Walk down the right back alley in Sin City and you can find anything. You may even find a film that was very close to never getting made. Frank Miller, the author if the "Sin City" series of graphic novels this film was based on, is not a fan of Hollywood and promised that he would never sell the...

ConsA Bit Gory for Some

Sin City is one of those films that I heard of and really wanted to go and see at the cinema but because it was technically a black and white film, nobody would come with me. Sad but true. Anyway I bought it the day it came out on DVD and let me tell you I was not disappointed. ----- What is it...

Consultra-violence may put off some

With its glossy comic-book appearance, ultra-violence and fast paced action, Sin City is a a modern classic, and certainly one of the best neo-noir films ever. Robert Rodriguez not so much adapts from Frank Miller's comic books of the same name, as directly transfer them to the big screen. A...

ConsMay be too violent for some

Sin City is just that. A city of sin. Most of the police are corrupt and those that aren't have a low life expectancy. Mercenaries come here, knowing there's bound to be someone who'll give them a job. Politicians run the mob. The clergy commit outrageous acts and get away with it. A portion of...

“Compassion Doesn't Sell”

ProImpressive visual style

ConsAmoral and boring

Looking at the amount of praise this film has received, I felt a need to dissect what I found to be an over the top, poorly conceived and adapted, clichéd, amoral, and fairly tedious film, which completely misuses the medium of film. Sin City is an adaptation of Frank Miller's comics (sorry...

2005 brought with it many great movies and many pretty crap movies but one of the best has to be Sin City. Boasting a cast list of over a dozen 'A' list stars and the tagline, "Walk down the right back alley in Sin City and you can find anything" it was known this was a movie not to be missed...

This is good. It's tough to believe some of the actors never met each other even though their in scenes together. Right, we'll talk about the cast 1st. Benicio Del Toro - wasted. Could have made so much more of this guy. I liked the scenes where he's "dead", their very surreal. Bruce Willis...

Given Sin City (released in 2005) received a LOT of praise (and largely has done well from the reviews written right here on Ciao too), I felt I had to spend a few moments casting my own views on the film for you. Largely because my views differ from those who've rated this film as "5/5 - superb...

Product Information : Sin City (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

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 night time and everything is drenched in rain and violence. Using a unique combination of silvery black and white digital photography with occasional flashes of bright colour 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 love struck Marv, a trench coat-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.
