Sin City is a dark, seedy, bloodily violent world that may not be the best place for everyone, but it's fun for those who belong there. You know who you are.

Like the original, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is episodic. But the 2005 installment's brutal short stories added up to a satisfying whole, while the sequel is an incoherent mess.

[A]ction-packed explosion of raw and visceral lust, corruption, vengeance and violence that dazzles, delights, intrigues, and celebrates the noir thrillers of the 30's, 40's and 50's on screen and on the pulp page.

Much as she does in the 300 sequel that premiered earlier this year, Eva Green demonstrates what a powerful asset she can be in otherwise subpar material.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is part entertaining cartoon noir, part violently fetishized relationship revenge fantasy. The first part is recommendable; the second part is vile.

The actors clearly know how to fit into this graphic noir world, and are a great reason to see this quasi-sequel.

Despite the opportunities granted by previous installments, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For regrettably features less of the same - both in style and substance.

Lacks the same sizzle as the original, making it a flat sequel that is all style and little substance.

As visually intoxicating as the film is on the outside, it's dimly vacant on the inside, with not even Eva Green's presence and charged performance able to hold the audiences attention.

With its simple dialogues and also because it is in essence a gorgeous-looking tableaux, enjoy this slick slice of cinema more for its visuals rather than anything else.

This is risk-taking, melodramatic stuff, but handled well.
