Metal screams. Something hits me square in the chest. There's no up or down. I don't weigh a thing.

Very little to recommend here, with the obvious exception of the utterly delectable Eva Green. The movie only ever comes alive when she's on screen - which thankfully is quite often; and it only truly sizzles when La Green gets her kit off - which thankfully is quite often also.
The first half hour was so boring I literally fell asleep. Things did get a little more exciting towards the end, when the violence quotient went into pyrotechnical overdrive - but even though I only saw the film yesterday I've already forgotten most of it. Except Eva Green, of course. Did I mention that she's gorgeous. And that she takes her clothes off. A lot.
I can admire the technical skill that went into making A Dame to Kill For, but the whole thing was done far better first time around. Bruce Willis is wasted this time, as is Christopher Lloyd, and Ray Liotta looks like he's got a new job presenting Man Vs Food - portly would be the charitable word. Nice to see Powers Boothe in a meaty role, though.
And Eva Green. Oh boy.
