I recommend this movie for everyone to watch. I believe no one will be able to resist the temptation of appreciating the work of Neil Gaiman. Director Matthew Vaughn manages to justify in visual the story of young Tristan (Cox) who embarked on the journey to retrieve the fallen star, Yvaine (Danes) to win the heart of Victoria (Miller). But Tristan is not the only one looking for the star. Evil witch Lamia (Pfeiffer) wants the star's heart to make her young again, and the sons of the deceased king (O'Toole). They also encounter the pirate Captain Shakespeare (De Niro) and his crew and the merchant Ferdy (Gervis).
Some would simply say that the movie is one rollercoaster ride that will leave some things hanging but if you just let the movie sink into your heart and appreciate the medieval-like atmosphere of the film, then this will be a magical experience that will make you see a different fairy tale story about courage and love.

I've been interested in this movie since it's released in 2005. Unfortunately, I was not able to watch this until yesterday evening.
This is the story of the testosterone-driven bounty hunter Domino. Played wonderfully by Keira Knightly alongside Mickey Rourke and Lucy Liu.
How can this daughter of well-known socialites turn to a life of dangerous pursuit. Sometimes people are just born to look for their own selves. Not all desire the life of privilege and wealth, just the exhilarating experience of the unexpected. Whether you are fated to live or to die at the moment.
