Highly Suspect Reviews: ‘Sin City 2’

30 Submitted by on Thu, 21 August 2014, 16:01

Rain pummels the desert-browned roofs of Austin, teasing the night with tantalizing specter of quenched thirst. A quintet of scoundrels conspire to pierce the quiet night with a cacophony of snark as they spit dissatisfaction in the direction of Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Chris, Beau, Ashley, Richard,and Elliott go all noir-y to cut down this sequel in an audio review “replete with negotiable virtue” as Richard would say.

      Awwe! Africa was awesome but I missed you doods!

    I loved the first SIN CITY, but Frank Miller’s unrelenting grumpiness has all but ruined his stuff for me. Much like David Mamet, he was praised for his portrayal of misogynistic men who hate everything until we found out he WAS a misogynistic man who hates everything. And THE SPIRIT is one of the most unpleasant movies I’ve ever seen, just dripping with contempt for its audience and its cast.

    And Robert Rodriguez clearly waited too long to make a second SIN CITY, because the part of him that does shitty kids movies has clearly taken over. I just sat through MACHETE KILLS for a movie review, and…woof.

  • Guest

    Im literally watching the first Sin City while I listen to this review, and ugh, I dunno like this movie has alot of really great stuff like OhMyHolyGod Powers Boothe is fucking electric but ugh like the black n white shit all greenscreen looks terrible for me. And some of the acting especially of like background parts is atrocious.

  • dark knight fan

    How is Josh Brolin as Dwight because Clive Owen as Dwight in
    the first film was my favorite character.

    • Beau

      Because they didn’t have Clive Owen under contract so he wasn’t obliged to return and make this POS.

      • dark knight fan

        Ok well was his good in the role.

  • dark knight fan

    The best movie based on Frank Miller’s work is Batman Begins
    which is based on Batman Year One.

  • dark knight fan

    I was thinking that you guys will like this because I saw people’s reviews on
    youtube and they like it.

  • dark knight fan

    So Beau how many hookers are you going to kill because of the movie.

    • AshleyMoreno

      43. Always 43. Why is that??

      • Austin

        My life has been a lie…. I thought the answer to everything was 42

        • AshleyMoreno

          Hey man, you can’t get that lost time back. Focus on the future. The bright bright future.

          • Beau

            Because that future is filled with whores.If Frank Miller has anything to say about it.

        • Beau

          Always gotta have One to Grow On!

  • james ozzy

    Of course this movie is skit. There was hardly any trailers for this. MediA and the FCC kept attacking the film poster. Remember the Spirit movie?

    The movie seemed to deserve 10 no Will Eisner awards.

  • Maciek

    Frank Miller suck. “The Dark Knight Returns” and “Year One” are great (desite their flaws) but every thing else he made is just bad… (don’t kill me)

    • AshleyMoreno

      I agree, no killing! Maybe we can all just agree to distance ourselves from Miller for a bit. Maybe take a little break? Make INCOGNITO into a movie. And then see how we feel afterwards.

    • Beau

      I am a big fan of his work on Daredevil, his Ronin mini-series, the original Wolverine mini-series (arguably the best Wolverine story ever), Elektra: Assassin and I also greatly respect his artwork…but his tone has become so oppressive and horrible over the last 15 or so years that his newer work is nigh-unreadable.

      • Maciek

        Ok, fair enough. I’ll forgot I read his “Dare Devil : Man without fear” comic book many years ago and I did enjoy it… I will also openly admit – I’ll never read his fameus Wolverine comics (I’ more into DC then Marvel) so can belive they are as great as people say.

        I think he put more work in those books since It was beafore fans where crazy over him and people where telling him his a genius and since he wasn’t as big of a name editors had more control over his work. Now his just doig whatever he want’s, dosen’t care what people are saying and conisider all crtiuque rubish (“The Gorge Lucas syndrome”?)… plus he gone insane and asume that being a “prostitue” and “female character” is the same word

      • Jack Gattanella

        His work on Daredevil and Ronin are his best stuff. Batman Year One is also excellent. Parts of TDKR are really good, other parts aren’t. Sin City: The Hard Goodbye is a bad-ass book. The Dark Knight Strikes Again and All-Star Batman & Robin are pieces of unredeemable shit. I won’t touch Holy Terror, and I’m curious about his Elektra.

  • Myrna

    It cracked me up that Elliot made sure to insert the disclaimer as he was defending the movie- don’t worry, we don’t think that because you were laughing at this movie that you’re a misogynist!

    • AshleyMoreno

      LOL Elliot is adorbs 😛

  • B. Alex Thompson

    12:20- Maybe because it’s a town of whores the strip club is modest because that’s the oddity. In Sin City you’re so jaded by nudity and sex that you go to a place where women put clothes on to turn you on! Genius!

  • TheDVDGrouch

    This sequel lost me as soon as they said 2 brand new stories written by the Frank Miller of today. The first Sin City was a big guilty pleasure of mine when I was younger but as I get older I find it harder & harder to watch.

    I plan to pick A Dame To Kill for up on DVD so I can watch the segments I want & skip the ones I dont wanna watch.

  • you guys are great, but will you be returning to reviewing multiple movies per week anytime soon?

    • also, i really appreciate the longer running time on this review. good stuff.

    • Beau

      Well, one of the problems is that we can only review as many movies as come out in any given week – now that the “summer rush” as it were, is over, there just aren’t as many releases out every week. It’ll pick back up again as we get into fall and especially as the winter crop of Oscar contenders is released.

  • Patrick Goforth

    Hmmm this is weird a Frank Miller adaptation full of naked and half naked hookers with machine guns and swords killing people, but a strip club with no nudity, what’s the world coming to!!!

  • El Pollo Guerrera

    Made me think of this video… (sorry, pro wrestling related)
