  • sin-cityDecidedly different but no less enter­taining is the latest effort from EOne En­tertainment suitably titled Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Die For. Prepare to be taken to a dark new world. Check out these rather offbeat characters at Cin­eplex Odeon Theatres around B.C.

    Taken from the graphic novels of cult phenom Frank Miller the second in what promises to be a series of Sin City movies delights in the underbelly of society. Yes, the people that inhabit this wacky world are indeed hard-boiled.

    Women mix with strip clubs, gam­bling and a host of unsavoury charac­ters. This time out we really have three different story lines that ultimately come together with a woman or two the cen­trepiece. Yes, it helps to have see the first Sin City as people for the original find themselves in more trouble.

    Not to trot gambler Joseph Gor­don-Levett seems possessed to win at the tables while dancing phenom Jes­sica Alba just wants to avenge her former confidante, shown in flashbacks to be Bruce Willis. Caught in the middle of this crossfire of corruption is Powers Boothe as a conniving Senator and Josh Brolin as a loner/loser entrapped and fixated on a beautiful woman played buoyantly by Eva Green (Casino Royale).

    Muscle and flesh is in abundance here as dark-edged fantasy come to life in impressive work from Dennis Haysbert as an enforcer and Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) as a friend in need. Sexy and brutal this 106 minute opus is a real eye- opener not for the timid.

    Fear the night and the crazy com­motion served up by Robert Rodriguez in this dazzling look at the wild side of life.
