About Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
So many sequels are greenlit, filmed and released so fast these days it seems to be something of a modern miracle that this new collection of hyper-violent crime stories is being released a whopping nine whole years after the first film wowed audiences with its artful use of colour and grim misogyny. Stripper Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) is devastated by the suicide of father figure John Hartigan and embarks upon a campaign of revenge against the powerful men she believes to be responsible. Scarred slab of meat Marv (Mickey Rourke) also wants to clean up with the town of his own brand of bone-crunching justice, while gambler Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is just trying to live through the night. Dwight (previously played by Clive Owen but now embodied by Josh Brolin) tangles with tricksy femme fatale Ava Lord (Eva Green).
