Cool, ass-bombs. What more could you want?

Kirsty Marie (10 out of 10 )
I think this film was great until the end, then it turned sad. He died. But from all of that Dakota was really good in it.

charida tolerson (10 out of 10 )

Really quite stunning!

Denzel put out a 12 out of 10 performance. I still watch the movie today, it does not bore me after 7 watches! One day I will do a performance like that!

Raven (10 out of 10 )
This movie was amazing and the ending was rather sad. But still a fantastic movie.

rich (10 out of 10 )
Best film. Saddest ending ever.

johnny (10 out of 10 )
Haven't seen better in years. Classic revenge story brought up to date with style. Seen it 3 times, liked it more each time.

vanessa (10 out of 10 )
I absolutely love this movie and the script. I can never get enough.

danielle (10 out of 10 )
This movie is great. Outstanding performances, really sad. I actually cried.

jenny (10 out of 10 )
Watch it at least once a month. Probably one of denzel's best performances. Beginning might get off to a slow start, but it completes the movie. A movie you never get tired of watching.

Lucas (10 out of 10 )
This movie is an awesome story. Full of drama, revenge and sacrifice. Probably one of Denzel's best performances.

viktor (10 out of 10 )
Words fail me for this movie. A masterpiece.

Si Venda (8 out of 10 )
Pretty damn cool, not sure if it's a 'masterpiece'. This is one of those films that grows with each viewing and doesn't get boring after the first few times, I was a bit unsure at first but now I love it. The only thing I still need a bit of convincing about is the standard Tony Scott editing and shooting style, it can just get a bit annoying sometimes. Anyone agree? Also, is 'Domino' worth seeing?

Steven (10 out of 10 )
And we are about to get Biblical. I'm happiest when I'm griping about something I don't like about a screenplay, but in this case, I'm dry. This is simply a fantastic piece of writing in every respect. Brian Helgeland's characterization is virtuoso and the relationships he builds (most notably of course being Creasy and Pinta) progress so naturally and beautifully it almost seems as if they're not even being "written"; they're just so alive. I don't think there's a single line of dialogue that doesn't ring true. I've read this screenplay probably nine or ten times now and my printed copy is so bookmarked, I've started to lose track of my own notes. Especially noteworthy: Creasy's introduction; watch how little time it takes for you to get a nearly complete feel for him - beautiful descriptive economy. Also, the scene setup preceding Pinta's kidnapping: Helgeland started laying the pipe for this while the credits were still rolling. When it happens to Pinta, it's positively terrifying. Oh, Si Venda, if Scott's shooting/editing annoyed you in this movie, don't even touch Domino. It'll trigger an epileptic fit. Aside from that, Domino was just a terrible flick. Two hours you'll never get back.

Anthony P. (10 out of 10 )
Got to love them ass-bombs, that's the best thing I've ever seen someone do to interrogate a guy. That sucks that people really get kidnapped like that though.

courtney (10 out of 10 )
Fantastic film, nothing negative to say about it. Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning give superb performances. The end breaks my heart every time I watch it. Truly one of the best films I've ever seen.

goodguysVSbadguys (10 out of 10 )
Whoa! This was absolutely stunning. I liked the movie. I saw it a few years ago and I liked it. But, this screenplay. Is completing beyond belief. I've read hundreds on top of hundreds of scripts. This is definitely one of the top two. If not the best I've ever read. It is completely flawless and breath taking. Helgeland is one of a kind.

Robyn J. (10 out of 10 )
This movie is the GREATEST EVER. It helps that they used Denzel and Dakota. They rock. Really this movie has its sad times but people should know what is really happening all ove the world. This movie was a good start! WATCH IT.
