Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014 - ★★½

Oh dear. I'd heard some bad reviews but I still wasn't expecting this to be so damn boring. Watching the original film last week I was surprised how fresh everything still seemed nine years later, here everything already feels tired and clichéd. It doesn't even look that great with inconsistent styles being more distracting than engaging. In fact all the things that people complained about in the first film are true here: most of the violence is unnecessary, women are treated badly and have lost their clothes, it drags on for too long and is mostly just boring.
