Tony Scott (2005)

Our Score
Tony Scott takes his overblown style of film-making to new levels of superficiality in this frenetic action thriller. Scripted by Donnie Darko director Richard Kelly, it's inspired by the true story of the late Domino Harvey (played by Keira Knightley), the daughter of actor Laurence Harvey, who swapped her privileged life for the dangers of bounty hunting. Yet despite the astonishing source material, only the barest factual bones are incorporated. Instead, Scott offers a male-orientated fantasy in which Domino and her reprobate colleagues (including Mickey Rourke) get dragged into a deadly case involving the Mafia and the FBI, while being filmed for their own reality TV show. The initial set-up is slick and exciting, with Knightley enjoyably tongue-in-cheek as the sultry bad girl. Unfortunately, the characters and plotline remain frustratingly underdeveloped, overshadowed by Scott's grating obsession with visual experimentation that makes even his hyperkinetic Man on Fire look sedate.


The daughter of a respected actor becomes bored with her high society lifestyle and trains to become a bounty hunter. However, the thrills of her new occupation, coupled with the presence of television cameras recording her exploits for a reality TV show, soon send her life spiralling out of control. Thriller, starring Keira Knightley, Mickey Rourke and Jacqueline Bisset.
