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.

Let's be frank here: This is not a movie for everyone. In typical Frank Miller fashion, the story features a lot of gore interspersed with a lot of sex all brought to life under the skillful - if bloody - hands of Robert Rodriguez.
But if you're a fan of Miller's graphic novels, beautiful women in various stages of undress, tough guys who know how to take a punch, and over-the-top dialogue then you're going to love this movie.
'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' picks up the story started in the original 'Sin City.' Jessica Alba is back to recreate her role as the extremely sexy Nancy Callahan; Mickey Rourke returns as Marv, the human wrecking ball; and Bruce Willis returns as the ghost of Lt. John Hartigan, Nancy's protector and the object of her affection. This second installment in the life and times of the denizens of 'Sin City' also introduces Eva Green as Ava Lord, a scheming and super-sexy woman with an agenda, and gives Joseph Gordon-Levitt a chance to play a cocky young gambler with a talent for winning and a secret. Rosario Dawson, as the leader of a tough female street gang, and Jamie Chung, as her deadliest sister-in-arms, are back as well, dealing sex and death with the skill of a Las Vegas card shark.
As in the original 'Sin City,' there are multiple story lines at play in 'A Dame to Kill For.' Josh Brolin, as Dwight McCarthy, finds himself back in the arms of onetime love Ava Lord; Marv has taken over Hartigan's role as Nancy's protector; Gordon-Levitt is trying to humiliate Sen. Roark at the poker table and Nancy wants to kill the Senator because she blames him for Hartigan's death.
Miller and Rodriguez take these twisted plot lines and smooth them out so that the movie flows seamlessly from one violent encounter to another.
'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' is great cinema and if unclothed women and violence don't disturb your sensibilities, I'm betting you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
The Sin City case has only the Blu-ray disc for the Theatrical version of the first film. The Sin City 2 (Dame to Kill For) case has 3 discs (3D Blu-ray, 2D Blu-ray, DVD) and a voucher for an Ultraviolet digital download. Since there are two spindle holders in the case, the right side contains the 3D blu-ray disc, and the left side had the DVD stacked on top of the 2D blu-ray disc. The spindle is deep enough to stack two discs and hold them securely in place.
The movies are the very definition of artistic. The colours used, the stunts, the effects, all lend to a scene that is reminiscent of reading a graphic novel. This is exactly what has been needed for a long time and I wish there were more of them.
I think a certain amount of love for the film comes from the fact that different directors were tasked with different scenes. It meant the movie didn't have that "samey" feel. Whether this would have been the same without it..who knows. Either way, the films are amazing, I would highly recommend them, even just for some good, high profile celebrity features.
The blu-rays are perfect, no scratches. Boxes came unblemished.
PG-13 review - I love Eva Green.....you'll see why
I was wrong. This time around, various main characters use him (often by misleading him) to do their dirty work. Marv went from being a complex 3-dimensional character to a dull wrecking ball/deus ex machina. Unfortunately, like Marv, most of the characters from the original film that show up in "A Dame to Kill For" are terribly boring this time around. The 2 most interesting characters in this movie are new ones, and we don't get to spend enough time with them (especially Joseph Gordon Levitt's character).
If you were a fan of the first film, you can probably enjoy this one if your expectations aren't too high. If you weren't, skip it for sure.
