Nine years ago, Robert Rodriguez's Sin City hit theatres, heralding a new era for comic book films due to its unique visual design and darker, true-to-comic content. But my how things have changed since then. Just think, now we’ve got a vast library of Marvel films, an immensely successful Batman trilogy and a handful of highly entertaining adaptations (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Kick-Ass, RED etc) under our belts. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is not only an excruciating experience to endure but harbours some deeply disturbing traits.
It’s time for Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez to sit down and watch The Hunger Games or revisit Alien and wake up to the fact that women have bucket loads to offer when it comes to playing characters who are required to kick ass and take names. Please don’t waste your time with this film. The quicker this comes and goes, the better off we’ll all be.
