A Dame To Kill For isn't likely to create converts out of those uninterested in the pulpy side of fiction. But it more than earns its keep in terms of lavishing love, mildly ironic as well as pretty damn earnest, on pumped-up noir.

Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 2014-08-22

 

For those who appreciated Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 2005 campy, kinetic film noir homage, Sin City, the 2014 follow-up, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is unlikely to disappoint.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2014-08-22

 

Anyone offended by graphic violence, kinky sex and eyefuls of nudity should stay away. But for those who like their fiction hard-boiled like a rock and naughty to the bone, expect to be pleased, if not thoroughly satisfied.

Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News, 2014-08-22

 

In a Hollywood landscape where so much action cinema in plagued with sameness, I can not in good conscience give anything with this level of inspired design an entirely negative review.

Jordan Hoffman, Film.com, 2014-08-21

 

This is one badass movie.

Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com, 2014-08-21

 

As usual with "Sin City," much of the vibe is about echoing genre touchstones, while the look isn't quite like anything else the digital age has seen.

Tom Russo, Boston Globe, 2014-08-21

 

Reviewers were forbidden from posting a word about this sequel until opening day, lest we give away the shocking secret that it's a carbon copy of its predecessor.

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2014-08-28

 

There are a handful of ways in which A Dame to Kill For actually improves on the first movie. Alas, none are enough to prevent it from being a substantial disappointment.

Christopher Orr, The Atlantic, 2014-08-22

 

Miller's original comic-book frames serve narrative functions, but these movies are all grabby graphics, devoid of compelling style.

Michael Sragow, Orange County Register, 2014-08-22

 

You don't expect to be exhausted by reams of soul-sick narration and artful chiaroscuro compositions, but that's what happens.

Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out, 2014-08-22

 

It's hard to believe that so much visual elegance has been brought to bear on material so ugly, and yet the disjunction is intentional, and the film is all of a piece.

David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2014-08-22

 

If you showed the Sin City midnight world in smaller doses, as a weekly series on late-night cable television, the slick graphics and cold kink might be more compelling.

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, 2014-08-22

 

The movie winds up folding under the weight of its own heavy tone, itself another victim of the darkness and nihilism of Sin City.

Adam Graham, Detroit News, 2014-08-22

 

Why sit through this pimply excuse for pulp fiction? Why not read the real boys (Goodis, Cain, Thompson), or see the real films (Forget it, Jake. It's not Chinatown)?

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-08-22

 

The movie's all just broads and mugs and gats and gore.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2014-08-22

 

The greatest sin of "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" is the way its high style is brought low -- visually stunning, but emotionally vapid, unrelentingly violent, its splendiferous comic book cast mostly squandered.

Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 2014-08-21

 

If only the characters didn't have to talk.

Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, 2014-08-21

 

Punishingly stylized, this marriage of comic-book panels and hard-boiled dialogue has a heaviness that can't be explained solely by its cynicism or lack of wit. It's a blunt instrument whose visual shadings far surpass the kill-or-be-killed storytelling.

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 2014-08-21

 

It's a town of bad women and worse poets, where the fists are hard, the talk is tough but nothing is for real - and nothing doesn't add up to much.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2014-08-21

 

The movie's trademark mix of live action and drawing techniques (white silhouettes, reddened lips, an abundance of venetian blinds) looks fantastic. If it's depth you want, you've knocked on the wrong door.

Rafer Guzman, Newsday, 2014-08-21
