With the element of originality gone, this trip to Sin City just ain't as gripping as the first. But you gotta admire its style.

No, it's not as good as the original, but this still finds Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez doing their best to make a worthy follow-up, and they come surprisingly close.

It's taken nearly 10 years for filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and graphic novelist Frank Miller to get around to making this sequel, but it was worth the wait because the technical advancements make this second triptych of stories even more visually stunning.
August 26, 2014
Graphic novelist Frank Miller once again shares directing credit with Robert Rodriquez toward creating a sequel that is every bit as narratively gripping and visually stunning as their original "Sin City" (2005).
August 26, 2014
Unmistakably an exercise in style over substance.

Sin City is by no means a place you'd wish to book a family holiday, but 102 minutes immersed in this melancholic world does just the trick.
August 24, 2014
worth seeing for its visual splendor, and for that fearless, unapologetically scene-chewing performance from Green that encompasses the archetypal Madonna and Whore, as well as the endless depths of the rage endemic in the exploited female.
August 24, 2014
Not as fresh as the original, but there's still plenty to enjoy in this stylized comic book noir.
August 24, 2014
Rodriguez and Miller trade in disreputable teenage kicks and they lay the style on with a trowel.
August 23, 2014
Not much has changed in Sin City, but if you enjoyed your last visit more of the same should be more than enough.

Story-wise, it doesn't quite hold up to the original 'Sin City.' But 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' will still entertain fans of the original film that dazzled grownup viewers with its violence and the look of Miller's graphic 'noir' novels.

Sex sells, but this film-noir sequel makes you feel dirty if you're left thinking that's enough. And if you count how many bullets are fired and compare it to how many holes you can shoot through its plot lines, the latter outnumbers the former.
August 22, 2014
As a whole and complete anthology, A DAME TO KILL FOR falls short of the first.
August 22, 2014
The noir fatalism seems secondary to the imagery, whereas in Sin City the imagery served the ideas.
August 22, 2014
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is a jumbled but still enjoyable followup that, for most moviegoers, arrived on the scene too late.
August 22, 2014
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is a known commodity that is pretty much on par with the original. At the very least, seeing the smoldering Eva Greene melt the screen is worth the price of admission.
August 22, 2014
The tone is almost completely humorless, unless you factor how over-the-top the noir homage gets. It's like the whole movie is spoken in Batman voice.
August 22, 2014
Frank Miller's brand of knuckle-dragging machismo is not exactly my cup of testosterone, but this "Dame" is a wonder to behold.
August 22, 2014
Green has affected shades of noir in previous roles, but as the scheming Ava Lord, she is a terrific femme fatale, luxuriating in Miller's Chandler-esque dialogue while devouring the scenery and every inhabitant in it.
August 22, 2014
Always a pleasure to observe, despite its unsavory aspects, so artfully artificial... Style is no problem. A reason for this movie besides it is a mystery.
