Domino — A brilliant if violent action movie — 9*/10

Domino is nothing short of brilliant. The action (except for the RV flipping head over heel), the editing, the score, the subject, and the ending. It also goes for Keira, Mickey, Lucy, and that priest. Awesome.

Most of the actors were pretty good, some less so, but all in all, nothing to complain about, really. The movie is heavy, so I had to take off a star, because it's not easily digested by everybody.

Beyond that, what can I say? The story line is gripping, even if the in depth material didn't bring any new stuff. I'm thinking about the mafiosi and the casino owner cross deal, as well as the FBI. The none linear story telling is not new, but well used. So is the staccato of images, and the off-color finish.

If you have no aversion to violence, it's a must see.
