Movie synopsis
Adapted from Frank Miller's graphic novels, SIN CITY is Robert Rodriguez's striking film noir infused with fantasy, taking place in a world where it is eternally nighttime and everything is drenched in rain and violence. Using a unique combination of silvery black and white digital photography with occasional flashes of bright color for dazzling punctuation, Rodriguez employs green screen techniques and paints a backdrop around each scene, using Miller's co-direction as his cue to match the original setting as closely as possible. Three stories weave together, occasionally overlapping. With lines delivered flatly in the hard-boiled style of Raymond Chandler, these tales are about crime, love, loss, and being preternaturally tough. In the most caustically dramatic segment, Mickey Rourke plays the fearlessly lovestruck Marv, a trenchcoat-clad beast who falls in love with prostitute Goldie (Jaime King) only to find her murdered by a demonic cannibal (Elijah Wood). In another segment, Bruce Willis plays Hartigan, a rogue cop with a "bum ticker" whose goal in life is to save Nancy (Jessica Alba), an innocent stripper, from a murderous rapist (Nick Stahl). The third segment stars Clive Owen as a detective caught between murdered cop Jackie Boy (Benicio Del Toro) and a slew of lethally dangerous vixens lead by Gail (Rosario Dawson). With blood spurting white, yellow, and yes even red; a roster of hot actors that goes on and on; and sound editing that makes you feel like you're the one being punched in the face, SIN CITY is a gift for fans of Miller's art, loaded with style and grit.

Sin City - Uniquely Rare!

With Hellboy, Guillermo Del Toro lovingly recreated panels from artist/creator Mike Mignola's comic book stories and brought them to vibrant life, setting a new benchmark for adaptations that respect their source material. With Sin City, however, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have done more than just recreate the brutal chiaroscuro of Miller's stark post-modern noir artwork, they've captured the essence and the aesthetic of Basin City (as much a character as Marv or Hartigan) and brought its universe and characters to a stunning three-dimensional life. And unlike Hellboy, which suffered from a weak, confusing script, Sin City weaves a Pulp Fiction-esque narrative which snakes through the dark streets and crooked alleyways of this hellish metropolis like a fever dream.

In short, Sin City delivers a blistering ballet of bullets and blood, dames and danger at every turn. It's a kinetic masterpiece of pop culture for the new millennium (and a case could be made that this was the movie that CGI was invented for).

As a Frank Miller fan for over 25 years, I know his work and I know Sin City – and this Sin City will knock your socks off whether you are a fan or a newcomer to the dark delights of his devilish imagination and brutal style. Exceeding my expectations on all levels, this movie ranks as one of the most enjoyable cinema-going experiences I've had in years.

Everything works here. From Rodriguez's cinematography and editing, to the seamless direction (no mean feat when you consider Robert co-directed with Miller and Quentin Tarantino joined the mix as "Special Guest Director"), to the spot-on casting. The script gives Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen and Benicio Del Toro plenty of opportunity to chew the scenery – and they do, especially Rourke, who, despite having his mug buried under a thick layer of gruesome latex, delivers one of the best performances of his career and steals the show as Marv, the giant thug with a broken heart. The ladies hold their own, too. Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Brittany Murphy and Jaime King are all great in their roles, particularly Dawson as machine gun-wielding Dominatrix/Hooker-Godmother Gail. And kudos to Elijah Wood (proving there is life after Hobbits) and Nick Stahl who deliver contrasting performances as vile villains, the ultra-creepy Kevin and the disgusting Yellow bastard, respectively.

Sin City is smart, stylish, sexy and sick. It's also violent and funny. Certainly not a film for the whole family, but for those of us who enjoy our movies rated R, this flick kicks the head and the gut like a mule.

Here's hoping Sin City makes a mint, for there are 10,000 stories in the naked (sinful) city, and this is but a handful of them. I'm already praying for a sequel.

A picture perfect "ten" for this cineast.

A comic book come to live ala the big screen.

Welcome to Sin City. This town beckons to the tough, the corrupt, the brokenhearted. Some call it dark. Hard-boiled. Then there are those who call it home. Crooked cops. Sexy dames. Desperate vigilantes. Some are seeking revenge. Others lust after redemption. And then there are those hoping for a little of both. A universe of unlikely and reluctant heroes still trying to do the right thing in a city that refuses to care. The central story follows Marv (Mickey Rourke), a tougher-than-nails street-fighter who has always played it his way. When Marv takes home a Goddess-like beauty named Goldie (Jaime King), only to have her wind up dead in his bed -- he scours the city to avenge the loss of the only drop of love his heart has ever known. Then there's the tale of Dwight (Clive Owen), a private investigator perpetually trying to leave trouble behind, even though it won't quit chasing after him. After a cop is killed in Old Town, Dwight will stop at nothing to protect his friends among the ladies of the night. Finally, there's the yarn of John Hartigan (Bruce Willis) -- the last honest cop in Sin City. With just one ticking hour left to his career, he's going out with a bang as he makes a final bid to save an 11 year-old girl from the sadistic son of a Senator... with unexpected results.
Based on the Sin City graphic novels by Frank Miller.

I have a hard time seeing how anybody could not be blown away by this movie especially if you are a lover of film. The movie is so rich with story and character development that it almost seeps out of the screen. I think most audience members will walk away with a favorite story line and character whether it be Marv the tough as nails fighter with a heart of gold, or Hartigan the lone bright spot on a corrupt police force, or the flawed but ultimately good Dwight. Each story arc is so rich and deep that you are drawn into Sin City where there are so many tales of good and evil that they crisscross in a patchwork that makes up the very city itself. The movie is the story, it is the characters that make up the story and it is a tale of good versus evil set in the background of a city as rich as the stories that are told about it.

You could rave about the movies beauty as well, the film noir effect, the black and white and the color mixed in that gives the movie its depth and it richness. The use of color is a story in itself the tales may be black and white, good versus evil but the characters and what they bring to the tales are the color, they are that splash of red on an ordinary gray wall, the blood that has gushed out from the battles fought within and without. Its Goldie’s bright light, her golden color that shines on Marv’s heart and makes him wage a battle for her, it is her goodness her color that seeps into him. Granted there are some who may be turned off by the violence and the gore and the ultimate brutality that is the film, but like the characters who revel in it I too reveled in the violence and the brutality and the cost of waging war against evil.

The movie also has the most stellar cast of actors that it is impossible to even know where to begin when talking about their performances. My favorite was easily Mickey Rourke and Marv as he brought a savagery to the film and like the film says he would have been home on any ancient battlefield wielding an axe to another man’s face. He is abrupt, he is passionate and it all fits the character of Marv so well. Then there is Bruce Willis and Ha

Tremendous experience - Sin City is a Wild Ride

Wow – its hard to capture Sin City is words because the movie is intended to be a roll-coaster story that, at its core, is visually stunning. The story is interesting, but certainly not the movie’s forte or focus. Rather, it’s the amazing visual effects and cartoon-based backgrounds. Though movie itself is stunning and, despite its somewhat excessive length, is wonderfully captivating.

Sin City was filmed with the real actors appearing against a black-and-white CGI background – depending on the scene or the emotion, various colors are filled in at various times. It makes for a stunning display of color, realism vs. fantasy, graphics, etc. In Sin City, Quentin Tarantino directs an all star cast that includes: Clive Owen, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Clark Duncan, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Brittany Murphy, Elijah Wood, and more.

The story itself is a merging of three separate – but related stories- all based upon Frank Miller’s gory comic books. Though the stories never fully come together (and they aren’t supposed to), themes emerge throughout that bind the film and characters together: Justice & Redemption.

For Frank Miller fans, Sin City is remarkably honest and faithful to the original comics and stories – containing the gore, the lines and characters. The actors and actresses are all believable – partly due to fine acting and partly due to the visual effects which remove these famous faces far enough from pop-culture and into this unique world.

My review is simple – I didn’t expect to enjoy this movie because I typically do not enjoy comic or superhero remakes. But this movie is so different than anything else available that it is truly a trip worth taking. The story is satisfying – but the concept, the acting and (most of all) the graphics, visuals and gore are tremendous. Well worth a watch. And a re-watch!

Sin City (2005, DVD) Bruce Willis~Mickey Rourke~ New!

Sin City is not your average movie loaded with big name stars like: Benicio Del Toro, Brittany Murphy, Bruce Willis, Carla Gugino, Clive Owen, Devon Aoki, Elijah Wood, Frank Miller, Jaime King, Jessica Alba, Michael Clarke Duncan, Michael Madsen, Mickey Rourke, Nick Stahl, Rosario Dawson and more... This graphic novel turned film directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller with guest director Quentin Tarentino. Visually it is unlike anything you've ever seen. A very graphic and intense movie that is sure to entertain...

Sin City is a guilty of being Awesome!

Sin City is perhaps one of the best adaptations of comic book to the big screen. Robert Rodriguez preserves the genius of Frank Miller (I believe that Batman, The Dark Knight Returns is one of the greatest pieces of LITERATURE of all times).

Sin City is a about a mythical city that feels simultaneously like it is in the past and the future at the same time. It is a town that represents pretty much all that is ugly in people. Sprinkled in this town are three stories where a little bit of what is good in people lurks. The story of a Brute (Mickey Rourke is my hero) out for revenge, a Cop (Bruce Willis...who needs Demi Moore?) that wants to do one good thing, and a Hero (Clive Owen...say no more) in training. Together their stories converge in classic Tarantino style (there is even a guest director appearance by Tarantino) in Sin City.

Rodriguez brings the comic book to the big screen while preserving the medium that it was originally created for. He understands that Sin City is not about Ben Affleck being Ben Affleck.

Sin City is a beautifully shot film, using the Comic-book style of taking snapshots of the action to create the story. This film is really like no other film out there. The violence is pretty gruesome, but Rodriguez gets away with this because it is all done in comic book fashion.

After watching this film, I recommend that you get a drink of water and watch it again. It is that good!
