Sin City movies remind me of Kill Bill 1 and 2. If it wasn't for short dialogues of this movie and a little faster pace I wouldn't have been surprised it I saw "Tarantino" in front of "director". But where Tarantino loves long dialogues and slower story telling, this one packs lots of action and story inside story for the whole length of the movie. Sin City 2.0 will entertain you just like the first one. If you watched the last one to the end then I thin actually you will like this one a little better.
A note on the actors though. I think Joseph Gordon choice was poor. He is too small for this movie. I would have liked to see Keanu Reeves instead.
I gave this move a 7 rating, but I feel a little guilty because I feel like our expectations are getting lower when it comes to movies. Talk about acting. Compare the masked and cliché and animated performances in this movie to the likes of No Country for Old men, or 21 grams, or Blue Valentine.
