    Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
    Robert Rodriguez teams with Frank Miller to direct this follow-up to Sin City from a script by Miller and William Monahan based on preexisting stories along with new ones written for the big screen. Josh Brolin stars in the adaptation of the comic miniseries (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), which tells the backstory of Clive Owen's Dwight character as he is wrapped up in the thralls of femme fatale, Ava (Eva Green). Also new to the series is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Johnny, a mysterious gambler set on taking down his sworn enemy in a high-stakes game of life and death. Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, and Jaime King return for the Dimension Films release, with Jamie Chung and Dennis Haysbert stepping into roles left by Devon Aoki and the late Michael Clarke Duncan. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      I watched this movie in 2D at a friend's house and thought it was pretty good. There are many reviews of the film online, rating it everywhere from awful to excellent. If you've never seen them, and are unfamiliar with the Sin City franchise, you should probably read those before purchase, as it's not everyone's cup of tea. On that note, my review is on the 3D Blu-Ray, not the movie itself. Many movies available as 3D Blu-Rays feature post-production 3D. What that means is that the movie is shot on standard 2D cameras, and a fake 3D effect is added later using computers. While with some films (Titanic, The Force Awakens) the effect is rather impressive, it doesn't change the fact that it's fake. While this film is heavily manipulated to create the look of the Sin City graphic novels, all the live action sequences were captured with the Arri Alexa 3D digital camera system. What that means, is that before all the computer effects, this movie started with a digital capture of all the live action in true 3D, and it shows. The 3D effect on this Blu-Ray is on par with Avatar, making it a must-have for anyone with a 3D home theater system. The DTS 5.1 surround is also quite impressive, which, if you like the movie, makes watching it a 5-star immersive experience.

      time is definitely what works against this film. stepping, finally, back into this world a decade later produced quite the mixed reactions amongst fans and critics. fact is, if this same exact movie came out, say, 3-4 years after the first, i think the reaction would've FAR less toxic. cause really it provides exactly everything you'd want from a sin city movie, as far as look, tone, music, characters, themes, story, violence...its all there, its definitely a sequel to sin city, but again, time hurt this film. at times it comes across as more of a fan film, but produced by rodriquez. my first viewing was a disappointing experience, though i wasn't hating what i was seeing, i was just...disappointed. second viewing however proved to be FAR better as far as knowing what to expect. where the first is a solid 10, this is an easy 7-8, especially when you view in 3D (just perfect, beautiful, fun stuff). and really, eva green raises the enjoyment level of any movie, and no she doesn't have to be naked to do so, but you'll get that anyways! but a beautiful steelbook exclusive to best buy...artwork inside and out is very impressive.

      Entertaining, but lacking. (Possible Spoilers)

      If you are a fan of the first Sin City movie, you will likely be disappointed by this movie, entertaining at times though it may be. Mickey Rourke as Marv was fun to watch as he was in the first movie, but unlike the first movie, he is pretty much the only reason to watch this one. Joseph Gordon Levitt's character was pretty much worthless, and as good an actor as Josh Brolin is, he is not Clive Owen, and it was a stupid move to try to make him look like Clive Owen as Dwight. The All-State man, Dennis Haysbert, was an amusing choice to replace Michael Clarke Duncun as Manute---he did well---at least that's my stand are you in good...never mind. Ray Liotta and Christopher Lloyd---great actors---but poorly used. Also, if you found it annoying that pretty much all the women in the first movie were used as objects, don't expect that to change in this movie---it's even worse. Lastly the development of Jessica Alba's character, Nancy, at the end of the film didn't really make sense. How is she suddenly able to do what she does? Anyway, if you liked the first Sin City, have free night and a free way to watch this film, you might get a kick out of it, but it is certainly not "A Film to Kill For."

      A Solid Sequel/Prequel

      Sin City: A Dame to Kill For may have gestated too long. In 2005, when the original Sin City film was released, there wasn't much else like it. The visual spectacle was every bit as compelling as the gritty, hard-boiled narrative, and the movie oozed style in every frame. Nine years later, however, it feels a bit dated. Moviegoers have been inundated with this kind of green-screen movie where only the actors are real and everything else is digitally added later. That being said, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is still a pretty solid movie, despite feeling like a visual rehash of something we've seen many times before. The performances are mostly good; Mickey Rourke is still funny and menacing as Marv, and Eva Green is sultry and dangerous, though Josh Brolin feels a little wooden at times as Dwight. Director Robert Rodriguez does an excellent job again of capturing the largely monochromatic look of Frank Miller's graphic novels. I don't feel like this movie is as good as the original Sin City, but if you like that one, there's a good chance you'll like this one, too. If, however, you didn't like Sin City, there isn't much chance you'll like this prequel/sequel.

      A Film To Kill For?

      Straight from the pages of Frank Miller's cutting edge series “Sin City”, co-directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez reunite to bring the visually stunning stories back to the screen. Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin) struggles with his inner demons and tries to maintain control until his former lover, the goddess Ava Lord (Eva Green), returns wanting his help to escape her abusive husband. Though once he learns her true intentions are far more sinister than they appear, he recruits the help of Marv (Mickey Rourke) and Gail (Rosario Dawson). While a cocky young gambler (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) takes his chances winning against the most powerful man in Sin City, Senator Roark (Powers Boothe). But this is Senator Roark’s least of problems because Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) has been driven insane by John Hartigan's (Bruce Willis) selfless suicide and is no longer a damsel in distress and is out for blood, compelled to avenge Hartigan by hunting down Senator Roark.

      Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller Shooting Blanks

      I really enjoyed Sin City. The first film was gritty, bold and outrageous. City City 2 is none of those things. The first film had several short stories that helped the momentum and kept the pacing moving. The sequel spends most of it's time on one story, that isn't particularly interesting . Frank Miller is called a legend [ mostly by Frank Miller] but after the God awful Spirit movie and this film, he should be banned from ever setting foot on a sound stage again. The big named star try to work with the weak script they have, but that added to the uninspired direction from miller and Rodriguez and there isn't a lot to recommend the film, except the visual effects , which are again what set Sin City apart from other films. Perhaps the most interesting visual is Eva Green on screen in various stages of undress. That alone may be enough to buy the Blu Ray on sale.

      Possibly the best 3D in my collection

      I own quite a few 3D movies, so I think I know a good 3D experience when I see it. This goes right along with other 3d movies like, gravity, transformers and avatar. Minimal ghosting/crosstalk if any, very immersive, you probably have to cut on a light in the room occasionally to make sure your not right there. Plenty of screen popping effects, you won't be disappointed if you pick this up just based on the 3D experience. The story is okay, a little hard to follow, but I don't really care about the story. Just the awesome 3d experience,I'm quite surprised this on sell for under 15 dollars. Usually 3d bluray's with this caliber of effects is in the 30 dollar plus range, its a must buy if you enjoy 3d as I do. I hope this review helps my fellow 3d lovers.

      Awesome. If your scared of wasting your time bcus the first sin city movie was IN MY PERSONALL CASE creepy. Then fret do not. This movie is awesome. Joseph Levitts performance killed it. Ok its a movie that is very adult rated but as an adult its just a lot of fun. It is 100% fantasy logic. So if you just only watch PG-13 Movies and have trouble suspending your imagination this is not for you. :( The first Sin City movie had some story involving ____ and that killed for me since Its like to annoying, and just not (typically) a fun release for me, you know, knowing the good guy/ girl got- you know...:( Coolio, snakesoup out
