The film goes through its motions too quickly for its imagery to convey the irrepressible force of provocation.

Ultimately, this is... a flawed, more or less incomplete entry from an ageing master.

While the end result is certainly no masterpiece, it is still better than the average action potboiler...

The latest from (Brian De Palma) definitely feels burnt out - but at least the director’s delirious signature is all over it.

A film so crushingly irrelevant it's almost worth ignoring its very existence.

In (Domino), a personal revenge story line is subsumed by horrific visions of television-friendly acts of terror.

Plenty of evidence of a patch job is on display here, especially as the film actively yawns its way through a muddled plot...

De Palma's botched new terrorism thriller offers convincing evidence that we're all living in a Brian De Palma movie now, which renders his new film irrelevant.

It's sad to see a director at the bottom of his game.

The creative exhaustion is palpable, a near-total artistic disinterest.

It’s sketchy and contrived and, at times, incomprehensible...

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

The political intrigue is stale and stereotyped, the characters might as well be windup toys, and the gore is repulsive and gratuitous.

Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but Domino dishes it up as a sloppy mess of warmed-over clichés.

A counterterrorism thriller offering just slightly more excitement than the average TV police procedural.
