Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review

You can’t deny the artistic abilities found in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, but it looks like Frank Miller may have lost his storytelling abilities to his ego. There’s something to the idea of fusing a film from the largely unconnected stories that might exist as “issues” of a graphic novel, but this isn’t how you make such a theory work.

The film kicks off with Marv (Mickey Rourke) walking us through an encounter that simply serves as an explanation of who he is, and puts him into the world so that we recognize him when he shows up later. This takes us to Dwight (Josh Brolin), and Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who will each have their turns being the focus of stories that don’t connect to each other.

Dwight has his world disrupted when Ava (Eva Green), an ex, »

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

29 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | 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 »

Marv, Sin City 2, and the end of a movie franchise?

29 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Did Sin City: A Dame To Kill For rely too much on Mickey Rourke's character, Marv? Robert offers his spoiler-filled view...

Nb: This article contains spoilers for Sin City and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Many film sequels latch onto one character who captures audiences’ imaginations, then mould subsequent stories around that character. There’s no doubt that the Pirates Of The Caribbean series existed because of Captain Jack Sparrow’s popularity, and audience’s desires to see more of the kooky rogue. Gollum’s popularity following The Two Towers surely had an effect in the editing room on Return Of The King, where he cemented himself as one of the most quotable and imitable characters of the decade.  

When this happens, producers respond, and the character often becomes elevated to a mascot - or even a reason to make subsequent films. They can occasionally end up hogging the posters, »

10 Raunchy Moments When Eva Green Went Bad

28 August 2014 6:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Dimension Films

Is there any actress out there as desired by the straight male (and lesbian) population as Eva Green right now? The French star has been an eye-opening cinematic presence throughout 2014, first for her kinky, twisted performance in 300: Rise of an Empire, and then in last week’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, where she once again cemented her status as one of the film industry’s trustiest go-to femme fatales. If you need a strong, sexy, seductive female for a role, there’s not really anyone better than Green at the moment.

Still, Green’s willingness to strip down for a part isn’t exactly something new, and despite her own (scarcely believable) claims that she’s in fact rather shy, she’s been taking her clothes off ever since her 2003 debut in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers, and been the object of desire of millions ever since. »

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 »

Gambling has been extensively used in movies as a plot device to convey tension and instances of high drama. Whether it’s a spin at the roulette table or a game of cards, seeing the hero and enemy at the mercy of sheer luck is a heart-stopping moment in any film that has us at the edge of our seats eager to find out the outcome of their gamble.

Box Office Democracy: “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”

25 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I was remarking to a friend a few weeks back that I was afraid that I had grown out of Sin City, that the franchise I had loved so much as a teenager/young adult was just beneath me now.  I don’t think that’s it though, not entirely, popular culture itself seems to have absorbed the things it likes from Sin City and moved on.  All that’s left is a movie that feels just as old and tired as the original film felt new and fresh nine years ago.

Before I go any further I have to shower praise on Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a man who seems to have been born to play noir leads.  While this is no secret to anyone who saw his dynamite performance in Brick it’s a treat to watch him do this work and a crying shame that there aren’t more »

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.

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.

Watch: 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Footage Without Visual Effects

25 August 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, nine years later, the audience who enjoyed Sin City in 2005 just doesn't seem to be very interested in the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, because the film bombed at the box office this past weekend. Personally, I didn't find the film to be terrible, but just more of the same coming far too late. But there are still some cool visuals to be seen (especially Eva Green), and having a movie with pretty much all the environments created in post-production is pretty impressive. And if you want to see what it's like for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller to shoot a film in this manner, essentially without a real set, some B-roll footage has surfaced. It has to be really difficult to act in a film like this with nothing on set. Watch! Here's a couple chunks of B-roll from Sin City: A Dame to Kill For »

Career Watch: Can Eva Green Rise Above Femme Fatale Typecasting?

25 August 2014 5:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" did little to add sizzle to the late-summer box office this past weekend after collecting a slim $6.5 million and dismissive reviews. But it’s not from lack of trying on the part of Eva Green. This casting addition to the stylized babes-brutes-and-bullets sequel based on Frank Miller’s lurid comic-book series steamed up more than a few critics’ 3-D glasses as Ava Lord, a diabolical emerald-eyed femme fatale who has a hard time keeping her clothes on. “Pulp and noir were often built on the beautiful shoulders of such characters as Ava, and the main justification for seeing the film is to watch Eva Green claim membership in the pantheon of noir leading ladies," writes Todd McCarthy in The Hollywood Reporter.  Adds Voice Media's Amy Nicholson: “Eva Green is sexy, funny, dangerous and wild -- everything the film needed to be -- »

​Box Office: Why Did 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Tank?

25 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Judging by the pre-release hype, you'd think "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" was a long- and eagerly-awaited sequel, a comic book movie for connoisseurs, whose all-star cast, eye-popping visuals, and violent action would make it the summer's last blockbuster. Given that the original opened at $29.1 million in 2005 dollars, the sequel, with a price boost from 3D, was expected to debut at least in the high teens. Such an opening might be good enough for first place, with a tight race expected among "Sin City," lingering hits "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and fellow newcomer "If I Stay."

And yet, when the smoke cleared, the film premiered with just an estimated $6.5 million, opening way down in eighth place. The other movies all did about as well as predicted -- "Guardians," "Turtles," and "If I Stay" all drew around $17 million, with "Guardians" claiming a slight edge »

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. »
