The lead role was originally offered to Johnny Depp but he declined due to scheduling conflicts. Joseph Gordon-Levitt later replaced him and chose to star in the movie despite offers to star in other movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Godzilla (2014). Back in 2006 when Rodriguez first starting putting together ideas for SIN CITY 2, he considered Depp for the part of Wallace, the lead character of "HELL AND BACK" which he was hoping to adapt as one of the film's three segments. The idea to adapt HELL AND BACK was scrapped though & Rodriguez chose to adapt "JUST ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT", "A DAME TO KILL FOR" & the never published "THE LONG, BAD NIGHT" instead. See more »

Well after the first one which featured child rape cannibalism castration done by hand this is a Walt Disney Picture. Poor Eve she keeps taking all her clothes off and nobody cares this film another bomb like her other meretricious special the hilariously bad 300; RISE OF MISANDRY was another crashing bomb. Eva I do not think your body is doing it honey back to TV where you belong in the appropriately titled Penny Dreadful. Yes the black and white photography is beautiful how wonderful to watch Marv our hero rip eyes out and slash throats with on snot nose youngsters. Hey way to go Marv. I will spare my readers the usual lecture on decadence. WHAT A CRASHING BORE; as I watched this sad commentary on what a depraved sewer our once great country has become; oh, make no mistake films are mirrors of the society within which they are made. I refer critics to the great anthropologist Jules Henry on how society's cultural products evince the mores and folkways of that society.
I thought of that wonderful quotation from Napoleon," When you take God out of a society you get a nation of highwaymen." Marv himself echoes this in the first Sin City when he says hell is waking up with no purpose or meaning. Yes exactly Marv and this is what you get near the end of a great ascendant country that once ruled the world a depraved repugnant nauseating gore fest to assuage all the worker slaves feeling of being the impotent ants that they are; yes, is this enough? How much more pain and suffering before you start to feel better. They annihilated God then family currently country and what is left? Savage brainless cruelty better fitted for a cannibal village.
Any of you New Age feminists notice the portrayal of women in this film? Eve Green what a feminist Icon. Yes, from ladies to heartless evil seductresses the misogyny throughout the picture in this time and place is so funny. Yes the new Miho how many heads do we need; hey anybody bored yet? I found the film a very hideous depressing experience. It is much tamer than the first one which was real garbage; sorry just not into cannibalism and child rape sorry I know I am so gauche. Destroying others simply for the entertainment value there is a word for this condition SADISM. Save your time it is simply sewage.
