Domino (2019)



Critic Consensus: A rote thriller whose few flourishes serve as bittersweet reminders of its director's glory days, Domino continues a streak of DePalma disappointments.

Critic Reviews for Domino

All Critics (72) | Top Critics (19)

Underfunded, sketchily written, and heavily cut (maybe one reason the writing seems sketchy), Brian De Palma's Domino still puts contemporary thrillers to shame.

It's hard to imagine any critic-myself included-suggesting we're looking at an all-time great finale. But I did laugh out loud while feeling liberated, guilty and disgusted for doing so. DePalma's still got it.

June 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Running at just 89 minutes but stilted and gangly enough to feel twice that long, Domino never feels like an actual film.

June 5, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

In Domino, De Palma's virtuoso gifts are at odds with Petter Skavlan's rudimentary scenario... its current form, it fails to generate the dense, volatile atmosphere needed to bring Skavlan's pulp fiction to life.

June 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The creative exhaustion is palpable, a near-total artistic disinterest. You can almost hear the director doing that impatient "get on with it" thing with his hand whenever the actors are emoting.

June 3, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Even when we can tell what's going on in "Domino," there's a sense of the tail of De Palma's intentions wagging the dog of a plot.
