Page to Screen Vol. 2.2: A Dame to Kill For
I was really excited to see this movie...but was let down.
The film tried to tie to way too many things in the first book and tie up the loose strings from the first movie. It was a hot, boring, slow mess.
Visually stunning as usual, the sequel did not live up to its predecessor.
Casting wasn't as strong either. Eva Green as the femme fatale, Ava, fell a little flat for me. Crowd favorites Marv (Mickey Rourke), Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) and Gail (Rosario Dawson) returned to the big screen. Devon Aoki did not reprise the role of Miho. The role was instead played by Jamie Chung. Jamie, although beautiful, was not as deadly as I would have liked her to be.
The film stays true to it's film noir roots with smoky bars, hard boiled detectives and the pschopathic femme fatle, even with all these classic ingredients there was too much going on. Don't want to give too much away, but let's just say you should wait until this is available on Redbox.
A sad two out of five.
