Storyline Heading
Welcome to Sin City. This town beckons to the tough, the corrupt, the brokenhearted. Some call it dark. Hard-boiled. Then there are those who call it home. Crooked cops. Sexy dames. Desperate vigilantes. Some are seeking revenge. Others lust after redemption. And then there are those hoping for a little of both. A universe of unlikely and reluctant heroes still trying to do the right thing in a city that refuses to care.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Thriller - This is a movie unlike any you've seen. It has sort of a retro 40's look with extensive use of black and white with splashes of intense color. The dialog, which at times seems almost poetic, is also in the 40's style. Throughout the movie the main character's thoughts are spoken which tells much of the story. There are three stories that seem almost independent of each other but are all interconnected at the end, sort of. The ending doesn't make a lot of sense, but fortunately most of the story does. It's a VERY GRAPHIC and VIOLENT movie done in a comic book style.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good Sin City is the most visually inventive comic book adaptation to make its way to a movie screen. While other directors have attempted to remain faithful to the look and "feel" of their source material, Robert Rodriguez has taken things a step further, by using Frank Miller's graphic novels as storyboards and immersing the audience neck-deep in the noir currents of Miller's den of iniquity.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent This isn't an adaptation of a comic book, it's like a comic book brought to life and pumped with steroids. It contains characters who occupy stories, but to describe the characters and summarize the stories would be like replacing the weather with a weather map.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Occasionally very funny, the picture tends to coast on its cosmetics. A first-rate script might have made it a twisted masterpiece, not just a visual entrancer whose purposeful ugliness could probably be rendered only as a cartoon.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 224 moviegoer opinions. Twentysomething males understandably make up the largest percentage of moviegoer opinions. "Sin City" was made for them and they loved it. Nearly half rated it "Fantastic" with most of the remaining half rating it either "Excellent" or "Very Good." You just don't opinions much better than this! Equally important is the very small number of low opinions, especially considering the higher percentage of very low opinions in the other age groups. So, if you're old enough to get into this R rated movie and young enough to enjoy the uniqueness and the extremely graphic violence, "Sin City" is for you!

Now for everyone else. Overall it looks like most will enjoy it, but many will be very disappointed. About two-thirds of adult males truly enjoyed it. As for the ladies, most enjoyed it very much, but again, quite a large percentage didn't care for "Sin City" at all. This is especially true for adult females where about half enjoyed it and half hated it, making it a risky venture. A matinee would be highly recommended.

NOTE: If you decide not to see it at theaters, which would be a shame because of the visual impact of the big screen, it's definitely worth a look on video.
