Trailer Review: Sin City – A Dame To Kill For
The new Sin City trailer is out, but all I can say is… ok. Definitely a few cool visuals, and some memorable dialog lines that hint at a conflict driven plot. Beyond that however, the trailer doesn’t give us much. Not having any background information about the Sin City story (beyond having seen the first movie), I don’t have any real sense of what the movie might be about – and consequently, whether it’s of interest. Admittedly, I’ll almost certainly see the movie – if only for the unique style, the gratuitous violence that I love, and curiosity as to the development of the story line from the first movie. On its own though, this first trailer is a bit of a letdown for me – I’m not at the edge of my seat looking for more, or even counting down the days until the movie’s release. Rather, my two minute overview based on this trailer is: I’ll catch it on DVD.
My hope here is that their strategy is one of buildup – showing better and more compelling content with each trailer to come, until release date – making this one seem like more of a teaser. My fear however, is that there may not be more compelling footage to show. Given the talent of the individuals involved in the production, I strongly doubt that to be the case – and if in fact I were betting, would put my money on future trailers revealing more compelling footage. For the time being however, I’m reservedly hesitant about the movie.
