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.
Like a 13-year-old boy having a wet dream during THE BIG SLEEP.

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…
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…
"Looks like Christmas."
To say Robert Rodriguez has fallen off a bit recently would be an understatement. In my opinion his last good film was the original Sin City back in '05 (which was a damn good film). But, since then, Rodriguez just hasn't been the same. Now, I didn't see Shorts or the new Spy Kids , but the piss-poor reviews didn't help convince me to check them out. And his Machete movies are...well, the less said about them, the better. So, I cautiously went into this one. Sadly, it didn't even meet my modest expectations and turned out being one of the weaker films released this year so far, despite the great visuals.
We start off with a…
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.
Just watched this for the first time since it came out and my attitude hasn't budged more than an inch in the direction of enjoying it. When it isn't just trying to grossly replicate the stark visuals of the original, it pads its time with long, redundant nude shots and strip club scenes where we see more variety in Jessica Alba's erotic outfits than anything else. and goddamn does she hit the pole in this movie, like I'm not even kidding every 10 minutes the movie would wind up back at the strip club to see Nancy grinding her ass on the stage with disgusting lowlifes watching. The whole movie is horny as fuck and usually that isn't really a…
I’m here for Eva Green.
Only one star for Eva Green.
no sin, this movie is kosher
I get it if you hated the first film and so also hate this. But I don't get people who love the first film but shit on this. Sure it's a step down (what sequel isn't?), and the timeline hurts your head a bit...but substantially, they're the same. The visual style, the excessive violence, the gratuitous nudity and casual misogyny...all of this was in the first one too! And it's wild that in 2014 Eva Green was in two sequels to Frank Miller adaptations. And I'm pretty sure she strips off in both.
A stacked cast, the same director and visually arresting cinematography could not save the sequel to one of my favorite comic book films, Sin City. Nobody cares at this point. They waited close to a decade to make this and I can’t believe this is what they came up with. In my opinion, the ending to the first film left nothing that needed to be followed up, so a sequel is entirely unnecessary. This is both a prequel and a sequel, convoluting the timeline since very little of the story is consistent with the events of the first film. The narrative doesn’t work nearly as well since there isn’t a main theme going through each of the segments and each…
“Looks like trouble.”
Oh my I forgot how dull this was.
From the overuse of narration that, despite being in the first film, is used here like the audience are, in parts, literally blind. The stories have little connective tissue and are quite dull, no matter the continued style of the first film or its reuse of characters. Even the overabundance of violence and nudity is far less impactful or cheeky, it’s just in your face tits and blood (which is definitely favourable to the audience that are asleep during the narrative, and have only come to...). Horny for blood and a nude Eva Green? Then this is your film. Want a gripping, dark narrative with bold characters and a detailed world? Try the first film.
Jessica Alba is killer though, despite her narrative being an anti-dramatic toe end conclusion to her story.
Yuck. Yeah, I stand by my comments on the original Sin CIty and say this film series isn't worth the time. Every female character in this movie acts like Juno Temple does in every movie, which is why this film is misogynistic and gross. Just pass on this one unless you really like Frank Miller.
I don’t love the first Sin City film and I honestly only really watched this for Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who’s sadly only in it for a short amount of time) but I actually kinda enjoyed this film.
It’s not great by any means but it’s really well shot (honestly Robert Rodriquez should quit directing and just focus on cinematography) and the action scenes are cool.
The dialogue sucks and the stories are honestly not all that investing but it is a lot of stylish fun and I liked it for that.
I definitely don’t hate it, but it’s a damn shame so many actors couldn’t return. It feels wrong, you know? The film itself is just as good as the first, although I don’t care for Dwight’s story. I wish that there had been more tales like Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s. It’s new and interesting with some varying connections to some other characters. I feel that although I’m glad we get some closure to these tales, I don’t think it necessary for the film. I can read the graphic novels for that. I think it just would’ve worked better to see some new stories and some new faces, especially considering the amount of time between releases.
I don’t know what else to really…
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the twenty-seventh feature film listed in the Wikipedia filmography of Juno Temple. It’s the sequel/prequel to Sin City and is more or less the same movie all over again.
Nine years prior to the release of this film the first Sin City movie felt like a breath of fresh air to me. I haven’t seen it since though and this is my first time watching this movie. The two films feel very similar, both aesthetically and thematically, but fuck me if this didn’t feel like watching a horny teenager’s wet dream this time around. I don’t know whether I’ve matured as a human being or if this one’s just a hell of…
