    It's fractured and maddening, but it's alive.

    Among the year's ultraviolent pulp movies, "Sin City" was prettier and "The Devil's Rejects" more focused.
  3. Sure, it's amusing, but it isn't much more.
  4. So over-plotted that it's borderline incomprehensible.

    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.

    I suspect Scott sees Domino as the ultimate provocation, his way of grabbing Hollywood by the throat and shouting, "You want reality??! I'll give you REALITY!!!" Sort of.

    Domino seemed to me the end of the world for movies--a glimpse of a future so excruciating that I'd prefer to take my chances with Hitchcock's eye-gouging avians.

    Here's what reallly ticked me off: my overwhelming feeling that everything that made sense in this shoot got left on the edit room Here's what reallly ticked me off: my overwhelming feeling that everything that made sense in this shoot got left on the edit room floor. I'm a fan of the Scott brothers, but in this case I found myself staying in the theater seat in the forlorn hope that something might happen on-screen to make sense of all the posturing mish-mash. There was obviously a lot of talent on both sides of the camera, but we only have past work to go by because predious little of it shows here. And with the constant extreme close-ups of glowing cigarettes I found myslef wondering if the whole mess would end with everyone just coughing themselves to death. Expand

    Where to begin? Knightley is absurd and utterly unbelievable as a badass; you just keep seeing her in some upscale, tony British acting Where to begin? Knightley is absurd and utterly unbelievable as a badass; you just keep seeing her in some upscale, tony British acting academy practicing her snarl in the mirror. In fairness, she is hung out to dry by the asinine screenplay. In fairness, the screenplay is butchered (literally) by the desperate-to-be-cool directing and acting. Scott has been great before (SPY GAME, MAN ON FIRE, almost), but his increasing use of gratuitous subtitles is disturbing. It reminds one of those old Sesame Street skits where the silhouetted adult profil would sound out a word and it would fly from their mouth on screen. Why all these words on screen, Tony? Get out of the way of your own film; if this film and script had any substance at all, it would have been drowned by all the chintzy style. But maybe that is what a director does when he has a miscast lead and incoherent script-- better off not making the debacle. All the cameos and trick editing can't mask the stupidity; films are still about TELLING STORIES at heart, and this one makes no sense whatsoever. Expand
