Sin City 2 – sexist potrayal of women, but cool visual stylings.

Sin City 2I recently watched Sin City 2 and the animation and style of it was very cool and entertaining.  The action scenes were brutal yet well executed.  However, the sexism and portrayal of women, of course, was not missed (nor was it surprising considering this was a Sin City adaptation). However it was still disappointing having to see women being identified as simply sexually appealing characters for the entertainment of the targeted audience.

Each character’s different plots intertwined nicely and no character showed up without a reason.  The back stories all began with their separate (sometimes shared) antagonist. The acting was really great as well, showing quite raw emotion.  This movie impressed me despite the somewhat incredibly cheesy moments and cliché tag lines, and I do recommend it but please be cautious of the more intense moments in the film.
