Consensus: A Dame to Kill For boasts the same stylish violence and striking visual palette as the original Sin City, but lacks its predecessor's brutal impact.

Reviewers were forbidden from posting a word about this sequel until opening day, lest we give away the shocking secret that it's a carbon copy of its predecessor.

Miller's original comic-book frames serve narrative functions, but these movies are all grabby graphics, devoid of compelling style.

More of the same, yet shockingly less.

There are a handful of ways in which A Dame to Kill For actually improves on the first movie. Alas, none are enough to prevent it from being a substantial disappointment.

Time Out

You don't expect to be exhausted by reams of soul-sick narration and artful chiaroscuro compositions, but that's what happens.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For proves that no matter how many clouds and thunder you put on a screen, it's hard to catch lightning in a bottle a second time.

A Dame To Kill For isn't likely to create converts out of those uninterested in the pulpy side of fiction. But it more than earns its keep in terms of lavishing love, mildly ironic as well as pretty damn earnest, on pumped-up noir.

For those who appreciated Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 2005 campy, kinetic film noir homage, Sin City, the 2014 follow-up, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is unlikely to disappoint.
