So, do we really need another stylish action movie based on a comic book? if it is this good we really do... Sin City is one of the best films coming out to theather in the last few years... it is brilliantly shot,mostly in black and white (which creates a very dark atmosphere to the film, very similiar to the original comics). There is a lot of CGI effects but these actually make the shots look good instead of making the film look like a video game.
To top this (shock of the shocks) the cast is actually good and does a really amazing job. Especially Bruce Willis, Benicio del Toro and the latest hollywood cuttie Jessica Alba (well, at least this one can act).
One think that helped was the fact that the script was written by Frank Miller himself, the author of the original comics, a man who understands the Sin City world better than anyone. So you take that, and add the incisive and technical style of directing by Robert Rodriguez, and you have yourself one hell of a movie.
If you were unaware of the comic books and liked the film, they are also highly recomended.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0401792/
