Her name is Domino Harvey, and she is a bounty hunter. What you may not know is that Domino was a real person, daughter of actor Laurence Harvey (of Manchurian Candidate fame) and a model turned bounty hunter. The Domino played by Keira Knightley is based on the real one, but only loosely. Initially, we're plunged into the middle of a shootout, but just as that starts to get interesting, the realization sinks in that this is going to be one of those films that hooks you with an exciting first scene, then rewinds to the beginning. About halfway through, it stops being an overly narrated biopic and starts becoming a heist movie. But complications ensue, especially when mafia interests enter the picture. Director Tony Scott generally makes disposable, testosterone-heavy entertainment, but perhaps realizing that he was never more acclaimed than when collaborating with Quentin Tarantino on True Romance, he has now teamed up with writer Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko). The combination is not as natural.
