More of Frank Miller's tales brought to life. (by joefrettsome)
I saw this film last night and I was not disappointed. Being a fan of the first film I went in with high hopes for this film as most people did after watching the first and it tells some other Frank Miller stories well.If you enjoyed the violence, great dialogue and overall aesthetic of the first one you'll love this film. One of the only parts that really bothered me was the recasting of Dwight which threw me off slightly as I wasn't expecting it. It also gets slightly confusing at times because some stories are set in the present and some in the past which can be hard to keep up <more>
with, but if you are paying attention properly you get the grasp of it after a bit. However overall I loved the film's over the top nature and comic book style and if you enjoyed the first one then you'll enjoy this one.
"Sin City: A Dame to Kill for" is everything the moviegoer with taste, dreamed for, and far more. I appreciated the perfect visuals of the first movie, however it was too ... dark. I don't like to watch movies, just to be told, that the world is a dark place, where you will be born, and eventually die.This time, though equally dark, and stylish, I really felt, the movie had something to say, that could move me. The movie's message is more: "The world is dark a place, where you will be born, and die, and if you struggle, keep struggling, maybe you will leave the world <more>
less dark, than it was before.So obviously, like part 1, it feels like a part 2 , it is not a feel-good-movie, some critics wrote about the first part, it is like a kick in the balls. The same is true for "A Dame to Kill for", maybe even more. However it is drop-dead-cool, and you will get something back in reward. It is no fun, no entertainment, no celebration of special-effects, it is like a hit in the face, it tells you that good people won't always have a happy ending, but that shouldn't keep you from being it.
A Terrific,Visually Stunning,Thrilling And Entertaining Sequel. (by jcbutthead86)
Sin City:A Dame To Kill For is a terrific,visually stunning,thrilling and entertaining sequel that combines fantastic direction,a great cast,a fine script and a memorable score. And while Sin City 2 isn't as a good as the original,it's a wonderful sequel that works as a memorable follow-up.Set before and after the events and stories in the first film,Sin City:A Dame To Kill For gives viewers four more thrilling and intense tales of Sin City.The original Sin City was a brilliant,unforgettable and groundbreaking Comic Book film and is one of my all-time favorite movies and seemed like a <more>
film that would get a sequel. After nine years comes the sequel Sin City:A Dame To Kill For and was it worth the wait? Yes it was because Sin City:A Dame To Kill For is a fantastic sequel that is an absolute blast from start to finish because whether it's the first film or Frank Miller's Graphic Novels I love the world of Sin City and with Sin City it was fun to return to the dark,Black and White Noirish world of Sin City and if you're a fan of the first film or Miller's book you will enjoy this worthy sequel to the first film. Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have given viewers a stylish sequel that right from the beginning gives viewers the same energy and thrills that made the first movie work in the first place and the whole time you're watching the film you can't take your eyes off of it. The movie works as a sequel and prequel combining two stories from Frank Miller's books A Dame To Kill For and Just Another Saturday Night and new stories written for the film The Long,Bad Night and Nancy's Last Dance where each story interconnects with one another. Sin City 2 also shows viewers that while this is still a sequel nothing has changed in Sin City,the Antiheroes are still tough and the bad guys are more vicious with violence all around and blood splattered with every functioning in a stylized Film Noir world that is amoral and dark with hard boiled attitudes. The Black and White photography is stunning and beautiful because while the audience see horrific things on the screen you can't look away because the movie is amazing to look at. In Sin City 2 we also see some of the known and familiar characters and faces from the first film such as Marv,Dwight,Hartigan,Nancy and others we also see new characters such as Ava Lord and Johnny with both characters who are fascinating and memorable. The Action and violence in SC2 is vicious and at times harsh and brutal matching the first movie and none of the violence is toned down or cut although SC2 isn't as gory as the first movie. The screenplay by Frank Miller is good and memorable giving the characters dialog and moments that is straight out of Film Noir although some the dialog lacks the creative style of the Graphic Novels. If there is one problem I have with SC2 it's the length of the movie which is 1 hour and 42 minutes. Where as the first film was 2 hours and 4 minutes,SC2 is much shorter and while 1 hour and 42 minutes isn't bad I would have loved for the movie to be ten to twenty minutes longer because with the exception of A Dame To Kill For which is almost 50 minutes and is the longest and best segment the other two of the four tales The Long,Bad Night and Nancy's Last Dance while wonderful and compelling are too short,rushed and feel like they both should have been longer at 30-35 minutes like the stories in the first film. I hope someday Robert Rodriguez releases a director's or extended cut because even though the movie is fine the way it is I wanted more. The ending of Sin City:A Dame To Kill For is fine in my opinion even though the ending will upset and divide some viewers as some will think the ending is anti-climatic and will interfere with the continuity of the first film but I think it works because of the story and tone of the Sin City universe. A good ending for this entertaining film.The cast is great. Mickey Rourke is excellent once again as Marv,with Rourke being charismatic and cool every time he's on screen. Josh Brolin is terrific as Dwight,with Brolin bringing an intensity to the role. Jessica Alba is amazing,sexy and at her best as Nancy,with Alba bringing an emotional depth to the role. Bruce Willis is great as Hartigan Joseph Gordon-Levitt is fantastic and memorable as Johnny,a cocky gambler. Eva Green is outstanding and beautiful as Ava Lord,the classic Femme Fatale and Dwight's ex-girlfriend. Powers Boothe sensational and menacing as Senator Roark,with Boothe commanding every scene he's in. Rosario Dawson is sexy and memorable once again as Gail,Dwight ex-girlfriend. Dennis Haybert replacing the late Michael Clarke Duncan is good as Manute,Ava's bodyguard. Christopher Meloni Mort ,Jeremy Piven Bob ,Jamie Chung Miho ,Ray Liotta Joey ,Stacy Keach Vallenquist ,Christopher Lloyd Kroenig ,Julia Garner Marcie ,Juno Temple Sally ,Marton Csokas Damian Lord ,Jude Ciccoella Lt. Lebowitz ,Jamie King Goldie/Wendy and Lady Gaga Bertha give good performances as well. The direction by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller is wonderful and stylish with Rodriguez and Miller always moving the camera and giving the movie and fine pace and look. Great direction,Rodriguez and Miller.The score by Robert Rodriguez is memorable and filled with energy like in the original. Good score,Rodriguez.In final word,if you loved the first Sin City,the graphic novels,Robert Rodriguez or Frank Miller,I highly suggest you see Sin City:A Dame To Kill For,a terrific and entertaining sequel that is not as good as the original but still a worthy and memorable follow to the first film. Highly Recommended. 9.5/10.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR 2014 ***1/2 Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Dennis Haysbert, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Christopher Lloyd, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, Marton Csokas, Jude Cicolella, Jamie Chung, Julia Garner, Lady Gaga. Slam-bang sequel to the mash-up of dynamic duo filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and graphic novelist Frank Miller's collaboration in adapting the latter's cult comic book to the big screen again with some new faces hello Gordon-Levitt as a <more>
charming lucky/unlucky gambler and old good ol' Rourke as the hulking pugilist avenging Marv in the seedy titular town of trouble. All sorts of crimes are boiling to a full roil including Brolin's Dwight replacing Clive Owen returning for some revenge from femme fatale Green ethereally lethal and stripper Alba wanting payback for the suicide of her beloved Willis brooding in spirit . Gruesome violence, duplicitous women and vice to spare, the film runs on full-tilt, high octane brio with the invaluable skills of Rodriguez who shot/cut and photographed the sleekly gorgeous black and white with slashes of vibrant color that only falters in going by too fast to savor the sordid proceedings at hand.
This blockbuster brings back the magic of the brilliant original (by kluseba)
The first "Sin City" was a revolutionary movie in my opinion in terms of its comic book style, violent film noir atmosphere and intriguing storytelling involving switches between several plot lines that were loosely bound together. While many mediocre American movies quickly got many unnecessary sequels, one of the very best Hollywood films of the past ten years had to wait more than nine years for its second strike to be released. This is also the reason for the rather disappointing sales figures as many younger fans of the original have grown older and forgotten about the first <more>
part, younger audiences might not have heard about the excellent original yet and worn-out superhero movies in the key of "Guardians Of The Galaxy" as well as the wave of exchangeable dystopian teenage flicks like "Divergent" are what younger audiences prefer to watch these days. Let me tell you that these people are missing out on a highly atmospheric, breathtaking and stylistic follow-up that brings back the magic of the original and only fails to beat it because this movie is slightly shorter and the four stories told in here are a little bit less original than the four ones told nine and a half years earlier. This being said, it would be a wise choice to watch the first movie again before you get to see its sequel because the new film refers to several events that have happened before in Sin City.The style and spirit of the movie has been copied many times after its original release in rather similar flicks like "V for Vendetta" 2006 , "Max Payne" 2008 and "The Spirit" 2008 which just proves how influencing the original was. That's why the sequel feels a little bit like one has seen similar stuff before but let's not forget that this franchise is the one that started this whole unique extravagant comic book style. If you like the aforementioned movies, you will also adore this movie that is hold in classic black and white with a few colourful parts here and there that make stand out certain body parts or objects. I'm still fascinated by this classic and yet revolutionary way to design a movie. The sinister and often sarcastic stories, the excellent soundtrack and the bleak characters that all have their dark sides add much to the gripping atmosphere of the movie. Especially the actors are doing an outstanding job in this movie. Mickey Rourke convinces as brutal yet charming outlaw, Josh Brolin excels as broken man with a raw appearance but a soft core who definitely makes me forget that his character was performed by Clive Owen in the first film, Powers Boothe delivers as antisocial, corrupt and pitiless politician and Eva Green perfectly portrays the sexy yet evil miss misery. Even the secondary characters like the suicidal Jessica Alba, the silent beauty and elegant killing machine Jamie Chung or the short role of Bruce Willis as a desperate ghost or guardian angel can entirely convince. The cameos of Lady Gaga and other famous people are also a nice addition to this film. The clash of all these characters leads to many brutal yet artistic fight scenes where the blood is flowing, explicit but honestly passionate dialogues take place and several scenes including explicit yet elegant nudity are shown. This is a highly entertaining mixture including lots of black humour and sarcasm, tons of over-the-top action sequences, some moments filled with extreme emotions and a solid base of tension and a high dose of sex appeal. Weak or conservative minds as well as young children should therefor definitely avoid this movie. In the end, if you liked the original "Sin City", you will also like its high above average but not classic sequel "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For". If you haven't watched these movie, you have definitely missed out on two of the most atmospheric, original and vivid Hollywood movies of the past ten years. Go and correct your mistakes of the past now. Along with the experimental crazy ride filled with star actors that was Luc Besson's "Lucy", this is by far the best movie of the not-so-young year 2014 for me. This is the only current movie franchise I definitely want to carry on, no matter if the majority misjudges this excellent movie and prefers to watch its trendy fast-food cinema. This kind of art isn't for everyone and this is what makes this so unique.
Not as good as the first one but still very solid and entertaining (by troymerig)
Let me begin by saying that the first Sin City is one of my favorite movies of all time. I thought it was an absolute blast to watch, and the filming style blew me away.A Dame to Kill For is the same type of movie as the first, but it is not executed quite as well. It may just be be cause the style lost some of its original appeal, but I thought it didn't live up to its predecessor. With that said, I still thought A Dame to Kill For was a great time at the movies. Everything about it was solid. It continued the action from the first and did not fail to keep me at the edge of my seat. And, <more>
Marv was his normal, b.a. self.A Dame to Kill for consists of two story lines that are prequels to those of the first Sin City and one that is a sequel. I felt that it delivered very well in its attempt to support what happened in the first movie. I would recommend re-watching the first one so that you're fresh for this. Sometimes you can forget the names if you haven't seen it in a while.Overall, this movie was great. If I had not seen the first Sin City, I would have been blown away.I give it a 8/10. A definite must-see.
OK, maybe this movie isn't aimed at "mature" audiences, but for adults looking for a trashy good time at the movies then you won't get a movie any better than this. If you want to see unrelenting brutality & most of Eva Green you will get your money's worth & then some. Green totally owns the "Dame" role that she was perfectly cast for. When her story ends the movie does drop off fortunately her story is most of the movie .The "Sin City look" is enhanced by 3D I normally avoid 3D & rates as one of the best uses of 3D I've ever seen. <more>
Fans like me of Miller's "A Dame To Kill For" comic book will be thrilled at it's obsessive loyalty to word & frame screen treatment. It looks fantastic! Maybe, I mean to say that Green looks fantastic. It's both. I don't get all the criticism of how this "look" has grown tiresome --not for me in 3D.All the actors in big roles to small look like they are having a sinful amount of fun, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt is almost as strong as Green in a new role in one the new stories written for the movie. If you saw "Looper" or "Inception" you already know that JGL can play a tough guy despite his physical size.Make no mistake this movie is a feature length Roadrunner cartoon for adults --emphasis on "adults"--with all of the ridiculous action & over- the-top violence that only a cartoon can get away with because of the way it's rendered. No kids, please: there is just enough gore that isn't so cartoonish to make it unfit for children. Like the first Sin City 9 years ago, this new Sin City is B-movie bliss. I still don't like Jessica Alba as "Nancy".
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, much like its predecessor, should really be considered a bad film. Yet its bizarre mixture of cartoonish ultra-violence, cheesy dialogue, and noire aesthetic come together to create something incredibly unique. It is also a film that makes good use of 3D, as at times it looks like you are staring at a three dimensional diorama of a comic book frame, and it is beautiful.The cast is strong, although with so many big names a lot of them only end up getting a few minutes of screen time. Mickey Rourke returns as Marv, and is clearly the heart of the movie, featuring <more>
in three of the four stories in major roles. Josh Brolin takes over for Clive Owen as Dwight, which works well given the darker tone in A Dame to Kill For. As for Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnnie, a newcomer to the franchise, Gordon-Levitt does well enough with the role, but Johnnie's story itself is rather forgettable. Jessica Alba returns as Nancy, and is both appropriately sexy and scary at the same time. The casting couldn't have been better.The plot itself consists of four loosely connected stories featuring the four lead protagonists respectively, it does feel a little rougher during the transitions between them compared to the original Sin City. The titular story, A Dame to Kill For, certainly stands out among the four, and fans will be more than pleased with this adaptation of one of the most beloved Sin City comics.Sin City: A Dame to Kill For may not be as innovative or as seamless as the original, but it is still a great, unique piece of cinema.Now I hope you don't mind me saying this... But this here is a film to kill for.
