The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIE REVIEWS -

The great graphic nov­el­ist Frank Miller and his good buddy, film­maker Robert Ro­driguez, are back to­gether once again. Just like they did with the orig­i­nal Sin City in 2005, this duo are here to hit you with all the style you can han­dle. You want sub­stance? You mustn’t have seen the orig­i­nal Sin City. Ev­ery­thing hap­pens in high-con­trast black-and-white. Streaks of colour snake in and out of view to make a point, or just add a lit­tle pic­to­rial punc­tu­a­tion. Oh, and the crime, the crooks, the femme fa­tales and the blood are as re­lent­lessly hard-boiled as ever. While more of a fans-only af­fair than its pre­de­ces­sor, A Dame to Kill For still roughs up the senses in a way that is com­pletely dif­fer­ent to ev­ery­thing else out there. Stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gor­don-Le­vitt, Eva Green.
