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.
My full review on Little White Lies: www.littlewhitelies.co.uk/theatrical-reviews/sin-city-2-a-dame-to-kill-for-27569
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…
Even though I really liked the first one, I never had any desire to watch this. Maybe it's because I didn't like the years later sequel to 300 starring Eva Green, so I figured I wouldn't like the years later sequel to this Frank Miller movie starring Eva Green. Netflix had it marked as going away at the end of the month so I checked it out.
It really doesn't measure up to the first one for me.
First thing I noticed were the visuals. While the colours, saturation, and noir high key lighting things over the top in the original, it felt different in this. Like... faker if that makes sense. One of the girls has this white ribbon…
تكملة احداث لا بأس بها ، لكن لم تروى بشكل الصحيح كثير من الامور غير منطقية وغير محبوكة الاحداث
من بين الثلاث قصص الموجودة لم تكن الا واحدة ممتعة ومع ذلك كانت ايضا غير منطقية في بعض نقاطها
هناك عدة من الامور التي قللت من جودة هذا الجزء
الاحداث بشكل عام ليست ممتعة او مترابطة، على الاقل واحدة منها كان ممتع
الموسيقى لم تعطي نفس الاجواء السابقة ، بل تقريبا كانت معدومة
بعض الشخصيات لم يبرر وجودها في القصة و بعضها كان من المفروض انه ميت
واسوء شيئ في الفيلم هي النهاية، كانت سخيفة و غير منطقية ابداً
بشكل عام كان من الافضل لو لم يصنع هذا الفيلم
Unpopular opinion: i really liked this film
Almost everything about this film is poor. Eva Green is truly the best part. A few of the performances are decent otherwise but the world just doesn’t feel the same as the first one. Hard pass. Frank Miller should not be allowed to direct
Not as good as the first one but still great. the sin city series are the best comic book movies of all time none of that bullshit MCU shit

Jumping into Sin City: A Dame to Kill For right after finishing a rewatch of the first was quite interesting. As soon as it started, things flowed very smoothly, as if I were watching the same film. And visually, it is, and the backdrops and CGI are much smoother and more polished than…
Taking another look at the original and its sequel, I will admit this sequel came much later than it should have. The first film was released in 2005 to generally good reviews and actually made money.
Originally this film was slated for a 2013 release along with "Machete Kills", another Robert Rodriguez film. It got bumped a year into 2014, and I saw it a few times in theaters. It wasn't as popular as the original and future plans for another "Sin City" movie were scrapped. Right now, there's a "Sin City" series stuck in development hell.
Alright, so the one thing this one doesn't have that the original had was the great storylines. This one has one GREAT storyline…
Do you like the first Sin City? If so, this is for you. If not, stay far away. It’s really just more of the same. Black and white, with splashes of color. Highly stylized action. Booze, broads & bullets. With new tales to tell that happen both before and after the first film. I’d also say this film may even look better than the first. It’s truly gorgeous.
Something I enjoy from the flicks that probably goes unnoticed is the score by Robert Rodriguez. It’s got touches of the noir jazz you’d expect, but is also drenched with heavy and pulsating riffs. Kind of sounds like a jazzy take on the John Wick soundtracks. I dig it. I also had no…
the original still remains Superior, but this one has Lady Gaga....The Unstoppable Force. also the only story line i really care about is hartigan and Nancy, like if someone made a film just with that storyline i would pay $$$ bitch
„Sin City: A Dame to kill for“ ist dem ersten Teil in jeder Hinsicht unterlegen. Die einzelnen Geschichten sind allesamt schwächer, da sie mich emotional kaum abgeholt haben. Das hatte der erste Teil mit seinen Rache-Dramen und blutigen Liebesgeschichten noch deutlich besser hinbekommen.
Leider ist auch der Cast im zweiten Teil weniger charismatisch. Zwar macht ein Josh Brolin hier eine gute Figur, aber Jessica Alba kann schauspielerisch einfach nicht überzeugen. Leider bekam diese hier dennoch reichlich Screentime. Über Eva Green rede ich gar nicht erst.
Wenn dann auch noch die Inszenierung und die Effekte etwas schlechter ankommen als im ersten Teil, dann ist das doch sehr enttäuschend.
Fazit: „Sin City 2“ ist wirklich kein schlechter Film. Aber für mich muss er sich mit dem ersten Teil Messen. Diesen Vergleich verliert Teil 2 viel zu deutlich. Schade.
This movie hurt my soul. A Dame To Kill For is my favorite Son City book and this movie didn't do it justice.
La voz de 6AM de los personajes, la noche eterna, la sangre bien roja. El comic se encuentra con el Film Noir clásico y sale esta obra de arte. En la primer Sin City me sorprendía el papel de Tobey Maguire, en esta Joseph Gordon Levitt se consagra.
