A flashy action pic with worrying implications
Domino is a flashy action movie, shot in grainy "heightened reality", in which Keira Knightley plays an ice-cool, beautiful, rich girl who drops out and becomes a bounty hunter. Now flip over to the DVD extra and meet the real Domino Harvey: a shy, gauche woman who reveals far more about herself in the first 10 seconds than this movie does in 2 hours. Tragically, she died shortly before the movie was released. Domino may be "based on true events" but the DVD extra reveals a very liberal interpretation of that phrase. Taken on its own, this is an OK, watchable movie - but it reveals nothing about why the real Domino Harvey's life turned out the way that it did, and the overall impression is of Hollywood's exploitation of a vulnerable woman which leaves a nasty after-taste.Was this review helpful?
