Sin City is a nice place to visit

Robert Rodriguez realizes Frank Miller’s dark and violent world of Sin City with a visually exciting film that truly captures the graphic novel’s aesthetic strengths. The combination of modern cinema technology and film noir storytelling successfully entertains audiences, even though at times the violence can be excessive for those unfamiliar with Miller and Rodriguez’s tastes.

The script integrates three storylines from the novel. First, “The Hard Goodbye”, where Marv (Mickey Rourke), muscular outcast looking for the person responsible for killing his true love Goldie. Second, “The Big Fat Kill”, where Dwight (Clive Owen), a man who takes the law into his own hands against the city’s corrupt law enforcement. Lastly, “That Yellow Bastard”, where Officer Hartigan (Bruce Willis), a cop who risks his life to protect Nancy (Jessica Alba) from a pedophile (Nick Stahl). All three stories are engaging and the actors green screen performances are top-notch.

Sin City is nice to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.
