by kris h. on 7/31/2006

This 2005 movie is a very energetic portrayal of the life of Domino Harvey, an enigmatic young lady who was born to actor Laurence Harvey. Domino was a fascinating person, who tried her hand at fashion modeling and living a "normal" life before deciding to eschew it for the highly exciting, highly dangerous life of a bounty hunter. We see a cursory review of her childhood years leading to the time she answers an ad for a bounty hunting seminar. This is much more than a biopic, however, as much of it revolves around an armored car robbery. Tony Scott's direction and style might not be to everyone's tastes, but I think the movie was quite good. Keira Knightley, as Domino, is superb as usual. The primary gripe I have about this movie is a scene that involves The Jerry Springer Show. While it provided most of the film's humor, it was entirely too long and detracted from the story because it was not on point. Otherwise, a raucous two hours.

True Story
Editors Note
Note The already larger-than-life story of Domino Harvey, a former Ford model turned bounty hunter, takes on mythological proportions in Tony Scott's (TRUE ROMANCE, MAN ON FIRE) fast-paced thriller. Unfolding in a nonlinear fashion as a bloodied Domino (Kiera Knightley) is interrogated by iron-faced Officer Taryn Miles (Lucy Liu), the film traces the trajectory of Domino's tumultuous life. Beginning with the death of her beloved father, the actor Laurence Harvey (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE), Domino develops into a hard-nosed, scrappy young woman who trains with nunchucks beside her mother's luxurious pool and responds violently to anyone who crosses her. Bored with the runway and the glamorous LA life, Domino shows up for a bounty-hunter seminar. Catching the "teachers" of the seminar as they try to cut and run with the proceeds, she manages to win their respect and joins their team. This consists of Ed Mosbey (Mickey Rourke), the tough-as-nails leader and Domino's surrogate father, and Choco (Edgar Ramirez), an impulsive Venezuelan who harbors a not-so-secret love for Domino. The three form a kind of family, working under Claremont Williams (Delroy Lindo), who "plays Charlie to their three angels." For a time they are unstoppable, even agreeing to let the slimy Mark Heiss (Christopher Walken) produce a reality-TV show about them, which is hilariously hosted by Ian Ziering and Brian Austin Green (BEVERLY HILLS 90210). But when Claremont orchestrates a complicated inside job in order to raise the money for his granddaughter's doctor bills, the precarious balance within the trio is disturbed. Tom Waits stands out in a cameo as a wise wanderer who advises the lost bounty hunters.
New York Times "[Scott's] filmmaking is always fast and loud, alternately intensely ugly and strangely beautiful to behold, while the stories he tells often fall into the alpha and omega extremes of the modern action movie: the smart-enough pop thriller and big-budget studio exploitation." 10/14/2005 p.E8
