Domino

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Trashy, repellent action-comedy film inspired by British actor Laurence Harvey's daughter Domino's (Keira Knightley) improbable career as a model turned bounty hunter. She and her team members (Mickey Rourke and Edgar Ramirez) get involved in a double-dealing plot to recover a large amount of cash and catch the culprits, while being filmed by a reality-TV show producer (Christopher Walken). Director Tony Scott's nonstop camera moves, quick cutting and pretentious lighting effects make for a disjointed, confusing, ugly and hardly funny mess, left unredeemed by some fleeting use of religious imagery and a "good deed" ending. Pervasive violence and bloodshed, over-the-top profanity, rough language, some sexuality, partial nudity, suggestive movements and drug use. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.

Florian: American Catholic Blog The French novelist Leon Bloy once said that there is only one tragedy in life: not to be a saint. It may be that God permits some suffering as the only way to wake someone from a dream of self-sufficiency and illusory happiness.
