Robert Rodriguez’s recent work has been criticized for being more style over substance, and this trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For showed off during San Diego Comic-Con isn’t helping matters. While it plays like an extended music video, it all looks cool but falls flat. I liked the first Sin City enough, but I don’t think another one is going to work the same magic.
Then again, Eva Green is in this and she makes everything she’s in better. This could work. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For kills theaters August 22nd.
