5 Star Review   By member NOLApro - Sep 4, 2006   

This is still my favorite movie since it came out. I enjoyed watching the controlled chaos going on in Basin City. I think the crew did a really good job in making this film and portraying that feeling of constant chaos. The characters were distinctive and memorable. I loved the subtle artistic touches that were put in to make it more interesting. Like in the alley shootout scene, the sky turned red in order to give the scene more intensity. Sin City has lots of things like that in it. I loved it. After I watched this film, I was pumped. I got that good movie feeling from it like I am so glad I took the time out to witness this great work of art. Not many films have that affect on me but this one did.

5 Star Review   By member forgotten hero - Mar 25, 2006   

I actually went out to see this opening night which is something I rarely do. I wasn't bored once during the movie because the visuals were simply stunning and the characters were also enjoyable (especially Marv). I read the books after seeing this flick and was surprised to see how faithful the directors were to the book. I mean every scene almost matched the comic flawlessly with the exception of a few pieces of nudity but that's forgivable. The ending was predictable because you probably read the book which is also why the whole thing was in Black and white. As for giving serial killers new ideas; anyone that has ever watched a Bugs Bunny cartoon has to have fantasized about hanging someone's head on the wall at least once. One last thing. It's funny that Canadasucks accuses it of trying to be "Tarantino-edgy" since Tarantino was the guest director. 'nuff said punk asses!

5 Star Review   By member tammisue - Dec 20, 2005   

Strengths: Incredible use of color and characterisations. I had never heard of this comic book and was immediately swept into this film.

Weakness: A couple moments made me turn my head but felt they were important for showing that avenging love and doing the right thing can be incredibly violent.

This movie shot up to my "Top 10". Although am not a fan of extremely violent movies, it was watchable and necessary to the film as the characters were fighting for love, truth, and protection of the innocent. There were times I was so shocked at what I was seeing as I have never seen anything like this one. The amazing use of color actually desensitized some of the more violent scenes as it was "comic bookish". The actors were amazing and the scenery and backdrops were from such a wonderful immagination. There were even a couple of instances where I had to pause the movie as I couldn't believe what I was seeing. And yes...I cried a couple of times too.

Best movie ever! I especially liked the violence, the dancers (Jessica Alba gives me tingly feelings), and the hookers with guns. I also liked the black and white with splashes of color. If the violence or the "message" grinds your gears, tough. Its brilliant movie making!

1 Star Review   By member Moviebuff2005 - Aug 29, 2005   

This movie was deplorable in every aspect! From the slow boring beginning to the overly predictable ending, I could barely sit still through this movie. As tempted as I was to fastforward through the entire thing, I FORCED myself to sit through it in order to give it a fair rating. Granted, the movie producers were going for a black and white effect. Something classy. Memories from an archaic past. Blah blah blah. And this is the only reason why it got 1 star. No, that's not right. It's because I couldn't give it a BIG FAT 0!!! The violence in the movie was uncalled for. Even I felt sorry for those women in the movie and my wife had to leave the room because she was so offended. Thank God my daughters weren't home the night I chose to watch it. How somebody could write up such a ghastly horror wannabe flick is beyond me. It sure felt like a horror, only a cheaper, gross-out scale. Bravo to the producers/writers for giving more serial killers out there ideas on how to murder women. Now we have crazy men portrayed in such acts as hanging women's heads on walls as mantels and eating the live flesh from their fingers and forcing them to watch it being done. Enough said. This was absolute crap! Don't waste your time! I won't even mention the acting because there was not much of it to comment on.

4 Star Review   By member Imperator - Aug 26, 2005   

Strengths: Nicely done special effects for the most part, and great work on the sets

Weakness: too much gore, a little hard to follow if you are not familiar with the graphic novels

A complex weave of storylines and characters, Sin City is a disturbing and surreal movie. Not the most sickening, or violent movie I have ever seen, but it is definitely up there. The sets are in black and white, although some objects and occasionally blood or gore has vivid color. Good visuals in this movie, lending it an old horror movie, or mystery feel to it. The comic book overtones are definitely felt throughout the film, making it a different movie experience then most are used too. I hate to admit but there was two scenes that made me feel a little bit creepy...and I am even more ashamed to admit that it was Elijah Wood that scared that crap out of me, but he was very disturbing. However, I do wish they would have toned down the violence a little bit, by the end of the movie, I was getting pretty tired of buckets of blood(which is a Quentin Tarintino trademark) shooting out all over the place. I would have been harsher on the rating scale, but the gratuitous violence, sex, etc... was what the directors were aiming for to keep true to the comic books. Overall this was a pretty good movie, and I recommend it.

3 Star Review   By member Wavebacker - Jul 14, 2005   

This movie scores points in presentation. Great move to go with black-and-white which really made the violence ( which there as a lot of) more palatable. Rough, violenet storyline that was told in an interesting format. This was really a collection of stories put toegther as one. The distubing violence and mature content made it tough to take/relate to.

4 Star Review   By member magellan - Apr 17, 2005   

Sin City is almost like three movies - two of which are very, very good, and one that doesn't quite measure up. As Kamylienne mentions, the movie is extremely artistic, and possibly one of the more violent movies I have ever seen. Mickey Rourke is absoulutely fantastic, and Bruce Willis, Elijah Wood, and the incomparable Jessica Alba are all pretty good as well. You don't have to be familiar with the comic book to enjoy it - but you do have to be prepared for some gory violence. Worth seeing for the cinematography alone - Sin City is a dark, creative comic book on the big screen.

4 Star Review   By member kamylienne - Apr 9, 2005   

Excellent film. A brilliant piece of artwork, it had every bit the feel of a comic book (even down to the cheesy lines; yeah, the dialogue and acting was dry, but well, what do you want, it's based on a comic book, and from what I understand it's a very faithful representation of the comic). Based on Frank Miller's "Sin City", it's a very violent, graphic world that revolves around corrupt city officials, cops and even clergy, the girls of Old Towne and three men, with three stories, who risk everything to protect the girls they care about. Excellent use of black and white imagery with just occasional dashes of color for emphasis, the scenery is excellent. Elijah Wood plays one incredibly demented and freaky bad guy (certainly a long way from being the little hobbit from the Shire). Warning: extreme graphic violence (they've got a thing with "beheading", ahem, in many ways) and nudity. If you're seeking an uplifting story of human redemption, this ain't it. Not recommended for the faint-of-heart, but, it is an excellent piece of art, worth watching if you can stomach it.
