    ★★★★

    A stylish, action packed and incredibly cool thriller, Tony Scott's Dominio is arguably his most underrated work, hitting you like a freight train and not slowing down. Based loosely on a true story of an English model who goes to America to become a bounty hunter, Domino follows Keira Knightley's titular character and looks at her journey as to how she became who she is.
