My review of SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

August 27, 2014

I saw SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR tonight. It really wasn’t very good. What I liked about the original film, its effects, it being over-the-top, seemed to work against the sequel. Maybe it’s because I’m 9 years older, or maybe it’s because the techniques and style now just seem so stale and cheesy. I’m not sure. The sequel almost seemed like a parody of the original. It was just kind of boring. The one exception being Eva Green, who shows a flair for playing a black widow/femme fatale type, as well as showing off copious amounts of flesh. She shows much more skin than the most chaste stripper ever, Jessica Alba’s Nancy who, after two films portraying the character, never showed herself in less than her underwear or a bikini. Aside from Eva’s assets, SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, can be added to the ash heap of middling, disappointing, comic book-based movie sequels to really fun initial entries, along with RED 2 and KICK-ASS 2.
