Boobs and Badassery: “Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For” Review

Sex, Violence, and Art. This pretty much sums up what you’ll see in this Sin City sequel…sounds like porn if you ask me.

Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller’s visually stunning “Sin City” graphic novels back to the screen in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is the follow up to Rodriguez and Miller’s 2005 groundbreaking film, FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY. {Source}

Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For Trailer

Okay first of all…Eva Green. She’s definitely the highlight of this movie, owning it like it was her little playground to showcase her sexiness and allure. From here on I’m going to give you a warning: she’s so good at being both badass and sexy that it’s hard not to get turned-on, and this is coming from me who’s already used to seeing a lot of boobs in movies. Only she rivalled Mickey Rourke’s performance and to be honest, the movie seemed to be less interesting whenever they’re not on screen.
You won’t want to watch this movie with your mom.
Like its predecessor, this movie got me engrossed at its unique color processing where most of the scenes are shown in black and white, while a few elements are highlighted with striking colors for emphasis and drama. The cinematography is a creative mix of live-action and comic-strip graphics, making almost every scene a visual spectacle.
The colors just speak of sexy and betrayal
Yes, visual spectacle indeed.
The plot revolved around several stories weaved into one, and in spite of earlier negative reviews, I actually found all of them to be engaging and unpredictable. Each of these sub-plots feature characters that are as equally fascinating as the storyline itself, thanks to the star-studded cast who did a spot-on portrayal of their graphic-novel counterparts. My personal favorite was “A Dame to Kill For” (with Eva Green, of course) not just because this is the part where we see the most nekkidness, but also because this is the only sub-plot where both Eva Green and Mickey Rourke are involved. This also has the most complex storyline, led by well-developed characters that are not one-dimensional.

Wait, Lady Gaga? Suddenly it’s the Telephone music video.
If there was one element of this movie that’s a bit of a turn-off, it’s the awkward action sequences that turned out to be too cartoonish and stylized. I considered that this may have been done in purpose to stay true to the graphic novel slash comic strip style of the film but personally, I felt that the badassery was slipping out of the movie every time killing off the baddies were too convenient for the protagonists.
“Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For” is a visual spectacle with just the right amount of nudity and violence embedded in a rich storyline. But seriously, Eva Green should already be enough reason for you to run to the cinema.
