Title: Sin City – A Dame To Kill For (IMDb)
Directed by: Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller
Written by: Frank Miller
Year: 2014
Length: 102 min
Rating: 18
My IMDb rating: 9/10

This movie is really sexy. Naked bodies everywhere (mostly female but on one occasion also male). The rating isn’t just for sexiness either. There is more than enough of violence in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. While the feminist in me was screaming at me to get out, the comic geek in me was cheering in her seat. I couldn’t help thinking: Damn, what an amazing movie.

I haven’t read the graphic novel yet, so I can’t compare that to the movie adaptation. I will solely consider the movie then.

The cast speaks for itself: among others, we have Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, and of course, our dame Eva Green.
