It doesn't quite match the laughs of the first movie but it's still an entertaining buddy movie. It's more of the same and they know it, there are lots of in jokes regarding the previous movie and potential for a franchise and the 2 leads continue to work well together.
This was a good continuation of the Sin City story. It took me a while to get back into it but I don't think that is any fault of the film makers, it's a strange neo noir world full of striking visuals and a unique way of bringing 3 of Frank Miller's stories to the screen. Half an hour in though and you're back in this world and enjoying every bloody and violent minute of it. Eva Green is particularly hypnotic as the dame to kill for of the title. Well worth seeing if you're a fan of the original.
As far as remakes go this is pretty entertaining but if you're looking for a faster paced movie with some truly jaw dropping stunts then catch the original; District 13. A few changes have been made from the original plot but nothing earth shattering. The main attraction is watching David Belle run and jump around every scene with remarkable agility but even he seems to have slowed down a little since the original. If reading is an issue for you then watch this, otherwise check out the world cinema section in your video rental store and get D13
The best horror of 2014 comes from Australia. There is no gore or cheap loud jumps, just a slow build of tension and fear throughout. The real clever premise behind this film is that it's not just a fear of a mythical creature or a monster hiding in the cupboard, it also taps into a very real fear that most parents experience at some point. A refreshing addition to the horror genre, well worth seeing.
