Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

Director(s): Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez. Cast: Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Dennis Haysber, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Pive, Christopher Lloyd, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, Lady Gaga. 102 min. Rated R. Crime/Thriller.

Why oh why do they have to ruin great films with sequels? The haphazard piling of this three-part story (with Gordon-Levitt, Brolin/Rourke and Alba in the lead for each) is such an obvious attempt to capitalize on the innovative 2005 film, that at times you feel not even the filmmakers believe in the movie. Ironically, the digital camerawork and occasional color-in-black-and-white (the original's high point), are less gratifying than the original. All I remember of this film, is a camera in love with Eva Green's body, and the lack of a climactic ending to at least provide some emotional satisfaction.
