July 14, 2020
Sin City is a dark, seedy, bloodily violent world that may not be the best place for everyone, but it's fun for those who belong there. You know who you are.

The film retains the stunning visual style of its predecessor with some eye-catching shots, but its vision detracts substance from the driving elements of Frank Miller's world. [Full review in Spanish]

If a script like this one is placed before these interpreters, one begins to understand the reason for the tedium that invades the entire movie, from start to finish. [Full Review in Spanish]

Like the original, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is episodic. But the 2005 installment's brutal short stories added up to a satisfying whole, while the sequel is an incoherent mess.
December 14, 2019
[A]ction-packed explosion of raw and visceral lust, corruption, vengeance and violence that dazzles, delights, intrigues, and celebrates the noir thrillers of the 30's, 40's and 50's on screen and on the pulp page.

Much as she does in the 300 sequel that premiered earlier this year, Eva Green demonstrates what a powerful asset she can be in otherwise subpar material.

August 6, 2019
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is part entertaining cartoon noir, part violently fetishized relationship revenge fantasy. The first part is recommendable; the second part is vile.

August 2, 2019
The actors clearly know how to fit into this graphic noir world, and are a great reason to see this quasi-sequel.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 24, 2019
Despite the opportunities granted by previous installments, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For regrettably features less of the same - both in style and substance.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 31, 2019
Lacks the same sizzle as the original, making it a flat sequel that is all style and little substance.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
November 1, 2018
It often feels like the table scraps of the first film, which basically used up all the best material and that doesn't leave much for this follow-up to work with.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
October 23, 2018
Unfortunately the narrative changes, sluggish pacing and mind-blowing lack of established time keep the film from achieving the lofty goals the original [Sin City] attained.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
August 22, 2018
This latest onscreen venture is imperfect, but it still put a goofy grin on this grumpy critic's face.
August 13, 2018
As visually intoxicating as the film is on the outside, it's dimly vacant on the inside, with not even Eva Green's presence and charged performance able to hold the audiences attention.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 13, 2017
With its simple dialogues and also because it is in essence a gorgeous-looking tableaux, enjoy this slick slice of cinema more for its visuals rather than anything else.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 7, 2017
This is risk-taking, melodramatic stuff, but handled well.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 30, 2017
It is very rarely that we see good sequels and this one is not to be missed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
May 9, 2017
A bad movie that overshadows what Miller can still give and which shelters the expectations of those who waited so long to receive so little. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5
March 27, 2017
The film attempts to emulate the languid pace of classic noir, but lacks the narrative complexity or compelling dialogue of its forebears.
Full Review | Original Score: Not Recommended
September 22, 2016
To call Sin City noir is to misunderstand the genre, as perhaps Miller does. Each story ends pretty simply-in brutal fighting and murder-and lacks genuine intrigue or ambiguity.
