Based on the true story of Domino Harvey, who is the daughter of film actor Laurence Harvey. Tired and unsuited to the pretentiousness of her high-society Los Angeles life, Domino leaves the glitz behind her and sets off to become a bounty hunter. She quickly falls under the wing of veteran hunter Ed Mosley and his crew, becoming an unlikely natural in the art of bounty hunting. But things heat up when a gang of masked men begin a series of armored car heists. Before long the mob, a crazed TV producer, the FBI and a terminally ill child have all got caught up in the crazy situation.

*** explicit conversation ***

You have a fondness for tattoos. You've been staring at my goldfish (tattoo on her neck) all afternoon.
-It's a koi (コイ,) actually. The Japanese refer to them as shiro muji (シロ ムジ,) which, translated, means "white... and nothing else."
Do you know why I really became a bounty hunter?
-Because of cxnts like me?
It kills you that while I'm coming into my own, you're stuck in some dead-end marriage. Or, worse yet, an unfulfilling job.
-I'm not married. And I love my job.
Where are you hiding your tattoo? Is it on your ankle? No. Or is it somewhere else? Is it somewhere nasty? You want to know? I'm picturing. I'm picturing something... picturing something delicate, like a rose, or... or a hummingbird. Or, no. Maybe it's the name of a man that you can't bring home to Daddy. No. No, I'm completely wrong, aren't I, Taryn? Oh, God. See, I bet... I'm thinking... that when you go to sleep alone tonight... it's my pxssy you'll be dreaming of.

Mescaline. With each passing second, reality eclipsed into the asphalt horizon. Soon, the mescaline was

What background should someone have if they want to go into bounty hunting?
-How does jail sound? So, tell me, do you boys hunt?
I killed a... I killed a squirrel... once.
-Well, let me tell you something. Once you hunt a human being, you'll never hunt an animal again.

They said you tried to pass your granddaughter off as Kee Kee down at City Terrace Community Hospital. They said you forged the age on the application for some sort of operation.
-Motherfxckin' HMOs don't cover grandchildren. Now what am I supposed to do? That fxckin' operation is $300,000. Where am I gonna get the money, Pat?
You should've thought about that before you became a grandmother.

It's not unusual for someone like you... pampered her whole life... to indulge in drugs as a coping mechanism. Not living up to your expectations. Certainly not up to your mother's.

The, um... DMV is the de facto conduit for all humanity, and every human being that we track down has a record in the DMV database. Uh, whether it be LAPD, Social Services, the Credit Bureau, or the FBI, they all use the DMV's database as their hub.

Choco grew up on the streets of Venezuela. When he was four years old, he stabbed another kid in the eyeball with a pencil. There were wires crossed somewhere in his soul.

Um, and I recommend speaking in short sentences because he has the attention span of a ferret on crystal meth.

-Why would a... delicate little thing like you want to be a goddamn bounty hunter?
I want to have a little fun.

The case laid out at the opening scene:

36 hours ago, $10 million was stolen from an armoured car that was subsequently found abandoned at the Hoover Dam. The driver's name was Locus Fender. We know that he was in on the heist. We know that he was in on the heist. Is it true that you were hired to track down and capture the thieves and then deliver them to Drake Bishop, owner of the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino?

That's my best friend. His name is Choco. He's always fancied me, but too shy to ever do anything about it.
===
That's Ed Moseby, the most legendary bounty hunter in all of Los Angeles. He's my boss, my mentor, the father I never had.
===
Domino: I've never killed anyone. I hope to never kill anyone, even if they deserve it. My agenda is to kick ass and secure the bounty. If I'm on this side of the law, I can live the low life and avoid jail. I can live the nasty and not do time for it. That's called the best of both worlds. As for that other world, that 90210 world, it's not for me.

College was even worse. Mum convinced me to join a sorority. It was all fun and games at first. Then the hazing started.

Sounds like we got a negro Deep Throat here. Right?

What an unusual real life character, along the same genre as Patty Hearst. No doubt a highly fictionalized film with over the top violence, stunts featuring locations as Bonnie Springs Ranch and Stratosphere tower in Vegas. Knightley continues to surprise with diverse roles outside the box. ***Don't watch the last deleted scenes if you do not want to see a hot topless make out session.*** Only 31 years old, she already performed in numerous adaptations of classic novels, Bend It Like Beckham, Pirates of the Caribbean, A Dangerous Method, Jack Ryan, Begin Again etc. Per wiki: Domino Harvey (7 August 1969 – 27 June 2005) was a British bounty hunter in the United States, notable within that field for being female and from a well-to-do background. Harvey's fame was increased posthumously by the 2005 release of the film Domino, which was loosely based on her life, with Harvey portrayed by Keira Knightley, with supporting actors: Mickey Rourke, Christopher Walken, Lucy Liu, Edgar Ramírez, Delroy Lindo, Jacqueline Bisset, Jerry Springer, Tom Waits ...

The only thing i like about this acid styled turd is the bone chilling soundtrack.By the time i saw Tony Scott's usual shootout closing out the end of this so-called true story based thriller,it was too little,and too late to impress me with the DEPOPULATION of a bunch Narcissistic and Arrogant people i really don't care about as characters at all whatsoever period.This is the kicker though:Some of this cast i actually like as Hollywood slaves,but i digress.

Do you know the old saw "If infinite monkeys were in a room with infinite typewriters, they would eventually pound out all of William Shakespeare's works in their correct entirety? Some of those monkeys escaped unnoticed and wrote the script and then directed this cinematic equivalent of a freeway pile-up. This is purported to be the "true" story of Domino Harvey, bounty-hunting hottie and all-around tough girl and her adventures from L.A. to Vegas and you can have it. Not even an all-star cast can save this tragic misstep of a movie, there is no one alive capable of distilling in easily understandable form what the last, oh, hour or so of this movie is about. I had to eject it as it made my brain hurt. The running time was too long by half. No, wait! It was too long by whole. Just a really awful, smug, self-indulgent misery. Leave this one alone!
