Co-Directed by Writer Frank Miller and Cinematographer/Editor/Composer Robert Rodriguez, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is an action feast for fans of film noir, graphic novels and, of course, the original Sin City, which came out in 2005.
There are several stories that, eventually, all hang together, including characters from the original film, as well as new additions.
It’s the style of the film that, again, dominates. Sometimes characters are in black and white with key characteristics in color, like the gorgeous Eva Greene with ruby red lips and penetrating green eyes. Sometimes they look like they’ve been printed on the screen. It’s all very effective and all a lot of fun.
Though there is a lot of violence, it is stylized and only the most squeamish will find it too hard to take.
I liked this film more than the original and give it a 4 out of 5.
