  • Richard Roeper

    This is one badass movie.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Mottram

    Not as groundbreaking as the original, nor as expansive as all the best sequels are. But with some excellent cast additions, and Miller on murky form, this still sizzles to the touch.

  • Sheila O'Malley

    At least in Sin City women are full-on goddesses: powerful and awful, with big needs, willing to go to the mat to get what they want. In other films, the flat portrayal of women seems like a failure of the imagination. Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This movie is mostly about visual razzle-dazzle and riffing on film noir conceits. Rodriguez hasn't deviated far from his mission statement for the original and that's a good thing for Sin City fans.

  • Steve Persall

    Despite its unsavory aspects, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is always a pleasure to observe, so artfully artificial with its green-screened backdrops and CGI props.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Gaudily entertaining, occasionally wearying sequel.

    Time Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Visually, the film’s technique is thrilling. There’s hardly a camera setup anywhere that doesn’t look like it could be a frame ripped from a comic book or graphic novel.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    You could argue that the only thing that’s automatic about A Dame to Kill For, really, is some of the firepower that its hardcases are packing.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Alba is a showstopper in a fringed cowgirl outfit. But nine years wiser, we know that pretty things aren’t always worth killing for.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    The weakness is in the material: these are second-string Miller yarns... But the vision remains uncompromising and it dazzles far more than any sequel should.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    It has a nose for what's cool, but is completely inept at execution. Full Review
  • James White

    A Dame To Kill For shares some of the downsides of the first, particularly dubious female characterisation. But this retains the gritty, gruelling vice-grip on graphic-novel noir that made Sin City so enjoyable.

    Empire Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you’ve had in years. It’s neither high art nor noir, but it’s what a Sin City film should be.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    There's an all-the-scenery-you-can-eat appearance by the deliciously mad Eva Green, too, who spends most of the movie even more naked (and nuttier) than she was in "300: Rise of an Empire." The ever-wry Joseph Gordon-Levitt also shows up as a cocky gambler, while a simian Josh Brolin takes over from Clive Owen as Dwight.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Jason Clark

    The overall effect is less titillating than numbing.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    If you’re not looking for reinvention and loved the first "Sin City," then you'll probably love this one too. It's a gorgeous-to-look-at, brain-splattered case of "more of the same."

    The Playlist Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The highest-gloss revenge porn imaginable. It’s hard to believe that so much visual elegance has been brought to bear on material so ugly, and yet the disjunction is intentional, and the film is all of a piece.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    It’s less startling than it was when the first Sin City was released in 2005, maybe even quaint, like a black-light Jimi Hendrix poster from the ’60s.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is as visually imaginative as its predecessor.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The cartoonish mayhem in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For aims for a film noir sensibility, but too frequently the script simply resorts to anachronistic scenes of Jessica Alba twerking.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    To stay fresh, you have to evolve. Rodriguez and Miller have stayed the same.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    If Rodriguez had any selectivity as an action director and a purveyor of garish thrills, the violence might have an impact beyond benumbing the spectator. "Sin City 2" keeps piling on, flipping the visual pages and selling the same ancient lessons in misogyny that real noir, or neo-noir, exploited yet transcended.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Miller's monochrome palette, splashed with color that shines like a whore's lip gloss, doesn't startle as it once did. It's like running into an ex-love and realizing that, damn, the thrill is gone.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    As an exercise in style, it's diverting enough, but these mean streets are so well traveled that it takes someone like Eva Green to make the detour through them worth the trip.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    "A Dame to Kill For” isn’t the shock to the system “Sin City” was. But whatever its plot repetition and warmed-over tough talk cost it, this is still a movie like few others you’ve ever seen, a 3D slice of Nihilistic noir that will have you narrating your own guts and guns story on the drive home, chewing on a toothpick as you do.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    In just about every way, the film is an inferior sequel — dumber, flatter, lacking even the barbaric extremity of its predecessor. Where’s a flesh-eating Elijah Wood when you need him?

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    [Eva] Green is the only one able to excite this silly material into the spiky shape it’s supposed to take. You wish the rest of the cast was as clued in.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    There is an interesting kernel of a story about beauty, betrayal and brutality inside each of the film's scenarios and a cast that could handle anything thrown at it. But the kernel never pops, and all we're really left with is a whole lot of neo-noir corn.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    The best antidote to all the glowering and posing is Eva Green: As Ava, the titular dame, she’s nothing short of a godsend.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The sequel to one of the most visually striking movies of the last 10 years continues the graphic novel-inspired landscape of its predecessor. But the characters don’t click, and the action feels dull.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Jamie Neish

    As much as the sequel aches to remind audiences of what they liked first time round, it struggles to establish itself as its own unique entity.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Green is sexy, funny, dangerous, and wild -- everything the film needed to be -- and whenever she's not on-screen, we feel her absence as though the sun has blinked off.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    Whereas a single, stinging one-liner would have sufficed Jacques Tourneur or Fritz Lang, Frank Miller's overcompensating flood of pulpy dialogue only renders his characters flat and sans empathy.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    This entire film is like someone raised a kid in a room, cut off from all contact with the outside world, and all he had was a stack of Hustlers, a stack of Soldier of Fortunes, and a bunch of black-and-white stills from old detective movies, and at the age of 14, that kid gets turned loose and spends two hours screaming in your face about these stories he's been writing.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    It takes at least a sliver of human interest to make a noir pastiche more than the sum of its influences, and anything resembling authentic feeling has been neatly airbrushed away from this movie’s synthetic surface.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is still a visual buffet, but adding 102 more minutes of double crosses, slow torture and hookers with hearts of gold just exposes the tediousness of the exercise.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    For a film loaded with decapitations and gun-toting ladies in bondage gear, Sin City gets really tedious really quickly.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    It’s so egregiously awful, so utterly without merit, that it makes its predecessor seem much worse by association. The film’s brainless, chest-beating brand of hyper-pulp calls into question whether Sin City was any good at all, or whether the novelty of its visuals and storytelling merely masked a howling nothingness at its core.
