To be honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of the first Sin City. I thought the movie, as a whole, dragged and all of the hard-boiled narration didn’t really work as an homage or a parody. I appreciated the film’s unique look and respected the fact that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller really did succeed in creating a very real cinematic world but, on the whole, the film just didn’t work for me. It was a movie that failed to leave me excited, offended, enthralled, exhilarated, or angry. Instead, I was just bored.
Judging by how excited people online seem to be about Sin City’s upcoming sequel, I am very obviously in the minority.
And, I have to admit, I’ll probably end up watching Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. After all, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in it. I just hope that, unlike just about every character in the first film, he doesn’t end up getting disemboweled or shot in the head.
Here’s the 2nd trailer for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
(Also, if somebody doesn’t create a parody called Sim City: A Dame To Kill For, I will end up losing all faith in the internet….)
