Just a shade under a decade and this sequel is just as good as the original. Rodriguez and Miller manage to do a fine job with a leaner running movie and some recasting. However, an abrupt ending leaves you wanting more...[more]...

Film noir is tricky but Rodriguez and Miller manage to pull it off. Sin City is like the graphic novel with a touch of Pulp Fiction.
Disorienting at times but adult and satisfying. Mainly black and white with touches of color. It really takes the art style of Miller's graphic novel and well paced. While being three separate stories but take place in the same area.
The characters are well acted with Rourke, Dawson, and Owen stealing the show. The weakest links are Bruce Willis and Jessica Alba. They aren't terrible but they seem to be just giving serviceable performances.
Actions are exaggerated and violent without going cartoon. A lot of sexiness here too.
It's a visionary movie with fine plots.
