SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR (MOVIE REVIEW)
|Mickey Rourke as Marv and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny|
There are four stories at work here. Some are better than others. The first segment opens with a bang with Marv (Mickey Rourke) serving justice on a bunch of preppy punks. Next up we’re introduced to a gambler named Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) whose luck may be coming to an end when he comes up against the crooked Senator Roarke (Powers Boothe).

|Powers Boothe as Senator Roarke|
The acting albeit slightly exaggerated, is quite good. Mickey Rourke as Marv is a standout character but it’s Eva Green who steals the show. As with 300: Rise of an Empire, Eva owns the scenes she is in. She has a way of seducing the audience into buying what she is selling. The character of Ava may have been the overall scariest villain in the entire film. Which, says a lot because of Powers Boothe who does more with a smirk than most villains do with a threatening speech.
