Sin City: A Dame to Kill For  
What happens in Sin City requires a sequel....
2.5/4 stars

Robert Rodriguez finally makes the sequel that everyone wanted him save his dam kids to make. Too bad it's nine years too late for people other than nerds like myself to get excited about. The hyperstylized black-and-white visuals are as breathtakingly beautiful as ever. It's like a modernization of a Bogart-Bacall picture and the fact that the main plot focuses on a hardened private eye's lust for a slinky seductress, the homage is even more obvious. The violence is as over-the-top as ever, the dialogue is as hardboiled as ever, and the cast chews it all up without a second thought. Like the original Sin City, the narrative is a collection of overlapping stories but unlike the first one, not all of them are worth watching on their own accord. There's Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a gambler taking on a crooked politican (Boothe); Brolin is the aforementioned gumshoe head-over-heels for an evil Eva Green; and Mickey Rourke just appears but he's the highlight of the cast. Unlike other reviews which criticize the Brolin-Green subplot, this was my favorite segment as it comes closest in plot structure and characterization as the old-fashioned film-noirs of old Hollywood.
