Usually the rules of a sequel dictate that it is bound to be worse. Will it be the case for Sin City 2? The answer lies somewhere in the middle. While it does lose out to the first one in terms of the plot, the stylized action and the dark humor maintain their lofty standards. Sin City 2 does just enough to mask its flaws and deliver an enjoyable experience to its audience. Also, the censor board probably made it worse than it was, filtering out some very 'important' scenes that probably added a great deal to the plot (especially ones involving Eva Green).
Sin City 2 has three story arcs that have only a couple of things in common, namely Marv, and the location : Sin City. Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), is a hustler, and he's out to play the biggest player of them all, Senator Roark. Jessica Alba returns as Nancy Callahan, who's not able to deal with the death of Hartigan too well and is slowly training herself to kill Roark, who is a frequent visitor to her establishment. Lastly, we have Dwight (Josh Brolin), who works as some sort of private investigator. He's trying to run from his past, but it soon catches up with him in the form of Ava (Eva Green). She cons Dwight into killing her husband, and then tries to do away with him as well.
Sin City 2 has enough entertainment for you to forgive the fact that underneath all that style isn't much substance. The movie doesn't give you enough reason to care about any of the characters However, the action along with soundtrack do make for quite a spectacle, and if thats all you need from a movie, then you won't be disappointed with Sin City : A Dame to Kill for.
