Enough time has elapsed for this belated sequel to feel as fresh, hard-edged and visually stylish as the original 2005 neo-
comic-book adaptation. Continuations and new stories criss-cross as square-jawed bruiser Mickey Rourke awakes on a highway surrounded by bodies, toxic
Eva Green compels ex-lover Josh Brolin to kill her supposedly abusive husband, cocky gambler Joseph Gordon-Levitt plots to destroy corrupt senator Powers Boothe, and stripper Jessica Alba seeks vengeance for Bruce Willis's death. Once again it's all elegantly rendered in dazzling, textured monochrome sharpened by key colour splashes (red lips, orange flame, pink feathers), with its keen graphic novel perspectives creating stunning collages from the jazzy, smoky mix of gumshoe gore and hard-boiled brutality. Played stark and straight by the stellar cast (Green's copious nudity might surprise), perhaps it is slightly one-note. Yet this bolder vision conveys the essence of co-director Frank Miller's art better than ever.
Compilation of four stories of crime and betrayal set in a dangerous city. An honourable thug dishes out some vigilante justice, a private eye falls for the machinations of a femme fatale, a gambler gets in over his head, and a stripper plots revenge. Crime thriller sequel based on the comic-book series, starring Eva Green, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Josh Brolin.
