Rated 1.0

Director Tony Scott and writers Steve Barancik and Richard Kelly concoct a fictional yarn about real-life model turned bounty hunter Domino Harvey (Keira Knightley), daughter of actor Laurence Harvey. Scott uses a jarring, fragmented, TV-commercial style to compensate for the jumbled mess of a story (something about $10 million and a gangster’s kidnapped son), and to obscure the fact that the characters all are repellent lowlife scumbags. The movie is relentlessly sadistic, and a closing title dedicating it “in loving memory” to Harvey (who died in June while awaiting trial on drug charges) seems like some sick joke. Knightley deploys a snarling bad-grrrl persona, and several good actors (Mickey Rourke, Christopher Walken, Delroy Lindo, Jacqueline Bisset, Dabney Coleman, etc.) go down with the ship.
