Here are some more reviews on Eva’s performance in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Click on the Source links for the full film review.

 

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is more low-key than the first Sin City, but it’s also a more enjoyable romp thanks to another grand Eva Green star turn….For reasons I cannot entirely justify, I was less annoyed by both factors this time around. Maybe I’m just more forgiving in my old age. Or maybe Eva Green makes everything better….Eva Green of course plays the titular “dame to kill for,” which is a fine example of truth in advertising. Just as she almost single-handedly elevated 300: Rise of an Empire above its predecessor earlier this year, Ms. Green powers the main story and provides a solid counter-balance to the original film in which most of the women were victims. 

– Scott Mendelson for Forbes, Review: Eva Green Owns ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

Green has described Ava as less a woman — and she is allwoman — than a weapon, an improvised erotic device that explodes in the heart, guts and gonads of every man she meets…As for the sex: that’s Ava. She is the prime force of evil, and Green is the new movie’s reason for being. In a film era that mostly ignores womanly allure for guy-on-guy battles and bromance, Green has played the unregenerate temptress from The Dreamers (her debut) to 300: Rise of an Empire, with the miniseries Camelot and Penny Dreadful in between. But Ava was the role waiting for her. 

– Richard Corliss for TIME, Review: Eva Green is The Dame To Kill For in ‘Sin City 2’

Ms Green, thrillingly cruel, detached and dangerous, offers atonement. She seduces the audience as she seduces her men, with blinding confidence, and keeps the film from sliding towards blandness. The plot and the script might not always be to kill for, but the dame sure is.

– F.S. for Economist, New Film: ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

The film’s greatest assets are Gordon-Levitt and Green, who remains as coolly aloof as a circling eagle, despite spending much of the film naked in a variety of provocative poses.
