Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

Perhaps it was comic book movie fatigue; perhaps it was sequel fatigue; perhaps it was a feeling of cash grabbing now that comic book films are the money making machines they are; or perhaps it was the fact that Robert Rodriguez’ last film was utter trash, but for whatever reason I was not looking forward to Sin City: A Dame to Kill for. Then I re-watched the first movie again (for the first time many years) in preparation for »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Three more stories from the vaults of Sin City as some of its twisted citizens get in too deep.

The sequel to Sin City has been a long time coming and in the wake of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, part of me wonders if it’s been too long. The stories we get on this adventure are the titular A Dame to Kill For, Nancy’s Last Dance, Just Another Saturday Night and The Long Bad Night. Each of the stories in themselves are interesting and A Dame To Kill For is clearly the »

Film Review: 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

25 August 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Nine years after the release of 2005's Sin City, directors Robert Rodriquez and Frank Miller (who also wrote the script) reunite for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014). Not much has changed, however. 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. Unravelling over four vignettes (two that have been ripped from Miller's own comic-books, and two that have been written specifically for the sequel, A Dame to Kill For adheres to the same template as its predecessor. The film opens once again with the grizzled figure of Marv (Mickey Rourke), abandoned at the roadside with no memory.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

I feel like I should temper this review by letting you know that I have been very excited for this film since its announcement. The casting announcements only heightened my excitement to the point that when I saw that my local cinema was doing a double screening of the original I leapt at the opportunity. I’ll say it now. I loved this film.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For gives the audience a great mix of old »

Meet The Murderous Men Of ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

25 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is a film that has been many years in the making. Critics and audiences alike went mad for Sin City when it was released way back in 2005. It had all the ingredients of a perfect film; it was gritty, violent, sexy and stylish. Finally back for round two, the film sees many familiar faces – as well as several new ones – once again inhabit the seedy world.

Yesterday we brought you a run down on all the lovely ladies that take up residence within the walls of the fictitious Basin City. Today we delve into the lives of the crooked criminals and valiant vigilantes that have both the X and Y chromosomes. The men of Sin City range from the good, to the bad, to the seriously demented, with the likes of Mickey Rourke, Jeremy Piven, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dennis Haysbert all on  board. »

Sin City's Robert Rodriguez "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting ability

24 August 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Rodriguez said that he was "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting skills.

The Sin City director first worked with the musician on Machete Kills, before offering her a cameo in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Rodriguez told E! News: "I told her she had to be in it [Sin City 2]... The camera loves her.

"She's a great performer. She's performed twice for me now and I was blown away by her discipline. She studied acting before she became a singer and you could really tell."

He continued: "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away from us in Austin. She was ready.

"She brought her own wigs! I said, 'We're not going to have time to make a wig for you.' She showed up, we did the scene, she knocked it out of the park and then she was back on tour. »

Box Office: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Back on Top, ‘Sin City 2′ Flops

24 August 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Teen girls and fanboys duked it out at the box office this weekend, with “Guardians of the Galaxy” getting the upper hand on newcomer “If I Stay” and scoring first place with a $17.6 million haul, according to studio estimates.

It was the second time that Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” came out on top, although two weeks separate its victories. It marks the first time this year that a film has topped the domestic box office in non-consecutive weeks.

Guardians of the Galaxy” has become the summer’s top-grossing domestic release and, with $489.5 million globally, has passed the final tallies of “Thor” ($449 million) and “Captain America: The First Avenger” ($371 million).

The relative weakness of this weekend’s crop of new releases benefited another holdover, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” which came in at second place with $16.8 million. The Paramount Pictures reboot has now made $145.6 million stateside after three weeks in theaters. »

Exclusive Cool Video: Fun F*cking Facts - Sin City

We're back with another Fun F*cking Facts (with less f*cking and more facts!), this time looking at Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's original Sin City. There's plenty of interesting tidbits in here, some of which may send you to google to do some more digging (Jessica Alba was once kidnapped??), some may leave you cringing, and some may leave you laughing, but overall they're pretty fun, silly, and not-so-hard to believe (Mickey Rourke quit a movie because »

'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' Review Roundup: Critics Mixed On Pulpy Noir Sequel

22 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, from co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, once again brings Miller’s graphic novels to the big screen.

A sequel to the visually stunning Sin City 2005, A Dame to Kill For blends two of Miller’s comic book stories with a pair of new tangential storylines. Once again, crime and violence anchor the plot for the movie’s cast of characters, which includes stripper Nancy (Jessica Alba) cop Hartigan (Bruce Willis), poker player Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the monstrous Marv (Mickey Rourke). Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green and Powers Boothe also star.

Critics are split on what to make of Rodriguz and Miller’s sequel, which comes nine years after their original critically acclaimed effort. The first film undeniably impressed with it’s unique look. The second time around, some feel as though »

Film Review: More Risqué ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Doesn’t Dare to Trailblaze Again

22 August 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sex sells, sure, but the film-noir sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” makes you feel dirty if you’re left thinking that’s enough.

Nine years since the visually groundbreaking, avant-garde hit “Sin City,” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s biggest mistake with their next incarnation is replacing the first film’s bloodthirsty impact with too much nudity.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The film is equally violent as it is naked, but we’ve almost become numb to such mutilation and it’s certainly part of this story. These talented filmmakers insult audiences by thinking Eva Green’s rabid libido and willingness to bare it all can outshine the film’s need to be otherwise compelling. She’ll satisfy the horny little boy or girl in you, but leave the mature man or woman in you really are intellectually unsatisfied.

In film and television, Green has clearly made a decision »

‘Sin City 2′ Misfires at Friday Box Office for Estimated $10 Million Weekend

22 August 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

According to early estimates, The Weinstein Co.’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” is practically dead on arrival.

Friday’s projections showed the sequel appeared heading for an opening weekend in the $10 million range at 2,894 sites — far below recent estimates of a $15 million launch — with a meager first-day gross of $3.6 million including a sparse $475,000 from Thursday night shows.

Despite TWC’s noir-drenched marketing campaign and the star power of  Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” is likely headed for fifth or sixth place. It currently trails Chloe Grace Moretz’s weeper “If I Stay,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” the launch of low-budget sports drama “When the Game Stood Tall” and possibly the second weekend of “Let’s Be Cops.”

The nine-year hiatus between the original “Sin City” and the sequel appears to »

Sin City Creator Frank Miller on the Future of Comics and Collaborating With Robert Rodriguez

22 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Comic-book iconoclast Frank Miller is his own best character. After his much-imitated, years-long run on Marvel Comics' Daredevil, he bullishly pushed the boundaries of how mainstream comics stories were told in milestone titles like The Dark Knight Returns, Ronin, and 300. His heroes are similarly self-assured beyond mere arrogance: They're above reproach, a standard that Miller maintains as a rejection of psychological realism. His comics often take place in decadent cities. But even in his Sin City comics, Miller maintains an undiminished — albeit deranged — sense of optimism and romance. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Robert Rodriguez's new "translation" of Miller's hyper-violent neo-noir comics, Josh Brolin plays a sucker that pines for Eva Green's vicious (and frequently naked) femme fatale with a little help from killer friends Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson. Vulture talked to Miller about how he stays optimistic, what the future of comics »

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Review: Ranking All the Reasons to Kill

22 August 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Once again co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," the visually striking follow-up to the 2005 hit, gets even more eyeball-popping the second time around -- literally, sure, but also because this time it's in 3D.

Acting as both a sequel or prequel depending on the story, the second "Sin City" follows a handful of storylines (some old, some created for the movie), all connected by that trademark heavily-stylized ultra-violence and the town's sleazy saloon/strip club. There's a typical Saturday night for Marv (Mickey Rourke), Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his ill-fated buy-in at a high-stakes backroom poker game, Dwight (now played by Josh Brolin) returning to both Old Town and the clutches of Ava Lord (Eva Green), and Jessica Alba's Nancy attempting to avenge the death of Bruce Willis' Hartigan.

So, as you might expect, a dame is far from the »

Coinciding with its U.S. release today, a new character poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has been released online featuring Lady Gaga as Bertha; check it out below, and if you’ve not done so already you can read our ★★★★ review of the film here…

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.
