Other then that if your a fanIf you want to see Eva Green **** throughout a movie in Black & White, then this is your MOVIE "Sin City 2"!!! Other then that if your a fan of the first Sin City, prepare to be very very disappointed and be out of $7 bucks and 2 hours of your LIFE!!! Because it's that KIND OF BAD and not the BAD in a GOOD WAY!!!
Oh where to begin??? First off, I don't think Frank Miller really had a concept for this sequel, other then having him self inserted into mult - roles throughout this movie like he's Stan Lee clones of clones in a Marvel Movie about the Clones of Stan Lee cameo roles!!!
As, CONTINUITY must be a word not used by Frank Miller or not familiar with i e, such as actors not reprising their same roles from the original Devon Aoki as Miho, Clive Owen as Dwight and I can not count Michael Clarke Duncan (May he R.I.P) as Manute but his character did get killed during the final shootout in "Old Town" in the first Sin City because they couldn't leave any survivors??? Right??? But leave it to that All State Guy to stay the day! NOT!!!
And that's the thing about this movie, on one hand it wants to be a continuation from the first Sin City but also at the time not be!!! Such by adding non related material to the movie; Joseph Gordon-Levitt character "Johnny" who whole story arc had literally nothing to do with nothing with the movie but at the same time let's show Nancy Callahan going thru a deep state of depression over the death of Hartigan but then at the same time with no separation of the storyline throw in the back story of Dwight getting his face change episode!!!
And I did I mention Jaime King plays both Goldie / Wendy on screen at the same time, knowing that Goldie was killed in the beginning of the first Sin City!!! WTF!!?!??! I mean, if your going to use character cameos from the first Sin City, then why not used Alexis Bledel as Becky, Benicio Del Toro as Jackie Boy or how about bringing back Josh Hartnett as The Man to explain his story arc to how he knew Becky in the final elevator scene then Johnny!!!
No No No, must have said Frank Miller to that idea because that would have taken too much time being that it's been 10 years between movies to make this PIECE OF **** SIN CITY 2!!!!
And for this Frank Miller, I say to YOU: STOP MAKING SEQUELS TO MOVIES THAT DO NOT NEED ONE!!! STOP RUINING MY MEMORIES OF SOME OF FAVORITE MOVIES THAT I HAVE COME TO LOVE IN SIN CITY AND 300!!! YOU NEED TO STOP DOING THIS TO YOUR REMAINING FANS!!! WAS NOT THE SPIRIT ENOUGH DAMAGE TO YOUR BRAND NAME???

And, a little sad irony here is that Life dot Com site mention in the film ended January 2012 in real life!!! Also, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty really did not showcase the legacy or their importance to the WORLD; through their Pictures!!!
In truth, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty plays out more like a infomercial movie for "Life Takes Visa" Commercials!!! Except; Mr. Mitty is burning a hole through his savings doing all this searching self discovery journey; portraying a "Where in the World is Matt Lauer/Carmen Sandiego?" episode...
Along with a running gag against eHarmony Dating Site to say in short: "You will find love by living life then clicking one profile at a time"!!!
Final: There is no real closure in the film... Your kinda left hoping that Walter Mitty will be all right, with his new found self... At last, like all our ventures in "Life"... Get it!?!… Expand
Average User Score: 6.3Dec 26, 2013RetroView25, Here again and 47Ronin is not is not a film to waste 2 hours of your life on to watch!!!
Number One I understand the factRetroView25, Here again and 47Ronin is not is not a film to waste 2 hours of your life on to watch!!!
Number One I understand the fact that the story needs a half-breed character to tell this story but why does Hollywood constantly keep using caucasian actors to play the lead role of a character who based on ethic descent from the source material!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Dragonball Evolution circa 2009 anyone???
And YES: Keanu Reeves does have Chinese and Hawaiian descent from his Grandmother side, but a Half-Breed in Japanese culture usually means a Korean or someone having both Chinese & Japanese descent within them!!! Keanu Reeves comes off as a white guy not as a Half-Breed in this film!!! This is not the Matrix!!! And you saw how well "Man of Tai Chi" circa 2013 did for Mr. Reeves box office success at the box office, for his next role to be "Superman"; Get It !?!
Second: Why was the CGI so horrible??? Bringing flashbacks of "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" circa 2013... As, they spent $225 million on the budget on what??? Costumes???
Thirdly: If you came to watch for some High Entertaining Fight Scenes then YOU will leave severely wanting!!! I mean, Kai is supposed to have "Special Powers" which translate into seeing a fox with different colored eyes and some kind of Steve Winwood "Valerie" music video jump move performed twice in the film!!! You better off watching "The Blind Swordsman Zatoichi" circa 2003 or Rurouni Kenshin live action film circa 2012 instead for Feudal Japan Period films!!!
For extra credit: Azumi series, Ichi (2008), Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai (2011) and The Twilight Samurai (2002)...
Fourth: The translation of this beautiful and epic story got turned into a paint by the numbers picture film, that had more bathroom break scenes to make it a tv movie having built in commercial breaks... Where was the editing or pacing of this film to make it worth being TWO HOURS LONG!!! I got had easily slice it down into ONE HOUR including credit rolls!!! It's that type of film folks!!!
And lastly: What is with Hollywood having caucasian actors being the SAVIOR of another race or last of their kind!?!!?! What is UP with that??? The Last Samurai circa 2003 anyone??? Anyone??? The Last of the Mohicans Circa 1992 or Dances with Wolves circa 1990... Are YOU getting the picture to see the picture...
I would love to see a movie title Last of Caucasian" being played by a Lead Asian Role; now that would be irony to see that!!! LOL… Expand
Average User Score: 7.2Dec 26, 2013RetroView25 here again and "The Wolf of Wall Street" is a masterpiece of what a "ADULT CONTENT MOVIE FOR A MATURE AUDIENCE" should all beRetroView25 here again and "The Wolf of Wall Street" is a masterpiece of what a "ADULT CONTENT MOVIE FOR A MATURE AUDIENCE" should all be about and MORE!!! It's not about the SEX & Drugs content in the movie and trust me there's PLENTY OF THAT in it, but it is how to tell a fascinating story THAT is beyond belief to be REAL!!! Which will make it a Rental favorite for it's "UnRated Version", as the theatrical version was cut down from a NC 17 to a HARD R!!! (This film is not yet rated circa 2006) Anyone!?!
This 3 HOURS EPIC Movie has excellent pacing to never get dull, while trying to hold your urine for that bathroom break scene that will never come in the movie!!! As, it just keeps getting better and better as the scenes goes on topping the next previous one connecting into one intriguing story of Jordan Belfort Rise and Fall on Wall Street!!!
If Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't win a Oscar for Best Actor, then it's a FRAUD!!! Because, DiCaprio delivered some of the BEST motivational speeches EVER HEARD throughout a movie, that were just PRICELESS to hear, ranking up there with a Tony Robbins motivation speech or Vince Lombardi in "Second Effort" circa 1968 which is the HOLY GRAIL for salespeople to watch!!!
I mean, YOU FEEL EVERY BOOMING FOUL MOUTH WORD COMING OUT of DiCaprio's MOUTH!!! Telling you, "GO OUT THERE & MAKE YOURSELF SOME Mother Fudging Money"!!! And, It is empowering to HEAR as watching must see TV!!! And, the graphic language used in this film is VERY HEAVY with 414 F-Bombs dropped, clearly topping another Highly Acclaimed mature theme film called "Glengarry Glen Ross" circa 1992 with 138 used!!! As, The Wolf of Wall Street ranks number 5 on the all-time list of films that use the "F Word" !!!
So, IF YOU ARE A MATURE ADULT then this will be the movie for you to watch!!! As, there are far and in between movies nowadays contenting Adult themes with everything being gear towards young adolescent, like those neuter comic book movies (X-Men series, Wolverine, Spiderman) or those teenie horror movies (Mortal Instruments, Warm Bodies,Vampire Academy, etc.)!!!… Expand
