BWW Review: SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Is Paint By Numbers Disappointment
by Matt Tamanini - Aug 22, 2014

There is a rule that is generally accepted by all movie fans; while a sequel might eclipse its original in box office receipts, merchandise sales, and social media presence, it is only on rare occasions when it can match its predecessor in terms in quality.

Unfortunately, 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' is not one of those rare occasions. Titular grammatical error aside, this listless sequel provides none of the awe-inspiring spectacle of its far superior original. (more...)
