Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: For all its astronomical body count, Sin City is brazenly, thrillingly alive.
Fresh: Miller's world of rough customers living on the wild side possesses a sordid allure, which the directors dazzlingly deliver to the screen.
Rotten: The movie feels like a reductive exercise. Rodriguez might have accomplished what he set out to do, but I'm not sure he's done anyone any favors.
Fresh: It's a hard, viciously funny little movie, one with all the subtlety of a billy club. But there's artistry here, too.
Both Entertaining and Deep
This movie can satisfy audiences that either want a simple fight movie along with those that want to look deeper and find an intricately woven story beneath. The numerous stars in this movie all go on to create unique characters that case viewers to actually care if something bad were to happen to them. Being based off a graphic novel, it also stays true to the original formula while being able to be easily viewed by those that have never read the graphic novel. The styling and art of the movie are both is interesting but also don't distract from the movie itself. The fight scenes stay vibrant and fresh and throughout the course of the movie, events seen in one part have unique and interesting ways to appear or connect in other scenes. I would whole heartedly recommend this movie as well as spending the extra ten dollars to get the HD version. it is definitely worth it.
