It's even worse than I expected based on the IMDb reviews.
24 September 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In recent memory, one of the worst sequels I've seen is 300: ROAE. Sin City 2, however, is even worse than that.

I'm quite a fan of the original Sin City, - it's never left my Top 10 of comic-book adaptations since it came out, - but by about minute 4 I knew that the sequel kinda blows. At the 10-minute mark, when Gordon-Levitt appeared and attempted to act tough and cool, I remembered than even the boyish-looking Shia LaBeouf managed to pull this off in Indy 4. Joseph, however, fails utterly, prancing around with a dumb smirk that says: "Hyuck! I'm pretty excited to be in this movie!" I've seen him in many roles, and he was pretty good in some of them, but SC2 is definitely bottom acting-wise for the guy. In all fairness, the director is to blame, too, because he should have gotten better acting out of JGL... plus his character is terribly written.

Everything about SC2 is painfully bad: - the stories are unbearably dumb and dull; - JGL's storyline in particular is one of the least interesting stories ever written and portrayed (no exaggeration); - the acting is atrocious all-around; - Eva Green is starting to get on my nerves because she is neither as great an actress nor as beautiful a leading lady as Hollywood keeps trying to tell us... plus I disliked seeing her on pure association with the horrible 300 sequel; - familiar characters are cheesily shoehorned in, for example, Bruce Willis drags around the screen as a sleepy-looking ghost, etc; - the new characters are painfully boring.

JGL and the overall dialogue are the 2 worst parts of this movie. And the plot lines are hideous. It's like like they were picked out of a "Rejected" pile... (Which some of them literally were - being the parts of the comic that didn't make it into Part 1).

I had a bad feeling about SC2, and IMDb reviewers were pretty clear about the quality of it, as well, but the actual movie proved worse than I ever anticipated based on those two factors. 1 out of 10, and that's really generous in this case.
