  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Rebellious and volatile, Domino Harvey (Knightley) abandons "normal" life to become a bounty hunter, joining the team of Ed Moseby (Rourke) and his partner Choco (Ramirez). The three become inseparable, and Domino becomes a bit of a legend as a female bounty hunter. When a reality TV producer (Walken) begins to document the lives of Domino and her partners, a job gone awry lands her some trouble with the FBI and the mob. Based on the real-life bounty hunter Domino Harvey. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture exhibits fantastically stylized imagery that is edgy and perfectly complementary to the storytelling. Colors are wildly saturated at times, while other times appearing very natural, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues, and deep blacks. The picture can be exceptionally detailed, with the many close-up shots revealing of fine facial textures. The fast-paced editing and stylizations are reminiscent of music videos (see the featurette Bounty Hunting On Acid for further insight on the visual style of the picture). Some pixelization is noticed at times, causing minor breakup of finer details. Edge enhancement is occasionally detected in higher contrast shots. (Suzanne Hodges)
