“There is no justice without sin”
- What is this movie about?
Sin City. City of sin. Here we see different stories that are connected by characters, all of them taking place in Sin City. Stories about revenge, stories about power, stories about love…. Some of these stories take place after the stories shown in the first Sin City movie and others take place before.
- Why should you watch it?
Yes, this is the sequel of “Sin City”, but you don’t need to watch the first one in order to understand this one. But, I insist, you better watch it, cause the first one was something brand new when it came out, and it is worth your time! So, going back to this one: it keeps the style, there are the same characters, there are new characters, in all, it is a gret movie to watch. Specially if you liked the first one. It is more of the same yes, but this same is something brilliant, worth to re-watch again and again.
As for the actors. Most of them have come back to reprise their roles, tought there are some new faces for the same characters or new faces for the new ones. For example, Eva Green, again she is on a movie based on a Frank Miller’s comic, and boy does she plays the femme fatale!
Above all, the movie keep the quality of the first one. Yes, it might have come out too late (almost 10 years) after the first one, but if you liked the first one, you will definitely like this one too. Give it a shot!
