Sin City is four stories inter-weaved telling tales of corruption in Basin City. The first story (The Customer is always right) is short, and is based on the depression of women that they need to pay a man to feel loved when they commit suicide. The next story is Part 1 of That Yellow Bastard about a cop who needs to save a young girl from being raped. The third story (The Hard Goodbye) features a man taking revenge on a heartless killer who murdered his one-night stand. The fourth story (The Big, Fat Kill) stars a man who must dispatch a cops body, but it will be a tough ride to do it. Following that are two conclusions to Sin City, the ending of That Yellow Bastard which is set 8 years later, and a short story that ends Sin City.

I have more respect than affection for this admittedly successful effort to give a film the feel of a graphic novel.
As I have previously stated, I am a comic book fan, and one of fewgirls to be so. I love blood, and violence, and gore, and fighting, andall that other stuff. I read by someone who commented on this moviethat it was sexist against females, and the only people who couldpossibly enjoy this movie were males. To that, I say to you: I am aGIRL, and I enjoyed this movie.Yes, there will be blood. Is that supposed to shock you? It shouldn't.Yes, there is violence. The title suggests that and more. But if youthink to take a look at the comic book, the book has that too.You'renot required to like it, or watch it. If you don't like violence, orblood, or gore, go watching something else. I rest my case.I LOVED this movie. What a stunning display of cinematography! First ofall, I love the stylized representation of the film in general. Youfeel as if you had actually been sucked into the comic book. I alsolove how Robert Rodriguez, who I am a fan of, chose to highlightcertain colors to bring out the feel of the movie, such as red, blueand yellow. I also liked the way in which the movies were shot. It maysurprise some, or perhaps not, to know that this entire movie is one ofthe first to be shot almost entirely on green screen with a digitalfilm screening system. The backgrounds, the city...all digital. What anachievement. And for those who bought the Extended Version of thismovie like I did, you can view the entire movie in green screen(fast-foward motion, by the way) to see how they achieved certainthings in principal photography. Get the Extended Version, you won't besorry. I wasn't. Yes, it was very violent. But so was Saw, and peopleenjoyed that. 90% of movies today have some amount of violence in them.But the violence, however overdone it may appear, is inevitable if youwere to be shooting a comic book such as Sin City. The same amount ofviolence is present in the comic book as well. Check if you don'tbelieve me. Yes, there was nudity. Perhaps that is where many girls gotup and left the theater, or called it "sexist". As to me, I just sortof looked the other way and said to my boyfriend: "Those poorgirls.They'll have all the perverted guys knowing them forever now."Newsflash to the same people who called this sexist and pornographic:1. It is a comic book. What do you expect?2. It is an R-rated movie. Of course there will be some risquÃ© scenesit!3. Pornography isn't shown in public movie theaters.Just like the comic book, this movie has (4) stories: 1. "The Customer is Always Right": A hit-man (Josh Hartnett) isdispatched to kill a broad (Marley Shelton) who fears that she is indanger from someone else.2. "The Hard Goodbye": A tough-guy (Mickey Rourke) wakes up to discoverthat the seductive, gorgeous woman he happened to pick up that night(Jamie King) has been silently murdered by a stealthy, cannibalisticserial killer (Elijah Wood), and tries to work his way down to thetruth of it all.3. "The Big Fat Kill": A barmaid (Brittany Murphy) runs into troublewith an ex (Benicio del Toro), and her new boyfriend (Clive Owen) helpsprostitute Gail (Rosario Dawson) and fellow prostitutes fight mob-menin the alleyways of Sin City.4. "That Yellow Bastard": Determined ex-cop (Bruce Willis) relives howhe met the love of his life (Jessica Alba) by saving her from a rapist,and works hard to save her once again from a mutated, sadistic killer(Nick Stahl).*: There is a minor scene at the end of the movie that was addedspecifically for the movie, featuring one traitorous (see "The Big FatKill" story) prostitute (Alexis Bledel) and the fate that befalls herfrom a certain hit-man (Josh Hartnett).The cast that made up these stories were exceptional. What really tookme by surprise was seeing Mickey Rourke as the perfect incarnation ofMarv. Who knew Rourke could box and act? I also was really amazed bythe fierceness and kick-ass fighting of the women in "The Big FatKill". That's right, the WOMEN were the best ass-kickers in the wholemovie. Even the guys will agree. Still think this movie is a sexistfilm? This movie is certainly not a family film, but for those who canappreciate it, it's one hell of a ride.9/10 stolen trench-coats. Take a tour of Sin City.
Looks absolutely amazing, but it remains an exercise in style over substance that never gets beneath our skin.
As creative as the trailers were, I expected much more. Yes this filmis aesthetically pleasing and contains all the gratuitous violence onecomes to expect from Rodriguez/Tarantino, but c'mon. I can appreciatethe comic book feel but this is quite possibly the most overrated filmI've ever seen. Well second only to De Palma's Scarface of course. Iwas apprehensive to watch Sin City for fear of holding it against theextremely talented cast. When I finally broke down to watch it Icounldn't have been more disappointed. Not even the gorgeous womenincluding that of Alexis Bliedel, James King, Carla Gugino, and JessicaAlba could save this poorly written and poorly acted computer generatedpile of trash. It's worth noting Jessica Alba, attractive as she maybe, is exceptionally terrible. The best part of this movie, besides itfinally ending, is trying to figure out what I hate the most about it.Was it Nick Stahl looking like the creature from 'Mac & Me', was itJessica Alba awkwardly making out with Bruce Willis, was it the lack ofchemistry between Rosario Dawson and Clive Owen, was it Brittany Murphyattempting to act,or was it the horrible voice overs fromRourke/Willis? Yeah it was all of those things. Elijah Wood was good...he didn't talk. I'm gonna go watch Dick Tracy now!!! At least everyoneadmits that one's bad!!!
Contrary to the heading, the movie indeed was a visual fest. Hereyou'll see storyboards come to life with the editor not sleeping on thejob. He plays with the shots, cuts them to effect fast paced action andwows the audience with a smÃ¶rgÃ¥sbord of cinema techniques. Thecinematography too is commendable. One gets the feel of lights andshadows, of danger and evil lurking around, of real film noir! Themovie wouldn't work that well if it were in full color. Good that thedirector stuck with the comics' original color. Lastly, if you're infor an action (slash) violent treat, this movie is for you. Because ofthe explicitness of brutality, one will get numb somewhere in themiddle of the film and then comes the down slope (?) of the movie......the movie is a three part episode thinly connected with each other.Perhaps if one will give more time for reflection she can connect theepisodes with each other (really, what for?!).Honestly, I have no idea what the film is about. I haven't gotten myhands on the comics to which this was based. After the hefty load ofvisuals, what next? The story is empty and you'll definitely leave thecineplex with nothing.The movie though can inspire a discussion on what movies can show asregards violence and gore. What is art? How far can art go? A lot ofplot twisted hyperboles were present in the movie, such as theinvincible character of its protagonists and the monstrous nature ofthe characters (well, it's sin city, that's why!) . But the questionstill remains, what is sin city about? What does it want to tell itsaudience? Does art not aim to uplift the human condition? Does cinemamimic life for mimicry alone or does it want to tell something to thevoyeur audience? Isn't the voyeuristic character of cinema designed togive its audience a glimpse of who and what they are? Is cinema simplyfor cinematic technique appreciation alone or for something else more?With these questions, perhaps Sin City is not a waste after all. You'llleave the movie house with baffling questions about art, cinema, andlife in general. Then, the movie is not a failure after all... youmight not like it but let me tell you, there's more to the violence andgore than meets the eye.
I didn't think this movie was that great. The story reminds me of acartoon. People keep getting shot, even in the head but never die.There are impossible car chase scenes and some guy named Kevin, whomust be half vampire. He can jump 6 feet in the air and apparentlylikes human flesh. There are 3 different stories and all three of themain characters end up at this same strip joint but they don't knoweach other.It was violent but not realistic. You have a few red splatters ofblood. People get knifed, have their throat slashed, and even beheaded.And the guy that gets beheaded won't die. He's got something in hishead but won't die. Then his face still moves after he's beheaded. Itwas just too silly.And the gun toting prostitutes were silly. All they were there for isto prance around in skimpy outfits. It just didn't make a lot of sense.FINAL VERDICT: I don't recommend it. I don't want to see a serious filmthat is more like a cartoon.
Sin City, a film noir spectacular, created by the one and only FrankMiller (responsible for some of the greatest Batman stories ever told)was, by far 2005's best film. It was stylish, intense, funny, actionpacked, but most importantly, a spectacular film.Right from the start you know you're not in for a normal one hour andthirty minute run-of- the-mill movie. It grabs you by the collar ofyour trench coat and pulls you into its tales of sexy dames, killerswith hearts of gold and ultra-violence.The violence, and boy, is there a lot, isn't to much to handle, thanksto the MPAA forcing Robert Rodriguez to cut out some blood, isperfectly executed. It matches panel for panel the genius comic thatMiller created and wrote. It never gets to be to much to handle, andmost importantly you care deeply for the characters by the time themovies done with.The acting was stellar, with Mickey Rourke and Clive Owen giving theperformances of their careers. Rourke especially as the big lug knownsimply as Marv.All in all, the film was a great success. I loved every minute of it.Definitely a must-see for anyone who's a fan of the graphic novels.
This film has exceeded my expectations, and my expectations whereextremely high. I have great respect for Director Robert Rodriguez,more so than his little buddy Tarrantino, don't get me wrong I likeTarrantino, but Rodriguez deserves more credit. He does most of thework, Cinematographer, Editor, Director, etc. The Man is responsiblefor his own work. Anyway back to the film, I enjoyed every last minuteof it, I thought that the stories where all so interesting and wellwritten that I found my self lost in every one of them, to the pointwhere I almost forgot that I was watching a different story, and thatthere was even a story before it. Whoever the critic is that writes inthe Dallas morning News, let me just say that I do not like this guy.He said how the stories weren't deep enough or along those lines. Wellthey are short stories genius, and its not gone with the wind dramatic,for its genre which I would place it in new age film noir, its perfect,though it is 100% a guy movie, it is one of my new favorites, itsperfect, the scene composition is beautifully done, and the colors,though obvious make the dominant and the intrinsic interest of thescene become alive, straight out of the comic..... I loved this movie -Nathan
From start to finish you are in BaSin City. No explanations, noupdates, just the facts. Everything revolves around bringing arecognisable yet outlandish comic noir world to screen - the effectsare completely slave to this one master. The format is Pulp Fiction,the violence is Reservoir Dogs, the action is From Dusk Till Dawn. Theresult is in some ways more satisfying than all of these.The performances are pitch perfect. The only slightly bum note is CliveOwen, who has a little difficulty with his performance. He doesn't havethe background or depth to really pull his character off - too manyBrit flicks have tainted his ability to act. Everyone else knows theterritory and come off the page without effort.So pull on your mac, get into your hard top and get some action inBasin City.
The general vibe about this film was very good, so I was really lookingforward to seeing it. The first thing to say about the film is that itlooks fantastic. I believe that several of the scenes were shot withthe actors at different times with some of them not even meeting.Anyone that excuses some of the acting/direction of the Star Warsprequels due to difficulties in blue screen is clearly shown that thiscan work.The opening sequence with Bruce Willis is very good. The dialoguethroughout has some high points and the acting is generally very good.All the components are in place for a fantastic movie, butunfortunately the film doesn't engage the audience. The film is veryviolent, but it's of the Tom and Jerry variety and therefore I wouldn'tsay the film is particularly shocking. Overall it's well worth seeingat the cinema for the look, but probably isn't one for repeatedviewings.
All three main stories were stunning and not predictable, thus theviewer was amazed with everything that happened. The dialogs are feastfor the ears and they will stick in your mind for a long time:"Marv:These are the old days, the bad days, the all-or-nothing days.They're back! There's no choice left. And I'm ready for war."The Actors were excellent, I think it is the right place to mentionBrittany Murphy which was a good actress and a good person,we all willmiss her.The black and white render and the soundtrack made the movie a uniqueexperience. In my point of view the film had nothing to complain about. It isdesigned for man and awakes the 'he-man' at everyone.
This was one of the most overdone movies i have ever seen. It takesbackseat only to the movie catwoman as the worst movie I have everseen. In the first scene of the movie when i first heard the voiceovers I thought it was kinda cool how they were really doing it likethey would do a comic book. The coloring was superb but the bad actingand simply gore just tipped the scale for the worse. As much as I loveClive Owen, Benicio Del Toro, Jessica Alba, and Bruce Willis, I wasextremely disappointed. Another strike against the movie was theacting, or lack thereof, from Elijah Wood, not only is he a bad actorto begin with (When i didn't here him talk that was a plus) but hispart was awful, with his overdone smiles and stupid heads on the wallsof his house. The excess of nudity (which I'm not complaining about inmost things, I mean who doesn't want to see a stacked rack) was justtoo much and it took away from anything the movie might have had. Asfor the violence and torture, I'm all for it if it isn't over done. Letme rephrase because overdone is an understatement. The movie took theidea of gore and violence killed it, shot it hacked it up into tinypieces and ran over with a car, but not before letting a dog eat theentrails of the corpse which is cinema. All in all out of the thousandsof movies i have seen the bottom five include this, catwoman, gigli.
This is the most visually stunning piece of Sinema (see what i didthere) I have seen in a long while. I had never read the graphic novelsbefore but now I have and they are so well represented by Rodriguez andCo.Rourke is superb as Marv and i am now as i write this looking for theposter to put in my room although the one i want is about Â£12 aaahh.The three stories are every bit as brilliant as the three tales in PulpFiction and i say this with the biggest respect to Pulp as it is myfavourite film of all time. A film that is not to be missed, fans ofthe original novels will not be disappointed and since Sin City 2 willbe on the way soon i think that we are going to see more of the samewhich in my opinion isn't bad at all. If you haven't seen this filmit's OK as it is now out on DVD, although i am disappointed with theextras available on it hopefully there will be another with lots ofextras.If the world was a better place then it would get a couple of Oscarnominations but it won't. The Academy is just sad
"Sin City" is a loathsomely gorgeous creation, perhaps the mostbrutally depraved concept to audaciously deem itself an aesthetic pieceof art- it's a harrowing portrait of the decadence of a grotesquecriminal underworld, supplanting elements of gore and vengeance forcongenial cinematic structure, yet dare I castigate the film for thosereasons- rather, it's a disgustingly beautiful contrivance of mostingenious proportions. "Sin City" is a dazzlingly bleak portrait of atruly grimy universe: bang, bang, slash, slash, yeah baby, yeah, bang,bang, etc. Instead of reducing itself to a formulaic, machismo gorefest, "Sin City" transcends its depravity into aesthetic, artisticbrilliance- adhering to an atmosphere of darkness with obscure shading,and punctuating elements of ugliness, aberration, and awfulness withassorted hues, and the effect is that the depravity and vileness thatconstitute "Sin City" are more gorgeous and delectable elements thanever, and one develops a guilty satiation for otherwise deplorable andodious content. In "Pulp Fiction" chronology, it tells three dismal,grotesque stories of vengeance involving many scathing, loathsomepeople (all of whom are destined to the road to perdition if theyhaven't already visited there) and as we find ourselves immersed in adecaying world of murder, lust, mayhem, and redemption, there is anundeniable intoxication about the style that makes the entire"grueling" experience nothing less than deadly gorgeous eye candy, andthis is sheer cinematic greatness, if nothing else. Make no bones aboutit, the film is not content to be sensitive to its grisly subjectmatter, and never compromises vile obscenity and lascivious sexual punsin its dialog, nor mortifying, nauseating violence, nor bare fleshnudity (whether bewitching or bestial), because "Sin City", for betteror for worse, is unabashed to its nature, and faithfully exacerbatesits graphic content into naked, blemished art for the inquisitive,lustful eye. The grizzly narrative will give you a good idea of thecharacters' senses as well as the theme, if you haven't alreadyregistered that this is about as drably noir as they come. Performancesare polished to perfection, and each actor reserves dimensions tootherwise one-dimensional characters (Mickey Rourke is pitch-perfect atconveying angst and machismo, yet mortifying grief and apprehension inhis relentless pursuit of vengeance, while Benicio Del Toro (headattached) is sneeringly villainous and charming, and Bruce Williscarries the persona of a hit-man with a heart of gold), in threecleverly united stories of vengeance that all culminate in despair foreach. A truly deplorable concept of a film, highlighted by discomposedheads, repulsive flesh, grisly murder and mayhem- all electrified asone uncannily gorgeous creation that solidifies itself as a true cultclassic delivering all the luscious eye candy and noir that film buffswill be salivating over, and then some. Who would've imagined a worldof ugliness and filth could be so wholesomely glittering with beautyand genius? Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez have realized just thatwith this marvelous "Sin City", certainly worth an engaging trip to thedark side of humanity- and beauty. **** out of ****
Sin City is probably one of the most satisfied movies I've ever seen interms of cinematography. It has the look and touch of a real comic bookfilm; watching it is almost like reading a virtual comic-book.Actually, everything visual in the film is spot on, right from theediting to the direction. The film is just pure eye candy, and Iseriously doubt that any comic book adaptation, besides Burton's"Batman", will ever come close. While cinematography is not the onlymain ingredient for a comic book adaptation to be great, Sin City hasall of the important ingredients it takes to be a great film, meaningyou don't even have to be a comic-book fan to enjoy this.For example a great supporting cast, with the likes of Michael Madsen,Elijah Wood, Benicio Del Toro, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, BrittanyMurphy and Josh Hartnett. Pretty much all of them are providing greatscreen presence throughout the entire film. The lead roles carry theshow perfectly. Despite Mickey Rourke stealing the show, Clive Owen andBruce Willis deliver brilliant, arguably career-defining performances.The powerful narrative from both Willis, Rourke and Owen adds a lot tothe atmosphere, and (on top of the cinematography and direction) makesyou feel that you are actually part of the film.Sin City is hard and brutal. It is a pure comic book movie, yet itfeels so realistic, both to look at but also the reality portrayed. Ifound myself rooting for the characters, and feeling sympathy for themdespite their dark nature. To add the cherry on top, the screenplay wasperfect.Art movies usually fail because they lack a certain amount ofentertainment. Sin City walks a very fine line between style andentertainment, and holds your attention for two and a half hours,without a single dull moment. There's basically something for everyoneto enjoy (except for minors, or for the faint of heart), but for thoseof us who want our comic book movies rated mature, with great writing,intriguing plot, unforgettable performances, excellently portrayedrealism and absolutely terrific cinematography, this film is amilestone in the history of comic book adaptations. I love this movie,and I am truly looking forward to Sin City 2 & 3.Moose finds this film worthy of a 10.
I saw an advanced screening of Sin City on March 16 and thought a lotabout it. It was a very modern film noir type of movie with predictableevents. the predictability didn't ruin the movie though and that'ssomething hard to do. the dialog really matched the characters well.there were a few low points. One that included Brittany Murphy'scharacter. she seemed to have overacted compared to the other actors.Josh Hartnett seemed like he was just hanging there. He came, went, andcame back without much of story. They didn't explain what or who hewas. One might have to watch it a couple of times to "maybe" understandhis role in the movie. The beginning was a little slow, but picked upthe pace within the first ten minutes. there were many high points andthat's what made me like and appreciate the movie for what it wastrying to be. the action scenes were impressively good. it was funnyseeing Elija Wood anything other than the hobbit, but he pulled it offwell. the cinematography, lighting, and editing was very good and keptme hooked on each scene. it's usually hard to stay focused on a B&Wmovie. I give it an 8 out of 10 or B.
I always said that when it comes to a live concert you always know it'sgood when it appears like the band is having more fun than theaudience. Well, in the case of Frank Miller's "Sin City" it appears asthough Miller and veteran filmmaker Robert Rodriguez had more funmaking this film than we do watching it.The film is compiled nearly panel for panel, word for word fromMiller's groundbreaking series of graphic novels. This is obviously alabor of love and it is so evident to the viewer while taking it allin.There is no screen writing credit because they worked directly from thecomics and Rodriguez was kicked out of the Director's Guild of Americawhen he insisted that Miller get co-credit for directing the film.After all, he set up all the shots years earlier when he created thecomic, both drawing and writing it from scratch.This film had me on the edge of my seat from the intro to the endkeeping my eyes wide open, causing them to dry up a bit because Icouldn't manage to keep my peepers off the beautifully glorious blackand white opera of violence that unfolded before me.The film is three different stories, all taking place in Basin City.The sign entering the town has the BA in BASIN spray painted out, henceSIN CITY. The stories involve crooked senators and priests,cannibalistic serial killers, pedophiles, murderers, strippers andmore. Surprisingly it all fits together rather well. Though theviolence may be a bit much for some I found it to be justified rightand proper. After all, this film is based on a disturbing series ofgraphic novels that never tried to dull itself down, but insteadembraced its characters and respected the intelligence and taste of itsreaders.The cast is absolutely perfect from the amazingly beautiful JessicaAlba as stripper Nancy Callahan, to Bruce Willis as the over-the-hillwith a bum-ticker Cop, John Hartigan, to Mickey Rourke as Marv, therevenge filled monster out for blood. I believe that this is Rourke'sfinest performance as an actor and I would probably award him as theBest Supporting Actor of the Year. Although Jake Gyllenhaal (BrokebackMountain), George Clooney (Syriana), Ed Harris (A History of Violence),and Paul Giamatti (Cinderella Man) were all excellent, I don't thinkthey carried their respective films the way Rourke did here. Let's alsonot forget Rutger Hauer and Clive Owen throwing in some head turningroles in this comic-book movie masterpiece.All in all, a brilliant Tour-De-Force from journeyman Robert Rodriguezwho did everything from Visual Effects Superviser, to editing, tocinematography, to sound re-recording mixer, to co-directing of course.A definite 10 out of 10 and one of the best films all year.
I walked into this film not expecting a great deal. Thought it would beanother Kill Bill that was all style and no substance. A film that withso many actors vying for decent screen time would dilute a story into aglorified pantomime.What a great surprise so see a film that is refreshingly adult, cool tolook at and has involving stories. I wasn't sure how I would get onwith the high contrast comic book look to the film but it actuallyworks. The fact that they set the world, its physics, what does anddoesn't work from the beginning means that you have a control for yourintelligence to lock onto. For instance someone might get shot 10 timesand still be alive which although preposterous to begin with seemsnormal once you become involved with the film. It also sticks to theseguidelines so you don't a get a normal fight one minute and thenanother where the confines of gravity seem to have been forgotten thenext.It's so good to see a film that isn't afraid to be squarely aimed atadults. Women have sex but then are not unrealistically scrambling forthe covers to hide their nakedness, the revenge motives are playedthrough to their natural conclusion without characters going soft andthe blood is liberally applied to blows and injuries.Mickey Rourke is sensational. I never used to like him as he was quitearrogant in his early days but falling on hard times and forced to do'straight to video' b movies seemed to provide him with some humilityand allows me to appreciate his craft even more. His story is the bestof the three. Bruce Willis is also on top form and the rest of the castdeliver very good performances. Clive Owen was a little weak, I don'trate him as that accomplished an actor and for me it showed. But thiscouldn't dampen the creative flair, the depth of story or sheerbrutality of the action. There is plenty of female flesh on show (mostof it very nice), a smattering of humour where needed, generous amountsof violence delivered with gusto and crunching sound effects and a goodscore.Overall I was very impressed. An enjoyable film that was great to lookat as well as being involving and rewarding to watch.
The art style and film-making are truly a masterpiece. The story itselfis dull, lame, predictable, clichÃ©, and in the end 100% forgettable.I'll start with the action. To be blunt, there is hardly any at all.When the action happens it is lame and uninspired. It reminded me ofdumbed down action scenes from Spider-Man, but even that is too much ofa complement. Most of the film is nothing but people walking around andtalking about things that make no difference.So, with all the talking scenes and characterization scenes you'dexpect the plot to be, you know, at least a plot. Oh, how wrong thatassumption is. There is no plot. The mini stories that somehow are kindof a plot mixed together are generally boring, and entirely clichÃ©.You've seen these mini stories on cartoons before.But it doesn't even have the same level of fun, original cartoony feel.It's more like a bad cartoonÂlike Tom and JerryÂthat has grown up butnever matured. It just feels . . . awkward and boring. Like a40-year-old man doing something like a 5-year-old. It's just lame.This style of mature cartoony-fantasy has been NAILED in video gameslike Killer 7, which hone the originality and innocence of cartoons,but mix it with mean-spirited ultra-violence. Movies like Kill Billalso get it down. But Sin City simply doesn't know how to do that in away that isn't boring and clichÃ©.But, as I said, it's truly a masterpiece in style. Too bad that stylewasn't used for something original and clichÃ©-defining, instead of alame Spider-Man wannabe with some dumbed-down blood to make it seemaction packed when I've seen more action watching people walk by myback yard.. . . and I wish I was joking.1/10
Simply stated this is the best Comic to Movie adaption ever produced yet.Usually Hollywood tries to re-create something that is already an established and popular media and ruins it in the process by changing the things that made it popular in the first place.Not here..... Sin City looks and feels like a comic come to life.Why only 4 stars you ask ?................WARNING VAGUE GENERAL SPOILER BELOW...........................................The only reason I give the movie 4 stars instead of 5 is the same reason I quit reading Miller's comics in the first place.In his dim "Sin City" world, the heroes rarely win the War, they only win the battles.Now I don't always want a cheery happy ending... but from time to time it would be nice to see a hero in Miller's world actually survive !
