When I originally saw the first "Sin City trailer" I was stocked. I didn't know what it was, where it originated from or how it would turn out. I only thought it was going to be magical and indeed it was. I can't say I feel the same about its sequel.
Robert Rodriquez and Frank Miller are completely two different directors nowadays, then when they first made "Sin City". For one Rodriquez hadn't still lost his touch with being the experimental and edgy director he once was known for and Frank Miller wasn't tested as filmmaker on his own with "The Spirit" just yet.
Be that as it may, this film could still be the crowd pleaser, I just don't think it will be as groundbreaking as the first film and I believe that to be a certainty.
