What happened to Robert Rodriguez? Where did it all go wrong? The new trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was released today and whatever mild excitement I had for this movie is officially gone. I’m a fan of the original movie but, simply put, this movie looks awful. Sin City was a highly grotesque and stylized crime story that I felt really tapped into Rodriguez’s talents of mixing masterfully done action sequences with some really kick-ass dialogue and was a perfect adaption of the source material. This movie looks like Machete (which I hated) meets Sin City,with completely over the top action scenes and trying-to-be-cool-but-actually-comeing-off-as-cheesy dialogue.
Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For is set for release on August 22, 2014 and stars Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Mickey Rourke.
