Sin City - April 2005

I’ve never been much for comic books and "Sin City" is based on a graphic novel, which is supposed to be a comic book on steroids. If "Sin City," a live action film, is supposed to look like a moving comic book, then the film-makers succeeded brilliantly.

The plot of "Sin City" is three unrelated but intertwined stories that are pure pulp. Violence, gore and car chases are as common as breathing. There are no lessons to be learned and no reason to see it twice, but "Sin City" provides two hours of comic book-esque entertainment and you can’t really ask for much more.
