A film by Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller
Cast: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin
It has been 9 years since the first one. The cool gritty film noir look from the comic books of Frank Miller is once again done in a film thanks to Robert Rodriguez. This time with a all start cast Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, and some new characters (played by Ray Liotta, Lady GaGa, Christopher Meloni, Christopher Lloyd, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and more). The vignette-structure returns, with a couple of additions written by Miller for the film. Joseph Gordon-Lewitt appears in one as a card shark that never losses. He wants in in a game of poker with the senator (Powers Boothe) a sadistic man. Johnny is a card shark he knows how to deal the cards. Bu the thing is they tell him not to cross the senator but Johnny days it is personal. you have Nancy who is drinking and dancing heavily because of the death of Hartigan (Bruce Willis) who was a cop who is watching her. Then there is Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin) who says from time to time never let the monster out Ava comes in in his life Eva Green as Ava who manipulate Dwight. There is a scene where she is swimming in a pool and you see the water caressing her nude body there is also a shot under water and in 3D it is even better that is beautiful cinematography at its best. Of course she is playing the femme fatale. There is so many reference in this film of film noir it is not even funny but good. The women in this tend to play dumb but they underneath they are smart they know what is going on. They use their body and their charm to get what they want. Nothing new in this film we seen it before in the first one although it is the continuation of the story from the first one. But Miller and Rodriguez stuck with their vision.
