The Neonuarny anthology sins of the city was one of the brightest films of 2005. Known actors, picturesque characters and Robert Rodriguez dynamic direction would make it popular even if at it more would be nothing behind soul. But the sins of the city had a trump ace – the unique visual style which has brought to a picture the technical Grand Prix of Cannes Film festival. Having shot all picture against «the green screen», Rodriguez and his coauthor Frank Miller, the well-known founder of comics, then freely manipulated the image, playing with contrasts of light and shade, black and white, color and black-and-white details. the sins of the city were the feature film, but it looked as the artistic comic strip for adults – gloomy, fascinating, cruel and at the same time treshevy and highly artistic.
Despite its eksperimentalnost, sins of the city successfully took place in hire, but for various, mainly legal reasons work on a sequel was tightened, and long ago promised «Sin City 2» is released just now. Whether it was necessary to wait, with bated breath, nearly ten years for the new reporting from Beysin-city? Undoubtedly, costed – if for you first "City" was first of all unexpected stylistic experiment.

Comparing any scenes of two pictures, it is easy to define, what of films was the first, and what – the second. Against «Sin City 2» the tape of 2005 seems first attempt at writing – visually a sequel where is more courageous, more effective, more uncompromising, more inventively … And komiksny. Rodriguez and Miller raised a bar at once on some divisions. Especially in an action scenes which found dynamics and the scope not peculiar to first "City". To explain on fingers, however, it it is impossible. «Sin City 2» needs to be seen to estimate, as far it was possible to leave from the art finds embodied in the previous tape.
The plot «Sin City 2», on the other hand, continually forces to bend lips. Because all ingenuity of authors, apparently, was spent for the picture. The sketch opening the film about Marva, however, is quite amusing (in chernushny sense of this word), and the short story about Dwight and Eva, at least, places a tick in traditional nuarny columns (a detective suffering by the past, many-sided femme fatale, a dreadful look the criminal boss …), though does not offer anything more entertaining, than Eve Green’s naked body. But these two histories are borrowed from Miller’s comics, and at the author, obviously, there was time over them to think. Two other short stories are thought up specially for the film and consequently are composed quick, with an inspiration and wit minimum.
Especially the short story about Johnny where obviously there should be sudden subject turns and smart «plans in plans» in the spirit of "Swindle" irritates. Instead the plot develops so rectilinearly as far as it is possible, and the ending strikes not with presence, and lack of finesse at the hero whom, it seems, not one year prepared for fight with Rork. The right, it was during this time possible to think up something cleverer, than the plan from three points with the word PROFIT at the end! The short story about Nancey is, however, even more rectilinear. But it, in effect, simply an epilogue to the first film, and its intriguing subject courses remained in 2005.
