Sin City is a collection of stories. A collage of intertwined fates that play one after the other, and build up one bloody masterpiece in a mesh of blood and black and white. It's gritty, this city, but full of interesting people. It's brutal and grim, yet stylishly eloquent, with men that are hard and handy and women that are beautiful and unafraid to show it.
It's a shame about Lucille, and a shame about Hartigan, but their stories live on. Empowering tales of love and character. Marv too, though I wasn't sure he was really a goner. A real powerhouse of stars like Benicio Del Toro, Bruce Willis, Michael Madsen, Mickey Rourke, Elijah Wood, and even Rutger Hauer help give a great deal of characters each an intriguing persona. I don't feel like I fully appreciated this movie the first time I watched it, but I did so now. Stylish, violent, and with plenty of stories to tell, that's Sin City.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
If only they'd polished up some of the special effects a bit more, this might've been a high five btw. Black and white makes it easier to camouflage, but it's far from perfect.
