Call me crazy, but I'm starting to suspect Frank Miller has some issues about women.
As most of you could have guessed, this film is incredible to look at. The visuals are simply outstanding.
I am a huge fan of Sin City.I consider it to be my second favorite comic book film behind Watchmen. I literally eat dark comic book movies for breakfast. I was always looking forward to this movie, but I was never over-excited for it. The fact it took 9 years to come out and the early mixed reviews (mostly negative), also put a little bit of a damper on my excitement. Nonetheless, I was still really looking forward to this.
I must say, I ate this film up. I certainly enjoyed the hell out of it. Between the hypnotic visuals, great…
Scandalous, over the top, and messy; Sin City: A Dame to Kill for is a worthy sequel to Sin City, bringing both the breathtaking visuals and brutal stories back in full force.
The cast is all fantastic, with Eva Green and Joesph Gordon-Levitt bringing their A-game to their respective roles. Eva Green in particular, is hypnotic and sensual; instantly earning her place in the best film-noir femme fatales. Many favorites, such as Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis make appearances, with the latter playing a role that he's already played before. If you catch my drift. Powers Boothe is deliciously evil, overloaded with power and constantly conniving. Jessica Alba is terrible as always, playing a stripper that is always clothed, which…
Back in 2005 when Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez teamed up to transition Miller's graphic novel Sin City into a live-action motion picture, it was hailed by critics & viewers alike as a groundbreaking cinematic feat that brought on screen something never done before, never seen before & never experienced before. Nine years later arrives its long-awaited sequel & it isn't as bad as its reception reflects.
Maybe it was my low expectations due to early disappointing reviews that did the trick but I had a wonderful time with this film as it has the style that made its predecessor an instant classic, the stories are fairly good & although it lacks the freshness of the original, it still makes up for one entertaining ride.…
Noir-November Challenge! Movie #43
The visuals were equally as impressive as its predecessor! The action, violence and kill ratio were increased! The film took on a much darker atmosphere!
For these reasons alone you got MORE than your moneys worth of movie entertainment!
What was absent from the sequel was the way too cool factor that was established in the original through the characters Hartigan (Bruce Willis), Marv (Mickey Rourke) and Dwight (Clive Owen). In the sequel these characters are less animated and more subdued!
Another thing absent was the comic book factor in the original where Marv for example was involved with several violent scenes that reminded me of Roadrunners Wile Coyote falling off a cliff and getting an…
What a fine sequel this was! Despite losing some of the freshness and amazement of the first installment, Frank Miler and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was just as vibrant, stylish and darkly funny. Mickey Rourke’s character continued to be my absolute favorite one of the bunch as he always inserts a great dose of excitement and twisted humor in all the segments he’s in. Jessica Alba’s involvement was much more interesting and powerful this time around for me. Also, I thought all three story arcs were quite compelling and nicely put together. Sometimes the pacing can be a bit of a slow burn, but nothing too distracting. Overall, I have to say I’m satisfied with the sequel and the final result was certainly worth the long wait.
This just so happens to be my 300th watched film this year...
I guess this couldn't have possibly lived up to the hype that brewed deep within my soul during the agonizing nine-year wait since the first Sin City film - although, not saying it still didn't satisfy to a decent extent.
Loved the entire cast, both new and old; the awesome over-the-top action; and, of course, the triumphant return of those astonishing visuals. My main problems were a couple seemingly missed opportunities here and there, interesting characters being unfortunately underused and there were a few times throughout the film that seemed a bit too disjointed -- but then Eva Green would show up onscreen naked for the sixth time…
Like a 13-year-old boy having a wet dream during THE BIG SLEEP.

So damn manly.
Men going around smashing other men. Big muscly scary men. Pulling each other's eyes out, throwing them through windows, kicking them in the manhood. The manliest place to kick a man.
Sure, the women get to jump around and have fun murdering too – "strong female characters"? – no, they're without exception motivated, defined even, by the big muscly scary men they're in love with.
Nothing original, nothing emotional, nothing clever. Lots of face-smashing.
It looks nice, though.
Visuals are still stunning but inconsistent! Mickey Rourke is still great but Jessica Alba still can't act! A Dame To Kill For could have been one amazing film that can actually rival its predecessor, but unfortunately it failed. Sin City has lost its magic. All those machete films have destroyed Rodriguez. You get to see Rourke crush a skull with his bare hands though so I guess this film is, in a way, still cool.
Just in case you missed that:
Mickey Rourke crushed a human head with his bare hands. Mickey Rourke. Bare fucking hands.
Damn, still can't get enough of that opening credits. So majestic I peed a little. One minute I say it's bad the next I'm…
A lesser effort from what I thought was his groundbreaking Sin City, the almost 10 years in between dulls Sin City 2's possible impact. Doesn't contain the better material of the original. Also not as visually interesting, though some shots still were able to stand out. Rodriguez doesn't use color as well as in the original. Bruce Willis' presence in the movie is a mistake, I think; it just feels too tacked on and doesn't match the tone of the movie or the original (in which I mean the whole "ghost" thing). Clive Owen is the better Dwight, so that doesn't help, either. I love Marv, but I think he's used too much here. The stories also don't fit together as well as the first three stories from the first movie feel. I think Rodriguez just took too much time to revisit Sin City.
The residents of Sin City are back for their encore, this time in a prequel/sequel that fills in a lot of the backstory for the neo-noir original. The time frame stretches from after police detective John Hartigan's suicide to a couple of years prior to murderer Dwight McCarthy's return to Old Town.
Since Hartigan is already dead by this time, Bruce Willis has to reprise his character as a ghost that watches over stripper Nancy Callahan, again played by Jessica Alba. However, because all the events in this film predate the electrocution of the story's #1 hell-raiser Marv, Mickey Rourke is back and badass as ever, if looking a bit older even in full make-up. And Josh Brolin was able…
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the sequel to Sin City from (oh lord… it’s been that long?) 9 years ago. It’s a film noire meets comic book in dialog, action, and appearance… dialog is hard boiled cliches, over the top tough-guy speak, that the actors sometimes pull off and other times don’t. It contains multiple interlocking stories about crime, criminals, anti-heroes, low-lifes, and killer hookers. One of the stories was a direct sequel to the events of the previous movie. Some of the stories are good and some are not so good and the problem is the best story (that the film is named for) ends well before the rest of the movie… which wasn’t nearly as…
if this was mostly JGL’s plot line i probably would be a lot more forgiving but this is incredibly bad and shallow. frank miller should befriend some women
Marv is a pretty All-Time character.
Eva Green and Josh Brolin are the true stars of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which is ironic when you consider that their story overshadows and disrupts the pace of the rest of the film.
Güzel film ama ilk filmin üstüne bu yapılmaz
Wasn't as bad as everyone says it is compared to the first movie. Eva Green ❤
confusing raw sex appeal
There's something off here...9 years off to be exact. It's more of the same, so what was refreshing about the first one kinda seems lost on this one.
P.S. Rosario Dawson can act her way out of a box.
Aside from a few lucklustre scenes (hint: the one with Piven), Sin City: A Dame To Kill For isn't what the critics said as bad. It isn't bad at all, at best it can match the first, but not on par definitely. We get more Marv action which I love because I love Mickey Rourke as Marv and Brolin's Dwight isn't awful, he definitely carried Clive Owen's legacy. Jessica Alba finally gets his own segment and Levitt's story is interesting, albeit sad.
For the visuals and overall production, still topnotch with a few rough patches that needs more time inside the cooker. I get why this film flopped with the critics and audience alike, Sin City, when it first came out, it was nothing like it. When this came out, they've gotta make a comparison.
