Action Crime Thriller - Like the first film in 2005, this is
a very violent and visually stylized
neo-noir action thriller, but this
time the nudity and sexual content
has been amped up. A number of stars
from the first film return, such as
Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and an
only briefly seen Bruce Willis.
Violence, language, nudity, and sex
make this strictly for adults.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good Rodriguez hasn't deviated far from his mission statement for the original and that's a good thing for Sin City fans.
Roger EbertFull Review Good But Rodriguez and Miller are completely committed to their vision, such as it is, and its ferocity can't be easily dismissed.
USA TodayFull Review Average If viewers don't expect much from the wan drama and gimmicky story, they might be distracted by the striking visuals. But the hard-boiled denizens of Sin City are generally a monochromatic blur.
Entertainment WeeklyFull Review Below Average Any movie whose cast includes two dozen famous actors has to coast on those thesps' abilities, and that proves to be the case here—though, disappointingly,...

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 21 moviegoers:
Just like the very mixed critic reviews, the moviegoer reviews are all over the place.
TEENS: Both the males loved "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Three of the five males loved it but the other two didn't enjoy it at all. Two of the four females enjoyed it very much rating it "Above average." Another one rated it "average" with the final female indicating that she didn't enjoy it at all.
ADULTS: Two of the five males rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Two more felt it was just an average movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). The final male didn't enjoy it at all.
The female reviews are very low. Unfortunately, there aren't enough reviews to be real accurate but these few reviews clearly show that the ladies didn't enjoy "Sin City."
