domino Harvey was on the set during some of the filming and apparently was happy with her translation to screen. If you watch the end credits she appears after Keira and she also did the dialogue in the "Heads you live, tails you die" song...
