“Crime” is enjoyable enough, but it’s more an appetizer than a meal that will make you wanting a second helping of “Jackie Brown” or “Out of Sight.”

If “Dame” wasn’t a sequel treading on the tail of “Sin City,” it might be the real deal. As is, it’s borrowing, embracing, but not necessarily furthering.
This film is overlong, with a script of macho twaddle, but little of that matters when the explosions take center stage and guns blaze, and some of the casting retains its charm.
