More of Frank Miller's tales brought to life.
28 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this film last night and I was not disappointed. Being a fan of the first film I went in with high hopes for this film (as most people did after watching the first) and it tells some other Frank Miller stories well.

If you enjoyed the violence, great dialogue and overall aesthetic of the first one you'll love this film.

One of the only parts that really bothered me was the recasting of Dwight which threw me off slightly as I wasn't expecting it. It also gets slightly confusing at times because some stories are set in the present and some in the past which can be hard to keep up with, but if you are paying attention properly you get the grasp of it after a bit.

However overall I loved the film's over the top nature and comic book style and if you enjoyed the first one then you'll enjoy this one.
